Who said Christmas can’t be done on a budget?
Buying other people presents when you hardly have enough money for yourself is tough. We’re all struggling right now and it can be hard seeing constant adverts for expensive tech products or clothing.
Luckily, you actually don’t have to spend a lot of money to get someone something they’d like. Whether you’re doing Secret Santa with your friends or want some stocking fillers we’ve found some of the best gifts that are under £5 and you can get a student discount too!
The best gifts for £5 and under
Who doesn’t love receiving chocolate at Christmas? For any Ferrero Rocher fan, this giant one is an unreal gift that should last at least a few days.
Cute jewellery doesn’t have to be expensive. This bracelet from New Look is affordable and is a great gift for a friend, sibling, or partner to show your love.
Being an adult is realising how good it is to receive a beauty gift set at Christmas. This Simple skincare kit comes with a face wash and jade roller which is great for anyone skincare obsessed.
This shave trio is a great bargain gift, making shaving your face smooth and easy with no hassle.
If you know someone who can’t leave the house without lipgloss, the e.l.f. lip lacquer is highly rated for its long-lasting shine and non-sticky finish and it’s only £4!
Fluffy socks are essential for winter and everyone knows that a Christmas without receiving a pair of fluffy socks is not a good Christmas.
Gloves are pretty pointless if they’re not touch-screen friendly, as it will mean you basically can’t use your phone for your entire journey. Gift someone a pair to help them keep cosy and warm while scrolling through social media or Spotify on their journey into uni.
There’s nothing worse than making a cup of tea or coffee and it going cold before you have the chance to drink it. The solution? A coffee cup warmer you plug into your laptop to keep your drink nice and warm. A must for any uni student.
What’s better than Maltesers? Maltesers truffles of course, the perfect gift for any Maltester fan.
Makeup wipes aren’t great for the environment or your skin, but makeup pads are a great alternative and they’re the type of present no one wants to buy for themselves but would love to receive.
