Chestnuts searing hot from the oven, traditional carols and mistletoe – Christmas is glorious when it arrives. The trouble comes in the build-up when you’re trying to make ends meet with a gift list the size of Brazil.
Be a savvy shopper this holiday by choosing reasonably priced gifts that’ll leave you with enough spare change to buy a decent turkey. Check out our handy guide for some purse-friendly Christmas gifts for her, ideas for him and something for the kids too.
Christmas Gifts for Her
It wouldn’t be Christmas without the odd pair of socks and pyjamas. And although pyjamas can be viewed as a boring present, truthfully there is nothing better than lazing around on Christmas Day with a pair of cosy jammies on. Plus, if what they say about the average human consuming 5,000 calories on the day is true, you’re going to want something comfortable to slip into after all those pigs in blankets.
These reindeer jammies are almost cute enough to wear at the dinner table and will really get the recipient into the Christmas spirit.
How many times have you been on the way out and at the last minute decided to spruce your talons up with a coating of nail varnish? “They’ll only take 30 seconds” you convince yourself. Next thing its 10 minutes later and you’re still waiting for your nails to get past the non-sticky phase.
9 times out of 10 these occasions turn into an impatient dash with said sticky nails ending up smudged and messy. But just think how much better it could have turned out had you been given a nail dryer to speed things up. If a better Christmas gift for her exists, we don’t know about it.
Christmas Gifts for Men
Do you have a die-hard Simpsons fan in the family? Make their day with these novelty boxers which serve a practical purpose too. Novelty boxers are much better than the standard fare because they show you’ve taken time to think about the recipients interests and found something they really like.
A man – or woman for that matter – can never own too much monochrome. Come the winter it’s tough to look good with a zillion layers on, so the least we can do is try to get some co-ordination going. This jumper is the catalyst to said co-ordination. Add a pair of black skinnies and some brogues to this equation and he’ll be sorted for the office, the restaurant and almost anywhere in-between.
Christmas Gifts for Kids

This must be every child’s dream. Imagine if whenever you fancied a bit of pick-me-up you could ring a bell and be showered with gifts from Santa Claus. Give this gift ahead of the big day to build excitement but be sure to take it away afterwards to avoid bankruptcy.
Transform her into Elsa from Frozen with this gorgeous ice blue dress. If she’s got a friend or sibling the pair can play make believe as Elsa and Anna from the hit Disney film- the perfect after dinner game that’ll keep them occupied while you put your feet up with a good book.
