Christmas Gift Ideas ALL £10 or UNDER!


Thoughtful Christmas gifts don't have to be expensive.

If you are looking to keep a tight rein on spending this festive season, in view of the current cost of living crisis, then check out these gift suggestions which are all between £2 and £10.

I think you will be surprised at what lovely items you can find from UK Small Businesses within this budget!

In this blog there are gift ideas for all ages and stages, both adults and kids.  Some would make ideal Secret Santa presents too.

So here are our Top Christmas Gifts from the Small Businesses on Shopitnear, in ascending price order:
