Fabulous Gifts for Under £50.........

There seems to be a lot out there at the moment about what to give the person who has everything, and some beautiful, incredibly priced gift ideas that I certainly won't be buying for anyone this year, if ever.

Recently having been asked to write a piece on gifts over £2000 it was interesting just how hard it was to find a selection that anyone would want. Overkill was very much the name of the game and I came away from it feeling quite disheartened, I have to admit, not because I wasn't going to be the recipient, but because frankly, I'd feel ridiculous if I was given any of them.

Here are my ten favourites of the moment which won't set you back more than £50. All with quick delivery.

Aspinal of London Leather Billfold Wallet - £39 - for the luxury loving man

Grey Herringbone Cashmere Scarf - now £44.95 down from £90 - he'll have no idea how much you spent!

Diptyque Tuberose Candle - £38 - for scented candle loving girls

Laura Mercier Colour Wardrobe Palette - £50 - complete set of colours for makeup junkies

Thomas Lyte Leather Travel Card Holder - £50 - luxury for girls

Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily Body Shimmer - £30 - gorgeously scented and sparkly

Pure One mini DAB Digital Radio - £44.95 - perfect for grans and mums

Power Traveller Power Monkey - £17.95 - for absolutely everyone

X-Mini Max Portable Stereo Speakers - £28.01 - clever and powerful

+J Jil Sander for Uniqlo Cashmere Sweater - £79.99 down to £49.99 - luxury at a great price.


I could go on, but I'll stop there. Where the gadgets are concerned, these are three that I already own and wouldn't be without, and I've also given them as gifts several times. The Heavenly Gingerlily Body Shimmer is also gorgeously scented and sparkly rather than shimmery. I totally love mine!
