Metallic Monogram Sticker Patch £5 Anthropologie
With a mere few days left until Christmas like me you’ve probably got all your key gifts sorted (no?). For me however, it’s always the Secret Santa’s and the friendship gifts where you have a budget to stick to that are the trickiest ones to buy for. I always leave mine till the last minute – afraid to commit incase I find something better that makes my initial choice look meagre. Plus why is it that with the small gift items you feel the need to get the most out of your money? So here I have done the difficult part for you and scoured the market for 30 unusual, inspiring and beautiful gifts under £15. Happy gifting!
