Thrifty gift guide

The thrifty gift swap parcels should be starting to arrive at doors up and down the country this week: I'm excited!  And if you're also needing to be thrifty when Christmas shopping for your nearest and dearest, how about some of these beautiful items, which can all be had for under £15?  Bargain!

1. I love everything designed by Bread & Jam, and this mug (via Folksy) would make a perfect gift for someone special, £8.50

2. How about picking up a poster for their favourite film? The ones designed by Claudia Varosio are stunning and simple, and only £12 to boot. I'm hard pressed to say whether I want the Ghost World or the Singin' In The Rain one more. And now she does book designs too! 

3. Oh Comely subscription, only £8 for a 6 month subscription, if you order before December 14th. I've already ordered two of these, as they make a perfect gift for those who you may not see over the festive period.
4. Rob Ryan tea towel from To Dry For, £9.95. Or if that's a little twee for your tastes, how about one emblazoned with 'A meal without wine is like a day without sunshine'. Now that's a sentiment I can get on board with.

5. For a booklover, the Pride & Prejudice brooch by House of Ismay via Folksy, £10, would be well-received.

6. Or, for the kick-ass women in your life, how about this Feminist necklace from Sugar & Vice (via Etsy), £11?

Have you spotted any bargains this Christmas?


  1. I really like those film posters!

  2. Thanks for the heads up about oh comely! £8 really isn't bad for three issues plus a nice freebie gift.

  3. Love that Ghost World poster and her others are beautiful too!
