Secret Santa Shopping Guide!!

Holidays are coming, holidays are coming.... I'm feeling a bit Christmassy!!

I know a lot of people do Secret Santas (my friends and I do) so I thought I'd be the super nice person I am and give you some ideas if you're struggling! I'm also doing this because I'm trying to cut down on shopping for myself just now, for two main reasons:

a) I am skinto. To the extreme.
b) I always feel bad buying myself things near Christmas. What if someone has bought me that? And shouldn't I be spending my money on other people??

So, I am creating a mini gift guide for £10 and £20 budgets! As you can see, I've been a wee bit relaxed with prices (eg something for £10.20 I've put under the £10 section) and obviously some items could have fit under different 'friend' categories, so just have a little look and enjoy (you can click on the pictures to make them bigger!)!
All prices are correct as of November 23rd 2011, and do not include P&P costs.

Got £10 to spend?

The 'Find me a Naked dupe and I'll love you forever' Beauty Friend:

The 'I can't live without my Wii/Mac/multi-flavour coffee machine' Gadget Friend:

The 'I'm saving the world one paper bag at a time!' Nature-Loving Friend:

The 'Pink & Sparkly & Fluffy make me happy!' Girlie Friend:

The 'Just buy me whatever. Or don't buy me anything. Whatever.' Awkward Friend:

Hope this gift guide gave you some gift ideas! For OTHER PEOPLE, not for yourself. I know people get confused; at least I do. =p

Thinking of purchasing anything? Let me know!!
