When it comes to giving gifts, they often say it’s the thought that counts.
Unfortunately this is not completely true, because thoughts do not drown out the silence that fills a room after someone opens a gift that’s not quite right. We can all agree that we don’t want to be on the receiving end of said gift, and certainly not on the giving end either.
Today our experts talk you through ideas for just about everyone you’ll need to buy a Christmas gift for. All our suggestions are split into different budgets so skip to the one that suits you and start shopping!
Budget: Up to £200
We can all agree that the stress of finding someone a gift is daunting enough, let alone having a budget to follow. But fret not! Even if you’re on a budget we’ve narrowed down the best pocket friendly gifts.
Lets start off with the gift for someone who has everything. This can be your friend Rachel, your aunt Monica or your neighbour Phoebe, regardless of whoever it is, this person can be a challenge – because they seem to have everything! Or do they?

Gift giving aside, Christmas is also one of the best times in the year to propose. So if you’re planning to buy a gift for a perfect christmas proposal on a budget, we’ve got you covered too. Not all engagement rings need to break the bank, like our Australian Blue Sapphire Ring.
As far as gift giving goes, the most difficult one to buy is the gift for that colleague that you don’t really know. You know how it goes, as soon as the Christmas lights are up in the town centre groups of friends, families and offices across the country draw a name for Secret Santa.
