AD. This post is in conjunction with Boots UK but all thoughts are my own.
They do say the very best things come in little packages – and the same can be said at Christmas! It’s not about spending lots of money on the largest and most expensive gift possible, but about celebrating all of the magical moments and little joys that are scattered throughout the festive season.
With the cost of living continuing to rise, so many of us are having to tighten the budget, so this Christmas, Boots UK are on a mission to help you give more for less, helping you to shop for gifts that won’t break the bank but still provide the magic of giving presents!
Using their handy Christmas gift finder tool, you can specify a budget, choose a recipient and find plenty of wonderful gifting ideas for loved ones. In fact, when I checked – there were over 200 gift options under £5!
Here are a few of my favourite picks…

Perfect for those who love to travel, these mini body butters come in three fruity scents – Peach Paradise (peach and raspberry), Vanilla Pears (vanilla and patchouli) and Very Berry (red berries and rose).
