Christmas Gift Ideas under £30

Looking for that last minute Christmas gift on a budget? Find some great gift ideas for all the family, all for less than £30.

Bargain Electrical Gifts

A great gift could be a Philips QG3190/00 Grooming Set for a friend or boyfriend who could do with better tools to keep their ‘designer stubble’ looking more sheek rather than sheep…ish.

All the gadgets included in the set are rechargeable, with 10 hours full charge time and 35 minutes shaving time capacity. The blades are all stainless steel and water tight, with rinse shaving heads and trimming attachments with four positions. It also includes nine attachment combs, a charging storage stand, and the ability to shave wet or dry, with precision trimmer for sideburns.

Gifts for Her

Okoia Can6 Candle Lights would be a present many would be delighted to receive, and at £24.99 they are under budget too.

The candles provide the same light as real candles but without the worry of them catching on fire.  Their individual indicators turn green when they have charged up, and this charge lasts for about 15 hours.

Or for something more luxurious try buying the Champneys CHFAC-IR-3GBINFRARED Massager, which anyone with a stressful job would be secretly thrilled to receive this Christmas. The gadget works with infrared heat which opens pores and soothes skin, while also massaging and toning muscles with the two detachable attachments.

Another great beauty gift the girls would appreciate is the Babyliss 8442U Pure Reflection Designer Mirror coming in just under budget at £29.99. This handy mirror is perfect for transporting to and from friends houses when getting ready for a night-out, or for a more permanent place in your bathroom or dressing table.

Gifts for Music Lovers

If you have any music lovers in the family the Sony DEJ021S Personal CD Players Silver is a good choice. It comes with a long list of added features including jog-proof G protection, anti-shock system, and digital megabass with a battery life of up to 16 hours.

Alternatively the latest craze is to listen to music via a micro hi-fi unit – it does not take up much space but provides excellent sound. The Goodmans CD1300CD Micro Hi-Fi System is an affordable model at £24.99. It comes with an FM radio tuner, LCD display, a remote control and CD playback. You can also control individual bass and treble levels, and it has 6watts of total power output.

Gifts for Mobile Phone Addicts

If you have a friend or a family member who could not live without their mobile phone you could buy them a phone accessory to keep them sweet.

The Sony VH300Bluetooth Headset gives you the option to talk while on the go without having to hold a phone to your ear so you are free to do other things such as drive, or carry a number of bags.

A Venom VS7017 Blackberry Case is only £19.99, and will be appreciated by any Blackberry user for the protection it gives to stop their beloved phone from getting scratched when floating around their handbag.

Or a One For All PW 2210 Universal Travel Charger could be the gift your friend uses the most over the coming years. It works like an original charger via a wall socket, it has a built in rechargeable battery for times when you are on the move and up to 100 hours of battery once charged.
