Christmas Present Ideas

According to my sister, most of the christmas presents I suggested in any previous posts (such as in Christmas Beauty Goodies last month,) are all fabulous but way too expensive to give to a friend. And thinking back in those early years of high school when you feel you simply had to give almost all your friends christmas presents, you'll realise that obviously, you had to find presents that were somewhat personal, pretty, and most importantly cheap. Now that we're a bit older, we call this shopping on a budget.

Now finding cheap christmas presents is no easy feat. Fortunately, many brands use this oppurtunity to make gift box sets. One excellent and good-for-community brand is Body Shop. Body Shop makes a huge variety box sets -and most of them are extremely affordable.

Body Shop Almond Oil Daily Hand and Nail Cream -my sister owns this and it smells absolutely delicious. Everyone needs a handcream, esp in winter.

Body Shop Mango Trio Gift Set -Includes a body wash, body butter and sponge. I'm a HUGE fan of Body Shop body butters. They smell sooo yummy and is sooo moisturising. People who have tried the body butter keep going for more. Once my friend even request that I buy her one for her birthday.
Apart from beauty/body product gift sets, there are some great cheap gifts which usually would look boring but make great presents because they are just so classical and your friend would definitely have a chance to use it.

Claires Faux-Pearl Stud Earrings -Mega boring and cheap, but pearl earrings are just so useful, even if they're fake pearls.

American Eagle Outfitters Campus Gardens Scarf -So pretty! And I think this blue works for all skin tones.

Urban Outfitters Horizon Sunglasses -I was so amazed -these sunglasses are now on sale for only US$4.99! These will probably suit most face shapes and white is going to be so 'in' next season!

The mango body butter from Body Shop is great. I got the biggest size like 2 summers ago and it's still going!

This is totally irrelevant to this entry.

Harrods Girl, I'm heading to London next week and would like to know where are the cool shopping streets I should check out this winter? I've been there 2 summers before and shopped Oxford St to death. Bond St is where all the high-end labels are right? I was still a poor student then and didn't go Bond St.

Any warehouses that I can splurge at?

cheerios.

Well, typically the best shopping street would be Oxford Street as that is where loads of high street stores and Selfridges is located. Around Oxford Street is Kings Street, Reagent Street and Bond Street. Another high-end area is Kensington and Sloane Street. Unfortunately, I have no idea where the warehouses are -sorry!

Others:
Yup! Body Shop is fantastic and mostly smells yum!

I think that it's better to look the latest winter fashion trends and find the best fashion gift for New Year!
