Stocking fillers and 'Secret Santa' presents for under £10 :)

I absolutely love Christmas. I love Christmas shopping, I love going home and spending time with my family and friends, I love the food but I hate being skint after it all! It can all be rather expensive, especially being a university student too, so I've put together some gifts all for under £10. I love all of these gifts, a few I do have already, but they are cheap enough for stocking fillers, a 'secret Santa' gift, or just a little extra to a main present :)

I absolutely love this shade of lipstick. It is a cherry red, dark enough to look good with burgundy and other winter colours, but not too dark to make you look gothic in the pale winter months. You can see me wearing mine in the top picture here. I really love Kate Moss lipsticks, they're cheap and cheerful, yet they're really nice to wear too. They're matte yet don't dry out your lips, I've asked for a light pink one for Christmas :)

I love piling gold rings up on my finger, and I think this inital one would go perfectly with all my others. I usually dislike dangle rings, but this one is pretty simple and quite short so wouldn't be too annoying.

I only tried out this product recently as I had to get an extra something in the '3 for 2' offer, but I'm so glad I did, it's actually incredible! If I put it on at night before I go to bed, the next morning my hands feel so soft and lovely! The mini version is the perfect size to keep in your handbag too :)

Elf DVD - £3.64
Elf is my favourite Christmas movie ever, it makes me laugh so much everytime! My sister used to watch it every single day of December when we were younger, and when I used to live with her, I literally heard her laugh everytime too. Everyone should own Elf on DVD, and everyone should watch it every December! :)

Topshop Christmas Socks - £3.50 (Or 3 for £8)
Everyone needs some nice snuggly Christmas socks to wear under their boots and just general wonder around the house in. Topshop have some lovely Santa/ gingerbread man/ fairisle ones this year which are perfect for all :)

I have two Cath Kidston mugs that my boyfriend treated me to before and I love them. They're bigger than the average mug, so they're perfect for a nice big cuppa tea, and they have such lovely designs and patterns too :)

I bought this for myself a while back when it was on offer for about £4, so if you look around you might be able to find it cheaper too! I absolutely love the design of the tin and I'm gonna use it to store all of my lipsticks in! I always have a Vaseline nearby and Winter is the perfect time to get someone some Vaseline with all the cold weather and chapped lips! :(

Every girl loves lipgloss, and every girl loves Soap and Glory. This lipgloss has something in it (I can't find mine right now to read what it actaully is) but it makes your lips tingle and enlarge slightly so you have a nice big Christmas pout! Haha I've explained this terribly, but it's pretty cool :)

Just a tiny gift for the Christmas season. I love Carmex lip balm and I always have a pot on the go. It's basically the exact same as Vaseline but it seems to leave your lips all tingly like you can feel it actaully working, and it's in a lovely cherry flavour :)

 Now everyone loves the Yankee Candles, but not everyone can afford the price tags. With the smallest usually being about £8, they're not the cheapest presents, but why not get a sampler for £1.80 and then they can decide for themselves if they like it enough to buy the full product! They still burn for up to 15 hours and they can be put into any cute containers to melt :)
I'm yet to try out any Models Own nail varnishes, but I've heard nothing but good things about them! At only £5 they don't break the bank, and the beetlejuice collection have some gorgeous shades. They seem to change colour as you move your fingers in the light so you can have a dark green shade with hints of pink in the light :)

As with the other chocolate oranges, you can more than likely find these on offer in places for as low as £1 each, and I can confirm that these are absolutely gorgeous! A mix of the normal Terry's Chocolate Orange with tiny bits of popping candy inside, they are perfect for a stocking filler :)

These are tiny little balls that stick to your wet nail varnish and look so cute! I previously wrote a whole review on them here if you would like to read the whole thing :)

I bought these for myself at the start of uni this year, and they actually put me in such a good mood when I have to do boring written work! They're so cute and cheap and would make any student, or anyone who has to do paperwork happy :)
I've only tried this once before when my housemate gave me a cup full, and I've been lusting after it ever since! I love hot chocolate and I love white chocolate, they are just so perfect together and lovely for the cold Winter months :)

Thanks for reading :)
