Shop with Seesiu: The Christmas Edit (9 Secret Santa & stocking filler gifts under £20)
Unorganised shoppers, are you looking for last-minute Christmas gifts that they’ll *actually* like? We’ve got you.
Uh oh, you’ve not finished your Christmas shopping? That’s a slap on the wrist for you, friend.
We can’t blame you though. Considering 2020 has lasted two years and we’re all a bit frazzled, you’re doing pretty well searching for last-minute Secret Santa gifts and budget-friendly stocking fillers. In fact, we salute you for your efforts.
If you’re planning on raiding the £1 store for multipacks of stick-on moustaches or a toilet golf set, stop right there. You can do better. Novelty gifts are fun and cheap, but they’ll end up gathering dust in the attic or sitting on a landfill pile for the rest of eternity. When did you last hear “Wow, that was such a thoughtful gift, I’m so thrilled they got me that!”, about a loo roll covered in Rudolph? Probably never. Well, unless they fell short to the panic buyers, that is.
So that you don’t break the bank, we’ve pulled together some epic budget gifts that will go down well with everyone on your list. And so that you don’t break the earth, when you shop with Seesiu and our free Chrome extension, we’ll offset the carbon emissions. You know, so the environment doesn’t have to suffer because you didn’t start shopping in June like you said you would. (No judgement.)
