After blasting your student loan on nights out, unnecessary amazon orders and big fat burritos from the Guild, you might be worrying how much further Christmas presents will send you into your overdraft.
Luckily, Liverpool Guild Student Media have found the cheapest and most fabulous budget Christmas presents all under £10, so gather up the last of your pennies!
You might even have some money left over for a final trip to Skint Tuesday’s before Christmas… but let’s be honest, you’re going either way!
Terry’s Chocolate Orange
It’s a right of passage that no Christmas is complete without a ball of chocolate orange goodness and for as little as £1 from Iceland, it’s the winning budget present.
The true legend of Christmas chocolate.
Address: Unit 3/4 Williamson SQ, St John Centre, Liverpool L1 1EQ
So easy, anyone could do it!
An ‘I owe you a meal’ gift voucher
If you fancy yourself as the next Gordon Ramsey, then this is the perfect present to give (and no, pot noodles don’t count).
Get stuck in and rustle up a lovely meal for a family member, significant other or a mate. The only catch is that you’re on washing up duty, sorry!
We all know someone crazy about coffee that would absolutely love this. Not only can these syrups be used for coffee based drinks, but can also be added to a hot chocolate for an indulgent treat.
All Monin syrups are vegan.
For the fixer upper in your life, this Belgium chocolate 5 piece tool kit is bound to do the job!
Chutney is a Christmas favourite, and this trio is a fantastic addition to the cheeseboards (mmmm) over the festive period. Also suitable for vegans!
This set of four beers from around the world is great value for money, even The Brookhouse £1.70 pints on a Thursday couldn’t beat this!
Address: Borden Court, London Rd, Liverpool L3 8JA
This unusual popcorn would be a winning gift for any gin or popcorn lover (the two best things in life, am I right?).
There’s even a cheese on toast flavoured popcorn, the ideal gift for any cheese enthusiast, or possibly a step too far?!
Address: Horrocks Ave, Liverpool L19 5NY
The perfect present for the ultimate party animal! Drinks will never be the same again.
If you’re looking for a present for the food lover who has everything, this might be the one!
I mean how many people have received a giant marshmallow with their face on it?!
Christmas is a great time to give to those less fortunate.
A Charity Donation
This Christmas £10 can provide a family with an improved-breed cockerel and hen, as well as training on poultry farming. The eggs will provide a food source and can be sold for income.
Self Help Africa aims to end hunger and poverty in Africa. With 1 in 3 people living in sub-Saharan Africa undernourished, your donation would improve the lives of those who really need your help.
We hope we’ve made Christmas on a budget a little easier for you!
