I am so lucky this year – I haven’t had to buy many presents. But if my social network feeds are anything to go by, lots of people still haven’t nearly finished their Christmas shopping!
So here are a few last minute stocking filler/secret Santa ideas that may just get you out of a pickle.
We love this nifty little idea for an age old problem with high heels. Blingbacks are a gorgeous, quality looking gadget that clips on to the back of your high heels and acts as a kind of plaster to stop the heels rubbing and hurting your heels…a problem we’ve all experienced…especially at this time of year with all that dancing away at parties!
They come in lots of designs, are packaged beautifully and won’t break the bank at just £15 from Debenhams (who have a sale on already). The ideal way to bling up a pair of plain shoes, or put some new life into a pair you thought you’d never wear again because they rubbed!
We all know that smoking is no longer cool. It is, however an addition, so therefore not that easy to give up overnight. Electric ciggies have gone a long way over recent years to help stomp out cigarette smoking, with lots of added benefits. They’re legal indoors, so you don’t have to stand outside in the freezing cold while all your friends dance their asses off inside; they don’t contain any of the vile chemicals and tar that you find in normal fags; they will satisfy the need to do something with your hands and…probably most importantly, they’re unlikely to kill you. Some electric cigarettes look a little bit ridiculous, but not Zebra. They look gorgeous, and won’t embarrass you in clubs! Already loved by the likes of James Arthur and Tulisa (who were spotted puffing on them during breaks in the X-Factor) they’re the perfect gift for someone you love…who you’d LOVE to give up smoking! Starter pack is just £12.95
I received one of these kits recently and absolutely love it. The kit contains a beautiful selection of nude colours and step by step guides on how to create different looks. You receive the following products;

- 1 Rounded Shader Brush
- 1 Mini Blender Brush
- 1 Retractable Lip Brush
And instructions for 6 different looks, all for just £25! It’s the perfect gift for make up lovers of all ages, especially if like me, they need a little bit of guidance when it comes to creating new looks. We can’t all be experts you know! There are some other great collections in the range too for nails and face – including the nail art kit LOVED by Beyonces nail artist. Fab. Order online today to still get delivery for Christmas. Be quick!
We see loads of cases for iPads, but rarely get information on items for other tablets. Check out iLuv for some gorgeous covers for Kindles, Macs, Samsung Galaxy’s and any other gadget you can own.
We’re particularly fond of this super bright, unmissable padded number (Belgique) which is just £19.99. I have one and I love it!
So there you go. Some simple but effective items that people will love this Christmas – that won’t cost you a fortune, I’ll add more if I come across them. Let me know if you have any other ideas or spot something gorgeous!
