Best British-made Christmas gifts for under £20

Share Post:

The ultimate list of British-made Christmas Gifts, all for under £20!

Secret Santa, stocking fillers and presents for class teachers; sometimes you need a Christmas gift that is fabulous but won’t blow your entire festive budget. We bring you our pick of British-made Christmas gifts that have plenty of wow factor, but are all £20 or under.

1. Felted Soap – Little Beau Sheep

This felted soap is enriched with pure lanolin and wrapped in 100% natural wool.

The wool acts as a soap saver and the soap lathers through it. The wool continues to shrink and felt to the soap with use so the soap lasts a lot longer than an un-felted bar. All you are left with at the end is a small ball of wool that is completely biodegradable.

The wool is natural, undyed wool and is gently exfoliating on the skin, it’s like having a soap bar and flannel all in one. It will not slip out your hand as easily as an ordinary bar and does not hold germs due the natural antibacterial properties of wool. It’s a fun and woolly way to wash, the perfect soap for children and adults alike!

 

2. The Beach Towel Clip – ‘The Beach Towel Clip’ jdmdesigns

This Christmas why not buy the beach lover in your family a set of 100% British made ‘Beach Towel Clips’.

The multi award winning clips are supplied in a handy cardboard box.

Don’t forget when it’s time to go home, pick them up, pack them up & use them again.
