The One Pound Gift Challange with Her Pretty State of Mind


So the idea behind this post was simple - finding five gifts for one pound. I've seen a few people do it on youtube and wanted to give it ago too. I persuaded my flatmate to take part as well so it would be more fun - she has a blog too at Her Pretty State of Mind. I have always been a big fan of shops like poundland, poundworld, B&Ms and home bargains and wondered if I could do all my Christmas shopping in there. Hopefully this post will give you ideas if you are on a very tight budget or even if you just need a couple of extra stocking fillers. You might notice although the plan was to buy five gifts I bought six... I only noticed after I had taken the pictures and was wrapping them. That just sums me up really. 


Mug: Poundworld | Washi Tape: Staples | Candle: Primark | Socks: Poundworld | Maltesers: Poundworld | Sign: B&Ms
Buying for Eilidh wasn't to tricky - living with someone you know just what they like. Not only does she love mugs (she has way too many) but this one is perfectly her! I'm always getting up to make the tea in the evenings. She has been talking about washi tape and I noticed staples had a large variety for only £1 so I picked that up too. Candles are a blogger cliche and I think Primark do some great ones and their little jar are also only £1. Their bigger jars are also great value for money at £4 so you might want to think about picking those up too. 

I couldn't resist these cute elf socks which are super soft and perfect for Christmas morning. This sign also sums Eilidh up and I thought it would go really well in the neutral tones of her room. Finally it wouldn't be Christmas without some chocolate and Maltesers taste better from a box don't they?

I hope you enjoyed this little festive post. Eilidh will be blogging about what she got me over on Her Pretty State of Mind so check that out too. She did a really good job! 

My mum and dad are coming to get me tomorrow so I'm going to be spending the rest of today cleaning the flat and wrapping presents. I can't wait to be home and spending time with my family. Incase you havn't already seen it I also posted a Christmas Wishlist a couple of weeks ago.
