Girly gifts for less than five euros.

This year, a friend of mine decided that we should celebrate Christmas together, two weeks before the actual Christmas. And of course, we’re buying gifts for everyone. There will be eight of us, which means that I have to find seven gifts with a budget of five euros for each (it’s the rule). The first question is : how to find seven different gifts at only five euros? Well, it’s simply impossible, at least if you don’t want to buy useless stuff.

So do I offer seven identical gifts ? Or seven variants of the same gift ? First, I tried to find some in gadgets shops, as I call them. Those shops where you can find small original objects. But it’s impossible to find anything relevant for less than ten euros in there. I had two other ideas: underwear and beauty/wellness product.

It is probably possible to find panties at H&M for less than five euros but they’re not forcefully original or attractive. On etam.com, I successfully found panties in promotion for a little more than five euros. And finally, I paid a visit to Hunkermoller where you can find the promo : 5 panties for 23€. The only problem here is to not mess up with the sizes. A very good friend of mine had already had the idea of coming back from NY with a panty for each of us five. It’s also possible to by panties in different stores for more diversity.

What about the wellness & beauty products ? I went into three different shops : Lush, The Body Shop and Yves Rocher. In the first one, it’s possible to buy blocks of approximately 100 grams of soap for +- 5€ and the same for bath bombs. It’s convenient because they come in different colors, odors and shapes.

At The Body Shop, there were a few promotions, for example there were products that you could buy in three examples for the the price of two. It is possible to buy seven little body butter for 30€, seven shower gels for 15€ and seven body polish for 25€. You can vary the odors (even though there are not so much possibilities).

Finally, at Yves Rocher, there is a promotion on body products smelling cacao & oranger, red fruits and black fruits. You can buy a 200 ml body polish for only 4€, a 200 ml shower gel for only 2€, a 200 ml body milk for 4€ and a 75 ml hand cream for 2,50€. It is then possible to make different combinations and offer two products to each friend (even though the others are not so diverse).

Of course, I wonder if offering a pack of Yves Rocher or soaps to each of them is not very original but with only five euros, it’s a beautiful gesture that will not disappoint. Who doesn’t like red and black fruit odor, who does not like to wash herself with a great soap that you would never have bought yourself ? If you have any other small price ideas, don’t mind sharing. Good shopping to you all !

You can find the Yves Rocher promotion here, the Bath Bombs Lush here, and their soaps here.
