Fantastic Fashion Gifts for £35 or Less?

Fantastic Fashion Gifts for £35 or under!

Hello lovelies, today I am writing a post of some gorgeous gift ideas I have found on the interwebs, and as it only *drum roll please*.... 61 days until Christmas, I thought it was very fitting and could be a little useful to any of you who has an eye for a cute and original gift. 
This is a bloggers competition held by - do check them out! They review different gift vouchers from just about anything you can imagine; so brilliant for finding gift idea inspiration or to even just see what is out there. If you write a blog and love finding lovely gift ideas, you should definitely go and enter too :-)
With the limit of £35 per gift, I did a little research in store and on the net for lovely, fashionable and quirky gifts and here is what I found!.

Mini Chocolate Fountain -£20. Matalan
As soon as I saw this I knew I wanted it. I knew it was something pretty much everyone in my life would want to receive as a gift. Its so adorable, and would be brilliant for parties, sleepovers, or to just share with the family! Most chocolate fountains are so expensive to buy or rent, so this mini version is ideal. I actually think it looks really sleek and fashionable, and would look gorgeous in any kitchen.

Benefit:  Confessions of a Concealaholic Kit, £28.50. Debenhams.
I swooned and slightly dribbled over this when I first spotted it online. Any girl that loves beauty and make-up would love a gift like this I am sure. Benefit is quite a high end brand, too, so it is lovely they have put together a gift set with a few different products so people can try them out at a smaller price. This set includes That Gal Primer, Boi-ing Concealer in 01 and 02, erase paste, brightening camouflage for eyes and face, lemon aid eyelid primer, eye bright eye brightener and even two concealer brushes! I imagine a flawless complexion with this little beauty kit! I think for just under £30 this is a complete steal and I will definitely be purchasing this and another Benefit set for Xmas gifts.

£35. Boots.
This perfume is described as edgy, with oriental and exotic floral notes in it. I had a sniff of it in Boots last week (along with the other Big Pony Collection scents) and this one was by far my favourite. It smells gorgeous and as it self-describes, exotic. It comes just at the limit of the price range of £35, this gift set includes 50ml perfume and a 200ml body lotion, which I think personally is a great deal for a Ralph Lauren perfume, let alone for a 50ml bottle AND the body lotion included too. I think this would make a gorgeous gift for any lady in your life, as it in my opinion has a very beautiful scent I think everyone would love to wear. I absolutely adore the packaging of the bottle of all of the Big Pony perfumes, I think they have been designed beautifully. 

 Black Fold Over Satchel,
£35. River Island
With the  'fold over' handbags being right on trend this season, I thought this was a classic take on a very fashionable piece to an outfit. It has a zip front and a buckle detail. Every girl loves a classic LBH (little black handbag) right?! I just fell in love with it the moment I saw it and had visions of me giving this my little sister on Christmas day, seeing sights of her gleefully throwing in all her junk and walking around town wearing it with price and joy. I just adore it. I know a lot of ladies will too. Its a beauty. I think it worth way more than £35, I would pay more for this as it is a little stunner.

£32. Topshop.
I would be lying if I said I didn't absolutely adore the 'skulls and studs' fashion trend which everyone is wearing at the minute. I am not usually one for trends, but think these look so quirky and original.  I especially love this pair which are heavily studded, making them a statement piece to any outfit. I know any fashion lover/trend setter would love to receive these bad boys as a gift for Christmas  any time!

What do you think of my gift ideas for a fashionable and unique individual?
