    Ideas for pressies for my daughters friends.. pleaseeee

    Ok, beloved daughter has saved up about £25 to get her friends some little pressies for Christmas. Has anyone got any ideas for lil girly pressies for about £3-£4? They would be for 14 to 15 year olds.

    I saw the cheapy bracelets from dealxtreme, but from what I've read they are nasty.. lol

    Any ideas appreciated.

    Chips xx

    Lol, no worries xx

    She's gonna have a look in Claires, but it tends to be a bit samey from there sometimes.

    I know that ppl on here can find some real nuggets of gold that her friends will think she spent loads on! lolllll

    Noted this from MSE site, might be useful and have the personal touch. Good deals for boxes of sweets around that can be divided up, and I think you can get the wrapping paper in rolls for 50p at florists. (Saw some the other day local to me)

    A mug of sweets.

    This is the type of thing you see on sale for £5 to £10; yet you can do it youself with ease. Simply get a few cheap large mugs from a discount store and stuff it full of sweets and chocolate. Then wrap it up in cellophane and tie some snazzy ribbon round it. It can also work for adults just swap the sweeties for posh chocolates.

    search for mopod on amazon some of them are only a few pence

    there was a silver locket on Amazon the other day - I bought it reduced to £7.50 from over £25 it would be a lovely gift and she could put her favourite photo in it.

    :oops: Sorry, not so good. When I started adding a few to my basket they charged £3.95 postage for each item!

    what about these fcuk scented bracelets? hotukdeals.com/ite…-fo she'd probably have some money left over to spend on herself & they will have presents that look as though they've cost more than they have :thumbsup:
