get to boots. 3 for 2 so you could get some presents for family and probably get a free one for your secret santa

Is it meant to be a joke or something useful/serious?

LUSH if you can get anything within that budget, things like thick festive sock/slipper thingies.

Some nice beauty buys in marks and spencer at half price, like the limited collection palette. Very wearable colours and decent quality. Currently £7.
Or some 1ct look sterling silver and cubic zirconia cluster earrings in Argos at £9.99. They look more expensive than that. Just put them in a nicer box than the free one you get...

Same as Henvig says, I was looking at M&S earlier and some of the "beauty" gift sets for £10 and under are really good, like the Royal Jelly gift sets, one of the large ones is £7.50.

get her one of the make up sets I posted from morrisons

I opted out this year because most by gift sets, i don't use them so not the best gift. I got slippers one year from New Look loved those.

*buy*

How well do you know her?

How well do you want to know her?:{

secret Santa, public disappointment

I got a thermos food flask as a secret Santa a good 6 years ago and still use it regularly in the winter for pasta/noodles/soup... anything that saves having to slog through yet another sandwich at lunchtime!
They can be pricey but there are a few to be had on Amazon Warehouse around or just over a tenner.....
amazon.co.uk/lit…cup

one year I got a small (Half size) bottle of Jemison whiskey...
I've bought a gum ball machine and loads of bags of sweets.
small box of nice chocs (leonidas etc)
see if you can get pandora beads or whatever cheap online. Depends on her interests.
Lush is good.
if she's into her brands maybe a MK keyring or something?

When stuck last year, I got a really nice adult colouring book, and some fine tip pens she really liked it - so I have been told.
The Works usually have a good selection, I got one full of Indian Mandalas and ethnic wall painting type stuff from the epic Hindi poems.

(No she was not an Indian)

I am half expecting to get a coloured in one - framed - this Christmas.

exactly the questions i was going to ask!

I would say no to make-up, bcos if anything like my almost 20yr old she will be fussy and have particular brand/colours.

Body shop do gifts sets and usually a voucher code about so you will have change to get some chocolates. As much as I love Lush it wont be a secret when you walk in with that gift as smell it a mile off.

My daughter gone to so much effort for her secret santa hope she don't end up with some **** joke gift.

Boots 3 for 2 on toiletries is always and idea or it depends on how well you know them maybe a personalised calendar.... If she likes to wear make up you could get a nice set of make up brushes for heror if she likes wine you can get 3 for £10 mini bottles in Asda or Aldi

ive just bought for secret santa, i got a vodka gift set with the minature bottle and glass with lindt chocs in for £5 cant go wrong with them little spirit gifts, also baileys,prosecco and rose wine x
