Christmas gift-giving can be super fun (it’s a chance to show off how well you know your mates, duh) but it can also be a tad stressful if you’re the type of person who wants to get their gifts *spot on*.
With 2022’s end-of-year festivities coming around a lot quicker than we all expected, we’ve officially hit prime time to start gift shopping. Now, take it from us: the trick to buying the right gift is planning ahead of time and comparing your options online. Whether you’re shopping for the practical pal who prefers useful gifts, eyeballing beauty sets that offer real bang for your buck or strategising your buys based on various budgets, we’ve got a gift guide for every niche.
When it comes to the bestie who always turns up in the most stylish outfits, is on top of all the latest trends and is, quite frankly, a little hard to shop for, here are 30 under-£100 gift ideas, all hand-picked by me, R29’s fashion editor.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
