It’s time to get organised. Christmas 2020 may not be quite the same but the one thing we can control is presents. This year, more then ever, thoughtful gifts are important to show the people we love – and may not have been able to see that much this year – that we really care. For our first festive gift guide, we’ve rounded up all the best Christmas gifts under £50.

From mega-stretchy workout leggings ideal for both real and food babies to vegan chocolate goodies and men’s grooming kits, we hope you find this helpful.

For the beauty junkie…

They’ll be no Christmas parties this year but does it mean we have to forgo the glitter? Hell, no. Hourglass’s limited edition eyeshadow is soft, light-reflecting and wonderfully dramatic. It’s also vegan so peepers can be given the disco ball treatment guilt-free.

For your pregnant friend…

One of the few good things to come out of this year was the launch of Nike’s debut maternity fitness range. The brand spent three years designing the four-piece collection, consisting of a pullover, sports bra, tank and leggings. Take your pick, but we suspect the leggings – with their mega flexible waistband – will be used for more than just workouts.

With inner pockets to keep things organised and a water-resistant, wipe-clean outer layer, this is an all-day-every-day kinda bag.
