Christmas is just around the corner and with that comes the daunting task of finding affordable gifts for your family and friends that they are actually going to appreciate.
Getting candles, scarves and vouchers every year begins to wear thin after a while, so today I am going to share with you my seven favourite stores which offer quirky, unique and affordable gifts that are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face!
7 Unique & Affordable Websites For Christmas Gift Shopping
ASOS is first on my list as it is possibly my number one favourite place to shop for Christmas gifts. With their wide selection of clothing, shoes, accessories, homeware, jewellery, novelty gifts, books and games, you are sure to find something unique for any recipient no matter how difficult they are to buy for!
There is something for men, women and children, and ASOS cater for any budget. If you are looking for something affordable just as a token of thoughtfulness, or are interested in a designer item for a special someone then ASOS is without a doubt the place for you.
I only heard of this one as a Neon Sheep recently opened their doors in my hometown, and I couldn’t be happier that they did. In store and online you will find a wide selection of quirky homeware, hair accessories, games, clothes, handbags, jewellery, stationery, games, kitchenware and various other knick-knacks.
With their extraordinarily low prices for the quality of the items that they have on offer, this one is too good to miss. I absolutely have to have a nose around the store every time I take a trip into town.
I have my friend to thank for this one, who told me about Scribbler when I asked her, ‘where can I find quirky and unique greeting cards?’
As well as having a wide range of obscene, hilarious and perhaps radical greeting cards, they also have a selection of very funny gifts that are sure to spark a reaction when they’re unwrapped.
From books, toys, games, t-shirts, socks and other random finds, make sure that you know the giftee can handle a joke before you buy them a present from this store – otherwise, you might land yourself in some very hot water!
NOT ON THE HIGH STREET
As the name suggests, Not On The High Street offers a wide selection of products that you wouldn’t find anywhere else. From handmade homeware items to personalised clothes, jewellery and other knick-knacks, you are sure to find something truly one of a kind from NOTHS.
With a handpicked selection of popular choices for men, women, children and couples, you will find something thoughtful and special no matter what budget you are working with.
I think Firebox might be the best site on this list if you are looking for something that you will not find anywhere else.
A quick glance at today’s homepage shows me personalised car air fresheners with your face on, a ‘make your own halloumi kit’, a Pennywise balloon lamp and bread slippers.
If that wasn’t intriguing enough – their products are super affordable and you are guaranteed to find the perfect novelty item that will have your friends and family in hysterics.
Despite the name, Menkind is not reserved for gifts just for the male population. If you are shopping for somebody who has a passion for gadgets, games or pop culture, then Menkind is the place to be!
With a wide selection of board games, Funko Pop! Vinyl Figures, drones, earphones, computer accessories, virtual reality headsets and gaming essentials, you are guaranteed to find something to put a smile on the face of any tech-loving person in your life.
I WANT ONE OF THOSE
Finally, last but certainly not least, I Want One Of Those is your one stop shop for gifts for all the family. With a varied selection of T-shirts and hoodies with your favourite pop culture references, stunning homeware including soft furnishings, candles, ornaments and wall art, tech and toys including video games, earphones, 18+ games and lego, there is bound to be something on IWOOT that every person will love.
With unmatched pricing, plus regular special offers, you are bound to complete all of your Christmas shopping in one place without breaking the bank.
