It's beginning to look alot like Christmas..............
The shops are filled to the gunnel's with Christmas goodies, gifts and decorations, we can't ignore it any longer and the sensible among us will be already starting to pick up a few gifts here and there.
It can be a very expensive time of year but it's still nice to be able to give a little something to everyone, and £5 is usually the amount set for office 'Secret Santa's' or Stocking Fillers.
It's true, you can't get much for a fiver these days, but I have managed to route out a fair few little skincare gems for you, and all of them are of course either 100% natural or as natural as possible for the money.
OK lets dip in.............
My first two are from Our Tiny Bees Skincare Company, local to myself they are one of my favourite natural beekeeping companies, everything is 100% natural and superb quality.
The Honey Bath Melt Bar is £3.95, looks like an amazing bar of white chocolate and is certainly better on the waistline than a real bar of chocolate!!
The Honey Lip Balm is £3.95
Both can be purchased online here
The next few are from another of my favourite all natural companies again local to me in Derbyshire
Both wonderfully festive themed soaps are 120g each, all natural and only £4.50 each!
Olive & Lemon cuticle Balm £3.95
Mandarin & Olive Hand Balm and Mint & Avocado Foot Repair Balm are both mini sized tubs at 10g each all 100% natural and priced at £2.50.... yes that's right £2.50 each!!!
Pure Thoughts do 6 types 10g mini tubs from the two above to body butters all priced at £2.50 each.
So you can spoil your recipient with two of these for the £5!!!
Full sized 120g soaps 100% natural, choose from a variety of blends £3.75 each or you can mix and match with mini 25g bars for £1.25 each.
Kukui & Shea Butter Lip Balm 100% natural will quench even the driest lips! £3.95
All Pure Thoughts products are beautifully packaged and really give excellent quality and value for money!

Everyone loves a bit of Burts Bees my next few are from their website directly, as prices can vary depending where you buy from.
Burts Bees Lip Balm & Cuticle Balm, currently reduced to £4.19 here
Burts Bees is very good at doing these excellent
value kits, this in my opinion is the best and most versatile, it contains two hand creams, a foot cream, cuticle cream and two lip balms.
Although this is £12.99 it can easily be split down into three separate gifts bringing the cost well below the £5 mark each, if you need more than one £5 pressie!
Get yours here
Figs & Rouge Vanilla & Orange Lip Balm, very festive feel to the flavour and who doesn't love their vintage inspired tins??
Feel Unique's Price is £4.95 get yours here
Weleda Mini Wild Rose Body Lotion, lovely packaging and a steal at £3.95
We all love a bit of chocolate and if we can't indulge at Christmas then when can we?
I've found two beautifully festive gifts from ChocOnChoc, a UK company specialising in handmade chocolate gifts that are unusual!
How adorable is this Pink Snowman Bar? Comes in other styles too, Santa & Penguin
If white chocolate is your thing then you will love this small Igloo & Polar Bear
Finally though, these last few just missed the £5 mark, but if you can find an extra £1 down the back of the sofa then these are great value gifts too!
Liz Earle 30ml Cleanse & Polish & mini muslin cloth, very nicely packaged within a festive star tin

Faith In Nature Shower Gel & Foam Bath nicely packaged £5.99 from Lucy Rose here
Burts Bees Beeswax Lip Balm Gift Tin £5.99 from Burts Bees online here
Phew!! It took some doing but I hope you will agree there are some pretty good gifts here for a fiver!!!
Till next time my lovelies!
