Christmas Gift Ideas

Wednesday 22nd November 2017

Christmas is looming so if you haven’t started shopping yet you need to get a move on! It can be difficult to know what to buy for certain people especially when there are a lot of them to buy for. You want to keep the cost down as well as getting your loved ones something worthwhile.

Lucky for you we have collated some great gift ideas available in our many shops within the Harvey Centre and what’s better, all of these gift selections are £30 or under meaning they don’t break the bank!



The Perfume Shop has many great offers on little gift sets, perfect as a stocking filler or even Secret Santa. They have a selection of GHOST gift sets at £8 each which include a different scented 10ml ghost eau de toilette with a 5ml nail polish.

There are also travel size perfumes available. You could always purchase a couple in this size if you’re unsure what to get and that way she has a choice of scents over the party season.


At this time of year you can buy some beautiful festive scented candles which make for a brilliant gift. Clintons sell an array of scented candles and Reed Diffusers from Yankee with medium jar candles priced at £19.99 and Reed Diffusers at £16.99. If you’re not sure on what scent to choose (there are quite a lot to choose from!) Why not opt for a combination gift set instead; The Yankee Candle 5 Votive Gift Set is £9.99 or their small jar gift set is £18.99.


Tina Jayne Boutique is packed with trendy clothes and accessories for everyone, all reasonably priced and with many items at £30 or under. This gorgeous oversized military camo jacket is a huge bargain at £29.99 and camo print is hugely popular at the moment so it is sure to be a winner. 



Whitehouse specialises in selling mens designer clothes stocking brands such as Diesel, Levi and Superdry to name just a few. As a little stocking filler you could treat your man to a Whitehouse gift card for him to put towards something new, especially as Christmas is followed by January sales!


After all that festive eating, one of the main things we look forward to over the holidays is relaxing in front of the TV so why not treat your man to some new viewing material from HMV? You can pick up the new Micky Flanagan 3 DVD stand up box set for £19.99 or there are always plenty of films to choose from in their ‘2 for £20’ DVD offer, including new releases such as ‘Wonder Woman’ or ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2’


Hawkins Bazaar is the best place to go for all your gadget needs and lets face it, we all know those men who never really grew out of enjoying toys. If you have a loved one just like that then this Syma X13 Drone would be the perfect gift for them! At £30 it is a real bargain and will be great for big kids to enjoy with little kids too.



This Unicorn light from Hawkins Bazaar is the perfect little gift for your little girl and she will love this novelty way to light up her bedroom! For other stocking fillers and extras why not try Poundland; they sell some brilliant little gift sets, colouring sets or dress up jewellery as well as packs of sweets and chocolates including chocolate coins (because no stocking is complete without chocolate coins!)


The Works sells everything from books and games to toys and arts and crafts so it’s a great place for gift inspiration. They also have money saving offers such as their’ 2 for £10’ gift range meaning you can stock up! This offer includes activity sets such as ‘Alphabet bingo’ or ‘Dough Tastic Cupcake Creations’ or art sets such as ‘paint your own unicorn’ or a ‘glass stone art set’.


Argos has some great deals in the run up to Christmas and tons of choice as you would expect. How about the ‘My Little Pony’ Cutsie make up bag for £24.99 or a ‘Transformers’ Optimus Prime action figure with 3 Step Hyper Change also for £24.99.  Argos also has offers on toys too including 2 for £30.


If you’re still undecided don’t forget that many of our shops sell gift vouchers so you’re loved one can choose their own gift. From fashion shops to Cineworld, we have you covered.
