I drive my husband mad in the run up to Christmas with my mantra about gifts, “It doesn’t look a lot.” We all have to work to a budget, but sometimes a gift needs something extra, finishing touches, something thoughtful. Things that make Christmas gifts look more.
When Swizzels asked me to join their Christmas campaign, I thought I would come up with some ideas to make Christmas gifts look more using their sweets.
Whether it’s for the kids, a relative or a teachers gift, here are some gift ideas using Swizzels sweets.
Ideas to make Christmas gifts look more with Swizzels
Desk Tidy / Pen Pot
Big is a bit of a stationery addict. Can’t think where he gets it from! A pen pot with some pencils and some Swizzels sweets added is an inexpensive gift that he will love, and so much more thoughtful then just a pen pot on its own.
I love giving books at Christmas. A few Swizzels sweets added makes your gift look more. You could even had a few sachets of hot chocolate and a bookmark too.
Cosmetic Bags / Purses
Whether it’s for a grownup, a teenager, or a younger child, adding things to a cosmetic bag is a great way to make Christmas gifts look more. Adding some Love Heart sweets to a coin purse adds more sentiment to the gift.
Picture frames are always a hit with the grandparents. Especially if you add a picture of the grandchildren. But why not add their favourite retro Swizzels sweets too for a finishing touch.
Whether you are buying a “Best Auntie” mug or a reusable cup for the teacher, fill it with Swizzels sweets and they make great gifts from the kids.
Another one for the stationery fans. Add some Swizzels sweets as well as pens and erasers to a pencil case is a simple and effective way to make Christmas gifts look more.
I’m not a huge fan of giving vouchers for Christmas, as I think savvy shopping can get people a lot more for your money. And I don’t like people seeing what I have spent. But some people are hard to buy for, you don’t always know what toys or books kids have already, so sometimes a voucher is a good option. But you can make a voucher look more with inexpensive items. This tin was from the Poundshop. Fill it with Swizzels sweets and suddenly the gift is so much more than just a voucher.
Secret Santa Gifts
We always have a Christmas get together with all of our friends and we do a Secret Santa for the kids. I picked up these Swizzels bath set and lip balm set from B&M stores and added some real Swizzels sweets to it to create a yummy smelling gift!
