fashion: MY TOP SECRET SANTA BARGAINS; BEAUTY SPOT.
Last year's Secret Santa saw me leaving the office on Christmas Eve with a rainmate, chocolate body paint and a Maradona mouse mat. They misheard me when I told them my idol was Madonna. This year I've come up with my own stocking fillers - all under a tenner.
For the boys this Lynx Mini Traveller set has two shower gels, deodorant and mini antiperspirant complete in a cute carry case.
It's a bargain pounds 4.99 from Superdrug.
Body Shop's White Musk is an old favourite.
This Moments set contains Smooth Satin body lotion, Sumptuous Silk shower gel and Lily sponge. Boxed and easy to wrap, it's a snip at pounds 4.80.
The So Mini set contains original So scent, So Sinful and So Kiss body sprays. And at just pounds 3.99 if nobody wants it...so what! Available from Superdrug.
For a festive fragrance there's nothing like cranberry, especially in a vodka. Boots Cranberry Mini Treats contains body wash, body butter and mitt. It's pounds 5 and comes under Boots three-for-two gift offer.
Marks & Spencer's Fruity Beauty Juicy Jewels are brightly coloured stars that melt in the bath.
Scatter them in with PJs or lingerie to dress up a gift. pounds 5 from M&S.
The tropical-scented Serenity Travel Kit from Tesco's Body Therapy collection has mini shower gel, shower scrub and body lotion - all for a bargain pounds 5.49.
My bargain buy award goes to Ted Baker's Master'Ize Palette - real value for money. It contains four eyeshadows, a liner, mascara and applicator brush.
All for just pounds 9 from Boots.
Elle Macpherson's My Little
Gift Bag is a limited edition from the supermodel herself.
It contains Start the Day bodywash, Fresh and Smooth scrub, Ultra Moisture body butter and exfoliating mitt. pounds 8 from Boots.
BUTTER THEM UP
You'll need an extra couple of quid for this but it's worth it. The Skin Quenching Set from The Sanctuary has five fab 50ml body butters and softening souffles.
You could even split it into five stocking fillers. pounds 12 from Boots.
