Low-Cost Christmas Gift Guide PART 5

If you haven't read part 1 - 4 you can do so here.

14. Useful info about: Jokari
'Over the past 30 years Jokari has developed a proven line of products for the home. Since 1974 Jokari has taken great pride in being a leader in the design of innovative products to consumers around the world. And we have always had one goal in mind…providing practical and simple household solutions that ultimately make life easier'!
'We are constantly experimenting with new and different products to meet the changing needs of the marketplace. This year alone we have introduced several exciting products that we think you will find useful, from organizing your kitchen and bath to making food prep easier'.
'Jokari products are sold in over 20 countries around the world and though you may not be familiar with the Jokari name, you are most likely familiar with the product'.
I was given the opportunity to review one of Jokari's hand bag racks. What girl would say no?
When I took it out of the package I was quiet weary to whether it would be strong enough to hold more than 3 handbags because it looked like it would snap very easy.
It didn't take me long to put the rack to the test. I hung it over my bedroom door and simply placed 11 handbags onto it, I was very shocked to see it still hung there and not snapped on the floor. 
It has been 8 days now since I first put it up and I am really happy with the outcome, it is very sturdy and a brilliant storage product to free up some space.

Last Christmas hundreds of these product's flew off the shelves, very popular indeed!
The rack fit's over doors and can also be wall mounted (mounting included). 

For a handbag storage pack you would be expected to pay £17.95, the pack contains 2 racks which in total holds upto 16 handbags.

15. Useful info about: Love Thy Make-Up
'At ‘Love thy make up’ we believe in product innovation at the right price '.

When I received an email asking if I would like to review some beauty products, I jumped at the chance because I love to slap on some make-up now & again!
The lovely Cara sent me 3 make up products, all which can be found on
Body Collection Luxe Ultimate Bronzing Beauty Bonanza (£9.99)
This is the must-have beauty kit for anyone that loves to look bronzed and sun-kissed all year round! Boasting a bronzing compact, an eyeshadow compact, a lipgloss compact, bronzing pearls, two double-ended applicators, a bronzing brush and a face applicator, this set is packed full of all the complexion-boosting products a girl could ever need.

Body Collection Luxe Bronzing Beauty Starter Kit (£4.99)
Perfect for anyone that’s new to bronzing this starter kit contains four gorgeous eyeshadows, a bronzing powder, a lipgloss, a bronzing brush, an eyeliner pencil and a double-ended applicator – all the essentials needed for that glowing, sun-kissed look!

Body Collection Luxe Perfectly Polished Nail trio (£2.99)
This set contains polishes in three different bronze hues that will compliment your luminous, golden complexion perfectly. Simply apply a couple of coats of your favourite shade and you’ll be ready to go

Some women may worry about using the bronzing in-case they look a little 'orange' as people say, but you can't go wrong with these gift sets, even Mr. B complimented me on how lovely the make-up looked on me (that's coming from a guy that isn't keen on me wearing make-up, as he says "natural beauty is thee best").

These are perfect stocking fillers and best off all, they don't cost too many pennies!

So go on, what are you waiting for? Pop on over to, you won't be disappointed! 

16. Useful info about: Vertbaudet
'A favourite with parents in France for over 40 years, VERTBAUDET was launched in the UK in 1997'.

Why Mums Love Vertbaudet:
  1. 100% quality and style
  2. 100% great value
  3. 100% ease and security
I received this lovely outfit in the post for Alesha, the fit was spot on! It can be pain sometimes when buying clothes for Alesha because in one shop she could be 12-18months and in another she could be 18-24 months.
With Vertbaudet I ordered size 18-24 months considering Alesha will be 24 months next month, "yes a December baby just like her mamma".
The fit was spot on, the sleeves weren't hanging over her arms like they are with a few 18-24months tops she has from different stores.
The outfit was put to the test in the washing machine and  now it's time for the results... The colours never ran when I washed them and they also remained their normal size and size, no shrinking!

I would definitely recommend Vertbaudet if your on the hunt for a Christmas gift for a baby or a child.
Vertbaudet not only do clothes, they also stock a wide range of toys and quirky accessories.

Why not pop on over to their site for a good nosey about.

17. Useful info about: Ikea
IKEA offers a wide range of well-designed IKEA offers a wide range of well-designed, functional home furnishing products at prices so low that as many people as possible will be able to afford them. This is the idea at the heart of everything IKEA does, from product development and purchases to how we sell our products in IKEA stores globally.
Alesha received a strawberry (hero of the vegetable patch range) and also Bjorn bear.
For the first few minutes Alesha couldn't stop cuddling the strawberry, it was very soft better than some pillows. A few days later and she can't go nowhere without Bjorn bear, the teddy is perfect for little hands to hold.
Gifts ideas for kids

This year IKEA have a great range of soft toys and kid's books available that not only are fun and relatively low cost gifts but also go towards supporting a charity campaign!

IKEA have just launched their Soft Toy Campaign which runs from the 24th October to 23rd December, where for every IKEA soft toy or children's book you buy, the IKEA foundation will donate one euro (no matter the price, it can be 39p!!) to UNICEF and Save the Children to fund education programmes around the world.  The campaign has raised a total of 35.2million euro since 2003!  This year the target is 12million Euros! So, not only are you buying a fantastic soft toy as a christmas present for a loved one, whats more you are helping support a great charity campaign!
This is a really wonderful campaign donating to a very worthy cause and the soft toy range is definitely alternative- with interesting characters including a Broccoli and a Strawberry (heroes of the vegetable patch range at £6.99 each)Bjorn the Bear (this years hero bear at just 99p!) and a Tattooed weight lifting tiger (£3.99) from the Klappar circus range! Another interesting christmas gift idea is the IKEA children's book: The Heroes of the Vegetable Patch by Charlotte Ramel, a story where a girl and a boy make friends with a group of vegetables and help an old lady with a problem, along the way understanding that all of us- plants, animals and insects- share the land: the basis of sustainability! These are great alternative Christmas gift ideas for the kids in the family!!
