So it's this time of year again, and gift buying can be a bit of a chore particularly if you are unsure of the persons interests. With that in mind I have made made a list of some great gift packs on sale now, I tried to find interesting gifts that are reasonably priced (and to keep the number of perfumes and body lotions to a minimum). So in no particular order:
Peter Puffin or Chicken Hand painted with Bonne Maman Preserve Gift Set - £11.27 Costco
This would make a really nice gift, with eight quality jams to taste, and ceramic chicken or puffin which can double up as a storage container after. They sell it on amazon here but it is far cheaper in a Costco Warehouse.

Ted Baker On Course Ted Messenger Bag - £35 Boots
This pack is all Ted Baker, and includes two body sprays, two shower gels, some soap. Although it is a high price, it does include a Ted Baker bag which alone tend to retail for far more than this, so it seems like good value.

Filled Spice Rack - £55 John Lewis
Made out of Glass and Stainless Steel, it feels heavy and well built. It comes with a full jars of Basil, Coriander Seeds, Rosemary, Dried Garlic, Oregano, Marjoram, Onion Salt, Dried Chilli, Cumin, Caraway Seeds and Turmeric. I think this would make a really good gift although a little pricey.

Filippio Berio Traditional Pasta Making set - Costco (will update on price tomorrow)
This pack is simply a gorgeous gift, it contains a Stainless Steel pasta maker, a wooden parmesan grater, 500ml of olive oil, 190g of Pesto and 1Kg of Delverde Farina Flour. I can't find a good picture of this online, so here is the one I took in the Warehouse.

Botany Pamper Collection Birdcage - £5 Tesco

It says it is out of stock on the website, but I just saw it at my local extra.
Umbro Total Body Set £3.99 B&M Stores
Adequate gift at a great price - Although this gift pack may not be the best or the fanciest, it includes deodorant, shower gel and body spray all at a really cheap price for a gift pack.

What a great, funny, unusual, albeit totally useless gift - The picture speaks for itself.
