If the thought of braving the shops this Christmas is making you feel anxious then why not try some online shopping. If you want somewhere which has a vacuum bot, slippers and a drunk animal colouring book then you need to virtually run to Amazon. What better way to spend a friday night than pouring a glass of wine (or whatever your tipple is) getting your comfiest pjs on and grabbing your laptop for a spot of virtual shopping. However finding things on Amazon at the best of times can be difficult as there are a million different options for one item. Don’t panic though, I have done the hard work for you and compiled 6  of the best and most affordable Christmas presents you need to get for your loved ones.

Sherpa and Fleece Throw Blanket

Pyjamas or blankets are the ideal present for anyone as I don't think there is such a thing as too many of either. This Sherpa and Fleece blanket is as dreamy as it sounds, one side is a plush fleece and the other is a soft sherpa material when combined together it makes for a cosy night in. The size is 50X60 inches making it big enough for two so why not get this for your significant other, just hope that they share it with you as well. 

Plush Slipper Socks 

Socks are a classic gift at Christmas and whilst they may be an everyday item they are still an exciting gift especially when they are brightly coloured and extra fluffy. The best part about this range of fuzzy socks is that there are many designs to choose from my favourite being the coloured heart collection. They come in packs of 5 so that is almost a pair for every day of the week you might have to double up to be safe. 

Bamboo Bath Tray 

If you have looked at any homes through instagram i guarantee they will have a bath tray in their bathroom. They are perfect for anyone you think deserves a long relax and some time to themselves. The bath tray has a stand for any tablets and laptops, so they can watch netflix whilst having a soak. There is also room for a drink and well anything else, snacks, a book or a candle that is up to them. The best part is that it still looks stylish  when it is not in use, adding a plant or some candles gives a chic look. 

Clear Acrylic Bookends

For the avid reader in your life, or someone who really needs to organise the mountain of books they own. Why not treat them to some bookends? They may seem a boring present but I guarantee you they will get the most use out of this product and it will bring them joy seeing the books they've read (or are going to read) on display. As they are a clear plastic it will not interfere with any decor they have and will only showcase the books, perfect for the minimalist.

Sweaty Betty Power Resistance Bands 5 Pack

Resistance bands have been on the rise this year as the focus on growing glutes and legs has had an influx. For the active person in your life this is the perfect gift, Sweaty Betty has a 5 pack of bands ranging from light to extra heavy resistance. So whether they love a HIT workout or just want to change up their routine this pack  of bands will help them achieve their goal. The best part is they are extremely affordable at less than £10 and you get 5 different bands!

If you are looking for a random stocking filler or just want to give someone a laugh then the drinking animal colouring book may be just what you need.

So for those who you think may need to broaden their cocktail making skills this is the present for them, if you are lucky enough they may invite you over for a cocktail night.
