Last minute christmas gift ideas by Mr Lender

Christmas is now less than a week away. The decorations will most likely be up, the Christmas cards sent off in the post, and the turkey order placed. But if you’re running a little behind on your Christmas shopping, Mr Lender (a UK based short term loan provider) has put together a list of ten of the best pre-Christmas bargains for you to snap up, and send on their way.

  1. Perfume

For the man who has everything, that one family member who is always a struggle to buy for, the one person who will not appreciate a good pair of socks – perfume is a guaranteed hit. The Perfume Shop currently have Boss Orange Man on offer for £29.99, down from £57.

  1. Hair Straighteners

A perfect gift for teens who burn their way through straighteners like there’s no tomorrow, or that special lady who likes a glam night on the town. Argos have TRESemme Keratin Smooth Control hair straighteners up for £27.99, down from £44.99.

  1. Electric Shaver

New Year’s resolutions are very rarely fulfilled – they’re almost made to be broken. But if you or a certain man in your life has decided to banish the beard in January, Tesco Direct have the Philips Aquatouch Electric Shaver on sale for £37.99.

  1. Electric Toothbrush

2016 was the year for teeth, with a whole variety of different toothpastes and products making their way onto the market. Philips Sonicare DiamondClean toothbrush is now just over half price in Superdrug at £124.97, down from £250.

  1. Gift Set

Everyone knows that Christmas is the time to fill the toiletry cupboards with shower gels and body creams. This Baylis and Harding Back Pack wash set does that and more, as it comes with a sleek black back pack too – and is only £25, down from £50 in Superdrug.

  1. Soft toy

‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ has just made its appearance on the big screen, so children and Star Wars fans will definitely appreciate a little bit of memorabilia under the tree this year. Debenhams currently have 50% off on this cute Chewbacca soft toy, now sold for £16.50.

  1. Slippers

There isn’t a feeling quite like waking up on Christmas morning to a new pair of slippers – eating your Christmas breakfast with the soft fluff between your toes. Share that feeling this year, as Matalan have these grey mules for just £4.

  1. Chocolate

Christmas is a time for overindulgence, and there is no such thing as too much chocolate to get you through the festive season. Tesco have 240g boxes of Celebrations on offer for just £1.50.

  1. Trampoline

If the John Lewis ad has got the family wanting a trampoline this year, Tesco Direct have a 6ft trampoline with an enclosure included for £50.16, down from £76.

  1. Alcohol

One final fool proof Christmas gift for the person who has everything, is a little Christmas tipple. Head to Sainsbury’s as they have this bottle of champagne on offer for just £14.
