This weekend marks a 100-day countdown until Christmas – and Boots is already helping shoppers to get ahead of the game on the present-buying front with a huge range of beauty gifts and special offers.
Shoppers can browse thousands of skincare, makeup and fragrance gift sets in the high street retailer’s Christmas range, with price reductions and bundle deals meaning that plenty of bestselling brands can currently be bought for less. While it’s tempting to go all-out on luxury collections this year, many of us are looking to cut back amid the rising cost of living – and luckily there are plenty of gift options at Boots that only cost a few pounds each.
Here are some of the bestsellers that won’t set you back more than £10 from favourites including No7, Soap & Glory, Ted Baker, Dove and more. All of the products listed below are also included in Boots’ current 3-for-2 offer on Christmas gifts – meaning you can mix and match to get the cheapest free.
Baylis & Harding
Baylis & Harding appears to be the most popular brand when it comes to festive gift-giving for beauty lovers on a budget. In fact, the top eight bestselling Christmas gifts for £10 or less on the Boots website are all Baylis & Harding products.
Remember, Boots are currently offering 3-for-2 on selected festive gifts, so you can combine three Baylis & Harding items from the list below to get the cheapest one free. Here are the top choices among shoppers:
Another budget-friendly favourite is Ted Baker, who offer a wide range of pampering bath and beauty gift sets at Boots with plenty offering change from a tenner. The current bestseller from the brand is the Bath & Body Duo for £9, which includes a pink pepper, tobacco and cedarwood body spray and body wash – shoppers can also choose from Sterling Blue or Vintage Amber mini duos for a cheaper £7.
Ted Baker’s Hand Cream & Nail File Set has also proven popular with Boots customers so far, with a price tag of £8.50 for a raspberry and orange blossom hand cream and a matching floral glass nail file. Thirdly, there’s the Mini Lip Liner & Lipstick Duo for makeup lovers – also priced at £8.50, you can get either this or the hand cream set for free if you buy both of these along with the Bath & Body Duo from Boots.
Always a popular choice among Boots shoppers, bestselling brand No7 has dozens of gift sets suited for any budget including several options for £10 or less. One of the cheapest is the Men Mini Energising Trio, which will set you back £7.50, and comes with face wash, moisturiser, and body wash from the No7 Energising range.

And for the ladies, there’s the Limited Edition Lip Duo with a lipstick and lip liner in the shimmery limited edition Starry Nights shade, presented in a beautiful gift box for £10.
The No7 website is also running a range of discounts in its Outlet, which could prove a perfect opportunity for shoppers to stock up on Christmas gifts that would usually cost a lot more. Lipsticks, concealers foundations and lip gloss are currently among the items that have seen their prices reduced by up to 50%.
Soap & Glory
Soap & Glory are on the Christmas lists of many beauty lovers each year, and it looks like there will be no exception this festive season.

And thirdly, the Soap & Glory £10 Berry & Bright Minis have proven popular so far, with three limited edition mini bath and shower essentials inside as well as a face mask – remember, if you get all three of these gift sets, you’ll save £10 in Boots’ 3-for-2 offer.
Makeup lovers can snap up some Revolution goodies for a few pounds in the Boots Christmas section, including the Mini Contour & Glow Gift Set for £5. This dinky set includes a contour palette and a setting spray in a pink gift box, ideal as a little stocking filler for fans of the brand.

For mega Revolution fans who can afford to spend a bit more, fellow high street retailer Superdrug has just released its 2023 Revolution Advent Calendar, containing 24 makeup gifts for £40. As well as a treat for yourself, advent calendars can be ideal for saving some cash when it comes to your Christmas shopping if you choose to re-distribute the contents as mini gifts.
