Christmas gift pages fill stockings with affordable treats for Mum and Dad

Parents will spend an average of £112.50 on Christmas presents for each of their children this year, according to Straw Poll results published in The Telegraph newspaper on 4th November 2011. Retail experts used by The Telegraph predicted that families are more likely to carry on spending on children’s presents but will cut back on gifts for each other.

There are, however, a range of helpful options that keep choices simple and modest so parents can too feel the attentions of Father Christmas. In addition to the wealth of gift options for children, including their favourite Lego figures, collectable ranges of Sylvanian Families and traditional, cuddly Hamleys Toffee Bears, House of Fraser caters for grown-ups too. Gifts for Him at House of Fraser offers bright and informative pages that are organised to offer a range of presents for a variety of men.  

The gifts are selected from the most stylish and on-trend accessories, knitwear and gadgets, none of which need stretch the purse strings. Customers can browse from vintage-looking Roberts Radios, priced at £159.99, to Howick Cable and Leather Gloves, reduced from £30.00 to £18.00. For smaller stocking fillers there are the traditional, gentleman-chic handkerchiefs from New and Lingwood, a Christmas-friendly £16.00 and a cute, statement gift to give a guy.

Likewise, ladies don’t have to go unnoticed this year. Men are given a helping hand with equally detailed and thorough pages, bursting with products dedicated to inspiring Christmas Gifts for Her. The portfolio is extensive and eclectic and caters for budgets big and small. Biba’s black Violet Boots are a stunning idea for a gift at £220.00; however for a smaller and sweeter gesture, their trio set of nail polish is £21.00 and offers small-scale luxury. To plump up any Christmas gift, the Label Lab Snoods are a fashion favourite in on-trend patterned prints. The chunky twisted patterned snood has been reduced from £30.00 to £18.00.

With just two weekends of Christmas shopping left before the big day, the gift giving does not need to end frugally at children’s presents. Gestures for Him and Her are not only budget-friendly, but are also plentiful in innovation and ideas. In the countdown to Christmas, the House of Fraser team has racked their brains on your behalf and come up with the goods.
