Christmas is a time for giving, sure, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to spend all your hard earned money on eye-wateringly expensive gifts for friends and family.

The best gifts are often the most thoughtful ones, and after the year we’ve just had, we all want to feel that extra bit loved and cared for.

So, with that in mind, we headed over to one of the retailers that does varied Christmas gifts best – Marks & Spencer – to rifle through the digital shelves.

With a maximum budget of £40, we’ve picked out a range of gifts for family and friends (hands up who thought they’d escaped the office Secret Santa this year but now has to do it via Zoom), that are sure to bring a smile to their face.

From personalised tote bags to foodie gift sets and Christmas games that are sure to delight the whole family, we’ve found something to suit a variety of ages and interests.

Plus, currently if you spend £30 across clothing, home and beauty at M&S you can buy the brand’s highly-anticipated Beauty Edit Box (worth £122) for just £20 - so you can treat yourself as well.

See, there are so many benefits to doing your Christmas shopping early this year.
