Oh and try outlets. We have a boundary mill nearby and bought lovely tops for well under £20 each.

i got a sterling silver bangle from etsy for my mum (uk seller) with a snowflake charm for £16 so its worthwhile to have a wee hunt around on there as well. For DH i bought some geeky tshirts (pacific rim and adventure time themed) from ebay, £11ish each

Try local MacArthur glen outlet...I got a ted baker wash bag for £12, L'occitane toiletries for £7-£20, earrings and a bracelet from links of London each less than £20, scarf and hat from Lakeland £20. Etsy good too...personalised cufflinks with local map images less than £20, funky cards that will double up as pictures with a cheap frame.

Or bottles of spirits are good...supermarkets have loads of offers on!

I've bought Sherlock and Dr who posters/artwork from this etsy shop.

They do loads of different ones. It'd be great for film or tv buffs.
