AD – This post contains gifted products but all thoughts are my own
As I’m writing this, London and Essex has just been placed on a Tier 2 warning. We’re no longer allowed to meet friends or family from other households inside. I’m definitely not the only one who feels like everything is going backwards. Or who’s wondering how Christmas might look this year. Christmas is such a magical time for so many people, pandemic or not, it’s important that we do our best to make the most of it, even if we have Christmas on a budget.
This bloody pandemic has kicked up a lot of problems; from health, to losing loved ones, to economic, to redundancy and more. It really did rock up, all guns blazing. But I think the most common problem it’s caused is financial. With so many people losing their jobs or being put on furlough throughout the year.

And with Christmas coming up, this is understandably a worry. Because let’s not beat around the bush. Christmas costs a LOT. Whether you intend it to or not, the price of Christmas always tend to creep up and up until you wonder where your money has gone. So it’s important to think about how we can do Christmas on a budget.
Who are Cherryz?
Which is where this collaboration comes in perfectly. Cherryz is an online retailer who believe that nice things don’t have to cost a fortune. They sell everything from food and drink, toys and games, kitchen and cleaning, health and beauty and much more. With their items costing anything from £1-£10, Cherryz is a perfect option for those who want to save money this Christmas with products of their own design, trusted brands and cherry-picked goodies from around the world.
Fancy a discount?
Before we look at what’s in my box, Cherryz have kindly offered my followers 20% their first time purchase using the Cherryz app! CLICK HERE to download the app and use code JENNY20 at the checkout to get 20% off your first app purchase!
What’s in my box?
For this collaboration, I was kindly offered a £50 voucher to spend at Cherryz. And because this is a post about Christmas, I stuck to their dedicated range of Christmas products, to see what was on offer and what I could get for £50. They have a huge range of Christmas products and it’s only October. And they add new products ALL the time!
From treats to essentials, I tried to cover everything when picking out the bits for my box. I used the Cherryz app, which is dead easy and simple to use – which you’ll soon find out when you use my discount code! But let’s get onto what I managed to pick up for Christmas:
Elizabeth Shaw Milk Chocolate Mint Crisp – £3 // Milky Bar Buttons Giant Tube – £1 // Peppermint Candy Canes 10pck – £1 // Guylian Belgian Chocolate Sea Horses – £2
I probably could have quite easily spent the entire £50 on chocolate and sweet treats but I managed to narrow it down to these! Candy canes because who the heck doesn’t love candy canes at Christmas? I chose the Elizabeth Shaw chocolates for my Mum and the buttons and Guylian Sea Horses for my boyfriend (which he’s already eaten – whoops).
Band Nutcracker Soldier – £3 // Christmas Glitter Window Stickers – £1 // LED String Lights – £3 // Luxury Christmas Crackers 10pck – £4 // Glitter Christmas Ribbon Silver – £1
They have a great range of decorations on the app so I picked out a few which always come in handy. Fairy-lights and cute little snowflake stickers for my window. I also picked up some crackers because they’re a must for your Christmas dinner. I found this little Nutcracker Soldier which I thought was so cute so had to add him to my basket as well.
Baylis & Harding Skin Spa Bath Fizzers Gift Set – £6 // Rudolph’s Substitute Christmas Dog Jumper – £4 // Ladies Novelty Socks – £1 // Yankee Candle Home Inspiration Votive Gift Set – £4 // Women’s Christmas Slipper Socks – £5 // Bakers Allsorts Dog Treats – £1 // Dog Raincoat White – £4
The selection of gifts really impressed me. So I definitely made the most of that and picked up a couple of things which would make great stocking fillers. And in fact, since placing my own order, there’s been a TON of new gifts added to the app so I would highly recommend checking them out right now!
I picked up the slipper socks and the slippers for me and Mum, as well as the Yankee Candles. She loves her Yankee Candles. I also found a couple of bits for the dog including some treats he loves and a cute little Christmas jumper!
So that’s everything I received in my box! I can’t believe how much I managed to pick up but considering most items were under £5 – which many of them being just £1 or £2 – it’s no surprise that I managed to get so much! In fact, going through the box once it arrived, I’d actually forgotten how much I managed to get!
Cherryz is the perfect app to go to for Christmas essentials. For your products like chocolate treats (because no Christmas is complete without a ton of chocolate), decorations and gift bags, you really can’t go wrong with Cherryz if you’re working on a budget this Christmas.
Great post! Wonderful gift ideas and amazing photos!
Wow! You got a lot of wonderful things for that gift card! Can’t believe it! I love all your choices 😍 Thanks for the ideas! I defo need to check them out x
Thank you 🙂 x
I absolutely love ordering from Cherryz and have got so many bargains, many of which I have put aside for Christmas. You’ve picked some great items.
Thank you! They’re such a great company!
This is such a great post! We are definitely doing more of Christmas on a budget this year too so I will have to check this out
Hope you find some stuff on their site!
I love getting stuff from there. They have so many great gifts and also loads of cleaning stuff xx
Great gift ideas, I’m definitely having to spend less this year x
I love that you can get so many different things in one spot, all on a budget. That’s the perfect solution for the holidays! Who says that you have to spend a lot? It’s not about the price tag – right?
It’s absolutely not!
Thanks for sharing, these all look great gift ideas for this coming season 🙂
Thank you x
Those are surprisingly good prices! I am impressed, because as you say, Christmas is usually so expensive. These gifts are great because people who have lost income due to the pandemic, can still buy gifts for their loved ones.
Absolutely! Such amazing value x
Wow! I had never heard of Cherryz before but I am impressed at how much you got with your £50 voucher. I am away to check them out now.
Amazing value for so many essentials!
Who doesn’t love chocolate and socks at Christmas?! I always think if you have a nice dinner and twinkling lights, everything else is a bonus, There’s too much pressure to have the Insta-perfect Christmas! x
Insta-perfect Christmases can do one!
Oh my gosh so many things! You can create an entire Advent Calendar! I especially love the Christmas crackers!
You absolutely could!
Oh wow, you got so much for your £50!! What great value! I’ll definitely be taking a look myself. Thanks for sharing.
You really can!
I think these are lovely choices for Christmas on a budget, especially for people who perhaps have a little less to spend this year. Lovely post Jenny, thanks for sharing x
Absolutely! Thank you 🙂
Great post! What a wonderful place to buy gifts from! I’m in Canada so I can’t take part.
Ah that’s a shame!
I might have to check this out! I have started shopping and decided I wanted to do minimalist gifts this year, meaning I want to give things people can use instead of another sweater or knick knack. I’ll have to see what’s on offer here. Thanks for sharing!
I think that’s a smart idea! We so often end up with so much stuff we don’t need.
I’ve never heard of Cherryz but it seems fab! Look your pics! Reading this made me feel all festive:)xx
Thank you! I’m so glad haha! xxx
I really like the sound of Cherryz, the fact you can pick up so many things for so little money is amazing, a great way to have a budget Christmas! x

It’s definitely a great option for those on a budget!
This looks like an amazing and unique gift idea. Great prices too!
Oh nice, definitely the sweet treats please 😉❤️
They have so many sweet treats!
I’m an absolute sucker for affordable gifting, so I am literally browsing the Cherryz site as I type. Guylian Chocolates are the best, so I’m not surprised you chose to spend your voucher on getting your hands on a box!
Haha right! I’ll admit though, my boyfriend ate like, all of them as soon as this photo was taken!
Ooh I had no idea how many different things Cherryz do! I love that you can get so much in one go, that’s so useful for Christmas shopping and being able to get everyones presents sorted at the same time! xx

It’s so handy for that purpose!
I am really impressed with how much you managed to get with £50, those candy canes wouldnt last long with my hubby!
Haha right! My boyfriend ate basically all the chocolate xD
I really need to start Christmas shopping, I’ve only done a few bits for Joshua so far xx
You’ve still got time! xx
Wow you really did get a lot for that gift card! I love that those cookies are seahorse shipped, and that little toy soldier/nutcracker is just too adorable! 😍 Thanks for the ideas!
You can get really cute little nutcracker decs on here!
Wow I’ve already started looking at their bits before even getting to the end of your post. I am really struggling for stocking fillers, I have great ideas but then can’t find anything when I look online!
I am loving your Christmas content!
I love a stocking filler! And thank youuu xxx
I had downloaded the app before even reaching the comment box! I really need stocking fillers for the kids and not being able to get out to the shops, I can see this being very helpful but also I may not get much work done today!
Thanks for sharing Jenny x x
Haha so happy to hear that! Glad you found this helpful 🙂
Oh wow, I’ll definitely be checking this out. It sounds like they’ve got a spectacular range and if I can do most of the shopping in one go, even better! Never heard of them before – thanks for the recommendation!
They have a fab range of products. Probably even more now, the closer we’re getting to Christmas!
