Sometimes, people just need a little pick-me-up. Whether it’s an item of clothing or some homeware or decor, an inexpensive gift can mean an awful lot to someone. Maybe you know someone who’s been going through a rough time or maybe you’d like to show someone just how proud of them you are.
Everything you see here is under £25, a perfect budget for a smaller gift. Showing someone just how much you care doesn’t have to be expensive at all. Here’s a guide to 20 thinking of you gifts, where you’ll find a gift for just about anyone in your life.
Arguably, we think this is one of the best gifts you can ever receive, especially if you live in the countryside and are a bit of a homebody. A new pair of slippers signifies cosiness and care, which is perfect for gift-giving! These slippers are so cosy that if we could wear them at Rydale HQ, we would!
Our suede slippers feature a sturdy rubber sole and a thick faux fur lining so you know they will be long-lasting and keep your toes toasty! They feel luxurious too, making them such a thoughtful but inexpensive gift for a special lady in your life. These slippers are perfect for partners, older children, grandparents, extended family, work colleagues, and friends!
If a pair of slippers weren’t cosy enough, a pair of 100% cotton pyjamas has the ultimate comfort level. They’re so comfortable for lazy mornings in bed and lounging around the house in the evening. The long-sleeved button-up top and elasticated waist trousers have been designed for cosiness.
Because they’re made from cotton, they’re lightweight and breathable, ideal for bedtime. With checks, dogs and pheasant prints to choose from, there are six different patterns and colourways to surprise someone with. These pyjamas even have side pockets in the trousers, which makes them a firm favourite with every woman!
When the weather gets colder but the lady in your life still wants to look stylish, she might love a fleece headband as a gift. It keeps your ears warm, controls your hair, and can be worn with your hair up or down. No more hat hair for that special woman in your life!
It has a Velcro fastening so it’s easy to put on and take off. The moleskin trim and bright fleece colours give it that luxurious edge. Hats often feel restrictive even when it’s bitterly cold outside but a fleece headband definitely helps to retain the heat.
If you know they’ll prefer a hat instead, our most popular style is the beanie pom-pom hat. The Bella hat comes in twelve colours and the cosy wool blend is super soft and comfortable enough to wear all day long.
Most feature a contrasting colour of pom-pom to stand out even more. They’re a great accessory for those who don’t want to sacrifice warmth for style! The thick cable knit wool blend has been designed to retain heat without making you overheat.
Gifting someone a new purse (as long as you put some money inside it) is considered very lucky! It’s also an item that most women won’t buy for themselves until their old one is completely falling apart. It seems like a luxury when we could spend our money on just about anything else for ourselves.
The Helmsley purse is small and compact but not short on features. It has a zipped coin section as well as multiple card holder slots. The two-tone leather details add to the high quality of this purse. It’s the perfect mixture between style and practicality.
For the woman who travels a lot or just simply likes to have an organised handbag, a tweed make-up pouch helps to keep all those little items together. Even if they’re not into make-up, it’s a lovely bag to keep any medication or handbag essentials in one place, rather than just rattling around their handbag.
It’s a high-quality product made from a wool tweed blend, just like all of our other tweed products. The Helmsley pouch comes in two colours, olive and navy, so pick their favourite colour to complement their handbags.
For the countryside lady who loves the great outdoors, hiking socks do make a lovely gift! Nobody enjoys going sock shopping so receiving them as a gift as an adult means it’s one less item you have to buy for yourself.
These specialised hiking socks have an extra cushioned sole, optimum stretchiness, and thermal properties, making them perfect for all weather. At just £7.99 for 2 pairs, these socks are great value stocking fillers.
A lovely family or homeware gift is a brand new mug set. Inspired by country living, the Wistow mug set features patterns of pheasants, horses, dogs, ducks, or hares, depending on which set you opt for. The subtle colours of neutrals and various shades of blue should suit just about any kitchen decor!
Who doesn’t want to get even more comfortable on the sofa? Our range of tweed patterned cushions is perfect to make any house a home. Coming in 11 different tweed patterns, these charming cushions can be spread throughout the house for that ultimate country chic look! It’s the same tweed used in our clothing so you know it’s of the highest quality and is incredibly durable too!
Who would say no to being gifted a gorgeous, soft blanket? Many of us here at Rydale have them in our living rooms, bedrooms and even home offices because who doesn’t want to keep cosy at all times? Coming in olive, cream and khaki, you can select a colour that best compliments their home decor or even clashes with it if they love colour!
Looking for a matching cushion to the Cowlam fleece throw to make a set? Here is the cushion. Whilst they don’t come as a set, the cushion is also available in the same three colours so you can make your own. We’ve even had some customers purchase contrasting cushions to really stand out!
12. Large Umbrella
Another item that you wouldn’t normally think to gift someone but can be a great present for countryside folk is a large golf umbrella! It’s the perfect gift for those who are always attending outdoor events, such as country shows or horse racing, or even just spend a lot of time exploring with the family.
Another cushion from our homeware range is the standard Cowlam cushion without the pattern. It also comes in three extra colours (dark grey, navy and pink) so you have more options here. The teddy bear fleece is some of the softest material we’ve ever felt too so you know you’ll be getting maximum snug levels from it!
Men deserve to have cosy feet too! Slippers are not just for women and children anymore and we’re big fans of our Skipsea suede slippers. The fleecy lining keeps your toes toasty and the slip-on mule style makes them easy to slip on your feet after a long day of work. Seriously, leave them by the front door and pop them on as soon as you get in. It’s like an instant warm hug for your feet!
They have a strong and sturdy rubber sole, making them durable and practical too. Available in chocolate brown and navy, we’ve gone with neutral, darker shades to make them feel even more cosy. Trust us, you won’t want to wear anything else on your feet ever again after you’ve had some of these slippers on your feet.
You lose heat through your head the most when it’s cold outside so why not gift the special man in your life a knitted beanie hat? The Ollie hat has a lovely cable knit, wool blend material, meaning it retains the heat but still remains breathable.
If the man in your life spends a lot of time outdoors, such as long countryside walks or family time, a beanie hat will be such a thoughtful gift. The turned-up collar makes it super stylish but it can be worn down if they prefer a little more coverage.
If they prefer something a bit more modern that can be worn all year long, a wax baseball cap is a great alternative. It’s such a classic and simple design that we’ve included in our collections for years.
It features an adjustable Velcro strap at the back so it fits any man and is available in three shades. At just £13.99, it’s great value for money as it’s a classic Rydale fit.
For the traditional country men in your life, a classic Danby Harris tweed flat cap will be right up their street. Of course, it’s one of our most popular items but it’s a must-have for any country gentleman to have in their wardrobe. In fact, some of our customers even collect various tweeds and colourways!
Made from 100% pure new wool, you know that these tweed flat caps have been designed and made for durability but we love to add a little style to them with new patterns and colourful threads.
It wouldn’t be a gift guide for men without a brand new tie. Even if ties seem to be going out of fashion, a country gentleman should always have one in their wardrobe. They’ll look great against a checked shirt and a tweed jacket.
The pheasant pattern on this tie is such a stand-out design and really pops against the olive or claret-coloured tie. It’s such a classic style that this type of tie will see you through many occasions over the years.
If you’re really stuck for gifting ideas, a socks gift box is an underrated but always appreciated gift. Our bamboo blend socks are perfect for both everyday life and special occasions, especially with the bright colours and classic countryside patterns!
They even come in their own Rydale branded gift box so no need to even wrap them if you don’t want to!
For the man in your life who loves walking, a new set of hiking socks will be such a lovely gift. Choose from five different colours to make their day! These socks are made from a thick wool blend so you know they’re both practical but warming too. However, they’re also breathable and have been designed for walking long distances.
And that’s a wrap on our 20 thinking of you gifts article. We hope you’ve found the perfect item for someone special in your life, whether it’s a relative, friend, or colleague.
