The countdown to Christmas is on, with just over a week ’til the big day! Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? If you’re anything like us, you probably still have a few last minute gifts left to tick off before the 25th arrives.
Whether you’re stuck on what to get your secret Santa or you need an extra something for your best friend, sunglasses make a great gift idea – they’re a hard-to-find combination of style and practicality and you can never have too many pairs of shades. Plus, unlike clothes and shoes, they’re relatively easy to choose for someone else.
However, if designer frames are out of your budget, sunglasses don’t have to break the bank. With shades from just £6, SelectSpecs is the perfect place to pick up some budget stocking fillers for everyone on your list. To help you out with the last of your Christmas shopping, here are six of our favourite pairs of affordable sunglasses, which all come in at under £25.
For the cool guy or girl in your life (or the hipster on your gift list), surprise them with this pair of polarised sunglasses at Christmas. The Univo SP159 sunglasses are sure to meet their approval, featuring thick black browline frames that will add a fantastic retro edge to any outfit while the lenses provide practical eye protection from UV rays – and all of this for just £16.50.
If you know someone who fancies themselves as the next Kendall Jenner or Gigi Hadid, they’ll love to unwrap these celebrity-inspired aviator frames on Christmas Day. Just £21 at SelectSpecs, the Dakota 8115 sunglasses are stylish and sophisticated with brown tinted lenses and gold and blue frames, making them a great gift idea for any trendy lady.
Fashionistas are notoriously hard to buy for, especially when they have a penchant for brands and labels. If you’ve already splashed out on a luxury handbag or a designer shirt, you’re probably looking for some smaller gifts that cost considerably less. Luckily, the Savannah P2395 features designer-style frames that look like they’ve come straight from the catwalk but are a steal at just £14.95. The funky and fashionable frames are finished in a classic brown havana effect for a look they will love.
The SS Collection S9017
If you’re searching for the perfect last minute gift for one of the men in your life, how about these sleek and sporty sunglasses? The SS Collection S9017 glasses are an easy-to-wear style that looks great and will protect their eyes outdoors, making them a great choice if they like to keep fit or explore the great outdoors.
Wayfarer-style sunglasses are a classic and you can never have too many pairs, especially when they’re available in amazing colours like this. The Savannah 8121 is pink bubblegum perfection with bright rubber frames – a must-have for your BFF or your teenage sister. If pink isn’t their thing, the Savannah 8121 comes in a rainbow of colours including red, green, yellow and blue that are just £10 a pair.
Do you need a gift for a vintage vixen or a glamour puss? Ladies who like retro-inspired fashion (or any lady for that matter) will love to find these over-sized sunglasses under the tree on the 25th. From Visage, the VS181 glasses have cat-eye shaped frames and are finished in glossy black for an Audrey Hepburn-esque look that never goes out of style.
So, instead of an old tangerine and a pair of socks, put something in their stocking that will make them smile this Christmas with a pair of stylish sunglasses. Next day delivery is available for UK customers at SelectSpecs, which means you still have time to order before Christmas arrives.
