Mini Gifts

When I was a kid, my stocking used to have little things in it like fruit, nuts, paper and pens, occasionally a book, or some socks and soap. These days stocking fillers all seem rather expensive, with many gift guides listing stocking fillers valued at £10+! I think it’s good to get back to the basics and make a stocking full of fun, useful but ultimately inexpensive things. Kids don’t need all the newest, shiny, branded gadgets at the end of the day! So for “Mini Gifts Made Simple” I’m listing 50 stocking fillers for kids under £1 each!

Good places to shop include: Supermarkets, Poundland, Poundstretcher, TheWorks, B&M Bargain, Home Bargains, Matalan
