Sports Direct has been a great shop to kit my children out with sports wear over the last few years but would you have thought of popping in there for your Christmas gifts? With an array of items under £5, it’s well worth checking out whether you are just after a small gift, secret santa or stocking filler item.
I was challenged to pick up a few gifts from there and was actually surprised at the choice available for both adults and children. For me toiletries or socks are always a winner when it comes to stocking fillers or added extras to main presents so I was pleased to pick up some items that would suit my family this year.
The Korres gift set seemed a bargain at £5 and contains two quality products and is perfect for someone I know (just a shame that the box is a bit battered but I will put the contents in a gift bag with tissue paper instead). I’m sure you are well aware that I have a little minion crazy boy at home so what better than a set of Despicable Me mini shower gels. I love these small sizes as he does have a tendency to tip a whole bottle out at a time – oops! Star Wars socks will be a hit with him too so ideal for his stocking (he’s a massive believer in Santa at 7yrs old so lots of little surprise gifts keep him happy!). The Star Wars gift set looks great and I have a couple of people in mind for that one.
Overall I’m really pleased with my Christmas purchases from Sports Direct and shopping online was simple as you can filter gifts into one place. You have the option of delivery at £4.99 or if you click and collect in store you still pay the £4.99 but receive a voucher to spend in store for the same amount valid for 12 months (well worth doing if your store is easily accessible).
Why not check out Sports Direct online and see what goodies you can find this year for Xmas?

H&A are known for their vast array of kids character toiletries and Christmas time is no exception, with their vast array of children’s gift sets available in a number of different ranges.
We received a selection for Miss M and Mister B to enjoy this Christmas time.
For boys I love the Thomas set with sponge, fizzers, crayons and stencils. My two love drawing on the bath so the Thomas stencils should be lots of fun to use and keep them entertained.
Mister B loves pirates, so Jake and the Neverland bath treats will always be a hit with him. The Tub Tints telescope is a fun idea, coloured bath salts that change the colour of the water and once the telecscope shaped bottle is empty, rinse it out for pirate fun in the bath with your own pretend telescope! There’s also fun to be had with the walk the plank set which includes a suction plank for the side of the bath that you can walk your fingers or any little bath characters you have down until they land in the water.
For girls the Juicy Lucy range is really pretty and perfectly aimed at the almost 7 year old Miss M. The cupcake bath fizzers are sure to be a massive hit with Miss M who will adore using one of these in her bath. The fairy wash bag contains lots of goodies such as bath puff, hair bobbles, bubble bath, shimmer lotion and bath confetti – plenty of exciting things for a young girl. The final set with fizzers and a magic flannel is a perfect extra, all children love to watch their flannel grow in the bath, and something that can be used again and again.
I love all these ranges from H&A, the perfect bathtime gifts for children. There are plenty of other character giftsets available such as Frozen, Me to You, Disney Princess and Doc McStuffins, so something to suit everyone. What gift range will you buy for your child this year?

Stocking Fillers is a great website full of all those small items, such as games, toys and fun things that are perfect for filling stockings this Christmas. With a wide range to choose from, the site is easy to navigate as it’s broken down into different price points as well as boys, girls, adults etc. There also is something for everyone making it the one stop shop for stocking fillers.
I chose a selection of items for my children that I don’t think will disappoint. The quality on all the items seems good value for the price and it was easy being able to order a box full of goodies from one place.
There were plenty of branded items to choose from such as Corgi diecast cars and Crazy Soap which is always a hit in the bath! I also picked up some coloured Bath Tint tablets to change the colour of the bath which sound like fun.
My daughter enjoys a game of noughts and crosses on paper and I spotted a little wooden set using hearts and flowers which looked quite sweet, games never disappoint my children so I’m sure we’ll have lots of fun for such a simple item.
For Mister B who’s 4, I think the dinosaur stick will be fun, by turning it over it makes a dinosaur “roar”. The Secret Message Pen will be a hit for Miss M as she loves writing little notes and the fact that we can’t see them will turn it into a fun game for her.
I think the Stocking Fillers website is a great place to pick up all those last minute little bits and pieces that fill us with joy each Christmas morning. Why not take a look yourself?

One thing all children like at Christmas is hanging up their stockings waiting for them to be filled with lots of little treats and delights. I know my two children are already excited about hanging their stocking by the fireplace and it’s the first thing they open on Christmas morning. Tomy’s collectible Gacha range of pocket money toys make the ideal thing to pop in Christmas stockings.
The little sealed packets are fun to open and my children were all excited at the prospect of what was giong to be inside. With brands in the range such as Hello Kitty, Disney, Monsters University, Furby, Transformers there is sure to be something everyone will like.
Our packets contained items from Monster’s university, Disney and Hello Kitty.
Miss M was pleased with her Hello Kitty bracelet and hairbands and wanted me to do her hair straight away. She also put the Disney ring straight on her finger – it has a large design on top that she was keen to show everyone.
Mister B had a Monster’s University monster that came in 5 pieces to build yourself although was a little difficult to assemble. There was also a Monster’s University key chain and a water squirter duck from Disney. Mister B had fun playing with the three figures on the floor and was quite amused by them.
We tried the duck bath squirter that night and it actually works quite well, they had lots of fun squirting each other with it and Mister B named him “super duck” due to the cape on his back.
Overall, these stocking fillers are the sort of little items that children love and carry around with them. For some low priced branded fun, then these are sure to bring a smile to a young child.
Gacha stocking fillers are available from Tesco
