The 1£ Gift Challenge

This is seriously the hardest thing I had to do for a post, but I love a good challenge. I won`t lie, finding cute stocking fillers for 1£ was not easy at all and the most frustrating part was that I saw so many wonderful things at 2-3£. Why didn`t I set a 5£ gift challenge was a thought that crossed my mind 100 times yesterday when I did the shopping. Still, I think I managed to grab some cute things and hopefully if you are on a budget or you do Secret Santa this will be useful for you. Shall we?

Flutter Bath Fizzer
I think this is my favourite out of all, the packaging is really sweet and feminine and every girl loves a bath fizzer in the colder months. Now, I don`t expect this to be as good as a Lush one, but then again, you never know. You can find this in Superdrug.

Gingerbread Man Bath Bomb
I also got this bath bomb from Poundland and I think it`s so festive, from the packaging to the scent. I mean, look how cute he looks! I know some people find it a bit too much, but actually, gingerbread it`s my favourite Christmas scent. 

Festive Socks
I am obsessed with Christmas and if you saw me right now, you`d think I`m crazy. I`m wearing leggings with snowflakes on them, a Santa jumper and fluffy Rudolph socks while I`m also enjoying a hot chocolate from a Santa mug. My husband luckily shares my enthusiasm and loves tacky Christmas jumpers, so I thought a pair of reindeer socks will fit nicely. They are from Poundland so it`s not the best quality, but still, they make a nice stocking filler.

Chocolate
I always get my sweets from Poundland or 99p stores, they have an amazing selection. They had Cadburry Milk Trays, Toblerones, chocolate Santas, basically everything you need. I bought this one because of the packaging, I find it very cute how to chocolates are already in decorative crackers.

Crackers
While it`s nothing amazing inside, they look very festive and would be perfect for children. My niece always loves unwrapping things, so I think she`ll really like these. Inside you get mini puzzles and other miniatures, from coloring books to activity books, so for a kid this would be lovely.

Sweet Snuggles Lip Balm Trio & Hand Lotion
I went to 3 local Superdrugs and they sold out, but you can still find these online, reduced from 3£ to 1£. Again, really cute packaging and even though they look like they`re more suited for younger girls, I think every beauty lover would like these. Lip Balms and hand cream are a necessity in the colder months, so you can`t go wrong with these.

So these were my stocking fillers ideas, hopefully, you enjoyed my suggestions! Friday I`ll do a gift guide, with everything under 25£ and then on Monday I`ll start Blogmas. As you know, a job in retail means more Christmas hours, but I`m doing my best to reply to your comments and visit your blogs.

  1. All of these are great picks! Especially that gingerbread man bath bomb, hehe. Socks are great too, I love socks so much that I honestly wouldn't mind receiving them as an actual present. And how cute is that packaging of the lip balm and hand lotion?!

  2. I think you did a brilliant job with this post but I can imagine how hard it was to find something lovely within this price range. The value of money isn't the same anymore these days, while 100k is a HUGE sum 10 years ago, it's really not as big in the world today.
