Bargain Stocking Fillers
Christmas morning means one thing in our household – STOCKINGS! Well, that and Champagne so maybe two things then. From a small something special to a raging joke of a present the stocking present is the perfect thing for those little bits that you really don’t want to put under the tree. This is by no means saying that you shouldn’t put these things under the tree but you know when there is a tradition in your house it seems to just carry on and it really is lovely when it does. With a glass of champagne in hand and the snowman film on in the background we chat about everything and anything and open up our presents before we have breakfast. When we buy these presents it a bit like a big secret Santa sack as we keep the gifts to a budget of under £15. With that in mind I have put together a little collection of things that have made it into the sacks in the past and may even continue to make an appearance.
Even though these choices have been used in the morning sacks I have also included some of them in personalised gift sets that I have made for individual people depending on their personal likes. The one thing that I like to remember when I am buying presents is that it is never about the cost of it but if the person will like it and actually find it helpful, useful or just really appreciates it.
