Save big on Christmas treats with top stocking fillers for less than a fiver

HO-ho . . . woah! I’m no Grinch but my purse is starting to feel the Christmas pinch.

It could be time to rein in the spending, especially as reckons we are set to spend a whopping £24.2billion on gifts.

Here are some great ideas costing under a fiver apiece.

NOW EAR THIS: Got multiple magpies to buy for? Then split a multipack.

I found a three-pack of silver earrings for £12 (RRP £23) at Warren James — so just £4 each if you split them as gifts.

A single pack of silver stud earrings is £4.99, which would be a great gift too.

SAVE: £11 on the multipack

VROOM FOR MANOEUVRE: Get a five-pack of Hot Wheels diecast toy cars for £7 at B&M and split it between five stockings — spending just £1.40 per child.

Home Bargains has loads of toys for under a fiver, including a Hamster Race game, down to £4.99 from £24.99, a £1.99 ten-pack of Crayola Colour Wonder pastel markers and a set of four classic Play-Doh pots for £2.49 (RRP £3.49).

SAVE: £20 on Hamster Race game

HOMING IN: I will be heading to Primark for homeware prezzies. Mini diffusers are just £1 and plenty of candles under £5.

Its £2.50 pink velvet cushion is almost identical to a £12 cushion at Matalan.

SAVE: £9.50 on the cushion

YOU BEAUTY: A 200ml can of Batiste Original dry shampoo is normally £2.99 at Superdrug but you can currently get it for just £1.99.

And don’t forget about Poundland. It currently has selected Models Own make-up, with prices from just a quid.

You can get the HyperGel nail polish for £2, instead of paying £4.70 on Amazon.

SAVE: £2.70 at Poundland
