CHRISTMAS is the time for giving and we’ve rounded up the best 50 stocking fillers for under £5 to help keep costs down.
The average family spends £719 on their Christmas shopping, with £500 of that blown in December alone, according to the Bank of England.
So we’ve found some cheap presents that don’t cost the Earth to help you cope financially over the festive season.
Whether it’s for your little one, or for your significant other, we’ve got you covered with presents for kids, men and women.
We've scoured the likes of B&M and Wilko, as well as some of the UK's top supermarkets including Tesco and Aldi.
You should still always compare prices to make sure you've found the cheapest price for what you're looking for.
Here's our favourite picks of this year's Christmas gifts under £5.
