LAST MINUTE SECRET SANTA IDEAS (£5 AND UNDER!)

Secret Santa ideas five pounds
Honestly one of my favourite things about Christmas is buying and giving gifts, but on a tight budget I'm just no good. I always worry I haven't got enough/spent enough and end up going overboard. Anyone else? Luckily I don't have the dreaded task of buying for work colleagues or friendship groups, or any Secret Santa arrangements with £5 or £10 budgets. But, if you have been summoned to take part in a Secret Santa, I've got your back. I've picked up a great selection of gift ideas from B&M Bargains Stores, and I'm pretty sure everything I got was under five pounds. Sorted. These are things I would personally absolutely love to receive as a Secret Santa gift or stocking filler - it's very heavily food/sweet based because lets be honest, who doesn't want that at Christmas time?

Of course if you're buying for someone 18 and over, you cannot go wrong with alcohol. It's such an easy and typical gift but everyone appreciates getting some booze, right? B&M had a huge selection, from ciders to spirits. I opted first for Smirnoff Ice because everyone likes it because it literally tastes like lemonade, B&M currently have bottles for 89p each! So y'know, you could get someone a generous amount. I then spotted a newbie from Smirnoff, a cider but with Mandarin and Pink Grapefruit, (so that's more like a fruity cocktail right?) Again, it was a generously sized bottle and only two pound

If you've got the task of buying for someone that doesn't drink alcohol and lives on coffee (like me,) and you know they have a hot drinks machine at home, I think it would be really thoughtful to top them up with some pods. Honestly I hate buying these types of things for myself, so I always look forward to occasions like Christmas because I know everyone buys me some pods of my favourite drinks. Again, B&M had a great selection of Tassimo T-Discs, from Cadbury Hot Chocolate to Costa Vanilla and Caramel Lattes. 

I was extremely excited when I spotted some American goodies in my local B&M Superstore. Especially when I saw Hershey's Cookies & Cream Kisses, my God I think my heart stopped a little. These are hands down my favourite American candy treat - receiving American candy is so much more exciting than just your average bag of Maltesers. Especially for chocoholics like myself. Things like this are pretty hard to get a hold of, and again this super size bag was only £2. If they're not a chocolate kinda person and prefer something more savoury, but still exciting because it's from America, they also sell boxes of Twinkies! If you've never tried a Twinkie you have never lived, you will be blessing anyones taste buds if you buy them a box of these beauties. I was actually kind of mad when I saw these in B&M for such a cheap price because I recently paid almost double on Amazon! I really didn't expect to see them in the store. (Also, if you know someone who loves Lucky Charms which cost about £5 a box in the UK, B&M have portion sized pots for £1!) They're adorable, fun and mega tasty - I highly recommend.

Ok so guys have you seen what's been released this year for Christmas? You're gonna die. You know how every year we all pick out the best sweets from tins? Well, you know the mini Malteser chocolates in Celebrations? This year you can buy a box full of just those Malteser 'Teasers.' Again, these were a steal at only £2 which is amazing because you just get a box full of the best ones instead of nit picking from the family tins. (Guilty.

Honestly B&M Bargains Stores have some absolute gems for secret Santa, stocking fillers, or even just little gifts for your friends. Everything is so affordable so with a £10 budget you could literally make a hamper full of yummy treats and something stronger to wash it down. In total I spent twenty pounds and bagged all of these goodies. I know I would love to receive things like this, because it's all stuff you just wouldn't want to buy for yourself, but you still really want them, y'know? And remember, calories don't count at Christmas!
