Christmas Shopping From My Sofa With Sports Direct

When it comes to Christmas, I am usually pretty organised. I hate going shopping in December with the rest of the world, so try and get organised early. This year, however, I have been really stuck with what to buy. With the boys getting older they want less toys. Infact their lists are really bare.

That is where Sports Direct have stepped in. They have challenged bloggers to a £5 gift challenge. To be honest I have only really thought of Sports Direct as somewhere to go to buy new gym kit, not to do my Christmas shopping. However, where I looked at their Christmas gifts page I was pleasantly surprised. Filled with a vast range of gifts for £5 or less there was loads to choose from. So what did I buy?

Sports Direct Haul

Well this lovely lot only cost £29.74 with postage included. As you can see it is packed full of useful gifts rather than tat that the boys wont use.

I love my boys, but oh my they are forgetful. Everyday they take a water bottle to school with them. Whether they come home with them is another matter. I opted for 2 different water bottles but both with Chelsea branding for my little football fans (less arguing over whose is whose!) Lets hope they remember to bring them home.

My boys still like fidget spinners and with little man’s birthday on the way, I thought he would love this Chelsea one. I am no expert on fidget spinners, but it spins and it has Chelsea on it so what more can a 6 year old want?

Middle man likes to be different and rather than a Chelsea supporter, he supports Arsenal. I decided a boot bag would be great for him when I realised he was stuffing his trainers in his bag along with his homework. I am hoping now that he wont be handing in any muddy literacy work!

This Star Wars shower gel set was a perfect stocking filler at only £2 (Yes I know it has a sticker saying £3.) Everyone wants their little stormtroopers to smell good don’t they? The box wasn’t 100% perfect but as big man will rip it open to take the shower gel out, it isn’t an issue.

Then last but not least a gift for me! I rarely treat myself. But at £4.75 it would have been rude not to get myself a new gym top. What can I say. It is a vest top that makes me look slightly nicer whilst red faced at the gym. Fancy a closer look? Then here is a haul video I made.


I am really impressed with the quality of the gifts I purchased. I often worry about online delivery as I have found that couriers can be hit and miss. There are various delivery options available, and I chose standard at £4.99. The delivery came via Hermes and I received a text on the day it was coming advising me how to track my order. Overall, I was impressed with the range of gifts available for £5 and under and would recommend it for stocking fillers and secret santa gifts as there really is something for everyone.
