Sports Direct £5 Christmas Challenge



Being a mum of four I'm always trying to keep the cost down at Christmas, otherwise I would need to rob a bank come January so when BritMums challenged me to the #sdfiverchallenge I was more than up for it.

I don't usually shop in Sports Direct for anything other than the boys trainers and never have I used them online.
So I was pretty interested to see what they had on offer for under £5.


I was blown away with the range of Christmas gifts they had and how reasonable the prices were.
I was given a £30 voucher to spend and I had to get at least two gifts for under £5.
Well I managed to do better than that!
Most of my gifts featured were £5 and below!

All the presents featured are suitable to stocking fillers / tree presents*
*tree presents are little gifts that the whole family can play - mainly board games.

First up Ru-Bear.
I spotted these for Ru whilst browsing and knew he'd love them.
The Cars pop up game (£4.99) will be great for all four boys to play on Christmas Day and it is a take on one of my favourite games frustration.
Ru also loves drawing but does make an awful mess with pens so this Paw Patrol magnetic scribbler (£2.10) will be perfect for him.


Next on my list was Noah!
He is becoming tricky to please and is rather fussy about what he asks for now so I wasn't sure what id be buying to fill his stocking up with but whilst browsing the under £5 gift section I came across the following.
Star Wars glow in the dark stickers (£4.75) Noah loves Star Wars and like collecting cool stickers, so I thought these would be perfect for his expanding collection.
He's takes after his daddy and is a big West Ham fan so when I saw this little West Ham beanie (£4.50) I knew he would love it. 
He may be 10 in a few weeks but he still loves a teddy!
And because he is growing up and likes to spend a long time dancing around in the shower this Batman bath set would be suitable for him.
Smellies at Christmas is pretty much a must have!


Last but not least I came across Monkey Tree and I remember playing this as a kid and thought it would be a great tree present, something we can all play whilst waiting for Christmas Lunch.
Family games are always a great way to get everyone cheering and laughing and focusing on each other than rather whats on the telly!


I spent just under £30 and that was with £4.99 standard shipping.
Standard shipping aims to get your delivery with you in 5-6 days.
My delivery took around 3 days to arrive.

I was really impressed with the quality of the gifts and the prices were just amazing.
Really great at helping keeping the cost of Christmas down.

The products seem to change quite a bit, as there is more items up than when I was looking and there really is something for everyone!
I can see myself topping up the boys stockings and grabbing a few bargains for others too.

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Intuition razors are the first 3-in-1 razors to lather, shave and moisturise in one easy step, giving your skin that naturally healthy glow. Simple and convenient, it's the perfect razor for busy women and mums on the go. Save time and money on s…

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
