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.
