Did you grow up with Christmas socks every year? Although not everyone is in the tradition of a Christmas gift box, many families still love to continue the nostalgic exercise of the Christmas culture.
When your child also receives a selection of larger presents during Christmas tree, it can be difficult to budget for even more presents, small enough to fit into a stocking. We have compiled a list of small stockings you can buy for under one teeth (some even under a fiver!). Perfect for socks and also ideal to dive into your child's backpack or boot bag for those times when you are out and need distracting them.
These things will not break the bank, but also have the potential to be as loved as something that cost two or three times the price!
