This time of year is so so hard on our bank accounts. We want to get our friends and families the perfect gifts, but how can we do that while staying within our budgets? Secret Santa is sometimes a way around this, but it’s often more stressful than regular presents – especially if you’re given a price range or a low maximum spend! Keep reading to find some of those gifts that are perfect and less than £5!Before I go any further though, who’s excited to see what film we’re watching tonight? Well those of you who love the older, more traditional Christmas films should be excited! Why? It’s A Christmas Carol, the 1951 version! So okay its actual name is Scrooge, but it’s Alistair Sim and it’s actually my favourite of all the remakes.
Are you going to watch with me? Please do!

So below are just some of my suggestions that would be a good present for almost anyone – so even if you get the newbie in the office or your worst enemy, you’ll still be able to rest easy knowing you got a decent present!
