£1 STOCKING FILLERS FOR THE MEN IN YOUR LIFE!

Yes, it's true, it can be done -I do it every year - buy stocking filler presents from Poundland! There's a sort of an art to buying from Poundland if you don't want to be buying complete tat and these are my tips:
  • Go with a list - most important. Know what you've already bought for the "stockings" so that you don't overspend.
  • Do not go on a Saturday!
  • Try to buy only branded goods if possible, particularly if it's smellies, cosmetics, sweets, etc., Obviously for stationery and "fun" type novelties, it's not so important.
So, what is there to choose from? Well, here's a few of my suggestions:
Deodourant
.
DVDs
Packs of novelty socks: The Simpsons
Trainer socks
After Eight chocolate Santas -mmm, yum!
Packs of boot socks, or thermal socks - probably not the best quality, but you never know!
Black leather trouser belt.
Packs of Kodak, Sony or Panasonic batteries.
4 Gang socket.
De-icer.
Windscreen scraper
WD
40.
Superglue.
Twix
, Mars, Toblerone or Bounty - all 4 for £1.
Nivea
Sensitive for Men shower gel.
Festive Boxer shorts.
24 shot disposable camera with flash.
Mini remote.
USB
mouse.
4 port USB hub.
Earphones.
Packs of blank CDs and DVDs.
You will find, of course, that some of these items will sell out quickly, or will not be available at your local Poundland (or perhaps any other!) but it's a matter of persevering with regular forays!
Happy Frugal gift buying!
