Whether you are looking for cheap stocking fillers as Secret Santa gifts or to put in your child’s stocking, we’ve got something for you. It doesn’t necessarily follow that high quality, handmade items such as those on the Dorothy and Theodore website will be expensive. They don’t have to be! Many of the smaller items on our website make ideal stocking fillers under £5.
A mini stocking for little gifts
Our popular natural cotton mini stocking with robin print is ideal for filling with cute little stocking fillers under £5. In fact, it even costs under £5 itself. The robin image is printed in red and black onto the stocking. The rest of the stocking is blank and easy to personalise yourself. Write children’s names on for them or let them personalise it with a stamp or even some embroidery.
Stocking fillers under £5 straight from the North Pole
Some of our sweetest stocking fillers under £5 could have come directly from Father Christmas himself. These little treats help children to truly believe in the man in red. They might even become family Christmas traditions.
Santa’s lost button
Whilst this is a guide for cheap stocking fillers, some of them are absolutely priceless. Take this lost button for example. Picture the scene when your child goes downstairs on Christmas morning. They may be starting to doubt Santa, but if he’s not real then whose button is that? Not only has Santa lost a button, a piece of his jacket has ripped off with it too! Make Christmas morning even more captivating by hiding the beautifully engraved wooden button somewhere for the children to find. It is sewn onto a square of red fabric for extra authenticity. Santa’s button is a beautifully thoughtful festive accessory that costs just £2.50 plus £1 for delivery. A small price to pay for another year of magic.
North Pole Express Newspaper
Stories about Father Christmas and his team of magical elves fill the eight pages of the North Pole Express newspaper. Short, well structured articles hold the attention of children of reading age. Features include news from the naughty and nice lists, stories about the elves, gift ideas, colouring in, a quiz and even a sports page. What a lovely addition to any Christmas stocking.
If your children are fans of the North Pole Express newspaper, they are going to love these Santa and Eliza buttons. The buttons feature Santa’s chief toymaker Eliza, along with Santa himself. Both are pictured as featured in the North Pole Express newspaper. The buttons measure 38mm and look fabulous on a lapel, sleeve or bag.
Festive gifts under £5
Whilst not all stocking fillers will be festive, you can’t go wrong with a few Christmassy treats. Whether it’s something to hang on your tree or a delicious alternative to a Christmas card, we’ve got a couple of ideas that you’ll love.
Personalised Christmas chocolate
When a Christmas card just won’t cut it, send a personalised Christmas bar of chocolate instead. Let the seller know the name and message you want to appear on the wrapper and choose from one of seven Christmas designs. Postage is free so why not send it directly to your recipient instead of a card? This would also make a lovely gift for a teacher or teaching assistant.
Personalised tree decoration
Wouldn’t it be a lovely tradition for a child to have a tree decoration in their stocking each year? When Santa has been, it’s time to hang the decoration on the tree. Each year, the old decorations will be reused and new ones added. Why not start with this adorable hand painted Rudolph decoration personalised with your child’s name? With moving eyes, cute eyelashes and a red pom pom nose, he is bound to become a firm favourite.
Personalised festive lip balms
Lip balms are always useful in Winter, so they make an ideal stocking filler for under £5. In fact, we think recipients will love these personalised festive lip balms so much that they’ll be asking Santa for one every year.
Christmas themed mini lip balm
A tiny mini pot of lip balm with a cute reindeer character on the lid can be personalised with your recipient’s name. This is an ideal stocking filler, Secret Santa gift or a present for children to give to their friends. Pots are filled with strawberry flavoured lip balm and presented in an organza gift bag tied with ribbon. They are eco friendly, vegetarian and animal friendly with recyclable packaging.
Personalised lip balm sticks for kids
We adore the penguin and reindeer characters on these lip balm sticks. They can be personalised with your choice of name so there’s no excuse for losing them at school! We think you’ll agree that nobody is going to stop using these in January just because they’re festive. Each strawberry flavoured lip balm stick comes in metallic wrapping twisted at the ends and ready to gift. They are cruelty free, vegetarian and free from any nasties.
Other stocking fillers under £5
If you’re looking for a few different stocking fillers under £5, you probably won’t want all of them to be Christmas themed. After all, everyone loves a gift they can use all year round. We are sure your recipient will think of you fondly when they put these to good use, whatever the time of year.
Crochet flower school hairband
Many schools like children to wear accessories in colours that match their school uniform. So why not keep both children and teachers happy with a handmade crochet flower hair band? Choose a colour to match school uniform, or simply one that will brighten up any outfit.
Hand painted mini hugs
For children who miss loved ones while they are at school or elsewhere, these mini hugs are a beautiful way to remind them that you’re thinking of them. What could be better to find in a stocking than hugs from the people you love? Choose between mummy hugs, daddy hugs or tiny hugs on the back. Each hug is hand painted with arms across the front and kiln fired.
