It’s so easy to get into a bit of a rut with present buying, so I was interested by the idea of being challenged to find good value gifts for less than a fiver at Sports Direct. I’ve shopped at Sports Direct before, but it’s usually been for a specific sporty need for me and H and it’s usually new swim trunks or trainers or something similar. This time I was looking for good value gifts in the under £5 price range, so for stocking fillers maybe or a Secret Santa or just to top up another gift.
I decided to find a stocking filler for both of us from the Sports Direct range. I did wonder how easy it would be as I wouldn’t say either of us is especially sporty, but I needn’t have worried it all proved to be very easy indeed.
A few months ago H went on a school residential trip and it was suggested they took torches. I thought we had some torches around the place, but when I started looking I couldn’t find any. In the end I had to send him with the torch I keep in the meter cupboard in the porch, which I keep handy just in case we need to read the meter in the dark (there’s no porch light) or deal with the fuse cupboard at night. Of course, when he came back I needed to put it back, so H was still without his own torch. So I found one on the Sports Direct site priced at a bargain £3 for H which looks quite sturdy.
For me I decided to get a yoga prop. Yoga is my main form of exercise aside from walking and I have a number of props which I use at home. The thing is I like to keep some downstairs to do a few poses in front of the TV and some upstairs for when I try a longer session. I usually end up carting stuff up and downstairs, so I wanted a change from that. This yoga block is somewhere between the yoga blocks and bricks that I already have. It means I can use this block for a wider variety of poses and it means I don’t need to store so much equipment, which is a bit of a win. At £2.99 it was well within my budget too.
