It's not easy finding quality kids' Christmas stocking fillers under a tenner, which is why we've done the leg work for you and hunted out ten cool and quirky ideas for stocking fillers that will delight the kids on Christmas morning.
1. Snow Shaker, Asos, £5
Dreaming of a white Christmas? Never worry if the white stuff fails to materialise - just pop a festive Snow Shaker in the Christmas stockings and you'll have your very own snow on Christmas morning. (Yeah, best not to think about the cleaning up afterwards.)
2. Top Secret Pen, Matalan, £6 Every kid dreams of being a spy, and this Super Hero Top Secret Spy Pen could make that dream a reality. It's suitable for little ones aged three years and over and requires 3 X 15V Lr41 button cell batteries but they're apparently included. A note pen and pad is included, and once you've scribed your secret message you can make it appear with a wave of your wand.
3. Stocking Fillers Kit, Party Pieces, £4.99
Ooh this is clever - Party Pieces have put together Stocking Filler Kits containing 10 little items for a grand total of just £4.99. There's also a deluxe version for girls at £9.99 and one for boys at the same price.
4. Sliders Carpet Skates, £4.83, Prezzybox
Normally £6.99, these bonkers carpet skates are down to under a fiver just now and I know my lads would love them. Apparently you just strap them to your feet and you'll be speeding around the house in no time!

Shopkins stuff is all the range this Christmas, and this cute Shopkins stationery set is under a fiver - the perfect stocking filler for a Shopkins fan.

9. Minions Soap on a Roap, £2, Superdrug
Let's just say there comes a point where persuading kids to have a bath gets a little tricky but with these fab novelty soaps I reckon my troops will be begging to hit the showers.
10. Giant Haribo tube, £2.99 (2 for £5), B&M Bargains
I always hit B&M Bargains for a few last-minute Christmas stocking fillers, and these giant Haribo tubes are definitely on my shopping list this year. Yumtastic. I love that they're a combo of Starmix and Tangfastics, too. What more could you ask for?!
