We never had proper Christmas stockings when I was growing up. Instead of having a stocking on the fireplace, we'd come down on Christmas morning to find pillowcases laid out full to the brim with presents. It might not be as pretty and traditional as a beautiful Christmas stocking, but it's one of my fondest memories of Christmas as a child; a full pillowcase. Stocking fillers are a great way to share the festive spirit and joy without breaking the bank - and they don't necessarily have to go in a Christmas stocking! Here's my top pick of budget-friendly stocking fillers and Christmas gifts.
