Budget Stocking Stuffers – Coffee Lover

coffee lovers gift guide budget stocking filler

Stocking – £5.99 / Coffee Syrups – £4.70 / Star Wars Coffee Mug –  £5.85 / Orange Mocha Instant Coffee – £2.50 / Milk Frother – £1.45 / Amaretti Biscuits – £3.99 / TOTAL – £24.48

I will be doing my regular video gift guides very soon but here on my blog I wanted to do something a little different. I will be reviewing some gift sets over the coming weeks but for those of you totally stuck for ideas and on a strict budget I thought this mini stocking filler guide might be useful. The general idea is that you pick a theme and fill a stocking with appropriate gifts. I’m kicking off with a coffee lovers stocking and have plenty more to come but if you have any specific themes you’d like to see let me know.

First of all the stocking you choose is going to depend on the contents.. you want to make sure it’s all going to fit but worst case scenario they have something wrapped on the outside too.. no biggie. This stocking isn’t the cheapest I’ve found either, I just bought a really nice knitted one from poundland I’d definitely recommend if you can keep your gifts relatively small but there are so many available right now you can shop around.

With these items I had my Dad in mind, he’s a Star Wars fan and loves these Amaretti biscuits as well as a chocolate orange at Christmas so I tried to tailor the stocking to his tastes but you don’t have to follow this exactly , think of the person you’re buying for and try and make it as personalised as possible. Often when you have less money to spend you have to make a little more effort but it’s a nice change from a large generic gift. This shows that you have really thought about the person and I think anyone would appreciate that.

Lastly if you have a lot of people to buy for or want to join up with a friend you can save a lot by buying in bulk. The coffee syrups for example could be split in to several stockings and I saw so many sets of coffee that would be great for the same. Splitting gift sets is a great saver – also I had to find all of these items online but if you scour places like Home Bargains and the various pound shops you could do something like this on a really low budget.. like I said it’s all about putting in the time!
