I recently received an email from BritMums inviting me to take part in the Sportsdirect.com £5 Christmas Challenge. The challenge involved shopping for gifts from Sports Direct that cost £5. I was sent a code that allowed me to choose gifts up to the value of £30 (including postage).
I decided that as there are five other members of my immediate family, I would buy a gift for each of them. The five members include my husband, 16 year old son, 13 year old son and 6 year old twins. Buying for my teenagers is always a challenge, so I approached the challenge with slight trepidation.
Normally I only venture into Sports Direct when my children need sports items for school, so I was pleasantly surprised when viewing the website that lots more items are offered and a wide range of gifts.
Incredibly I managed to buy five gifts for around £5 each and still had money left over for the £4.99 delivery charge.
Here are the results!:-
It was fairly easy choosing for my daughters as I spotted these slippers which I'm pretty sure they will love. I'm not sure if I will wrap them up for Christmas or pop into our Christmas Eve box, along with some new pyjama's.
My 16 year old son is into gaming and Assassins Creed is a favourite game of his. This T shirt was a bit of a bargain, reduced from £14.99 to £4.99.
My 13 year old son is a massive Liverpool fan and is also a lover of gadgets, so this Liverpool fidget spinner is right up his street. Another bargain, reduced from £9.99 to £5.
For my husband - socks! You can never have too many socks, right?
All in all the shopping experience was enjoyable and the range of gifts available is surprisingly large and very reasonably priced.
My only criticism is that some of the labels on the gifts were quite tricky to remove - leaving a sticky residue.
I also feel that delivery to the store should be free, if you wish to collect your items. At the moment it's £4.99 to have your items delivered to your home address and £4.99 to be delivered to your local store for collection, which I think is a little strange?
I will definitely be popping into my local Sports Direct Store soon, with the view to buy more stocking fillers.
