Whether you’re looking to top up a stocking or need a present for that difficult-to-buy-for individual, there can be a few stressful hours wasted on trying to find those little presents during your Christmas shopping.

Whoever you are looking to buy for, this handy guide will hopefully give you some ideas. Here I make some suggestions for presents under £10 for the different personalities in your life.  

The Techie on the Go
You are sure to know someone who is forever on their tabletor notebook. Maybe they are a regular commuter who likes to catch up with their favourite series on their way into work or perhaps it’s a colleague who does work on the train. Tablet Slip Cases (available for £9.99 from Electric Shop) are a convenient lightweight solution to protecting devices.

For fans of actors such as Robert De Niro and Sly Stallone, there are some great box sets of their classic films on DVD to provide hours of entertainment. Websites such as Zavvi and WOWHD run some great DVD offers. Alternatively, if your friend or family member is a telly addict, there are some great series available for under £10 from An Idiot Abroad to Downton Abbey.



The No Fuss Music Fan
The Pin Badge Mp3 Player available at notonthehighstreet.com is a small, portable DVD player capable of fitting on up to 200 songs. To add extra thought to the gift you could load up the light weight gadget with songs that your recipient loves.
