I've misplaced a bag somewhere & it has the last few advent gifts in. Is not in the garage or in my usual stash places confused

I've done a mix of choc coins, activities (main one panto mid month) and small presents (£3 for 5 from claire's accessories outlet mainly).

I'm not close enough to the outlet to nip out for more cheap things so am hoping you lot will bombard me with super cheap Amazon links that
will arrive quickly so I don't have to pay bus fare to town.

Any ideas or suggestions would be lovely! tyvm smile

Age ?

sorry, that would have been helpful blush

They're nearly five and nearly eight. Both girls.

You could just do a coin (20/50/£1). They are young enough to like a small amount of money.

Coins are a good idea, will raid dp's pocket and see what he has, I've only got enough change for Brownies tonight.

If you search for party bag erasers there are loads of little packs of pretty erasers for a pound or two including P&P.

Check Amazon seller deliver times carefully as lots of the bargains come from overseas and can take over a month to arrive.

I'm not sure if this would be ok for a nearly 8 year old, but my 4 and 6 year old like Squinkies. You can get a 16 pack for £4 including delivery

I'll check my Amazon wish list for other low cost UK items...

...lots of loom band packs for around 70p including delivery from UK sellers. You could split them into colours and spread them over a few days. You can make loom bracelets on your fingers if you don't have a loom.

50 fun snaps for 99p. For your older DC of course and under careful supervision!

Thank you! Pennies, squinkies and loom bands will go down well.

Still no sign of the bag anywhere confused I've even checked in the garage and in the decoration boxes as they went up.

I just hope I haven't cleared it out amongt all the bits I've charity shopped and binned.

It'll turn up just as soon as you've clicked "confirm payment" on the last replacement...

grin yep, I imagine so!

A clue to start a treasure hunt round the house with the final clue leading to the biscuit tin.

grrrr...it turned up! In the drawer where I keep cards and birthday banners (just cleared out stuff I held onto but have never got round to using & put all the bows/ribbon in a shoe box so they're easy to get to) so was a sort of sensible place for them confused
