How often have you read articles with ideas for stocking fillers and then discovered the price is hundreds of pounds? We’re not sure about you, but that price doesn’t say stocking filler to us (unless you’re a millionaire of course!) Our suggestions have a far more modest price-tag, and we’re proud to say that every one of them comes from a small business around the UK. What are you waiting for?! Check them out below…

These businesses did not pay to be featured, and we do not receive any commission for any purchases made through these links. We just thought the products would be a good fit for our audience!

Our first suggestion comes from Badass Mother Runners and is their Running Buff which comes in at £10. They are incredibly versatile and can be worn multiple different ways, from a headband, to neck covering, to around your wrist. In a choice of 4 colours, this versatile piece of kit is a must-have for the Badass fitness enthusiast in your life!

If you’re not sure that would keep your gift recipient warm enough, how about this fabulous beanie from Quad Store? Available in Antique Mustard or Antique Grey the Beanie is £15 and with free UK shipping, we’re sure you’ll love it as much as we do!

Our next gift idea is from an up and coming brand, Harrier. Their soft flasks are so bright and colourful we just had to feature them! Their ultra-wide neck makes them easy to refill and add additional hydration/energy powders, gels or tablets. Priced from £8 they have flasks of different volumes, with or without straws and made to fit most race vests.

Sometimes the only thing to do is curl up on the sofa with a cup of something hot. Whatever your reason, Positive Instinct do an enormous range of mugs, from funny, to rude, to work related, hobbies and everything in between, you’re bound to find the perfect cup here. At £10.95 and free delivery, the only choice will be which one to buy?!

Now we’d like to introduce Notch. This is an incredible gift, whether you’re adding a Notch to an existing collection, or whether you’re starting someone on their Notch-worthy journey. At the time of writing there is a choice of 14 bracelet colours and 11 notch colours. The range of available notches is expanding rapidly, but even if there isn’t a notch for the event you want right now, there is an option to personalise your own! The only limit is your own imagination (and a limit to 25 characters)!

Trainer tags are a great way for the fitness enthusiast in your life to keep your love and encouragement with them, even when you can’t be! Check out these hand stamped, completely customisable, tags from Love and Stardust for just £10-12!

Finally, from our own range, we’d like to feature the fleece-lined headband. Perfect for cold or windy days, it will keep you warm without making you overheat.  Handmade in any of our fabulous prints and lined with black fleece, it wicks away any moisture ensuring you stay dry. Whatever your activity, this is a great option at £12.00 with free UK delivery.
