This month, Magic Freebies asked YOU what you'd ditch at Christmas if faced with a tight budget, and the results were shocking - over half of you said that you'd ditch the Christmas stocking.
There's nothing quite like waking up on Christmas morning and seeing a stocking at the end of your bed. Full of sentimental gifts and little treats, these charming packages definitely add an extra personal touch to our day.
So why would so many of us choose to forgo them? Well, although they may be small, the little bits and bobs inside can soon add up to quite a sum, with the average stocking spend totalling £37. Multiply that by all your family members, and it's a hefty addition to your budget.
Well, there won't be any stocking ditching under my watch, as I've found a way to fill a stocking for every single member of your family full without spending a penny.
With the help of these fantastic freebies worth a HUGE £41, you'll be able to give your loved ones so many goodies, they'll think you've spent a fortune!
