HOAR has rounded up the best stocking fillers from small businesses, costing less than £5 each

These gifts show that Christmas doesn’t have to come at a premium, and shopping from small businesses can be a way to bag something unique.

As always, make sure you compare prices yourself to make sure you’ve found the cheapest price for what you’re looking for.

It’s also worth noting that Christmas is just three weeks away, so stock availability could change.

If you’re ordering online, you’ll also want to make sure you factor in any delivery or click and collect costs.

For your home

Wax melts from Glam Wax (£3.50) – buy now

For a comforting smell of fresh sheets Glam Wax is your go to

Wax melts are scented chunks of wax that release fragrance when heated, but the wax does not evaporate.

Unlike candles, they are wickless so need heating in either a tealight or electric wax burner.

They make a fabulous alternative to scented candles as not only are they cheaper but also stronger in fragrance. Wax melts can hold more fragrance oil than candles. 

Shipping comes in at £3.50 for these.
