“Sportsdirect.com is not just football boots and inexpensive trainers. It features fashion brands, leisurewear and more! Because of its buying power, Sportsdirect.com is able to get products you’d expect to pay more for elsewhere. Their range of £5 gifts for Christmas means you can shop for family, friends, teachers even your book-club buddies for less!”
I have to say I was a bit sceptical as I literally know sports direct as a sports goods store where I shop for my brother’s cricket or football supplies and on the odd occasion go to purchase trainers, but that’s it. However I went over to the Christmas Section of their store and oh my goodness, it was like a whole other world opening up.
They have several sections which have been split up two ways – gifts for him/her etc or categories like Toys and Games, Fragrances, Jewellery and Watches and much much more. So to start with this was a complete surprise as like I said I didn’t realise they went beyond the latest football kits.
Toys and games is an amazing section and is not what you would expect. Honestly, I was half expecting to open up the section and see a lot of plastic tat that is really only worth 99p not even a fiver. However, shockingly, most of their stock is actually branded goods! You can find Frozen, Minions and Paw Patrol Merchandise galore – enough to satisfy any of the adoring fans in your house. They had a lot of the craft sets and Weird Science stuff too so I grabbed this Zombie Making set for £4 for Rowan this Christmas – bargain!
Jewellery and watches I honestly didn’t expect to find anything I’d like or could afford for a fiver but again another pleasant surprise. There were several half decent watches that I would actually wear for under a fiver as well as kids character watches! What I really loved were these funky pedometers – keeping fit is actually making a fashionable comeback in a way so something like this would be perfect for the budding fitness fanatic in the family.
You don’t however, have to stick to just the Christmas shop. I went for a nosy around the main site and thought I’d have a look through the mens fashion as I know that SportsDirect host brands like Lee Cooper and Firetrap and oh my goodness you need to get over to the t-shirts section right now! They have a sale on that not only brings the branded and in some case designer t-shirts down to below a fiver, they also have an offer of 2 for £7 on too! I grabbed a couple of t-shirts including this incredibly cool Hot Tuna t-shirt to give out to the men in the family this Christmas!
