I work in B&M – here's the best toys and stocking fillers I've picked up for Christmas from £2.50 | The Sun
25th November 2022

A B&M employee has revealed her top Christmas picks in store after spending "all her wages" on a huge haul.

Mel Booth is no stranger to the amazing deals the bargain retailer has on offer as she spends her working day surrounded by the stock.




So it's no surprise that it was the first place the Scots mum of two visited when it was time to do her own Christmas shopping.

Mel bagged a selection of toys, decorations, stocking fillers and advent calendars in her festive spree without breaking the bank.

Sharing her haul in a TikTok video (@mel.booth90), she said: "Hi, so today I’m going to do a B&M haul and I am very, very lucky because yes I am a member of staff in B&M.

"So when it’s pay day, we sort of all just file it back into B&M again.

"I've spent all my wages and put them back into my work.

"But it’s ok, because it’s Christmas and because we need to spend money on Christmas."

The savvy mum picked up a selection of Peppa Pig toys, a Hey Duggy adventure bus, toy cars and a Cocomelon puzzle for her nieces and nephews – with prices from £8.

For her own children, she bagged a Lego Groot set for £35.99, and took advantage of the shop's two for £20 offer to pick up some mechanical lego toys.

She also got an adorable Lilo and Stitch Squishmallow for £10.99, adding: "How cute is he? For my wee boy. He loves Squishmallows and Stitch seems to be his favourite this year.

"£10.99 for that size. I must be mad but again, it’s for Christmas."

Turning to decorations, the B&M worker warned customers which item they should get their hands on now before it sells out.

Mel picked up a giant light up door bow in red for £12.

She told shoppers: "I think they come in gold and silver too but where I work we didn’t have a lot left because they’re selling out the door."

Mel concluded her epic Christmas haul with some advent calendars for her family.

She said: "I don’t know about you guys, but do you not feel like every year they bring out another advent calendar, they get more and more expensive as the years go on?

"But yes, I’m one of those mums who likes to have a different advent calendar for the boys. So this year I went with Barrett sweeties.

"I think they were £5 each, so one each for the kids. And I couldn’t leave hubby out, because I’m a nice wife.

"So hubby got a Toxic Waste calendar and that was only £2.50 which I thought was really, really good. I do not like the sweeties, can’t stand them. But he seems to like them."

And B&M fans are loving Mel's purchases.

One said: "Great haul."

Meanwhile, another added: "Awesome prices for advents. Iremember growing up ours were just empty inside still so much excitement to open each morning."
