Take a look at some gorgeous gifts I found on Folksy that don't cost the earth. Everything here is under £5. Hows that for a bargain!

  2. Little pink purse with matryoshka dolls from Haptree and Me £4
  3. Cute little textile house from Kitty Eden £4.50
  4. 'Do you hold the key?' angel fridge magnet from Lynn Fraser £2
  5. Canary bird bookmark from Glue and Glitter £3
  6. Organic red felted tub from Snowdrops and Daisies £5
  7. Diamond ring pocket mirror by Magic Alice £3
  8. Gorgeous star brooch by Polka £4.75

I was spoilt for choice when picking items so will do some more £5 and under gift ideas for children and then fellow crafters in the next week or so. Watch this space!
