Hi, this is a little idea.
The minimum top up is £10 so maybe giffgaff should let us top up £5. I'm a light user and don't need much of anything. So being able to top up £5 would be nice.
I very rarely use my phone and £10 lasts me at least 6 months, only use wifi on it too so the 3 month free calls expire well before my airtime, question is would £5 come with 3months or 6 weeks free giffgaff to giffgaff calls?
but must admit a £5 option would be handy in times of need
I think this is something many want but as far as I know its not cost effective to process smaller payments. I will support all the same, you never know.
If the problem is having an 'odd' amount of credit left that won't cover the cost of a goodybag and adding small amounts isn't practicable, then why not allow any top-up if more than £10? Example: if you have £3 credit and need £10 for your goodybag allow a top-up of £17 to give you £20 = two goodybags.

You HAVE to use up goodybags within one month - no good for someone who say only uses phone and needs £2 or £3 worth of calls in a month.
Agree 100%. I only use mobile for emergencies, so less that £5 per month.
"credit/debit card in increments of £1 with a minimum of £1 top up. I am sure this would not cost the company any more than topping up with £10."
You are right that it wouldn't cost any more in cash terms, but it would be a much bigger percentage of the topup. I don't know the figures, but 50p in a £10 topup may be affordable but 50p in a £1 topup is not. How much does it cost when you withdraw cash from a machine that is not your own bank? I believe some charge well over £1.
been suggested so many time before, but giffgaff have said that this is just not possible due to cost reasons
