Advent calendar presents for teenagers please

(5 Posts)

I make a sort of sewn advent calendar out of magazines or book pages that you can tear open...imagine bunting made of little envelopes hmm

Each day contains either a chocolate OR a tiny present. In the past it has been rubbers, fortune telling fish etc, but I am running out of ideas.

DS is 15 DD is 18.I have tried to suggest that they are too old, and I have tried to suggest that They just want chocolate.
Apparently I am wrong shock, they LOVE this bit of Christmas and would rather forgo one of their presents than not have the advent calendars.

Any suggestions very very gratefully recieved for the tiny presents please

Appropriate verse from bible story if you are celebrating birth of Jesus Christ. Fortune cookie. Lego minifigures, small jewellery, coins, lottery tickets,

Shrink and copy old photos, kids artwork or sayings onto stickers or magnetic sheets. Intersperse with choc, coins etc so surprise each time.


This is my new shopping list

Perfume or aftershave samples, face masks, mini highlighters, chap sticks, hot chocolate sachet, iou voucher for getting out of washing dishes, cinema voucher, something to remind them of their childhood, if you have kept any old letters to fc, they would be lovely or a little toy that they used to love (hotwheels, lego figure, Polly pocket) for DD, a miniture of her favorite tipple, hand warmers, slipper socks, pocket diary.

I quite fancy doing one for my dcs now after coming up with all these ideas grin
