Ds1 will be 10 this year. Stuff he usually likes in his stocking are: - chocolate coins - pencils and notepads (he's always writing something or other!) - one of them novelty magic flannel things that are tiny then go huge in the bath - a dvd (just about squeezes in there) he'd love joke things too so might have to steal that idea for this year!
Yeah, only June but some people like to get ahead... Their choice..
Op, boys are so hard, girls much easier . At that age, ds would have still enjoyed a comic. Nearer Christmas shops like homestore, pound stretcher etc might have little puzzles - metal or wood mazey type things. if he has a computer, rewrite able disks or disk holders. Cheap books or DVDs. Novelty boxers. Take a look at Hawkins bazaar, I think they're quite expensive but have a dd who is easy to buy cheap stocking fillers for so it balances out
