I buy extra large Christmas crackers and put extra gifts inside , I usually put in a scratch card and perhaps some earrings but I really struggle for little gifts for men can anyone think of anything for me?

We just usually get those wee mind bender puzzles or a magic trick for anyone over the age of appreciating kinder egg style crap.

Cuff links
Key ring
Stylus pen - pound shops do cheap ones
Golf tees
Guitar picks
Sample size aftershave, etc
Comb
Mini screwdriver ( the kind that goes on a key ring) - got one in halfords years ago
Gadget key rings
USB stick (saw Lego brick ones in primark)
Mini puzzles ( though I'd be irritated not to get one too as a female)
Tiny torch
Survival cord bracelets

Wow there's some good ideas there, I particularly like the survival bracelet idea

I'd say either buy with a specific person in mind and get them a present or don't get men/women gifts.

If all the men at a table got interesting presents and I got earrings I'd be a bit hmm tbh. Also previously posters list is quite good but again only for specific people as if you are randomly handing out guitar pics and golf tees it will seem odd as majority of people won't be able to use them

I got cute ironman cuff links on Amazon a few years ago for a couple of pound. You can get lots of different designs (though delivery is from China so order in advance)

When I did them in the past I put in a mini bottle of booze and a Lindt ball. The hat and joke came with the kit.

I decided it was an expensive idea and haven't done it since.

I buy the 3x miniatures of gin/brandy/whisky and split them up. I also put in a scratch card for the men's crackers too fsmile

Shops like Tiger are great for this type of thing!

What about these (for either sex):
Packet of herb/flower seeds
Mini highlighters
Cookie cutters
Mini notebook and pen
Folding reusable shopping bag
Multi-way retractable charging cable
Credit card tool
Manicure set
Measuring spoons
Fridge magnets
Socks
