Watching with great interest!
I have 2 teens and a 10yo to do stockings for.....it's getting bloody expensive. Gone are the days of raiding Home Bargains for cheap shit! wink

I have bought posh pencils, pop tarts, mini Lynx things, Starbucks voucher, sweets, novelty socks etc.

I'm tempted to entirely fill my teenager's stocking with charger cables.

How about a teen-friendly sort of 'escape for an hour from the relatives' stocking with a magazine, favourite chocolate and sweets, mug with coffee sachets in it, new socks, etc. No wasted stuff and when you tip him the wink he can do the teenager slinking-off thing for a while grin

Gregg's voucher.

Also any ideas for teen girls? I have boy and girl teens and for the first time am struggling a bit with dd 13.5. She has enough smellies and makeup in her room already to start her own super drug branch! Have got a marshmallow Toasting set and a little glass dish thing for earrings so far.

I already posted this suggestion on a similar thread for 17yr old's stocking ideas...but these are ALWAYS well-received by teens:

Things for his phone- emergency charger, extra long charging cable, bag for drying out phone that's been dropped in water (hopefully won't be needed!).

The mobile phone dryer bag is an inspired idea!!
