Possession for names that end in S?

So both DH and DS have names which end in s. Stupid me!

I normally convolute sentences to allow me to avoid plurals or possession as I'm hazy on the rules and it is making me look very old fashioned!

So (using the name Charles as it's totally unconnected with either of them), how do I make "the pencil case belonging to Charles" or "the dinner of Charles" look less clunky? (I think it's Charles' with no additional s, unlike David's?)

TIA!
