Stocking fillers for kids: cheap and cheerful ideas
If your child's been well-behaved enough not to get a lump of coal and you're after fun, reasonably priced treats to put in their stocking, then browse our selection of small but perfectly formed stocking fillers. None of them cost more than £7, most are well under a fiver and they should even last past Boxing Day.
And may we suggest The Book of Bedtime Stories, our very own book for children under seven, as an extra-special stocking filler or gift to leave under the tree.

- If your children are leaving their empty stockings on their beds, then may I suggest duplicate stockings, ready stuffed and hidden away. Et voila! A swift swap rather than the sneak in to get empty stocking and the hissy fit as you try to cram everything in the stockings whilst
very drunka bit tired. Trumpton
