Need some inspiration. DD is 3 - so far I've got socks, colouring pencils, stickers, sketch book, orange, apple, chocolate coins..bit dull.

My 3 yr old DD is getting:

A pack of pants
Some choc coins
A pink nail varnish
Some stickers
A pink lipgloss (free off a magazine, confiscated and found again tonight)
Some plasters with cartoon animals on
A block of white cards for drawing on
Some new hair bands
A fairy princess figurine to replace hers which broke
A sparkly mirror (given by her gran)
Some felt tips
A bracelet and necklace set
An apple (won't eat clementines)

Reading that back it does sound very girly - none of her other presents are so maybe that's why. Much of it is stuff she needed anyway so I wrapped it.

Socks, choc coins, felt tips, books, board game, vests, facepaint.

So far for 3yo DS I have:

Chocolate money
A little Disney Cars mug with sweets in
Monkey toy (free with the PG Tips)
Dinosaur cookie cutters

I'm looking for some Christmas socks and hopefully will pop into Hawkins Bazaar to get a couple of little toys and that should do it.

DS is 2.3. He is getting:

Dizzy toy (from Bob the Builder)
JCB board books
DVD of kids singing nursery rhymes.
Might get him a Peppa magazine
Individual carton of apple juice (really. I'm not tight he LOVES these)
Socks sounds like a good idea.

Granny is getting all sorts of sweetie crap for her grandchildren, 18.5-2.3, all under one roof for first time ever.

dd is 5 and her stocking just has chocolate, things like the smarties penguin, lint reindeer ect - i don't let her eat it all at once and i have more than enough little bits of plastic toot in the house without buying more for her stocking!

2.5 year old DS is getting a book, toothbrush, socks, thomas the tank engine for his train set, choc coins, mini drawing pad with pencils, mini felt (or magnetic?) thomas the tank engine tin, gruffalo pencils, chalk (for the easel his GPs are getting him) and he'll definitely get a clementine. Even though he doesn't like them!

I've never put chocolate in DCs stockings as they get loads from other people and last year we were still eating Xmas chocolate come Easter (we are very mean and ration chocolate!) I tend to try and ensure that some of the things that go onto the Santa list are small enough to fit in a stocking (eg the DVDs and hairbands) so other than these things they only get one other, bigger, thing from Santa (DD is getting a swing for her dolls and DS a Farm set)
