Just wondering what stocking fillers others have got for their other half as I need inspiration. I normally give things like chocolate, bottles of alcohol, shower gel, fun bookmarks and socks etc, but feel like it's all been done again and again. As a main present I've got him a magazine subscription and jumper he asked for.

Stockings for adults? shock

Good god I have enough stress in my life filling 3 stockings for DC

DP is big enough and ugly enough to cope without one grin

My DP gets a stocking but that's all as we don't exchange 'main' pressies.

So far have got

Pringle socks (he likes the Pringle ones)
Ski socks
Expensive jam and marmalade from posh deli (he loves these but cannot normally afford)

Need to get a few more bits though.....

Er, nothing. It's not like he would bother with one for me!

I don't usually do a stocking for DH but felt like it this year, TBH it's a good way of presenting some bits and bobs rather than him getting lots of little parcels, he's getting.

Nice socks in a little tin
A phone case
Phone screen protectors
A starbucks card
Nice shower gel from lush
Gloves - haven't got these yet.

Dh has a new nutcracker, net of walnuts, a toasting fork for the fire and massive American marshmallows, slipper socks, a jigsaw puzzle, dark chocolate marzipan sweets and a bottle of whiskey. We decided not to do 'main' presents this year.

It's just something we've always done and the tradition continues now we have kids. We all snuggle up/sit on the bed and open whats in them before going downstairs.

SpicedTeaAndXmasCakeOrDeath Tue 10-Dec-13 15:04:44

Some pocket sized puzzles from The Happy Puzzle Company, socks, lindt chocolates, vodka and some bacon jam

groovejet Tue 10-Dec-13 16:01:37

A pair of boxers
A book
A couple of the little packets from The Spicery
Mini pot of Lucky Charms cereal, odd I know but he likes them and usually hard to find / too expensive
A lion king toy from the stage production, that we watched in the summer
A nice christmas bauble

So far:
A mini wheelie bin with Slime in, as he missed out when he was a child
A mini-frying pan for a single egg, as he's the only one who likes them
Some chocolate
I don't know if I'll get much else, tbh. I do always put a satsuma in everyone's stocking as well, for tradition's sake and because I used to find it helped stop me feeling sick after I'd demolished the Cadbury's selection!

I haven't got him stocking fillers as such. I did get him a personalised message eye mask off ebay though. Last year I got him some chilli liquorice off amazon.

FoxMulder Tue 10-Dec-13 16:25:53

Ooh, I wish someone would get me a stocking. I loved it as a kid. Not from DH though, that would just be spending my money which I don't approve of smile

I've never done a stocking for DH, but I am doing a homemade selection box for him this year. Going to get some Charlie Brown wrapping paper and cover a shoebox with it, then fill it with chocolate bars, probably some amusing (to me) crap from the Pound Shop and some Penguin socks from TK Maxx.

SpottyDottie Tue 10-Dec-13 18:25:08

Nothing! He's a bit meh about christmas in the first place. Not bothered about presents and would be totally hmm about stockings for adults. Don't get me wrong, he's a lovely DH but doesn't really like christmas!!

This year in DHs stocking is:
A packet of nobby's nuts

DH is getting posh chilli chocolate, spicy nuts, jalapeno bacon salt, posh hot sauce, posh spicy seasoning, a head massager and a belt. I'll probably impulse buy more as I see it. I always over-buy for stockings!
