Small gifts for non-girlie females

Unlike my family, OHs family have never done stockings. Sil commented how nice our stockings looked (we all have one, including OH) and OH told me he wanted to do stockings for his sisters for next Xmas.

I love shopping for stocking fillers and my sister even puts me in charge of her children's stockings. I buy throughout the year to take advantage of offers and bargains.

I would love some ideas as to small stocking fillers. None of them are particularly girlie so I don't want to go overboard on smellies and make up, although a few is okay.

I'm struggling for ideas, so far I have thought of:
Lottery ticket
Chocolate Santa
Mini wine bottle

How about some nice nail files and a pair of headphones?

Handbag sized hairbrush
Small can of dry shampoo
A small Christmas tree decoration
Pack of highlighter pens
DH always gets nail clippers

If you gave a pound shop nearby, you can sometimes find little gems during regular trips.

Do they have any hobbies? My friends a keen knitter and I got her some handcrafted stitch markers to put in her cracker.
Also a small coin purse or wallet?
Key ring? Maybe one with a supermarket trolley coin?
Mini torch?
Note/address book?

Peel off face mask sachets. Mind you, I did one and cried it hurt so much! DD said it was because my face is too hairy
