Could anyone help me with some ideas for cheap stocking fillers please? I have a 9yo ds, 7yo dd and a 1yo dd.

Giant Toblerone
A DVD (£3)
Bubble mixture
Hot Wheels cars
A cheap torch
Cheap purse (H&M)
Hair accessories
A really bouncy ball
A book

I have never bothered with the tat you normally find in stocking and pick a few larger things that will get used/read/played with, rather than kicked under the sofa.

My two younger ones are getting a brolly each in their stocking this year.

They really want them. A lot.

You can buy individual Lego pieces from the Lego store online, including really cool things like cups, croissants grin, and pizzas.

Oh, my DS would love an umbrella pictish.

You can get them for as little as £3 in B&M. Kids love brollies.

Coloured pencils
Felt pens (for the daring parents among you)
Good little paint sets with a brush

Joke stuff
Flavoured toothpaste
Chocolate Brussels sprouts / clementines (from m & s)
Bubble bath
'Frozen' jewellery (asda had some quite cheap)
Mini lego sets

Things they're not normally allowed (eg particular sweets, bottle of pop etc) so that Santa must've brought them!

Good places to look are:

B&M Bargains
Home Bargains
Poundland / world
The Works
Hawkins Bazzar

I have a 7yo DD, so far she is getting top trumps (Roald Dahl ones from ebay), a lego mixels bag, a colour your own spinning top, a pack of oidroids.

Will also get character knickers and socks, and obviously something edible!

BikeRunSki Wed 05-Nov-14 21:10:51

Character pants and socks

Guitargirl Wed 05-Nov-14 21:11:07

Our 7 year old DD will be having lots of stationery in hers, I think I could take out shares in Paperchase at the moment fgrin. Also some bits and pieces from accessorize. Sweets from the American sweet shop. Character bath stuff from wilkos and poundland. Lipgloss. Lush bath bomb.

ByTheWishingWell Wed 05-Nov-14 21:16:33

Kiddicare have a 50% off sale on some of the toys at the moment. My DD will be 16 months at Christmas, and I've got most of her stocking fillers from there- cheap bath toys, stacking cups, etc.
Also, the Book People for cheap books for all of them.

fuzzpig Wed 05-Nov-14 21:21:49

I would like stuff from the American sweet shop in MY stocking! A box of fruit runts would make my Christmas grin

Guitargirl Wed 05-Nov-14 21:23:20

I love their different flavoured M&Ms.

fuzzpig Wed 05-Nov-14 21:24:37

What ones have you tried? I liked the mint ones and keep meaning to try the pretzels.

(Sorry for hijack grin)

Guitargirl Wed 05-Nov-14 21:31:11

Mmmm, yes minty ones lovely, also orange, cherry and white chocolate. Not keen on coconut.

fuzzpig Wed 05-Nov-14 21:35:04

Cherry ones?!? Oh wow I had no idea about them, will keep an eye out, thanks.

For DD I mean. Not me. Obviously. <whistles>

Somethingpink Fri 07-Nov-14 14:54:22

Thank you everyone

I decided on getting them a Terry's chocolate orange, toblerone, tube of sweets and jellybean boozled for their sweet stuff. For 1 year old dd she has just got a little set of 5 chocolate teddy bears.

I popped into wilkos today and got little wind up toys, pencils, rubbers, notepads and various other things for around 50p-£1.50 each. grin
