How about these dinosaurs, you could wrap them seperately and they could be five stocking fillers.

Dinosaurs

I got them for my son for Christmas, I think they are slightly weird looking personally but they came highly recommended.

thanks guys. been and bought some socks from poundland and choc coins from b and m to start things off!

BedPig2013 Wed 19-Nov-14 19:39:54

Dd will be 22 months, she's getting
Pyjamas
vests and pants
slipper socks

a couple of books
chocolate santa or reindeer
satsuma

DD (just 24 months) is getting:

Bubbles - 50p from Tiger
Large choc coin
Happyland surprise figure
Satsuma
Apple
Red flock bouncy ball
CBeebies magazine
Hair slides
Ikea soft toy mouse
Munchkin bath bugs
Light-up bath ducks from Tiger
Paper animals from Tiger
Hotel Chocolat Tiddly Pot (mini choc buttons)
Hot chocolate sachet

Pretty much everything was in the sale and under a couple of pounds/under £2 anyway/free/on Boots advantage card points - I estimate I spent nearly exactly £20 in total on the stocking, which I think isn't too extravagant smile

Good idea on the raisins, I might borrow that - DD not normally allowed them but I have a spare pack I removed from a Waitrose children's lunch bag!

Poundland do great socks smile
At that age they really don't mind what's in the stocking so I would do big things to fill it up, and don't be afraid to put things you'd normally need in there too, like bubble bath and nice cutlery set, plate etc.
Other ideas:
Bouncy ball (3yo ds asked for this!)
Goodies selection box
Board books (poundland have great selection usually)
Character plate, beaker etc
Balloon?
First washable markers

DS was that age last year. My advice is that 4 presents (including a 'main one) is more than enough. He was completely uninterested in anything after opening the toy toaster. Save your money for future years!

JuniperTisane Wed 19-Nov-14 19:53:08

Ds is getting:

Bouncy light-up ball
toy helicopter and car
slipper socks
small book (Raa-Raa)
Schleich animal
Satsuma
small choc thing ? Snowman or similar

Im goig for stuff that needs no or very little help to play with.

Last year, when my dd was that age, I remember getting her:
Tube of white chocolate buttons (Poundland)
Peppa slides and bobbles, and comb/mirror kit (both Poundland)
Tub of chunky crayons from Wilkos, about £1.25
This year, things I'm getting her which would also be suitable for younger children include:
Wooden castanets, £1 off eBay including delivery
Cheetah hand puppet, £1 off eBay including delivery
Toy Thomas train, couple of pounds off eBay I think.
Peppa magic painting book, which was about £3 from The Book People or similar.
Stickers - 2 packs for £1 from Poundland, wide range of themes available.

thanks think i have more than enough to run with now.

missrabbit im with you there. he has 3 presents off us (spent about £20) plus some clothes to open 'properly' but i want to get into the habit of a stocking too

can i just ask too, do you wrap stocking gifts? neither me nor DP or anyone I know in rl has ever done them you see

Missrabbitshouldjoinaunion Thu 20-Nov-14 11:00:48

Yy - my advice would be give him the thing you're most excited about first, otherwise they'll be fascinated with a pair of £1 caster nets and the toy kitchen you've been desperate to show them (or whatever) will go ignored!

It's like you need to switch the order around with little ones - older children you'd probably work up to a finale!

Or maybe I'm just a control freak who was looking forward to playing with the toy kitchen a lot myself!!!! smile

Szeli Thu 20-Nov-14 15:08:27

haha its ok the toy kitchen is ready assembled at grandmas for when we get there after our pressies at home grin
