Ideas for Cracker Gifts for Men

I am doing my own crackers this year, and am totally stuck for ideas for gifts for the men. Not prepared to spend more than a couple of quid each (tight grin

The ladies have earrings, the kids have lego minifigures, but the men are proving more difficult.

I have DH, Dad (aged 72) and BIL. Obviously need to be quite small to fit in the crackeres comfortably.

Any ideas gratefully received!

Any of them wear glasses? You can get the fancier cleaning cloth things from an opticians. Or, if they're anything like the men in my family, a lego mini figure same as the kids!

My dh is getting a whisky miniature in his cracker. And father in law is getting a wine aerator/pourer in his. I did consider rolled up new socks too at one point

Nope, unfortunately the only one who wears glasses is me! Very nervous of drink miniatures as last year I put lip glosses in (for the ladies, not the men!) and one flew out of the cracker, hit the floor and broke. Plus one of the men is a non-drinker anyway. Otherwise they'd have been good suggestions!

Ah that's a shame. I know it's boring but what about a key ring of some sort? Or a help for heroes/other charity type wristband?

I've got a pair of cufflinks, a pair of headphones and a mini keyring screwdriver in mine.

Some 'grown up' chocolates - chocolate coated coffee beans (whittards), chocolate liqueur chocolates, choc coated brandy cherries.

A lottery ticket.

Memory stick.

Thanks for the ideas...they're not the type of blokes to go for wristbands, don't wear cufflinks, BIL had the screwdriver last year I think, already have chocolates in the crackers and one doesn't agree with gambling, so lottery ticket would be out. Blimey, they're a difficult bunch! Could do headphones/keyring for one though and lottery tickets for the other two, so definitely a poSsibility! Thanks!
