Could maybe stretch to £15,but can anyone rise to the challenge?Kids stockings easy enough to do under £10 but finding it much harder to do for adult,and want to do something nice for him as he's been amazing (more than usual) this year!

Have you had a look at onlinepoundstore?

Aftershave miniatures, bottle of hot chilli sauce, alcohol miniatures, gift voucher (xbox, game, iTunes, eatery) chocolates or sweets, small pointless gadgets

I put a bottle opener for beer in DP's every year it's become a running joke.
A continental bar from thorntons
A mini bottle of red
A tin of mints
Some body shop hemp hand cream
A curry spice mix
Cuff links
Mini christmas pud
All the above have gone down well

Need more ideas too so watching

-A love letter
- A filth letter grin
-Vouchers or passes for lie ins, favourite dinners, choosing what to watch on tv
- photo of you or kids or best dad artwork in a photo keyring
- home made biscuits - maybe you have a little tin or brown paper and string to wrap

We have a satsuma and an Apple in the toe and a large cheap Santa in the top. Then toiletries, and some chocs, from the pound shop.

littlesupersparks Fri 28-Nov-14 20:48:32

Pound shop for toblerone, couple of tools. Socks and pants go in my husband's but they are pricey! Umm silly little wind up toys, fake snow, favourite biscuits, hot choc sachets if he likes that sort of thing...

littlesupersparks Fri 28-Nov-14 20:49:17

Lidl do big choc Santas for 99p or something.

Can or bottle of beer
Library membership - are libraries still free? We have a great library though
Cheap Sports socks
Shaving foam
Little homemade book of puzzles or crossword or jokes printed from internet

I couldn't fill my dcs stockings for under £10!!
I don't do stockings for anyone other than my dc as I always thought of them as children's things, but the dc get dp things and wrap them.
Some of those things this year are:
Lego ice cube tray
Gloves (he has never to my knowledge worn gloves but they seemed pleased!)
Hotel chocolat penguins
Mini air hockey set
Scratch card
Giant ferrero rocher
Football socks

DH usually gets something along the lines of:
bottle of 'posh' beer (Duchy or somesuch)
jar of mustard
a pork pie
shower gel
something stupid like stick on moustaches or wind up grannies

YesIDidMeanToBeSoRudeActually Fri 28-Nov-14 21:31:16

Fuck, the grin was meant to be after the whole sentence. That comment looks awkward now! Sorry.

I found coasters on Amazon with album covers from his favourite band on. They were less than £7 if I remember and he loves them.
School did a bottle opener with the childrens school photo on . That was an interesting present as you felt bad every time you opened a beer and also made you feel like you deserved a beer.
Whistling key ring is a £1 in Maplin if he's prone to losing stuff. Not sure it works that well but shows you care?
