i tend to get those little figure/character bags with the single toys in, so you can get them for moshi, ben 10, lego, playmobil, zomblings...etc

i also do chocolate coins, stationary..etc.

i'm also partial to buying sets of figures, opening the packaging and wrapping them separately! Thinking of doing it with the Frozen set of figures for dd this year.

I would do more too but dh says no too sad

I just love Christmas time grin

Posted on the bargains thread, but thought I would add it here too for any who might miss it. Poundland had some packets of Nanoblock animals - I managed to get this panda and this pig. Packet is ideal size for stocking fillers.

Some great ideas here, I've ordered one of those wooden villages for my littlest now.
I'm also getting a pack of glow sticks each from the pound shop. Last year they got a box of old fashioned bangers, they went down really well. Always do Christmas socks and pants and a toothbrush (usually a musical or light up one).

Oh and punch balloons, those jump up toys that you stick down then they pop up, bouncy balls etc. Yellow moon is good for that kind of thing.
