The DSs (6 and 3) usually get things like:

- magic flannel
- small lego set
- key ring
- torch
- choc coins
- sticker book (I always regret this, as they are shit at peeling the stickers off so i have to help, but I think I just have stickerlarly incompetent children)
- satsuma
- pens/pencils/playdough/something crafty
- wooden ostheimer animal

DH and I generally do little stockings instead of big presents as we are perpetually broke and no one else gives us presents so it's nice to have something to open. I have bought for him in the past:

- whoopee cushion
- kitchen knife
- camping bottle opener
- frisbee
- new pens
- cooking utensils (he likes cooking)
- scratch card
- alcohol
- new hat/gloves
- cookery book
- moisturiser
- tickets to do things with the DC as he looks after them most weekends while I work so it's nice to have something treaty to do.

Mini cereal (great source of excitement for DC).
Comic with maximum amount of plastic freebies on front - this can be invaluable.
Bubble wand?
Helium balloon tied to it if you can obtain and hide it

DH:
Is getting giant gherkins (he loves them...)
Little trial pack of coffee
- and I'd better look at some other posts actually.

All 3 adults in our house are getting a miniature (5cl) Glenfiddich or Baileys in their stocking. To drink at 5am while watching the DC tear into theirs (stockings, not alcohol). Also some fancy chocs.

Marking place! DD age 2 is getting her first stocking this year and I'm stuck for ideas, especially as she only recently had a birthday.

So far I like the sound of:

- Magazine with free tat toys
- Satsuma
- Mini cereal
- Something arty/crafty
- Puzzle

Off to google magic flannel, never heard of that!
