Theres probably a thread about it already but I cant find it!
Me and dh have decided we're doing each other a stocking with a budget of £30/£40 bit im completely stuck as to what to put in it!

Im so easy to buy for, fill it with soap and glory bits and a chocolate orange! So far ive got him some novelty socks and managed to get his favourite aftershave on offer but no idea what else...HELP!!!

He likes computer games, star wars, his beard...

Have you tried men kind or a shop similar they usually have great stocking fillers and lots targeted around what your dh already likes.

Key ring
Carton of Chocs
Small miniature bottle of whiskey
Box of Pringles lol

It's hard to but for DH's!

A book
Book token
cinema voucher?

Buy - not 'but'

Also Starbucks/costa etc do vouchers in small amounts so he could keep them for emergency coffee fixes

I'm struggling too! My DH is so hard to buy for.

He hates getting jokey tat (as it just ends up in the bin) and he's not a fan of getting chocolates or sweets as he has nothing to show for it once it's been eaten <<eye roll>>.

This year I'm going to get him:
Socks that I know he'll wear. Probably some nice designer ones rather than Christmas socks - I love getting Christmas socks in my stocking, I personally think that it's not Christmas without Christmas socks but hey ho.
Some Lindt chocolates because he does love them.
A small photo frame with a picture of the DDs for his desk in the office.
And... I'm stumped for anything else.

Ooh i like the small framed photo idea Robin ; dh would like that in his new garden office. He's the same, no jokey tat and doesn't like chocolate confused so I've got dad socks, a book (charity shop buy but perfect condition), a posh notebook, his favourite peanut sweets bar, and I'll add a coffee shop voucher card and possibly a fun bar from lush (mmoulding soap). He doesn't really get stocking fillers so I've given him a guide: something fun, something edible, something practical/useful, and something luxury/pretty smile he said he's found it useful!

Get him some beard oil and a beard comb! Kent are a good classic brand for combs. I got my DP a Kent moustache comb and moustache wax a couple of years ago and he loved it grin

OnMyWhistle Sun 07-Dec-14 09:38:58

I have bought these for my bil - might be good OP if your husband likes his beard?

OnMyWhistle Sun 07-Dec-14 09:39:34

Ooh x post Felix - great minds!

hellokittehhhh Sun 07-Dec-14 09:49:32

These are all great suggestions Thank you! He doesn't do tat either so obviously don't want to waste money! Beard/moustache wax would be good as he's started 'poirot-ing' his moustachehmm

Millie3030 Sun 07-Dec-14 09:58:13

Designer boxers TKMAxx do them for £9
Cleaner fluid for his electric razor -(he actually like this gift and gets it every year)
Might do a keyring with picture is DS and him in.
A homemade 'naughty night in' voucher
Multitool screwdriver thing from tesco

Tesco have 3 for 2 on little tool stocking filler type things at the moment, I actually bought him a new hacksaw and an electrical screwdriver too, to put under the tree.

Star Wars lego key ring and torch - there are lots of different characters.

I bought one off amazon which was a great success.

BrieAndChilli Sun 07-Dec-14 10:01:15

I have got DH some Star Wars key fobs from sainsburys.
Mini bottle of whiskey
Emergency phone charger
Xmas socks
Choc orange
Mini sports towel

So far I have got a mimi photobook of our summer holiday, Dr Who socks, USB coffee cup warmer, new headphones, chocolate brussels sprouts, wine gums, christmas hankies, shaving gel, lush hot toddy shower gel - am going to look for a whisky or rum miniature and a toblerone to finish it off.

The beard and moustache stuff on NOTHS is a bit pricey for what it is.


They carry all the big American/Australian brands as well as the well loved UK ones.

For moustache wax if he's Poirot'ing you need a strong hold so Capt. Fawcetts or the Bearded Bastard prob best hold.

Nice boxer shorts
Walnut whirls
Chocolate orange

Just been on another thread and beard oil seems a popular choice for beardy blokes. Going to get some for my OH too.
