I don't often do a stocking for DS (10) and last year he commented he'd have loved one... I have no idea what to put in. Don't want to put useless tat in it.

Lego minifigure and chocolate coins I have thought of. What else? Ideas please! [santa]

I was thinking of getting a lush fun bar for my dds stocking but
have no idea whether they are any good, anyone had one?

So far, I have only got a moustache pencil and 3d drawing paper, need to get sorted

Prize, mine love them.
We've had all the colours and this year I've bought ds a penguin one, the gold sparkly one for one ds and the pink one for the other.
I'd just say to break off what you want them to use, though it can all e wrapped back up even if it gets wet.

Stick on moustaches

mini microscope
fart putty
motorbike badge
chocolate coins
tube of sweets

I don't like tat either but tbh it's ds' favourite part of Christmas so I try to get disposable tat as a compromise. DS is a bit younger but I don't think a 9/10 year old would be too old for anything listed there, the ones I know wouldn't be anyway.
