Any lovely ideas? For children aged 1-4yrs? I have already brought them a book each, so just wanted something to accompany it, not chocolate though unfortunately sad thank you!

Bubble bath, stickers, a torch, socks, crayons, hot wheels car. I'm sure there's loads more but that's all of the top of my head.

So far I have bath foam, bath crayons, animals for the bath, tractor stickers, mini digger, zoo in a tin and a sparkly tractor beaker. Sensing a theme??

Go to Poundland - stickers, crayons, little toys etc. Perfect for stocking fillers.

I was thinking pound land/tiger! I don't want to buy trash but equally there are 7 of them to get gifts for and I'm on a budget!

Obviously not all of these, it's just my ideas list!

Wilko have some great little stocking fillers at good prices. I picked up stuff for my toddler like a wooden necklace and bracelet, individual small instruments and a toy plastic zebra as she loves zebras, all for around £1/£1.50 each.

Fueledwithfairydustandgin Fri 06-Nov-15 16:20:13

Yes I got lots from wilko

ButtonMoon88 Fri 06-Nov-15 16:24:40

Ahh Wilko, I hadn't even thought of going there! Thank you fgrin

My one year old has Peter Rabbit crayons, a wooden dumper truck/puzzle, a pig shaped night light and cat shaped castanets. I've yet to make the stocking but that's another story!

My DD will be 13 months and in her stocking she has....

A book
Squirty bath toys
Tube of whitr buttons
Chocolate coins
Nursery rhyme cd
Elephant Glove puppet
Elephant pull along toy
Elephant maraca.

Would agree wilko are brilliant for stocking fillers for the toddlers

Just place marking because I think these ideas are brilliant! So glad to have found so many ideas. Thank you ladies oh my god I need to start sorting out Christmas

Tiger is fantastic for stocking fillers! I get loads of mine there. DD will be just 3 at Christmas and so far I have:

- small wooden castanets
- small wooden kaleidoscope
- Tiger bubble mix - fab value at 2 for a pound!
- fluffy socks
- mini penguin biscuits from M&S, Polar Bear and Penguin range
- white choc coins from Sainsbury's, 70p on a 3 for 2 offer
- colour changing bath ducks, Tiger
- Carousel wooden maraca, 30p in the sale box in Tesco!
- finger puppets, IKEA
- magic wand, Tiger
- glitter bouncy ball
- sachet of fizzing bath crackles (£1 in Boots)
- Hair slides and ties, Tiger

I'll also get a CBeebies magazine closer to Christmas, and she'll get a satsuma and an apple. I'm also looking out for a mini cuddly toy for her too.

Last year age 2 she got:

- light up bath ducks, Tiger
- Munchkin bath bugs, Boots
- wooden robot, Tiger
- large choc coin
- large red bouncy ball
- Ikea Bjorn Bear soft toy (£1!)
- Abney and Teal CBeebies magazine
- Tiger bubble mix
- Baby Organix jelly fruit snacks
- Hair clips

Aged 1 she had new bibs (not impressed by those!), a big choc coin, a bath duck, and a few other bits, but was most keen on the shiny paper....

Bubble wrap always goes down well here grin

These are great ideas! I hate the plastic tat element of lots of stocking fillers, and loads of these ideas are fab.

I tend to buy a fair bit of practical stuff - bubble bath (a nicer kind than DD usually gets, but not expensive), socks, pants, vests, mittens, toothbrush/toothpaste (character or fancy ones), as well as toys and some sweeties.

Thank you for all your fantastic ideas!

Someone sent a link to some great beakers, so I brought those, and I also brought some soft toys, stickers, colouring in books and placemats, came to about £13! fgrin

Wilko has good cheap wooden musical toys, like mouth organs, recorders ( or they did when last there) I also got some hexbugs in a tube...some furry things that move from science museum, some jumping beans, a wind up minion toy. Some chocolate coins, satsuma, some arty googly eyes and foam stamps, probably some bath bubble stuff...

someone mentioned sugared mice, will probably try and track down some of those too.
