soon to be dh, so would like something with husband on as we get married on 20th dec. he likes top gear, gaming and food

Orange or satsuma is a traditional stocking filler - Terrys Chocolate orange is a suitable contemporary alternative!

Nuts - can go for a pack of dry roasted, or some fancy gourmet version as wished.

A game - something silly. Tesco have a good range of acceptable candidates.

Something practical - facecloth, toothbrush, pack of tissues

A tacky Christmas decoration

[http://www.thespicery.com the spicery] send you spice boxes to make various dishes out of.

A top gear magazine subscription? Or a day racing somewhere?

Depends on which console he plays on for games? Gaming mag subscription?

DH is getting a satsuma and chocolate coins, like the DCs, then a bag of posh coffee, paper plane origami kit and a pork pie dolly

he doesnt eat curry, or read magazines or drink coffee. he likes tea but only pg tips. isnt very adventurous with food

Ohhh....you said he likes food so what kind of food does he like?

And what gaming system does he have?

Do people really put a toothbrush in a stocking? I have a drawer full of them and can't imagine my (adult) children's faces if I gave them one for Christmas.

he likes cake and chocolate and meat. and yes, people really do put toothbrushes in stockings. i have got novelty ones for the children this year, a duck, a parrot and a bear for the younger ones

cake slice club?

Noideatobehad Wed 18-Nov-15 20:26:50

very good, but for that price i would rather make him a cake every bloody week. £50 for a 2 month sub with one slice of cake every week shock

I can understand novelty toothbrushes, just not ordinary ones.

Qwerkity.com has some fabulous ideas. I'm eyeing up the gps key finder

Ok just had a look in my present drawer.
DH is getting;
Wallet ninja (wilko £5)
1982 what car magazine featuring his first car (thanks eBay!)
Magnetic wrist band (idea being it holds nails whilst doing DIY)
Tin of magnetic balls (man kind)
Terry's chocolate orange
Plus some little game thing they I've not bought or found yet!

How lovely, what about a special Xmas Ornament, maybe with the year on, can add to the collection each year.

Puzzles are great too, You know those wooden block things, that you fiddle with forever and seem impossible to get out. Or the metal type ones, like rings and loops.
