Last minute stocking ideas for adult children

(13 Posts)

Dds are 20 and 18. We don't go mad at Christmas and I'll know they will be happy with what they get, but I'd like to get a few more 'bits' for their stockings. Any ideas for last minute, easy to find and cheap stuff that isn't sweets/chocolate?

So far I've thought of:
hair spray
body spray
make up remover and cotton wool

Dry shampoo
Nail polish
Bottle of wine
Fluffy socks
Face/hair masks

Nail varnish
Lip balm
Face wash

Fluffy socks and dry shampoo would both go down v well. Thank you. smile

Socks and pants already sorted.

I could do with some suggestions too, for a 22 year old DS.

Got him some clothes and a new computer keyboard so far. Might take him to the Dr Marten shop this week and convince him to get some new boots if I can.

How about a Boots voucher?

Don't want to do vouchers - have done their main presents; this is just a few things to open from 'Santa' as they do still really like their stockings. grin

Libi - bow ties and braces v popular with the young chaps around here at the moment! DM shop also had some really nice shirts in.

Nicky James have bags, purses and make up/toiletries bags all reduced to under £10 and brilliant quality - we've just got some for DH's god daughters.

Note cards, pens, highlighters
Card games eg 'sussed'.

A towel thingy to wrap around wet hair this one
Pack of nice pocket tissues
Tape measure (yes a bit male but if they are reaching the age to be thinking about leaving home oh so useful)
