Stocking for my 25 year old sister?

I'd like to put together a stocking for my sister this year - she will love it I know so I want to make it good! She's typically girly but does like gadgets, she drinks wine and loves chocolate. So far I've got unicorn socks, a mini jar of Nutella and a mini bottle of prosecco, but a few more ideas would be great, I expect there's some things I haven't thought of that would go down well!

I do a stocking for my sister. I tend to include include travel sizes/free samples of nice toiletries, a Lush bath bomb, a novelty Christmas packet of tissues, a lottery scratch card, a tube of fizzy vitamins, a bage/hair lip/small item of jewellery, and a tube of lip balm. I get a pair of nice socks, and use one as the stocking and include the other one inside. There are also usually a couple of nice things to eat.

Oh, and a pen or pencil.

Sometimes a small notebook.

Nail varnish?

Does she cook? We sometimes get a food related gadget from Lakeland or similar.

A handbag phone charger?

What is your budget?

Hot water bottle
Giant chocolate Santa (a good space filler if the stocking is big)
Wrist warmers (£2 from Amazon but they come from China so will take a month)
Lush bath bomb
Water bottle or travel cup
Lottery ticket

Dandelion I think I'm aiming for about £30 ish but we shall see! Some good ideas here, thanks - love the scratch card/lottery one, and handbag charger, she's forever complaining her phone battery is awful!

DMum used to get my sister and me a pair of nice knickers (until we both got boyfriends...then we got bedsocks!).

Hair bobbles - nice ones or simple ones - I'm always losing mine!
