she claims to still believe....

I've got a few bits but all very practical, shampoo, shower gel, make up brushes, nail clippers etc....

Does anyone have any ideas of things to go in? Fun stuff??

I put hot chocolate powder, mini marshmallows and a can of squirty cream in the dses' stockings (I wrap the squirty cream and hide it in the salad drawer in the fridge - they never look there grin).

How about some craft stuff - pens, pencils, beads?

A little cuddly toy, maybe - Tesco have little beany toy dogs and cats for not very much.

Is she into crafts? The small consumable bits are very useful to get a few different things - ribbons, nice pencils/markers, rhinestones, nice buttons, different coloured Hama beads etc.

I got DD a tub of silly putty stuff in neon yellow that I think she'll enjoy.

Some small jewellery bits? Or makeup items?

Is she into sports? Need an extra hockey ball (maybe a coloured one) or some mad funky socks or something like that?

We always (even still) get at least 1 book - always a fiction book, sometimes a factual book as well, maybe an annual or Christmas special edition of a favourite magazine etc.

Does she collect any cards/stickers/moshis/Lego people etc? A pack of whatever she is into.

We also always have sweets and fruit in the stocking as well, and I know lots of others who put the portion packs of cereal in there - obviously something that Mum would NEVER allow DCs to eat!

I would also never allow DD to get those awful aliens in a plastic container surrounded by slime - Santa brought 1 to DD 2 years ago, and a baby one arrived last year! Dreadful yokes (I really am not a fan anyway, but play up everytime she asks in the toyshop!).

I will toddle off and see if I can cull some ideas from my monster list (compiled from a US forum a few years ago - where they do stockings even for adults!) and come back in a while....

Thank you, some great ideas.

Now I just need to buy them...

Biddy - that is the most amazing list of stocking fillers!

SDTG - As I said above, it comes from a few different lists of posters on an American Christmas forum, culled one season a few years ago, and I tried a while back to cull it again to remove duplicates. I copied this version from what I posted on a more teenagers/adults thread recently, so its not so much games and jokes but other small items that older folks may enjoy rather than young DCs.

I'd have loved for one of those Ladies to make me a stocking one year! fgrin
