Hi, I'm doing my mum a stocking this year (Have never had them before.) and so far I have some nail varnish, Yankee Candle votives, a small scent spray in them and I can't think of anything else bar a magazine! She is 65 and not very mobile. She hates cooking, reads but doesn't have any interests apart from that. I wonder if you have any ideas at all?

Sorry, just to add, she has chocolate in there too.

How about some cozy, soft bedsocks? There are some lovely ones around. I've got a tiny bag of indoor plant bulbs from M&S.I'm also putting in some little magnetised photo frames with photos of DG and will then top it up with a nougat bar.

Slipper socks? Nice stationery? Mini smellies?
An orange and some nuts(for some reason I always had these in my stocking as a childgrin)

Does she drink? A small bottle of wine.
A diary and pen.
sachets of hot chocolate or a little box of nice tea
Lip balm
Nice tissues or hankies.
