Looking for inspiration for good stocking fillers for a 7 year old boy. I already have some top trump type card sets and a couple of books but am struggling for ideas now!

So far all I've got is a comic outline book with some new pens

suneetime Sat 30-Sep-17 15:48:09

How about
Expandable flannel
Choc coins
Character Bubble bath
Fancy pens, rubbers etc.

Most of these you can get with all sorts of characters so can buy to suit what he's into

Wilko do a great cheap novelty stationary section. Animal notepad, pens sect for under 50p

Choc coins
Tube of planet bouncy balls
Pokemon tattoos
Mini Lightsaber bubbles
Christmas joke book
Rubber duck
Wind up toy for racing
Glow in the dark stars
Lego minifigure bag
Keyring for his bookbag

Grumpbum where did you get that?

suneetime will look for some festive socks

AllTheWittyNamesAreGone Wilkos sounds like a goldmine, the bouncy balls and Pokemon tattoos sound ideal, and he would love the Christmas joke book

Thanks all!

I was on stocking-fillers uk yesterday and ordered loads of daft stocking fillers from my grandchildren.

One of them was Muscle Soap for my 8 year old grandson.

Following for ideas!
I will probably put in a copy of the beano as well.

Is he into Lego? Getting DS a Lego man soap from Amazon and some Lego shaped crayons on eBay x

Last year I bought my 8 year old a tape measure keyring I picked up whilst queuing in Wickes. It won Christmas, and she uses it all the time. It was just a last minute extra, cost no more than £2.

suneetime Sat 30-Sep-17 17:21:18

Cryhavoc I love that idea. Have just ordered one from Amazon for £1.80!

If you have Hawkins Bazaar near you OP they are always great for small gifts.
Over the years my boys have loved Pin Art, cinema style popcorn boxes, snaps..just so much stuff.
Mine adore tat though, way more than big things.

Fake poo or other joke stuff

BikeRunSki Sun 08-Oct-17 12:11:01

Star Wars (or other character) socks
Initial mug
Novelty bubble bath
Mini Fig
Key ring
Microwave popcorn and popcorn box
4 colour biros
I got some Minions “Fart Gun” key rings in B&M recently for stockings.

Butterymuffin Sun 08-Oct-17 12:25:11

If you have a Flying Tiger near you they are also great for this sort of thing.

AshleyAsparagus Sun 08-Oct-17 14:47:59

Some great ideas here! Can anyone suggest anything minecrafty for stocking?

WeeMadArthur Mon 09-Oct-17 11:34:13

I got a nice set of origami boats from M&S, ten in the pack for only £2!

WeeMadArthur Mon 09-Oct-17 11:35:00

Waiting for Hawkins Bazaar to open up soon, they normally appear in the run up to Christmas.

I got DD a Minecraft plush toy in Tesco recently. I know I've seen various Minecraft figures in places like the Art and Hobby Shop (where you would find Lego characters etc) or a specialist bookshop or good magazine shop (that does lots of different types of magazines) might have something.

I found a mini slinky in the National Art Gallery last week (Ireland but decent science type places should have similar).

Would Lego or Disney or somewhere do something like a "magic flannel" for Minecraft, or another favourite character? The kind that are scrunched up tight and expand when put in water?

A festive bath bomb (Lush do fun ones) or a travel size of his favourite shower gel or something like that?

Things DD has liked in her stocking at that sort of age included:

Wooden spinning top
Cards for soccer (Match Attax?) as she was into those
Nice colouring pencils and fun rubbers
A "make your own picture" with a wizards theme (you transfer rub various things onto the background - it wasn't Harry Potter but was a Hallowe'en thing with a wizard theme that I picked up)
Marbles - different colours and sizes
Pack of cards (we love card games)
Bag of dice (we're always losing them so spares are handy)
Mini cars and trucks - Matchbox, Tonka, etc
Mini Lego figures and sets

There's always at least 1 book, and I think we started a second most years at about 7 - a reading book (fiction) and a non-fiction (Minecraft tricks, lego ideas, sailing training, a particular historical period, something of interest to her)

Cosy socks are always a hit - fluffy ones to wear indoors. But regular socks are good too in fun colours/patterns/favourite characters. Or really good hiking socks for cold days.

I got my DS a soft toy creeper last year which he loved.
Other ideas...
Spy pen
Pencil case
Yo yo
Fidget spinner/cube/pad
Novelty ice cube tray
Soap on a rope
Bath bomb
Hair gel
Hat and gloves
If he's into football, goalie gloves/shin pads/football socks
Transformer or other toy
Card game like UNO
Key ring
