Any suggestions for cracker fillers?

Me and DS (almost 3) are making crackers for each family member this year as part of their gifts, but struggling to think up ideas to go in them...

Mini nail varnish, lip balms, mini bottles of liquoirs,

Do you have a budget in mind OP? And what ages are the recipients

Thanks all, great ideas here!

Budget: no more than £5 per person

Ages: only 1 child (DS - thinking a thomas blind bag maybe) - rest are adults ranging from 22-83

I used this site one year

www.houseofcrackers.co.uk/crackers/crackergifts/

Hope it helps you

Some other ideas
Key rings
Head phones
the Pound shop has some mini screwdriver kits and torches (actually very useful mini screwdrivers around the house)
small novelty postits
tube of glitter glue
hair accessories

Here's another site - even if you don't use them they might be good for inspiration:

In the last few years I've done lip balm, handcream, whisky miniature, fire striker and (my favourite) a viking arrow head.

Last year I bought the M&S beauty advent calendar (the one you get for £30 if you spend a certain amount but is worth over £100).

I basically raided the contents for the crackers and kept everything left over for myself.

It worked out a relatively cheap way to get some really lovely presents without braking the bank.
