Ds is getting an Xbox one for Xmas, a few books and skylanders. I need to get him some stocking fillers. I’m not going over the top this year.

Dd is getting a phone, speakers, case, books and some other bits, also need to get her some stocking fillers.

Any ideas?

I feel awful for not buying them a lot, but they have expensive things this year. Last year I went mad and they didn’t touch most of it. 😔

Also ideas for 15 month old!

Thanks xx

Stuff they need but a nicer or more expensive quality, so they are more special:
fancy socks/pants
character soap
chocolate
pens/pencils/stationery
earbuds
fingerling (possibly as a joke gift?!)

I'd say stuff that'd get used, so it doesn't just hang around the house. A friend got her 14yo ds led fingerlights one year and he had them for about 3 years (until they all died) as he'd put them on and play his guitar in the dark.

For a 15mo stacking cups? Bath toys, ikea wooden train (can wrap bits separately).

Erm, since when were a phone and and Xbox 'not much'?! Get them some sweets, pens and pants and that's ample.

Thank you both!

I think it’s a lot, but the pile doesn’t look much. And you know society and Facebook makes you feel crap if there isn’t at least 100 presents each 😒😂

Can you go somewhere like primark/Claire's accessories/home bargains type shops where you can get some decent stuff cheaper, and buy a few things they need anyway to wrap up (underwear, toothbrush, stationery etc) so it looks like they've got more. Some online shops like flamingo gifts, campus gifts, dot com gift shop have cheap little bits, especially in their sale section. For the 15 months old, I'd get very little. Few toys (also had some really nice wooden stuff in recently

Sorry pressed too soon hmm, so a big wooden toy (kitchen/dolls house/garage) with accessories to go, and then a few other bits (doll/cars/playdoh/crafts/jigsaws/musical instruments)

Maybe a family game for the eldest to share & play with the grown ups when the little one is in bed
