Stocking fillers for adults please

(16 Posts)

After years spending money on unwanted gifts I have at last come to an agreement with my siblings that we will spend no more than £10 on each other. For the last couple of years I've done them each a stocking on top of their main present and they have asked for the stocking again if I can bring it in for £10.
So far: choc coins, pate or olives, a Satsuma, a little torch. (still £5 to spend) I'd like to add a toy or game, maybe a book, possibly a beer or miniature if I can source fun inexpensive stuff for the rest.
Any ideas please??

Nobody wants silly socks though do they.
Pound lands gave lots of stuff

Toberlone!
Puzzle book/magazine.

Think you will be pushingnig yo include alcohol.

Anything book wise if you wander round somewhere like the works?

Probably over budget, but ladies stocking here always include an amaryllis bulb. Sometimes in the supermarkets you find crocus bulbs in little glass jars which might come in within the budget?

Home bargains are doing cute glass drinking jars with straw and mini drink bottle for £3. B&m similar.

Sorry, should have said 4 male all 40s. Just ordered coffee bags for BIL who cannot function without a morning coffee and will not have instant: we went to a holiday cottage for the weekend with them and there wasn't even a cafetiere....it was tragic!

These bike bottle opener keyrings are quite funky

3 minute miracle sachets for women. Or whatever “sample/travel” size things take your fancy at Boots.

Just noticed all men - Nivea always do a travel size set for men at Christmas. Buy one of these and divvy up.

Search up True Utility on Amazon. It’s key ring stuff. The cash stash one is great - I have £20 in mine. There is a comedy fake £20 in it to give you the idea.

You can get funny top trumps type cards suitable for adults. Tesco has lynx bodywash on offer for £1. Helps fill the stocking! Willis have lots of man friendly bits and bobs that teen DS liked - as did my friends 54 yo dh!
