Stocking for DM

Just wanted some ideas and to know if this is a really crap idea.

DM looks after DD one day a week, plus she's had her overnight twice and looks after her the odd hour whilst I'm at the dentist. Myself and DP wanted to get her a gift to say thanks for all of this. We don't spend loads at Christmas as we have many to buy for so budget is £120.

DM always did stockings for me and DBro and always used to say she loved them and wish she had one so was thinking I could do her a nice stocking, is this a rubbish gift?

If not, any ideas on nice things that could go in it?

List so far is:
Bare Minerals Lipstick
Cashmere socks

She hates candles or anything personalised.

I think its a lovely idea. What kind of thing did you get her last year?

I would love a stocking
This is what I would have put in one
Notebook and pen
Bed socks
Chocolate truffles
Novelty/joke shop item like chattering false teeth or a whopee cushion
Hand cream
Sudoku puzzle book
DVD of a film I missed at the cinema but wanted to see

Thanks everyone.

I honestly can't remember what I go her last year blush, not a clue, she was away over Christmas so we exchanged early.

She likes puzzle books so i'll do one of those.
Maybe a sweary pen as she loves my "fuck off I'm busy one"

She's one that likes "posh" brands but wouldn't actually spend her own money on it so might have a little look around for nice hand cream etc.

For my mum's stocking I've got her a funny wooden carved face which is actually a stand for her reading glasses, a power bank and extra long charging cable, a few nice chocs, a small torch for her keyring... Will also be buying her some more of her favourite pants to put in, and some other bits. She's not remotely in to smellies or twee things, so I have to think outside the box!

My lovely friend does me a stocking every Christmas! I get things like:

Nice bodywash/shower gel
A paperback I've said I'd like to read
Luxury chocolate
A framed pic of the two of us (usually a selfie printed off her phone)
Tiny bottle of Prosecco
Nice pen
Ticket/voucher for entry to somewhere.
