Growing up I always had things like chocolate, sweets, socks etc in my stocking

DSD (almost 6) doesn't eat chocolate or sweets. We've got some paw patrol socks to stick in her stocking but we're stuck with what else to put in there.

What are you putting in / have you put in in the past?

Bubble bath
Balloon helicopter
Fun pens and pencils
Lip balm
Cheap jewellery - loads on eBay and amazon for less than £1

Anything that I normally say no too. Past favourites have been a can of fizzy drink, small pack of cereal, yoghurt covered fruit snacks, magazine.

Crafty bits, glittery pipe cleaners, stickers, tape, glue sticks.

I stopped buying colouring books as they lost interest after a couple of pages but printed out a few pictures or themed puzzles to keep the busy. Just roll up and tie with a bit of ribbon.

Audiobook CD.

My DD is 6.
There will be chocolate in there, and probably some fudge (homemade - I have to be careful to keep any e). In the past I have put in a gingerbread man, not sure if I will do that this year.

Nice, "grown up" colouring pens, and some tracing paper. A paperback book, a mini jigsaw, a glowstick torch, a small cuddly toy. A hair bow. I am also considering some Christmassy socks or tights. Next had good ones last year, but I haven't seen any I like this year.

OwlKiss Sat 11-Nov-17 18:29:02

I have to be careful to keep any extra fudge well hidden, by eating it myself as soon as I have made it

Wand and tiara

This year DD will be getting some knickers with pictures of the trolls on them. I normally buy plain knickers, but Santa brings ones with pictures on. There will also be a magic flannel (one of those expanding flannels),

ShiftyMcGifty Sat 11-Nov-17 18:56:53

Toys. Santa brings the toys in the stocking. The more expensive stuff under the tree Mummy and Daddy contribute toward. That's why some children get "more expensive" stuff under the tree than others.

We'll be travelling to Oz so I want things that are either small/pack flat or can be consumed there so I don't need to bring them home

6yo DS so far has:
Chocolate coins
WhizzPopBang magazine
Post its
A schleich animal
A sachet for mug cake
A book about a historical figure
Mini sewing kit
A magnet of his name
A little puzzle
An egg cup with his name

I'm still hoping to get him something nativity themed & some pencils, once I've figured out where to get some that have decent rubbers on the end. I'd also like to get him a bigger cup than the small IKEA ones we have & maybe a notebook... But DH keeps commenting that I've got them lots of things so I might have to be a bit sneaky...!

In our house, presents under the tree come from us, stocking contents from Santa. So things like a slinky, personalised pencils, a toy with a face of some description, harmonica, Jacobs ladder - all that kind of crap that could have been made by elves 😊

wendz86 Sun 12-Nov-17 07:13:16

Play dough
Bubble bath
Make your own hairbands kit
Polly pocket

FizzyWaterAndElderflower Sun 12-Nov-17 07:40:29

Right. I have to intervene. None of these stockings are right. It's not a stocking unless there's at least one satsuma (or mandarin, or similar) in it. Or memorably one year when mum had trouble finding stuff for my stocking: 5 satsumas. Also: Torch.

I will add though - plastic snow globe, one of those disks on strings that you pull at each end and it whizzes, kalaedoscope.
