Already got chocolate oranges and will add more sweets. Deodorant for DS1 and juggling balls for DS2. Small book each. Did a magazine last year but don’t think they got read. Fifa points card for DS1 again. Any other ideas very welcome. Thanks

What about a multi tool penknife? I got one for my friend's son's fifteenth birthday and he was thrilled with it.

Lush bath bombs. Boys love them

LesLavandes Thu 07-Dec-17 10:48:02

Cheap headphones, Christmas socks, selection box, book of jokes

Lush also do fidget spinner bubble things.

Mine are pretty much toiletries, stationery, socks and pants. Need to include some fun stuff but cba with shitty-landfill-tat. So i am struggling a bit...

Boxers/knickers, house socks. I always find DD easy - lip gloss, nail varnish, hair ties etc. I struggle more with the boys for stocking fillers.

Stationery is always good and pants/socks/football socks/shin pads etc.

where do you get "boy" stationery?

haba Thu 07-Dec-17 12:26:13

Muji is good (they have squared and graph and isometric paper notebooks), all neutral.
Paperchase often have a "boys" range (as much as it pains me to use boy/girl for these things)
Sainsburys, rymans, all have good multicoloured stuff
Star wars pens etc are all over the place atm
Fimo comes in nice packs as a crafty gift

haba Thu 07-Dec-17 12:27:52

My 9yo also likes moccasin slippers (from H&M) and gloves (we go through many, many pairs)

SnowBallsAreHere Thu 07-Dec-17 12:29:20

That plastic stuff that fixes anything, kind of like fimo for iPhone cables
Lego compatable tape (from eBay)
Dictator top trumps
Xbox live codes

Marking place

Also was thinking of putting some nerf type bullets in, has anyone bought any off eBay sellers before?
Would pay for the proper ones but the dog chews them so happy to get the copies as long as they actually fit the nerf guns

SnowBallsAreHere Thu 07-Dec-17 14:31:38

I’ve got a big pack of nerf compatable things from Asda. I think it was £5 or £6 for 90ish.

Mine are a little older and we've done some of the things listed by PPs.

This year although it is mainly foodstuff, tubes of pringles, bags of popcorn, hot chocolate sachets, microwave mugcake sachets, chocolate and sweets and cans of coke etc. I have also got:

Kurkurin fidget things
keyboard hoovers
Little clip cable management things
posters
Pens with favourite band logo
SOme guitar picks
keychain Money minders (£1 amazon)
some hand exerciser things
Mouse mat

Oh wow some fantastic ideas, love the Pringles and the Dictator top trumps for DS1. He rarely ventures out of the den so anything to engage him with the rest of family. This has really helped me....yesterday we mistakenly went to Asda to buy a couple of cards and DS2 saw a few Nintendo Switch boxes on the bottom shelf and suddenly decided he did want one. I’ve not actually bought a main present yet but I don’t want to get another games system. My heart sank and suddenly all the magic of Christmas disappeared. However this list has made me smile and got me back in the spirit. Thank you

IOwn20PurpleKnickers Thu 07-Dec-17 23:07:37

I got this through on my email with all sorts of ideas, which I'm slowly sifting through. Some good ones.

IOwn20PurpleKnickers Thu 07-Dec-17 23:11:52

OMG where do you get a voice changer from Maroon?
