I need stocking filler ideas for DH which MUST be:
- NOT food or drink related
- small in size
- cheap (preferably under £5)

I already have a new camelbak and book which will take up quite a bit of space hence the need for small items.

Planning on getting:
- a nice bookmark
- a loose change dish (struggling with this - don't want ceramic, would prefer wooden or leather/fake leather but struggling to find something cheap and small enough)
- a men's folding shopping bag for him to keep in his car. (Have no idea if this exists)

I've got my dad a magnetic wristband to hold screws/screw driver bits etc whilst he's doing DIY. It was about £6 from Amazon.

This is 6.50nas trial size but might be nice and soothing if his skin is irritated with the radiotherapy. I also recommend reposemwhich is aromatherapy cream from templemspa and settles skin after irritation.

Also a molton brown mini or loccitane

Loving all these chocolate orange substitute ideas! I feel like I could fill the stocking with small round things now!

What a wonderful thread. The mumsnet ladies have come up with some great ideas — which I’m totally stealing—

If your DH likes superheroes, I was in Menkind earlier today and they had a little torch that instead of a normal light it projected the bat signal smile It had a clip that could attach to a keyring etc.

How about a magniband, it is a band that goes around your phone and is a magnifying lens for camera, you can get it on Amazon for around £5 in different colours

This orange shaped pill box is available on amazon...

Otherwise maybe an orange stress ball or a pair of orange socks rolled into a ball?

Sorry he's been unwell, I really hope he's getting better every day.
