(7 Posts)

I won a body shop advent calendar last year which is lovely but would like to use it this year to put in wee treats for my teens - boy and girl. Any ideas? Have thought of chocolate, sweets, mini bottles of booze etc - anything more exciting? I have a feeling it might be a bit of a different Christmas this year so easy ways to make it better are welcome!

I usually put things like
Touchscreen gloves
Can of pop
Mini pringles
Headphones (cheap in ear ones)
Nail varnish, lip balm
Deodorant

Brilliant thank you. Also thought of caramel coffee flavouring and Costa gift cards. Hard as they are such similar things to stocking fillers!

USB charger cables for whatever phone they have (extra long, light up, funky colours etc)
Random foreign sweets or chocolate (DSS had a thing for Japanese sweets as a teen)
Miracle Berry tablets (turn sour foods sweet)
Novelty Post It notes, origami etc
Touch screen gloves
Mobile phone rescue bags (in case you drop them in water)
