I'm doing this for a friends children- I don't have DC and I do not know the children terribly well- ideas so far include

Chocolate, nice shower gel or spray, and american snack, socks, a cooking gadget for the 18 year old as he is chef training - what else? the 14 year old is really stumping me!

Budget is roughly £30- 40 per child

Sounds great so far!
A winter hat or a velcro wallet (Nike?). Small tub pringles?
Small book? Mug in suitable theme? Sports gym bag (small drawstring type)? Powerbank for mobile phone?

My 15yo’s stocking includes a giant gobstopper, a fidget pen, a Lamborghini usb stick, chocolate, sweets, 100 movies scratch off poster, exercise dice.
In the past he’s had double dare jellybeans, fidget toys, a stress ball, small aftershave and gaming socks

Some herbs and spices for the 18 year old trainee chef? He might like to practice some things at home.

Voucher for Starbucks, Costa, cinema etc. (Or something else that interests teen boys... Game credit?)
Bottle of beer for eldest
One of those massive tubes of Pringles, Jaffa cakes etc
Bike lights if they cycle to school/training
