Bubble bath.

Tube of play doh
Tube of little animals
Bath bomb
Paint and brushes
Card game like snap


Camomila · 03/12/2019 12:43

Thats lots already, but you could add a bath bomb if you wanted? DS really wants one ever since he saw the episode of 'Do you know?' where Maddie visits a bath bomb factory. Lush have blue lavender kids one shaped like robots.

Don't forget the Satsumas!

Cannot second the colouring pens suggestion more! New pencil case for school?


Stockingfiller1 · 03/12/2019 12:47

I can’t get bath bombs or bath products (I should have put that in OP) as he has eczema 😭

DVD to distract them from 4am-6amon Christmas morning.
New t shirt to persuade them to get dressed at some point.


EerieSilence · 03/12/2019 12:47

They have Tamagochi in Primark in the novelty section.


Stockingfiller1 · 03/12/2019 12:48

No slime 🙈🤣

Lots more chocolate
Gel pens


Stockingfiller1 · 03/12/2019 12:53

I have colours as part of his main gift 😫
He got a new toothbrush about a month ago
He has two water bottles so no need for another...
I saw the tamagotchi @EerieSilence!! But hesitated as I didn’t know if he would “get it” 🙈
Think I may have to leave it... I don’t like getting stuff for the sake of it but I wanted something funny or different.
Might see if I can find a whoopee cushion?? 😂 (or do I want to spend Xmas day listening to that??!!)

How big is the stocking? In our house the stockings are generally sweets based with undies, socks, a tangerine, gold coins, one or two small toys and maybe some pens or other small trinket that you know they like.
Our stockings are the very standard sized 18" ones (maybe less) and you can't get a lot in them, in reality!
However, I know some people make it the Big Present and have enormous ones that take some filling 😬


lyingwanker · 03/12/2019 12:56

I've got toy vehicles, sweets, a mini voice changer megaphone, character socks, stickers & pens so far


Stockingfiller1 · 03/12/2019 12:57

@Fucck It’s actually a small Santa sack so not technically a stocking (but we call it that) I’m a bit ocd and couldn’t stand the idea of fitting all the necessary stuff in the stocking (like books) so a sack seemed more useful

OP posts:

Stockingfiller1 · 03/12/2019 12:58

Ooooh @lyingwanker where did you get the voice changer??

OP posts:

TooMuchSun12 · 03/12/2019 12:58

Little torch?


DefConOne · 03/12/2019 12:58

Chocolate selection pack. I always include one of the smaller items from the wish list. Otherwise looks like you have plenty.


badguyduh · 03/12/2019 12:59

Sugar mouse (obv worse than class A drugs)
Little torch
Stickers/ temp tattoos
Wind up toy
Character flannel
I got mine bits for his train track or matchbox car (charity shops have loads)
Mini kaleidoscope

Garden centres with toy sections are great for this stuff!


Stockingfiller1 · 03/12/2019 13:00

@TooMuchSun12 good idea but alas...he is the boy who has everything 🤣 he has a head torch from his birthday that he adores!!

Stockingfiller1 · 03/12/2019 13:01

@badguyduh...tattoos!!! Yes!! Thank you!

@Stockingfiller1 just from primark for £6. It was near the tamagotchi things in my store


CloudyVanilla · 03/12/2019 13:05

I was actually impressed when I went to primark to grab something yesterday, they had really cute things like novelty tooth brush holders for a couple of quid that are actually useful as well as nice little presents.

Also those impulse collectable toy things like Hatchimal eggs? My 4 year old DD loves those - they are kind of expensive though.


Mummy2one2016 · 03/12/2019 13:05

My little one is the same age, we have a new cutlery set with his favourite characters on, socks, pants, some stamper sets from the works a pezz from primark.


bookwormnerd · 03/12/2019 13:08

Mashams are a huge hit in our house (they have loads of different characters) my little boy likes the playmobil people, colouring books (colour magic ones go down well) washamals which are little animal figures they can colour and wash to do again, playdoh, chocolate coins, spinning wands that light up, bath toys and cars
