Socks, shower gel, chocolate, a new tape measurer (he needs one), a magazine! He loves reading airliner world but won’t buy one so I always put one at the top of his stocking.

Lazy Man Pan.. not quite a stocking filler but if he likes cooking it could work!

mam0918 · 10/11/2021 15:16

I have got so far:
phone accessory
post-it note pad
vintage 80s pocket game
Squid game figurine
Stress ball
and lots of sweets

I think consumable items are good for stocking fillers as we all need to reduce the amount of tat we buy so favourite foods/sweets/drinks. My OH is getting into hot sauces so I'm going to look around for as many as I can find (TK Maxx is good for unusual sauces etc) and I'll prob get him a big bag or cup of fizzy cola bottles from the pic n mix as he loves those.

DH and I don't really do stockings (though I know he's drawn my name for the in-laws' stocking secret santa Grin), but if I was doing one, I would probably go for:

Bottle of beer
Penknife
Wallet Ninja
Sweets
Bar of chocolate
Bag of nuts
Can of Lynx
Socks
Coffee sachets
Coffee syrup

CoffeeChocolateWine · 10/11/2021 16:41

We don’t do stockings for each other but sometimes his gift will be lots of smaller gifts rather than a bigger gift. I would get…
A couple of books - he likes modern classics or autobiographies
Bottle of unusual ale
Fudge
Coffee beans or nice tea
Reusable coffee cup (I know most people have this already but he hasn’t!)
One of those memo blocks that reveal a kind of sculpture as you remove the sheets!
Poo pourri spray
Chocolate coated brazil nuts
Eco friendly toiletries
Tie pin or cuff links if needed
Cufflink box
Socks
Batteries
Gift card for local restaurant
Small cactus or succulent plant
Flower seeds
Football socks or something hobby related.

JunieSpoony · 10/11/2021 16:44

Mine is getting
Socks
Power bank
Beer
Chocolate
Book
Squash balls
Fancy coffee that he wouldn’t normally buy

WouldBeGood · 10/11/2021 16:46

Fancy ice cube trays for different ice for different cocktails
Plectrums
A non itchy scarf
Bourbon body wash
Cookbook

WouldBeGood · 10/11/2021 16:48

WhatonEarth1 · 10/11/2021 16:55

Curry kit
LED beanie
Car air freshener
Book
Cadbury pud
Chamois leather
Tiger balm

WakeUpLockie · 10/11/2021 16:57

I need ideas too! I try and avoid clutter so do a lot of edible or grooming things. Socks.

Voucher
Scratch card
Nice pen?
I’m at a loss really! DH loves all sports so maybe a golf ball? 😄

Defiantly41 · 10/11/2021 22:06

Shower gel
Deodorant
Socks
Non glossy lip balm (Kiehls)
Paul A Young salted caramels
Kiehls hand cream
Selection box
Designer underpants - Boss or Paul Smith
Good bottle of red wine
Bottle of port or Disaronno Velvet
Diptyque Feu de Bois candle

Incywinceyspider · 11/11/2021 18:08

A wallet ninja
Pepper grinder (weird but ours is crap and he loves cooking!)
Socks
Alcohol of some description
Chocolate of some description
Pocket diary

cowburp · 11/11/2021 18:09

I'm going to empty many many packets of jelly beans into it

BiscuitLover09876 · 11/11/2021 18:10

I can't be the only one who just does stocking for kids? They're from father Christmas right?

1forAll74 · 11/11/2021 18:12

More socks for filling it!

I think it is more usual to do a stocking for your partner, than not. My parents always did, my husband and I always have done, and other family do it too.

Obviously we know it's not from Father Christmas! We don't buy big gifts for each other so getting lots of little bits is ideal, and why not put it in a stocking to make it easier to keep all the little presents together and easier to give them in one go? Smile

Last year my husband had the following in his stocking:
Wasabi mayonnaise
Yuzu mayonnaise
Cola bottle sweets.

Not doing a stocking for him this year though. Haven’t bought him anything small enough to fit in a stocking.

socks, pants, t-shirts, bath bombs, body wash - 'chocolate' body wash I found in lush specifically, chocs, coconut ice, BBQ nuts, peanut brittle, PJ bottoms, unusual drinks - found a coffee cake drink in a sweet shop, scratchcard, car freshener, Beanies instant coffee, sometimes deodorant. Usually I put an ale in there too but got him a beer advent calendar this year so won't.

EcoCustard · 11/11/2021 18:41

DH’s stocking so far:
John le Carre novel, The Constant Gardener this year.
Maple butter.
Mug.
Sweets.
L’Occitane shower gel (usually Molton Brown but feel like a change).
Moleskin notebook & pen.
Top trumps super cars.
Brew dog ale.
Gloves
Nice glasses case.
Might add a few more consumables.

EdenFlower · 11/11/2021 18:41

I don't put prezzies in actual stocking for DH, but get a few smaller things to open under the tree. usually get him a nice whiskey, something to wear- scarf, socks, gloves, pjs etc. chocolates, a book, then I run out of ideas!
