I absolutely love giving gifts at Christmas and I especially love buying stocking fillers for everyone. We each have a traditional stocking which hangs down the banisters of the stairs (we don’t have a fireplace) and we always make sure that everyone’s stocking has been topped up with little gifts, never anything of particular value, just little oddities that the recipient will love. I’ve had a little scout around for you to give a few ideas if you’re stuck for what to buy;
Stocking Fillers for Him
Sweet Champions Selection Box – Presents that evoke nostalgia are always a winner with me so what better than a Sweet Champions selection box filled with favourites like dip dab, refreshers, sherbet fountain, fruit salad and wham etc. A delicious bar containing crunchy pieces in an orange flavoured centre. It has no artificial colours flavours or preservatives and no hydrogenated vegetable oils.
Currently available from Sainsburys at £2.00
Baffle Handheld Puzzle Game – Baffle looks like someone has tried to make a Rubik’s Cube out of Smarties and a camera lens, but this is one addictive game! The idea is to align the buttons vertically in their colour groups all the way around. Sounds easy right? Well these coloured dots can move from line to line as well as rotate on each layer. Find Me a Gift love handheld puzzles and this one is a doozy!

Star Wars Mini Glasses – There aren’t many men that I know who don’t relive their youth through the powers of Star Wars. This set of 4 character glasses from Star Wars is ideal for a 35ml tipple.

Christmas Pocket Selection – There’s always one who’s difficult to buy for at Christmas, whether it’s a secret Santa, work colleague or someone you see once a year. Present them with this pretty box of chocolates and show you care – these recipes are so beloved you can’t go wrong! Alternatively, if someone’s stocking is missing that yum-factor, top it up with this ribbon-tied box for an elegant finish.

Stocking Fillers for Boys
Invisible Ink Spy Pen – I bought these for each of my Beans last year as stocking fillers and they all loved them. They have used them so much in their games play, writing secret messages to each other that only they can read with the special light in the pen.
Currently available from Amazon at £2.70
Lego Man Soap – SLS Free – There aren’t many little boys that I know that don’t love Lego. They might not all love washing but hopefully with a Lego Man soap there’s more chance of getting them to use it. Got to be worth a try at least don’t you think?
Currently available from TopGifts.co.uk from £2.99
Wild & Wolf Yoyo – sometimes its the most simple of gifts that are the best. My children still get excited they get a new Yoyo, it’s just one of those toys that you can carry around in your pocket or your school bag. This one lights up so great fun for the dark winter’s nights too.
Currently available from Debenhams at £5.00
