Although we always put the main presents under the tree, I do love to have a few extra surprises in the stockings for the boys too. Every year I add some chocolates and some candy canes and a few small toys, but I always find it quite difficult to get toys that are reasonably priced and will entertain the boys. This year I have found a whole selection of great stocking filler ideas, here are my favourite 4.
Spy glasses – what boy wouldn’t want to be a secret spy? These glasses
enable the wearer to see behind them and spy on unsuspected guests
over Christmas. An absolute steal at £1.75 from party bags and supplies.
Dominoes – If you want something that could be used for a
fun stack them up and knock them down game and also double as a
good educational maths toy, then this is it. £1.25 also from Party bags
A new watch – This is a great idea for children who can tell the time
and are starting to be more independent but also for those that are
just starting to tell the time, as it encourages them to learn whilst being
fashionable. £13 from Smiggle.
A scented hardtop pencil case – If you are looking for something a little
different these scented pencil cases are great. Your child will be the
envy of all their class mates with one of these and they are available in
5 different colours and designs. £15 from Smiggle
What are your stocking filler must haves?
(Both Party bags and supplies and Smiggle sent me items to review to be included in a post. All opinions are my own.)
