Are you stuck for stocking filler inspiration for your tween? Thinking of little bits to fill a Christmas stocking can sometimes be difficult, so I enlisted some help from my own tween. Here are 20 Funky Stocking Filler Ideas for Tweens that they really, really want!
#1. Colouring Books for all ages have made a welcome comeback this Christmas. There are plenty on offer in bookstores and online – my tween recommends the Harry Potter, and The Clever Kids’ Colouring books from The Book Depository.
#3. Vouchers for their favourite shop or online retailer or phone credit, or iTunes voucher (which you can never have enough off apparently!)
#4. A joke toy, like a whoopee cushion or plastic spider.
#5. A deck of cards with instructions for games and/or magic tricks.
#7. Mini Figure from their favourite game or tv series.
#8. Retro Sweets like popping candy or fizzy sticks.
#9. Novelty key-ring to hang on schoolbag or coat.
#10. Bath or Shower goodies (Shower Gel, Bath Bombs).
#11. Earphones for on the go. I am not sure how they get through so many pairs a year!
#12. A book by their favourite author.
#13. A money box.
#14. A mini jigsaw puzzle.
#15. Tickets for an experience like ice-skating, cinema, bowling or for their favourite café, (so they can go with a friend and you can sit at another table or leave them entirely)!
#16. Novelty Socks or slipper socks for around the house.
#18. A late bedtime or chore pass or a promises cheque book for things like a trip to the cinema, trip to café, lift to school, afternoon shopping, ice-skating trip, bowling trip etc.
#19. Hot chocolate and marshmallows to make at home. My tween loves the Butlers Hot Chocolate.
#20. Christmas Ornament or Decoration.
