My 6 year old boy is getting chocolates, a mini transformer, sunglasses and a rashie.  That's all I can remember. Might throw it a toothbrush too.
For an 11 year old I guess maybe make up or bath body items from The Body Shop.  Maybe some fun jewellery or new swimmers?

I can't help with boy ideas. Don't do boys in our family LOL. Poor DH and FIL are the only boys.

But my girls like Smiggle stuff. They have erasable highlihters there that my girls think are good too. DD#1 likes Typo stuff as well. They all want nail polish from Gloss that changes colour with your mood. There is some nice things in gloss that don't cost much. Little handbags, earphones with a bit of bling on them, hairties etc.

This year they are getting
Pillow pets
Beach towel
Bike helmet

DS 7's stocking will have
A small nano blocks kit (a Santa actually)
A knights activity book (stickers, craft ideas)
A packet of coloured pencils
Plus the 2 things he has asked for which is a snorkel and mask and a DVD
and a rashie and speedos

but I guess you are after ideas for more filler type things than main presents

No big girls in our house but smuggle stuff, lip gloss, etc I guess.

No idea about 11 yr old girls sorry. 6 yr old boys:

My 11yo girl is getting in hers:

Smiggle stationery
Headphones
An outfit
Pj's
Rashie
Boardies
Beach Towel
Drink bottle
Geleez
Shower pack
Torch
2 books
Toothbrush
Toothpaste
Chocolates
Licensed knickers
Silly putty
Coloured bubbles
Underwater camera
Lipgloss
Pigsty desk tidy

Alot of that I would put in a SIX year old boy too - Undies, pj's, outfit, chocolates, toothbrush, toothpaste, torch, camera,books, rashie, boardies. Then whatever they are into.

Oh and I don't put rubbish from the $2 shop etc. I buy quality items that will last. nothing worse than items being done and dusted by Boxing day.

My two are 17 and 9 and I get lots of little things from Typo. I found some cute paperclips and magnets this year- Eiffel towers for DD, and something boyish for DS. Can't look right now as it would spoil the surprise. I also found post it pads in Spotlight in different boy and girl themes. I'll also give some nail polish to DD, and chocolates/sweets for both.

My girls are 11, 9 and 6, and are all getting similar stuff.'

- hair bands
- toothbrush/toothpaste
- pretty undies
- gomu erasers (found some "surprise" packs for 40c each)
- colouring books (barbie one for the 6yr old, a more detailed, non-licenced one for the older girls)
- chocolate money, random candy canes, other lollies, like a cadbury "wish" chocolate
- rash shirt
- lip smackers
- books
- dvd
- little stationary packs (found some cheap ones with notepad, fancy pen and erasers from kmart)
- keyrings with their names
- bath stuff,
- nail polish

Other smaller gifts that my girls are giving each but would be ok as stocking fillers - for the 11 yr old, geleez, books, nailpolish, jigsaw puzzles.

Jelly bean filled giant candy cane
Beach towel
New pair of shorts

Our Santa sacks are pillow cases so fit loads in them - hence the balloon!
