I still have to finish my Christmas Shopping this week. So I am after stocking stuffer ideas for the kids-
For 11yr old Girl and 6yr old Boy.
I am actually hanging santa stockings off our mantel piece.

Toothbrush, new pens, stickers, chocolate money and an orange. Well that's what we always got

The reject shop! My kids got book lights for a recent trip to qld, $2.50 each big hit. Small findaword, activity, soduku books, pencils, hair ties, tennis balls, feathery pens, notebooks.

My 12 yo girl would like nail polish, jewellery, makeup, iTunes card, movie tickets, swimmers, sunglasses, art packs, pencil case, stationary, chocolate, perfume, nice hair bands & any kind of voucher

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
previous years - general stationery and craft items. I agree about the cheap shops.

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.

My kids are all getting licensed jocks, sunglasses, some lollies and packs of sultanas in their stockings.

No idea about 11 yr old girls sorry. 6 yr old boys:
DVD, matchbox car, spiderman undies, action figurine, board shorts, superhero stickers, drink bottle, pencil case, sunnies, and of course the obligatory chocolate money and other sweets.

My 11yr old is getting a cadbury chocolate stocking, one direction stuff such as a dvd, watch and postcard things, hairbrush, lip gloss, smiggles stuff.
Posted 16 December 2012 - 11:53 AM
My 11yo girl is getting in hers:
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.

Fart putty! my 6yr old loved this more than his expensive presents and has asked for it again
Posted 16 December 2012 - 05:01 PM
Kids are 8, 6 and 4.
They are getting in their stockings:
name stickers for school
Posted 16 December 2012 - 06:07 PM
My girls are 11, 9 and 6, and are all getting similar stuff.'
- hair bands
- 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
- 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.

My daughter is getting Lindt chocolate christmas bear, a small Lego Friends pack, a Famous Five book and a card game of PicEureka (or whatever that is called!).

My 7 & 11 year olds are getting:
Putty/ slime stuff
Lindt choc bag
Those spinning helicopter things that spin to the ceiling
Battery operated mini games (I got Operation and Battleships)

My kids are much younger but this is what they are getting:
Jelly bean filled giant candy cane
New pair of shorts
Kiddy chopsticks (they are both sushi obsessed)
Board game (not sure if this will go under the tree or in sack)
A shiny red apple
And I'm sure there's something else lurking too but can't remember right now...
Our Santa sacks are pillow cases so fit loads in them - hence the balloon!
