The Christmas lolly is made from Belgian chocolate and little sweets. It is bound to be a well received gift in the stocking.

Sylvanian Families Baby Band Blind Bag
Blind bags are exciting for children, the surprise of not knowing what’s inside. What i love about these Sylvanian Families blind bag is that inside is a little baby Sylvanian families animal. Not some plastic tat I often find in blind bags. This is a great surprise collectible that can be added to any Sylvanian families collection.

They are perfect for Christmas stockings and children and Adults alike will love these. Hallmark sell a variety of Itty Bittys so you are bound to find the perfect stocking filler.
The Fartist Cub – Windy Wendy
Why is it Children love anything that is toilet humour related? There are a range of characters in the Fartist club and they all make their own sounds. Windy Wendy has ten different ‘fart’ sounds. Pull her finger to hear all the different sounds. Even better you can push a button on the bum that activates a ten second fart delay, which makes it fun for hiding and fun pranks. These really would be an amusing addition to a Christmas stocking.
Royal Airforce Association Rubber Ducks
Who doesn’t love a rubber duck, we have quite a few in our bathroom. These Rubber ducks from the The Royal Air Forces Association would make a wonderful gift for younger children. Or even adults who used to be in the RAF. You can purchase the ducks from the RAF Association Website. Also by purchasing these super cute ducks you are helping ex and current serving personnel in any way that is required. Whether it helping a wounded airman or ex serving personal that need a shoulder to lean on. A very worthy cause.
I’m Not A.. Books
I absolutely love these recycling craft books. You can recycle every day items to make fab craft creations. These books have step by step instructions and there are handy cut outs that you can use. You can make things like fire engines, owls, a dinosaur, a castle and so much more. These books would make great gifts for boys and girls who love getting crafty. The books are available to buy from Carlton books.
Colgate Minions Talking Toothbrush
Quite a lot of people include a new toothbrush in Christmas stockings. We always do to. This fantastic Minions battery-powered toothbrush from Colgate is amazing. Since using this my youngest now loves cleaning his teeth. When you turn the brush on it talks to you and tells you where you need to clean. Top right, bottom left etc and the amount of time you need to clean the area. This makes brushing their teeth fun and gives them a thorough clean, making this the perfect toothbrush for your child’s Christmas stocking.
Royal Air Force Association Foam Hurricane puzzle
Royal Air Force Association website has so many wonderful gifts for Christmas. This RAF Hurricane Foam 3D Puzzle Plane from the Foam Puzzle Plane makes a great stocking filler. The constructible pieces of foam are easy to put together and will entertain children of all ages.

Nothing beats a good Christmas Film to get you feeling warm, fuzzy and festive. There are some great choices available to purchase. These DVD’s are fantastic and they don’t cost a lot either – making them a perfect stocking filler. The snowman is a classic film and this year is actually the 30th Anniversary of the film. Just incise you haven’t seen the film it is adapted from the classic picture book by Raymond Briggs. A boy builds a snowman who magically comes alive at midnight and they get up to all sorts of things. It really is a truly beautiful film and one everyone will love to watch.
The second film I can whole heartily recommend it Trolls the Holiday. If you have a child who loves Trolls the movie then this is a must. It is a short DVD which is about Poppy and how she loves holidays and celebrations for everything. She feels sad that her friend Bridget the Bergen doesn’t celebrate holidays. There is plenty of singing. dancing and it really is a happy feel good film.
The final film that would not only make a great stocking filler but would also be perfect for a Christmas Eve box or if you have an Elf on a shelf they could leave it as a gift earlier in the month. This festive comedy is about a grumpy green monster who lives on a mountain over looking the town called Whoville. The Grinch hates happiness and also hates Christmas. During the festive season he plans to steal all the festive decorations and presents from all the people in the town. However a girl called Cindy lou and turns the town and the Grinch’s world upside down. A funny comedy that’s Stars Jim Carey who is hilarious in the film. You can purchase all of these films from all good retailers. They are defiantly worth purchasing and children will love them.
Gourmet Pizza Company Christmas Pizza
I never thought I would associate the word Pizza and Christmas together. If you are going to receive a chocolate gift why not a chocolate pizza? The box looks very authentic but you can see the chocolate pizza showing through. Although this is a chocolate pizza in name, there is not doughy base, the whole thing is tasty chocolate. The chocolate is of a lovely quality, with a good defined taste and plenty of sweet creamy flavour. This wonderful 7 inch Christmas pizza has melt in the mouth creamy vanilla fudge on top as well as milk and white chocolate rice balls and white chocolate curls. It really is super tasty. The Christmas Pizza is decorated with a white chocolate plaque featuring a Christmas Tree design and the words ‘Merry Christmas’. You can purchase the Christmas pizza from The Gourmet chocolate Pizza company website.
Hape Swimmer Teddy Wind-Up Toy
Bath time should always be fun for babies and children and there is nothing better than great bath toys to accomplish it. The Hape Swimmer Teddy Bath Toy is guaranteed to provide plenty of fun in the tub. The swimming teddy is brightly eye-catching and colourful and he is very cute too. Once you have wound him up on his back he swims round and round in circles. This swimming teddy is very well made and very solid. He is also quite a bit bigger than most of the other bath toys that are around making it easier for little hands to hold. You can purchase the Hape Swimmer bath teddy from Amazon.
