What to put in as stocking fillers for kids
Think about what the kid on your gift list loves – and then think small! If they love some of 2020's hottest toys, like LOL Surprise dolls, Disney or Paw Patrol, look for the smaller figures or accesories. If they love to play sport, go for stocking fillers related to their favourite teams – like stationery, hats or gloves – or the smaller sized equipment, like mini footballs, so they can play their fave sport. This year, a popular stocking filler is fun face masks emblazoned with kids' favourite characters and themes. Pretty much anything goes, as long as it fits in their stocking and, generally, is at a reasonable price point. We've kept our list under £10.
We’ve included the last-minute delivery dates for gifts to arrive before Christmas. But with complicated delivery this year, with volume and COVID-related delays for many retailers, nothing is guaranteed – it's best to get shopping ASAP!
