Adult Stocking Filler Ideas


There are less than eight weeks until Christmas, which means that now is the time to start thinking about your gift buying if you haven’t already! While a lot of people believe that Christmas stockings are only for children when you’re in a relationship where there are no kids involved, it can be nice to bring a little magic back to your Christmas celebrations, and I think that making stockings for each other does that.


The Gamer Bloke and I have put stockings together for each other for the past couple of years and it’s always so much fun. I love picking out little gifts for him that I know he’ll really appreciate – it’s just so much fun. It really brings some of the magic back to Christmas for me. So, bearing that in mind, the question is: what should you put in adult Christmas stockings – what make the best stocking fillers?


A satsuma


First and foremost, a satsuma is a must-have for any stocking. I mean, what’s Christmas without a satsuma at the bottom of your stocking? I don’t know about you but from when I was a child all through my life, every stocking I ever got had a satsuma in the bottom. If your partner isn’t a big fruit fan, then perhaps swapping the traditional satsuma for a Terry’s Chocolate Orange could be a good idea.


Alcohol-related items


If your partner is an alcohol-lover (not in a problematic way, of course) then adding an alcohol-related gift could be ideal. The Gamer Bloke is a big fan of Bloody Mary’s, so last year I added a Bloody Mary mini kit to his stocking, and it was highly successful. He loves miniature things so this went down well. For anyone who has a favourite drink, a mini kit of their favourite cocktail makes an ideal stocking filler.


Sweet treats


It’s not Christmas without sweet treats, is it? For me, my go-to Christmas sweet treat is chocolate coins, but The Gamer Bloke is more a luxury chocolate kind of guy, so I usually buy him some Thorntons Christmas chocolates. He’s a real praline lover, so this is usually the route I go down. Another sweet treat to add to an adult stocking is alcoholic sweets – I am a huge fan of these, as I think they add an extra layer to traditional sweets. I love the Hollies Lollies and John Lewis ranges of alcohol sweets.


Themed gifts


If your partner has a favourite TV show, movie or game, then pick some gifts that relate to this. For instance, my partner loves Marvel and Star Wars, so I picked out stocking fillers that are Star Wars or Marvel-themed. I got him a selection of Marvel items, including a Yoda Lego torch, a Batman bottle opener, a Darth Vadar whiskey glass, and a selection of other items. Find a theme to follow and you’re all set when it comes to stocking fillers.
