Inexpensive stocking fillers

I thought Id share with you some of the gifts I have put together for our secret Santa gift shop at school.
This year we are obviously not going to be hosting our usual Christmas fair, so to help with fundraising and also to give the kids something to look forward to, were opening a shop where they can buy a gift for a grown-up. Ive spent this week putting some together and worked out the coatings of each team. Some have come in really cost effective. I think some of these would be suitable for family to make to gift.
These jewellery gifts come in at 18p And 21p each. The earrings were 20 pairs for 3 from primark and the necklaces and charms were 50 for 9. The Christmas tree card works out at 3p a piece.




The sweet jars are reindeer poop, reindeer noses and bah humbug jars ( stickers to come) these worked out around 1 a jar
The Christmas tealight holders are from ikea at 25p with home bargain tea lights, then wrapped. These work out at around 35p each
the matchbox games are 39p each from home bargains.


I desperately need more ideas for men though if there are any suggestions.

If youd like to know where anything is from just ask

These look great - I am sure they will sell well. I especially like the jars with the sweets.

I have bought a few of the matchbox games myself to put in the advent calendar I make for my grandchildren. They are the ideal size.

I have seen jars filled with sweets that look like smarties with a label on the front that says Take a Chill Pill. There is also one with a small candle with a label saying Because Dad Farted ... This was on Pinterest - sorry its the best I can come up with!

Edit: what about some kind of key ring for men. They are easy to make. Scraps of leather would work.

What about some of the Baker ross type crafts? Can be expensive to buy when kids only want to do one so you could split them up. Is it primary or secondary?
