Ok, mamas, so I am a frugal budget-obsessed mom (and have recently taken over the budget-reigns from dh) and I am planning wa-a-a-y ahead for Christmas.

What can I put in my 9 year old ds's stocking that won't break the bank but is still fun and appealing?

Ideas, please! :

I have an 8 yr old ds, some of the things he would like are:

disposable camera
a pack of baseball or football cards
flash light (don't know why, but he LOVES them)

Can't think of anything else right now. For me the girls are so much easier to do stocking stuffers. Hair ribbons or bows, lip gloss, a small doll.

I was thinking Hot Wheels, too ...
Is UNO too old for a 9yo??
I bought loads of crayon/markers/paint, etc during the school supply sales for small Christmas gifts for my neices/nephews
Also, I'm putting socks in our girls' stockings, and both will be getting toothbrushes ... yeah, I know, no fun, but it helps to fill it!
I think girls would be easier, but, of course, that's cause I have girls!

Don't know why but my eight year old ds is really into a ricebag right now. You microwave it to make it warm and they can warm their feet at night. Of course, mine uses his on his head as a mohawk, sees how far he can walk balancing it, sits on it for who knows what reason...

It's easy to sew a pocket on it and write a note for him too. Just make sure he doesn't put anything metal or meltable, like a crayon, in the pocket before you microwave it.
