    Stocking filler ideas for mid to late 20s males would be much appreciated. Light enough to be transported on a plane and train.

    It's only since moving that I've seriously appreciated toiletries (but that said, I'm a broke student )

    I'm trying to be more creative from where I buy presents. Using ebay and such more. So far I've got my sister a make up brush set of 32 brushes. I was in disneyland at the weekend and I got my mum a christmas decoration

    I will bear that in mind. They are both earning, but a large cheque never goes amiss. It's the little things to unwrap on the day that I like doing best.

    Alcohol is always a good shout for anyone over 25. Something like a bottle of brandy shouldn't break the bank. Specially if you go somewhere like lidl. Anything smelly i.e aftershaves, like the little gift sets or, like something from mouton brown? There's always the option of tacky Christmas jumpers. Then if you want a cheap and fun novelty, get some toe socks, they're nice and warm for winter, plus pretty cheap on eBay I've found.

    Hope this helps

    I just go for the idea as it's sort of sophisticated, plus my dad never complains about it xD just more of a safe bet I suppose, I guess it's more ofa mantle piece item to be drunk at a special occasion, not just for a night out etc.

    Was there really any need for that?
