For some, a stocking crammed full of little thoughtful gifts often holds the best surprises of all, especially those that make you smile.

Nothing says Christmas quite like the traditional Christmas Stocking. The excitement of a being a child on Christmas morning, filled with anticipation and delight, waiting to discover what Father Christmas has left for you in your stocking, never quite leaves you. For some, a stocking crammed full of little thoughtful gifts often holds the best surprises of all, especially those that make you smile.

Leading high street gift retailer, Robert Dyas has created their list of ‘must have’ stocking fillers for 2018 and it’s enough to give you a real sense of the festive season.

Creature comforts

Adorable animals are all the rage this Christmas! A great stocking stuffer for lovers of cute creatures is the Make Your Own Sloth Kit (£4.99). A creative gift to keep both adults and children entertained on boxing day.

For the dinosaur fan! Hatch your very own baby dinosaur with the Nurchums Large T-Rex Hatching Egg (£5.99) and watch with awe and wonder as it grows up to 16cm in height.

Ensure your gifts are right on the animal trend with the Gift Republic Llama Duster (£12.99). This will add a dash of South American flair and dazzling colour to an otherwise ordinary cleaning routine.

The party season

Ideal for the ‘prosecco princess’, the Pop Up Prosecco Glass (£5.99) will add extra fizz and sparkle to any festivities.

Who will be the unicorn hoopla champion? Take aim at the golden horn with the Unicorn Hoopla Hat (£6.99), perfect for bringing a little bit of wacky magic to the party.

The Gameboy Alarm Clock (£23.99) is an absolute must for avid gamers. This handy little gadget plays the Super Mario Land theme tune when the alarm sounds, taking you back in time to the days of Mario, Donkey Kong and the other retro Nintendo characters.

Put a stop to any boring conversations which may pop around the Christmas dinner table with the Funtime Blah Blah Button (£4.99). If it does get a bit much this year, simply hit the red button and end the misery.

It’s all about the sprouts

It just wouldn’t be Christmas without reference to sprouts and the Brussel Sprouts Jigsaw (£3.99) fits the bill. Whether you are a friend or foe of the little green brassica, this puzzle is perfect for an after-dinner family challenge.

And for anyone who is fiercely anti-sprout, The Sprout-A-Pult (£7.99), is a particularly handy aid for launching those unwanted vegetables at unsuspecting family members, creating hours of fun and clearing your plate at the same time.

Token toilet humour

No stocking is complete without humorously alluding to bodily functions! Magic Poo (£4.99) is ideal for children or those kids that never grew up. This amusing prank putty will have all your friends fooled! The clever creation bounces, shatters, melts and goes hard or soft. It will help you to perform plenty of gruesome pranks on Christmas day.

Or consider a roll of Christmas-jokes toilet paper (£3.99). The recipient will be thoroughly entertained while otherwise engaged.
