  • I always hit the sample aisles for my guys. Men's shower wash, deodorant, soap, hand sanitizer, mouthwash, toothpaste, etc. I also slip a deck of cards in along with the latest mags they might be into, hotrods, skateboarding, sports illustrated Jr., yu-gi-oh, whatever. Then some Christmas candy, apple & orange.

  • the first post was good, i usually get candy everyone loves that. but not normal candy like those great big lollipops, and the candy on sticks, not something that you can just crab at the check out line they have alot of nifty candy iteams in the christmas isle at walmart for really cheap

  • i always go to target's dollar section for stocking stuffers. it's right in the front of the store, behind the carts. not everything is a buck but most of it is, and they have a wide selection of various items for people of all ages. mine are much younger than yours, my oldest is 4 but i got a lot of little puzzles, books, socks and stuff like that and i think for all three spent about 30 bucks and got a lot of stuff for their stockings :)

  • I don't have boys, but I would get them their favorite snacks, make coupons to get out of chores or to stay up late, condoms...lol just kidding :) gloves, socks, gift cards, and maybe "manly" body wash.

  • BOYS are hard! I have one son and 2 girls and I tend to spend more on him because all the small stuff for boys is so pricey...I need a DVD, 2 hot wheels, an electric toothbrush, 2 candy items, notepads, pencils, a santa jumbo pencil, mini moraca, a cube eraser, I forget what else but he is just 7. I amy get some bakugon to throw in their too.
