Stocking filler ideas this christmas

I have been prowling the net to look for ideas for gifts for my wife. Have a couple of things that i need to pick up but looking for small gifts to fill the stocking. We are going to Tessin on the 24th/25th to spend some time alone, but at the same time it may get boring down there so need something to keep us busy.

Anybody seen any little gadgets or little pressies with a difference? I have been on a couple of websites but they all have the same stuff, anybody got advice on websites with a difference?

I got her a personalised bottle of prosecco with gold coloured shavings through it to start the day off.

Thanks for helping to make my wifes christmas a special one

Re: Stocking filler ideas this christmas

I don't know if you can get this done in Switzerland but in New Zealand you can get one of your favourite pictures made into a jigsaw....that would be a fun, kill time and sentimental kind of pressie.

You could make it like a treasure hunt and hide clues around the place for her to find the next pressie.

Another cool gift idea, but this takes time is to make a book with photos and stories about the two of you. So the first sentence would be The first time I met you I thought.....and then you fill in the story. That would be a guaranteed brownie point winner .

You could maybe make a voucher book for her ie This voucher is good for one massage.

Just some random ideas and I hope you have a super time away for Christmas.
