Of course, the highlight of any stocking is the tempting selection of chocolate and sweets – Christmas is the perfect time to indulge, after all. From the ever-popular candy canes to chocolate Santas, snowmen and more, there are plenty of options to sweeten that stocking. For example, choose a Christmas selection box packed with Cadbury favourites and share them out between the stockings, or treat someone to a cute toy and chocolate gift set. Tubs of Cadbury Roses or Heroes are Christmas classics and perfect for scattering into stockings, or spoil them with their own Toblerone Christmas bar. There really is something for every taste!
