What kinds of smallish or flat things can I wrap into a surprise ball that teenagers would like?

This year I'm making surprise balls for my nieces and nephews for Christmas. If you'd like to see an example, here's one:
This is really easy to do for the little ones with lego figures and other small toys but I'd also like to make one for my niece who is 14 and my nephew who is 12. For my niece, I have a necklace, lip balm and a lottery ticket. I could do earrings too but that brings the price up quite a bit and I'd like to keep the price low if possible. Other ideas for a 14 year old girl? For my nephew, the only thing I have is a lottery ticket--so at the moment I'm wondering if I should just fill it with lottery tickets? Or what else would be creative? I'm not entirely clear on what hobbies or other things he likes except for video games. I'm trying to avoid gift cards because I always end up giving those.
It doesn't have to be tiny like a necklace or entirely flat like a lottery ticket--it can have some bulk as long as it's pretty small. Any ideas would be appreciated!
