    Those crates/carriers do look good. If anybody actually sees them in the flesh, could they let us know if they are actually substantial enough to hold bottles. I'm thinking that they may be good to fill with deodorants, body sprays, shaving gel etc, y'know all the boring stuff that people don't like buying for themselves. Thanks for the link.

    I've got 4 of them sat in my craft room LOL I'd say they could hold bottles but I would probably not be entirely happy sticking 6 large beers in - I think 3 beers would be totally fine though

    And they tart up easily to be honest One of them I've tied a ribbon round and made a bow, another I hot glued 3 christmas red glittery flowers to the front of - just having a play around to be honest They look way more than £1!!

    Hi guys sorry I haven't been online recently to respond! Thank you all for the advice I still haven't bought anything like that yet.....although I have pretty much got all the presents etc barring my OH & dad.


    Will definitely have a look at The Range Craftmad thank you!


    And Happy One, thank you for the advice, didn't think of using any container just always had pretty baskets & boxes in my head! I've already been buying bits and pieces like you said and spreading it amongst everyone. Done very well I'm very proud if I say so myself!...although I did get a bit carried away on the kids bits and buy way more little bits than I should have! But I suppose xmas is all about the kids more so hey ho!
