    Christmas hamper help! 20th Aug 17 at 2:36 PM
    So I'm starting to think about Christmas and get the presents for family sorted!

    I am wanting to do a kind of 'pre-wedding' hamper for my brother and sis in law as they are getting married early March.. has anybody got any ideas of what I can actually put in there??

    Thanks in advance to all ideas

    Wickford and Co do a wedding bells candle. You can get them in Home Bargains. The big ones (Yankee large size) are about £2.99 and the smaller ones are pennies. They are really good quality too and on a par with Yankee IMHO.

    Not pre wedding, but I gave a cousin money for their wedding present as that was what they requested (I did ask). However I often think just money there isn't much thought in it. So as well as the money I made up a travel essentials bag for their honeymoon travels.

    I made a draw string bag and bought, luggage scales, plug adapters, small padlocks,a pack of cards, hand sanitizer and the like. The list is endless. It was well receive.

    I bought books "Don'ts for Wives" and "Don'ts for Husbands" - the tips are from 1913. I also bought them "Sex Tips For Husbands and Wives from 1894" - the bride and groom both had a good giggle.
    The books are about £3.50 from Amazon, but you may be able to find them or something similar in places like The Works,etc.

    I did one for my brother & sister-in-law to be a couple of years ago. I based it around champagne and a big year to celebrate. I put in glasses which they used for their toast, and champagne mixers, accessories.
    Not been on for a while but need to get finances in order

    DH, DS 28, DD 23 just come back home, Frodo & Morgan

    I bought one of these framed prints a while back for a wedding anniversary. I think they're really good gifts for couples

    How about a money box in it which they can use to save for something together with.

    Or also little "i owe you's" which the couple can write to each other
