have the candles in the bottom of the basket, covered with the woolly scarf. Had too much stuff to be able to include shredded tissue lol.
Am really pleased with it, had aimed for a £20 budget with this one, and had just added stuff from my selection of items that I thought would be good with only a couple of candles, the dvd, scarf and belt bought with this hamper in mind and then was only 8p over budget
My son has special needs and I know what you mean about the clothes for christmas. He is easy to buy for if you want to get him another Thomas engine otherwise it can be a bit difficult.
My nephew is autistic and he really likes his toys that have a different feel or movement to them. I picked up some things from Asda from him down the toy aisle -
- one of those small handheld fans (some have lights at the end that are quite fun)
- a squidgy long bug type thing that is very tactile
- stress type balls that have different tectures
- silly putty
But what your idea would also be good - it's just for them to have something to unwrap and for something that he will recognise (favourite character) and for him to get excited about
It contains a mug, mini bottle of rose wine, 3 bars of chocolate from the selection boxes currently £1 in Tesco and a sock monkey (see other thread). All wrapped up in cellophane with a gold pull bow. Total cost - under £3.50.
