  • I think the hampers that have the wrapping paper underneath the cello look really lovely, I wish I had waited to wrap mine all up as I would have copied this idea. Will keep it by for next year.

    I think this thread will be like 10 pages long by tonight lol!

    My brothers one will have a movie kind of theme to it i think! Maybe bag of popcorn , bag of marshmellows , dvd and bottle of coke or some thing? then line the basket with a nice t shirt and novelty pair of socks!

    Now here is a question

    My Godsons 6 year old have SERVER autism , doesnt speak and is still in nappies and attends a special school..

    What do i get him , he has a ton of clothes , and people always buy him clothes for xmas/birthdays.. he gets toys but throws them and doesnt really play with them..

    So i thought maybe a bath hamper (he loves baths)
    With

    Novelty charecter bubble bath (£2.00 max)
    Novelty charecter flannel (£1.00 max)
    If i can get a small cheap towel for under £3.00 he can have that..
    Pair of jammas for under £4.00
    Cheap pair of slippers £2.00

    So thats £12.00 max but i didnt really spend that much , is there any way i can get some cheaper things but make the basket just as nice!

    I dont want to spend more then £8.00 (well i do want to spend more but i CANT)

    My tescos do a bag of popcorn for 49p for your brothers hamper, novelty socks from poundland

    For your god sun the bath hamper sounds great. Try wilkinsons for towels, they are really cheaper. Also try poundland for bubble bath. Primark do childrens pjs for £3 and they do fluffy christmas socks for £1 also! Which would save you on the slippers.

    Not sure if this counts as a hamper, but it's a little wrapped gift I have made for a friend for Christmas.

    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. :)

    How about something sensory? Like a light spinny toy like this one? Autistic children generally LOVE these
