    There are chocolate shampoos made by Mark Hill and John Frieda in Boots and http://www.boots.com/en/Palmers-Cocoa-Lip-Butter_955263/ palmers chocolate lip butter, buy one get 2nd half price at the moment.

    I used to work in Lush & that lip balm is sooo yummy! Halfcost have a white chocolate one really cheap at the moment too.
    How about a chocolate face mask? About 99p from Savers/Superdrug/Home Bargains.
    I've also seen chocolate scented socks, a chocolate calculator, choc bar shaped mirror and magnets with chocolate related sayings on them!
    My friend did me a chocolate themed hamper last christmas. Some of the items were chocolate coloured, though, so you can cheat a bit to suit the person. I had a chocolate coloured handbag, and a brown flannel to wash off the chocolate face mask she'd put in. Saves my white ones looking so manky! :D

    shazziere - if you look at the top of the page on this board there's a 'sticky' of Hampers listing all sorts.........bound to be one there that would help you I would think. :)

    Like this chocolate themed idea.........I was getting a bit stuck for sons girlfriends birthday -not till September so fair bit of time.
    I've got chocolate scented candles and found printable wrapper on internet for a bar of chocolate
    Like the idea of chocolate face mask...........originally thought of doing a 'pamper' type selection so could combine the two I think:)

    Hi,

    My sister and brother are both mad on levi roots cookin sauces, managed to pick them a copy of his Caribbean Food Made Easy book, in the hope that they will love to try his recipes.They have not got much cookware so was thinking of a casserole, as most of the book uses one of these, and via the sauces not sure how to bring this together.They have about £20-£25 as including there partners in this gift.Does anyone have any ideas i could think about thanks.

  • Hey everyone - loving all the ideas!! chocolate one is brilliant! have some friends who love chocolate, but if i can get things that smell of chocolate and then just one actual bit of eating chocolate would be forgiven!! lol.

    with regards to the levi roots hamper - what about getting some of the stor cupboard ingrediantes in the book, is there dried bits you could get to go in there - chili's. Or what about some of the grow your own herb plant pots with seeds for corriander etc if they are used in the recepies?
    Bottle of Malibu or other drink that relates to the caribbean perhaps?
