    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?

    thanks curlylou 1986, will keep my eye out for offers on the sauces ect in the book.

    I saw some lovely square (collapsible) fabric storage boxes today in Poundland, thought they'd be ideal to use for kids hampers.
    One was a light blue with footballs on, the other pink with butterflies.
    A creative mess is better than tidy idleness :D

    Try looking on halfcost, last time i looked they had various shot glasses/drinking things as well as football mug and money box. You may also find things on there to use for christmas to make the postage worth while.

    samantha - where did you get the Liverpool sweets from ? My son is a football fan and these would make a nice extra pressie for him:)
