    Sorry me again - just looking for some general advice and ideas - I am thinking of doing my sort of FIL a hamper for Christmas and he loves coffee so I am going with that theme - I usually spend about £30 - 35 on him. So far for the hamper I am going to include a coffee plant (if I can get one in winter!!!!!), some dark chocolate covered coffee beans, which I will make myself then wrap up the rest of the beans as they are, two cups and saucers/maybe espresso cups but other than that I am stumped! That will only come to £20 max - it doesn't have to come to the full amount but I want it to look substantial so any ideas would be gratefully received!

    Hi I'm making a coffee hamper for my OH for Christmas, so far I've got-

    Giant mug
    Some 10p sachets of Options coffee we have at work - latte and cappucino
    Some cappucino flavoured coffee wafers in a tin
    Chocolate covered esspresso beans
    A jar of high caffeine coffee
    Some ground coffee to go into his caffetiere
    Some homemade coffee truffles or something

    Also doing a cocktail hamper for my brother's girlfriend with

    Two martini glasses
    Funky ice cube tray
    Some small bottles of homemade flavoured vodka - blackberry, toffee and cola cube
    Some mini alcohol bottles, maybe archers, tequila etc
    Jar of cocktail cherries
    Maybe some fancy swizzle sticks

    And a nice food hamper for my OHs parents, not decided exactly what's going in that yet though!
    D'you know, in 900 years of space and time, I've never met anyone who wasn't important

    Thanks in advance!
    That sounds awesome :) Just a couple of ideas...?

    Those fizzy tablets for dentures?
    A bag of those sweets that are basically little teeth?

  • The FB group is a bit quiet, what can we do to get it going again?
    Maybe a group challenge or task. Pick one item to make and we can all post our pics etc?
