How about a snuggly jumper or fleecy blanket, good book, big mug with hot chocolate sachets (or a nice bottle of wine ), box of chocs and some foot soak so she can put her feet up (after she has soaked them of course :rotfl: ) snuggle up on the sofa and indulge herself?
Liking the new (shorter for now) thread - thanks Rusty :T
Poker set from e-bay arrived to day so just need to put it in step-daughters OHs hamper and wrap it - hopefully it will get done tonight but off for a nice walk as it has finally stopped raining!! :j
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)
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)
I would say keep scouring the charity shops, I was in my local one this morning and they had loads of christmassy toiletries, flannels, etc. so you could probably save quite a bit of money that way.
Good luck with your search x
My aussie (to be posted out to oz) hamper for sister, bil nephew and nephew to be is ready to poast however turned out to be not so much of a hamper and more of a box full of pressies!! But i am happy must be about £200 worth of stuf fin there and did not spend more than £20!! Woop woop!!
So just mummy and neice to do! hurrah!
Loan paying off May 2022 £7000
All together now,
:whistle: It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Ev'rywhere you go; Take a look in the five ... :whistle:
Thanks for showing the pics, everyone's going to love their pressies.
Have a look in local pound shops, you can get matey bubble bath cheaply in there, how about looking in supermarkets at the childrens toys for rubber ducks or toys which could go in the water? if you don't mind not having a character flannel then you can get plain flannels for 50p in asda or 25p in wilkos and then you could get a sponge for him aswell? these are cheapest on the baby section and are about 50p max! possibly even cheaper!
