    You could have a look in your local Sainsburys to see if they stock Tim Tams. I've heard that they sell them, but not all stores keep them in. They're a very popular chocolate biscuit in Australia! :p

    tim tams in england! oh my god! i need them

    Littlewoods - £214.82 (DD set up so 0%)
    Very - £100 (0% on BNPL - 1/4/13)
    CC - £2600/£3533.53 (0% until 1/6/14)
  • I think they're mainly stocked in a few London Sainsbury's stores, but someone might have some luck finding them elsewhere!

    boys pjs in primark are £3 and quite cute too, about 4/5 styles too. You can get Matey bubble bath (shaped like a pirate bird) for 99p from most places (think i got mine in bodycare) i've also seen bath crayons in 99p shops too, and in wilko there's a white plastic box thing that looks 'bathroomy' for 99p so that might work?

    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)

    Jess x

    I wouldn't worry about getting a basket to put it all in- I'd cover a shoebox in Christmassy paper instead! Definitely check out Poundland for bubble bath and flannel. Also Primark have slipper socks for £1 which are very cosy and cheaper than proper slippers.
    :DYummy mummy, runner, baker and procrastinator :p
  • just to add, think there's a blue one in wilko too and the sponges are 19p I believe

    also does he have a 'thing'? i think some autistic kids have a bit of a thing about something, a little boy my mum used to work with loved wheels and another loved rainbows. Perhaps if he does, you could include something related to it?
