Also does anyone know where you can buy really cheap baskets or something to put the stuff in??
You might even get inexpensive ice cream dishes or something similar from the Poundland summer barbecue range at the moment.
If you do a movie hamper, you could use a giant popcorn box for a hamper , try looking on ebay/amazon, i did one a couple years ago, i actually used a cardboard box, which i cut down, i cover it with brown paper, and then printed off some film cells, movie ticket, action thing (that the director uses) and stuck them to the side of the box. i got some plastic reusable popcorn tubes from ebay, but have see them at homebargains before, you can also get cardboard ones.
put in bags of sweets, pringles, dips, xmas movie, hot choc, or bottle of pop, paper cups and wrap with cello wrap and a big bow hth
Thanks Betterlife! I'll take a look in homebargains over the weekend x
I've had an idea of doing my teenage son a Bonfire hamper. He adores bonfires, must be all those years at cubs;). Uusally I get him some mystic fire sachets and put them in his stocking, but I've thought I might buy these this year, as I'm lacking extras I could get him.
Don't know what to add to it though other than scarf, hat, gloves which we already have plenty of. Ideas welcome.
Can't believe there's just 126 days to go and I'm determined not to leave it til the last minute this year and end up panic buying!

Not long now :rudolf:
it depends on what i am putting in it and how big, i have used plastic baskets from the pound shop when its been big things, or wee cardboard boxes from card shops for smaller hampers. kids hampers if its based on a character i try to get a box with that character on it.
