    Hi all!!

    all the baskets look Great as always!!

    I need some inspiration from you if anyone can help me please?!!:confused:

    My dad and his girlfriend are off to Australia in Jan on there hols and I am hoping to make their x-mas pressie a Australian themed basket, but am stuck as to what to put in it, So far I have, suncream, aftersun, Lonley planet guide to Australia, and now i'm stuck lol!!

    My other one I'm stuck on is my mum! she is soooo hard to buy for, she doesnt like smellies, doesnt really have a hobby as such, she works very hard long hrs in the week so at the weekend relishes in not having to do a thing!! :rotfl: Any ideas?

    I look forward to your replies!!
    How about a book like Billy Connollys world tour of Australia or the Bill Bryson one (can't remember the name) ideal travel reading but not too heavy-going to read.
    Only discovered your previous thread yesterday, had already gathered a few bits for making up Christmas hampers, but trawled the charity shop this morning for more. Found a gorgeous white and lavender hat box for £1, perfect for my 5 for £5 Lavender stuff from Avon
