  • Hello,
    I am new to MSE
    I have been looking through this thread, it is great, I just wondered if there is a new one I should be following?
    I have purchased a lovely basket today from TKMaxx (they had some lovely decorations too) for putting all my easter bits in for the kids (5 & 2 years). I am hoping to put together a kind of Easter half term survival basket, including :-

    Easter themed DVD
    Some easter egg cups for decorating
    Bulbs for planting in the garden
    Ingredients for easter cakes
    Craft bits and pieces from the £1 shop
    Homemade vouchers for walks at the local parks etc

    Any other ideas would be gratefully recieved

    Tracy, check this thread for (hopefully) all your questions to be answered! It's basically all the components for hot chocolate in a bag with marshmallows (eyes/nose/buttons) etc

    Don't forget the candy cane as a stirrer attached to the bag :o

    Can I ask - where does everyone get the shredded paper to pad out the baskets? Is there somewhere online which sells it fairly cheap?

    Probably quite a bit too late - but I got mine from The Works - huge bag for 99p of gold lametta type. Got some green and red from Card Warehouse for the same price and I remember seeing some in B&M's too last Christmas but I can't remember the price.

  • hi guys,

    for the first time this year I am thinking about making hampers (need to get my butt in gear!:eek:)

    could anyone tell me what size baskets you use? I have been looking online on the Wilkinsons site etc, but not quite sure which ones to go for!!

    Any help would be appreciated:)
