Here are the bits I got.
|It all came to around £24, but the tissue paper is a bit unnecessary and I didn't use the bow.|
|Pop the tinsel-y bits in the basket (yes, it's actually a bin..)|
|Then I popped the fake mistletoe in the back.|
|I then added all of the goodies, trying to make it look pretty!|
|Next scattered some of the tinsel-y stuff around and over the chocs.|
|I then made an easy bow using ribbon.|
|Then I wrapped the Basket in Cellophane, added the bow and then stuck on my little gift-tag-come-booklet. Ta Daaah!|
I thought it turned out really nicely, and I know Mum will love it because it's something I have made. I took advantage of buy one get one free offers, and got the all of the stuff from Tesco, Wilkos and a Florist (for the cellophane.) I am making my step-dad a cheese and wine themed one. Its a great gift idea as its really versitile. Some other ideas are:
- A 'DVD Night' theme. Some blockbuster voucers or a DVD with some wine, popcorn, sweets and chocolates? Maybe even a Snuggie!
- A 'Pamper Hamper' Full of smellies like shower gels, bubble bath, bath bombs, scented candles etc.
- Maybe a 'Coffee Lovers' gift set. With a cheap cafetiere, some nice coffee beans, some ameretti biscuits and a nice mug.
