That reminded me of a gift my grandpa got. It was this round piece of wood and it said "Here is a Roundtoit for you" since he never got around to doing things

last year for christmas everyone got a hamper lol

i done three different onces:

little ones i made hot chocolate ones, i bought a big pack of value mugs and got some little sachets of hot chocolate, bought some mini marshmallows, candy cane and a tiny bar of chocolate or a little lints santa. then wrapped them with cellowrapp and tied it with green and red ribbon which really went down well wish i had a picture to show but they really went down a treat.

i made bath ones: these were in little baskets, they had homemade soap and bath crystals (made by myself) they have a bottle of lotion and a bath scrubber and a bar of chocolate

and then there were my big hampers which was in a wicker basket they had shortbread, cookies, coffee and tea, jam and honey, crackers, pack of bisutes and bottle of wine, bottle of non-alcoholic wine and some chocolates

they were a real treat also made home-made tablet and wrapped it up in lovely cellowrapp with ribbon went down well


gave little hampers of soap and bath crystals to family like aunties and uncles they really liked them...

i am considering making little hampers again, thinking of making a gamers hamper for my OH this year, but unsure really low on money this year so think everyone will be getting little things, i am currently doing my christmas shopping to spread it over the next few months and think gonna buy some little christmas bags and every week get someone out of poundland or if somethin is one sale, they do boxes of malteasers in poundland so i often get those lol can get some nice perfume in poundworld...

would love to hear free christmas gift ideas
