    Right, I don't see OH's mum over a pathetic incident that happened at her house when Callum was 5 months old. He hasn't seen her since and he is now 13 months old. But I still wanted to get her a christmas present to be amicable and I would love for them to see each other again. I am doing a hamper of her favourite things and have these so far

    - Her favourite tea (yorkshire tea)
    - Marmalade (she only buys this special occasions as it's "expensive" :wacko:)
    - Lindt 75% dark chocolate
    - Pack of mince pies
    - Pen with either "Barbara" or "Granny" on it (need to get this - will depend on stock in shop I live near)

    What else could I put in it? She is not into pampering or anything specific really. But wanted to bulk it up with a couple of cheapy bits. I am putting them in a box instead of a wicker basket so have a bit more room free

    Thanks x

    The photo book idea is lovely or you could get a nice frame with a picture of your LO in it.

    Other ideas that would be quite cheap I think are:
    sweets
    biscuits
    bubble bath
    candle

    Shortbread sounds good, a granny mug, a granny Christmas tree ornament, or how about making some salt dough decorations, maybe one of LO's hand and let him paint it (with help of course) xx
