    If you were making up a hamper for say an older relative what would you put in it.

    I dont know what to get my grandparents and dh's gran and think maybe a hamper but what would I put in it?

    And ideas.

    The problem is my papa is a baker to trade (in his day) so can make his own xmas cake and shortbread. He made my wedding cake :D .

    I guess it depends what they like :D

    cheese
    crackers
    bottle of wine/champers or something they like?
    1 glass each depending on the drink they like (mini whiskey & whiskey glass, wine glass for wine) etc
    brandy snaps

    Do they drink? If so what?

    Nothing wrong with adding the small chritsmas cakes to your hamper for decoration like the mini fancy ones you get in gift shops :D or:

    Truffles or chocs they like? Maybe mini boxes (a couple)
    Jams
    Candles for decoration too
    peanuts
    twinning teas?
    Toffifee < old favourite isn't it?
