Have decided to do cuddle hampers for most of my family this year seeing as the country is in a recession - yey! so I wanted to give a gift that would be used/ appreciated and showed thought etc.
So I decided to make some cuddle hampers.
They will consist of
- a nice hamper
- a no sew handmade blanket or lapblanket
- a pair of pyjamas or nightdress
- a cup
- hot chocolate sachets
- slippers or slipper bed socks
- hot water bottle and cover
- cookie mix in a jar
I am planning to make them for
my sister with the items in pink
my niece aged 4 with a princess theme
my niece aged 2 with a fifi and the flowertots theme
my nan in pale blue/flowery theme
my grandfather in green/train theme
my mum with a tiger theme.
My sister might also have a small bottle of whiskey so she can have a hot toddy too.
I will make changes fro my niece so instead of a hot water bottle they may get the cuddly toys with a rice bag centre that you sit in the radiator to warm up instead of a hot water bottle, and they might have a little bag of Christmas chocolates instead of cookie mix.
and my grandfather is going to get some home made shortbread instead of marshmallows in his hamper.
