What basket, box or bag for mini hampers?

Thinking of doing a mini christmas hamper for a few family members.

So far they will contain, small bottle of xmas pudding vodka, a jar of chutmey, some chocs and mince pies.

Can anyone point me towards any bags (maybe jute ones?) or boxes?

Many thanks smile

I wanted something like that but all the boxes I looked at were too small and the baskets (which I really wanted) were too expensive. I found some really sturdy flat-pack boxes at B&Q - I managed to get 4 jars in one of them and there was still room for more.

£3 each. Very strong too.

Our library sells lovely little jute bags in loads of colours, worth a look?

Tkmaxx is good for fancy boxes and wee baskets and not too expensive.

Do you have a Buyology near you? They had a huge selection of christmas gift boxes last week. I bought one (roughly shoe box size) for £1.50.

Tesco have Orla Kiely shopping bags which are lovely and cost £4. I gave some as Christmas presents on their own last year and they were very well received grin.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I have just ordered 10 mini jute bags from eBay. They come in different colours but I have just ordered natural and will put some ribbon and a candy cane on the handles.

Now to actually make stuff to go in it!!
