Im after a present for my mum who has gone baking mad! Weve got her an electric whisk and plan to get some cake tins, bowls etc for her as all her things are at least 20 years old!

I really want to get her a little tin so when she bakes things for the grandkids she can put them in there and my dad will know they arent for him!! When we were little my gran always baked a little fairy cake with a cherry on when we visited and she is really keen to continue this family tradition so we thought a grannys treat box would go down very well.

Ive tried john lewis/next/debenhams/bhs/lakeland with no luck, please help!

Shes got quite a few with designs on so gotta be one that has something like grannys treats written on it

You might just have to paint your own !!

I do agree that the Not On The High Street one is fab and hand painted and stupidly expensive !!

I wish i was that creative! I thought it would be a really easy thing to find but im struggling!

It is lovely but were just buying little presents this year as ive got a 6 month old little boy whos bankrupting me!!

You may not need to be that crafty. You could do it like this up to the messing about with gesso bit and then stick on some precut letters, scrabble tiles.

This one is nice.

Thanks for all your ideas im almost sorted now!

Ive found a lovely business through the 'mums who make' page on facebook and she makes high quality stickers so im going to find a plain cake tin and shes designing a sticker for the top and one for the sides then will post them to me and im going to try and put them on so they are straight!!

Im getting carried away now and have loads of ideas for personalised presents using these stickers

Just another thought could you go to one of those ceramic places and paint a biscuit tin? Think they do them.
