So baby number two is on its way a lot quicker than we anticipated! And I have been signed off sick with very little Sick pay.

We have made chutney and got biscuits and a small thing of cheese for most Xmas presents for parents and parents in law.

Also have got some photos of dd1 we plan to give.

What can I make with dd to make it look a lot more. I thought about doing three for two in boots from my dd to her grandparents but DH said we just cannot afford it!

Please could you share your ideas for cheap but nice x mas presents.

Thanks

Have you looked on Pinterest? There's lots of fab ideas on there.

Under the circumstances, I'd just give what you have already sorted.

The last thing you need is added stress, on top of a freshly due baby x

If i were you, i'd go down to the poundshop and get them a cheap photo frame each. Get you lo to stick sequins or buttons or even painted dry pasta around the edges. And pop your pictures you have of dd into them. A lovely gift.

If you felt up to doing something fun with DD, you could make peppermint creams or something like that. But I think in the circumstances everyone will understand and be more than happy woth what you've got already.

Lovely Grandparent Mugs in presentation tins 1/2 price down to £3 at mothercare Could make some biccies to go with them? (or even just the biccies would be nice!)

Sorry misread your post... I think what you have there is perfect and could be from all of you, you don't need anything to give solely from DD. I would be very pleased to receive the items you have listed

Sounds like you have plenty but simple ideas could be bookmarks or calendars x
