I have bought hamper baskets to fill for my aunts and uncles. Now I'm stuck on what to put in them, up to a value of £30. Any suggestions?

I’ve just done one for my sister with different teas, coffees and biscuits and a travel mug and a glass bino water bottle.

One for dp with different beers, posh crisps, chocolates and some soft drinks from a farm shop.

Others I’ve done have a pamper theme, nice candle, face masks, nail varnish and bubble bath

I love doing hampers, I've recently created a slimming world inspired one, adding lots of treat items and hard to get things and including syn values.
Previously I've looked up hampers from places like Waitrose/duchy range, copied the list of items then purchased all item individually, turned out you would pay about £15 for the box and packaging. Also means I can swap or sub items that recipient wouldn't enjoy!
You can buy cellophane from hobby craft or the range and make them look fab.
Oh I also used beer buckets as my hamper one year, and did a beer theme.

"Quiet night in" is fluffy socks, DVD, bottle of wine, box of chocolates, etc.

"Commuter kit" is windscreen scraper, travel mug or Costa card, air freshener, posh nut/seed bars, etc.

"Winter survival kit" is gloves, scarf, Strepsils, Lemsip, etc.

Check discounters e.g. Home Bargains and T K Maxx for the components.

Pinterest is good for suggestions for these. Some people go nuts!

T k maxx is a dream. Did a whole baby hamper for someone from there (apart from a toy from John Lewis) and it went down a treat!
