I haven't seen Daniel since my operation.. He's been down in Northampton. I was going to save this for Valentines day but seen as we've both had rubbish time lately but I won't go into why on the Internet. My mum and brother chipped in for the Kindle before you think its way OTT but the gift basket and other little goodies i had bought a week or so ago! So i surprised Daniel with this last night and thought it would be a good idea to share..with you guys maybe for valentines or an anniversary / birthday treat for a friend or loved one :)
I used a wicker hamper basket I found at my mums. I ordered some east of India ribbon and my mum picked up some chocolate hearts from Tesco, they're cheap about a £1.00 for a pretty big bag. You can fill the basket with the persons favourite little bits and bobs!! Here's what I filled Daniel's basket with..
A special edition Darwin £2.00 coin as a little keepsake as he's a huge Darwin and evolution fan, a pug air freshener, a F1 magazine and duff beer bath goodies! These gift basket fillers can be as cheap or as expensive as you like its totally up to you so they fit all budgets.. I think it's all about the thought and presentation. Filling it with their favourite little goodies.. really personal to them!
As I said my family chipped in with the kindle I then bought some chocolates and a new Red Bull flavoured drink for him to try as he loves energy drinks. To top it off i popped in a 3 year old picture of us and wrote a little message on the back :) other filler ideas could include mini aftershaves or perfume, a DVD, cinema tickets, their favourite box of chocolates, photographs, a bottle of alcohol or a nice scented candle etc etc!
A -huge- thank you to all the lovely messages on my last post I'm doing a bit better each day! I have typed this all with one hand haha so tiring and long!! The nurse visits aren't as bad and tonight its a pick-up Nandos for tea mmmm what do you think of this gift idea?
