Themed hampers are a great idea for a gift… My lovely Mum has, over the last few years, built me a ‘foodie’ hamper from her trips to the local Hare Hatch garden centre (amusingly she makes us give her back the empty wicker hamper so she can re-use it).

So inspired by this, now that she’s sadly staying in a rest home, the boys and I have put together a themed-hamper for her birthday… a Stationery Hamper.KidsChaosBookHamper-stationery-theme-content

KidsChaosBookHamper-stationery-theme-frontStationery Themed Hamper – We used a box-file filled with:

  • Pencil case
  • Smart new pens
  • Diary for next year
  • Pack of post Christmas cards for her to send out
  • Pack of home made notelets
  • Book of stamps
  • Return self adhesive address labels
  • Some posh hand cream

KidsChaosBookHamper-stationery-theme-backThe boys decorated the exterior of the box file to make it look like an envelope – very clever!

Not to be out-done… the other Grandma is book-crazy, so we decided to use ANOTHER box file (this time decorated as a book…)

And filled it full of book-themed gifts:
