Are you struggling to find the perfect gift?

There is always one difficult one isn't there?

When I saw this wicker hamper in the box of goodies I was sent from Hobbycraft I immediately thought of my Dad. He always asks for Blu Rays for Christmas but I seriously HATE buying gifts for people where they know what it is before they even open it, what's the point?

So I decided to fill this lovely hamper full of all of his favourite treats as a surprise. 


I cut off a good sized piece of the red organza and pushed it into the base of the hamper. Then I bought some treats: a bottle of port, some shortbread biscuits, chutney his favourite coffee and some chocolates. I am also going to add in a couple of his favourite cheeses.

Because I need to add them at the last minute and the fact that the hamper looks so lovely, I didn't want to wrap it so instead I tied a giant bow around it using a length of the red organza.



I think it makes a brilliant present and would quite like one myself. I also love that the hamper can continue to be used, it would make a very good picnic basket for the Summer months. What do you think?
