Friday finds: The DIY Hamper series


A little while back I wrote about creating your own gift hampers. They’re a great way of creating a personal gift filled with the things they love. The beauty of making your own is that they can be as small or as extravagant as you like and make a really nice gift idea.

In the earlier post I featured ideas on the actual baskets, buckets or containers you could use. Today I have a few ideas on what you could include in hampers for mums-to-be. Let’s face it, when we have a baby the bubs get super spoilt so I’ve featured items just for mum for before and after the little bundle arrives.
