It was Kayennat's idea, but as I was the one going into town that day, I bought everything and assembled it. Of course this is fully customisable, but here are some ideas of what you can put in it.
(Sorry for the bad photos. I only had my phone with me at the time.)
Hand cream- because no one can have enough hand cream right? From Boots.
And of course a mug. For the hot chocolate! From Muji.
Here we have some honey. From Selfridges.
Two postcards of her new home. From the street vendor on New Street.
Hot Chocolate. From Hotel Chocolat.
A lovely smelling Yankee candle. From Clintons.
Three chocolates from Hotel Chocolat.
Jam. Just because. From Selfridges.
Cookies. From Millies Cookies.
And the over all basket. Basket from TK Maxx. I wish I'd gotten myself one.
It doesn't take much to welcome someone into your family, a simple gesture, like this, or a cake, or a pie, or even a card will do. Especially if that person is leaving their family, their home, their city, to come to yours. So please, if you are having someone join your family, I don't mean a baby, but someone who is getting married into your family, make the time and the effort to properly welcome them. It's not much to ask!
Hope this inspires you guys.
