    Default Pressie ideas for mums & dads!

    Hi mums & dads! Looking for your ideas and advice. My cousin's first child turns one in a couple of weeks, and in addition to gifts for her daughter, I was thinking of putting together a hamper for my cousin and her hubby - because they've had some additional stresses over the last 12 months (I won't elaborate here, but family conflicts, financial and housing) and gosh dang it, I just wanna treat them. They're a beautiful pair, but it's been a challenge.
    So I'd love your ideas on what could go in to a hamper for them. What did you need? What did you WANT? What would you have loved to receive that was about you, not so much your LO?
    (P.S. Not a parent myself, though hope to be one day soon! TTC#1!)
    Many thanks,
    MUG81

    A restaurant or movies voucher (and the offer to babysit)

    ETA that's so thoughtful of you 😊 I hope this year is better for them.

    Definitely the offer of babysitting, so we could go out together for a meal or a show. Time to yourself is precious when you have young kids!

    It's lovely of you to think of them - they'll appreciate it, guaranteed!
