Ok I've got one present to go. I'm making a hamper for my dad with crackers, cheese, olives, wine.
Need some more ideas on other items to add??
What can I put the stuff in?

quince paste goes well with cheese and wine. If you can buy them the day before and keep them fresh grapes would be nice too.
You could always put the cheese in the bottom of the hamper in a cool bag (the foil lined ones they put BBQ chicken in or the ones they use at the pharmacy for fridge stuff would be good. I'm sure you can get them from the supermarket. Failing that, wrapping them in foil and putting an icepack in the bottom should suffice. A blue bag would be a bit big) and arrange the cracker packets et al on top so everything stays fresh.

Nice loose tea leaves (like from T2) with tea infuser
Toffee or nougat
Magazine or a good book

I'm making one for Mum. I've got shortbread, blue cheese, cheddar cheese, gourmet chocolates, some top grade prosciutto and chorizo, truffle oil, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, chutney, chermoula rub, relish, mustard, boiled lollies, spiced pear paste & marmalade. All the bits and pieces are "gourmet" stuff. And it's a bit of a hotch potch rather than a strict chees/wine hamper because they're her fave things and her partner loves to cook so will use the ingredients.

I am doing one for my 88 year old widowed grandfather who doesn't drink and is a type one diabetic (so grog or chocolate etc is out).
I have rice packets (the ones where he just has to microwave them), slow cooker recipe packs, mustard, gherkins, diet jam rolls, two fruit packs. I have made a some individual sized diabetic friendly fruit puddings, plan on making basil pesto tomorrow. There is more in it but cannot remember what.
