    Default Ideas needed

    Hi

    I work for a community services org and live in an area with a high rate of homeless youth and adults.

    I'd like to make some personal products packs for Christmas as my way of giving back to the community.

    So far I've thought of items :
    Tooth brush and paste
    Soap
    Powder
    Face washer
    Tissues
    Shampoo and conditioner
    Deo


    What else could I put in ? I'm thinking of buying the small travel items you can get

    I'm looking at making 12-20 packs depending on items

    Undies and socks too.

    I pack similar gift boxes with my church and we always include undies and socks. Tampons and other sanitary items are useful too as well as razors and toilet paper (nice stuff).

    Good on you @Louise41 for your kindness.

    I think disposal hand and face wipes would be good - or even baby wipes for this purpose.

    something both DS & I often find we run out of - hair ties, or hair brushes/combs. I agree with others - what a wonderful thing you are doing xx
