Inspiration needed again

Postby Woozle35 » Thu Oct 13, 2011 10:02 pm

My wonderful sil is 50 in just over a month, and I need inspiration of things to make for her. If I had money I would certainly be treating/spoiling her as she is a wonderful sister. unfortunately I don't, so therefore want to make something special. I have started to do her a photo book thingy from Oscar but lacking inspiration for anything else.

She lives i Scotland (not as if that's relevant) is a bit of a twitcher, loves gardening, no kids, loves cooking......hmmmm maybe an apron or that could be a Christmas Present. Would really love something special and different .

Any ideas?

Could you make her a wooden seed box with different compartment for her different seeds? Kind of like a keep sake box but made for her gardening things.

:doh: Rae why did I not think of that ages ago, that would have been a super gift, but dh does not have any time to do it before her birthday. Thank you but it will definetly have to be a non wood present.

Could you make her something similar to a Christmas wreath, table decoration etc, that way it's home-made & garden related?

maybe the seed thing but in fabric with little pockets, that you can hang on the backdoor or somewhere.

I think seeds really need to be in a airtight container type of box and I know she would have no where to hang it but thank you.

Any more ideas?
