I'm a bit late getting this organised, but I need some help getting some things together for a local women's refuge. I've been told a lot of people are no longer supporting this refuge, so really want to help out the best I can.
I need to know the cheapest place to find shoe box size boxes, but nice ones, or even larger, and some gifts and toys to go in it. The children are anywhere from 3 up to 12. I was thinking mugs, movies, perfume for the moms, or something similar. I'm already going to include some food, hot chocolate, and other little bits and will try to get to Home Bargains, and Poundland in the next couple of days to see what they have, but really want to get the best bang for the buck!
Ideally I want to make 12 of these boxes up, but I know I may not be able to get them all.
Can anybody help me by providing ideas or links to help me out? I've been told I have up till the 23rd to get it ready, but being a guy, and an over 40 one at that, my ideas may not be the best match for these Mom's and kids.
