Not really a deal. (Be nice it's my first post)

Great for a xmas hamper. I was just in waitrose and they are selling these wooden boxes, thought it was good for £5.00, looks really nice and a decent alternative to baskets which can be expensive.

Really nice idea thank you.
Lovely idea!
Wow, for £5 that looks like good quality, with the heart too it's perfect for hampers for Xmas. I find some are priced too high for rubbish quality. Heat

it really is good quality, I bought 2 and my wife sent me back in to buy 4 more!!
Love this box.

I might make a special trip to Waitrose for one of these. Could make a food / useful things hamper for my daughter as she is just moving out as she (they) have a new house of their own.

Could put dry food non perishable's and things like light bulbs, safety pins, screw driver etc in it.

Good fined.

Good deal if the crates are good quality and can be used for many different things.

Also thought it would be great when any of our friends have a baby, be nice to fill up with gifts for mum and baby

I have done 2 hampers with these and they look fantastic
Great for putting presents in a hamper for any occasion heat added and well done for your 1st deal X)
Love these
Just what I want for christmas - a crate full of straw
Thanks Optimushulk - will check out my local tomorrow. Made my first hamper last year - worked out much cheaper, with better quality, tailored, products.
Got these last year - excellent little boxes, used them for homemade xmas hampers for the daughters
Will have to try to get some more

£3.50 at my waitrose
Had these last year also for £5, made a really nice box for a hamper. It also included some shredded paper that looked like straw
I think these are nice for storage or a pet bed, but will cost quite a bit to use to make a hamper by the time you buy the stuff to put in the hamper, cellophane and ribbon to decorate it will all mount up. I think it would make a nice family food hamper though because you could shop around spending somewhere between £5 and £10 and it will be cheaper than individual gifts and more functional.

If you have any amazon boxes you can make a nice hamper as those boxes the flaps fold inward neatly and are strong. If you use tape to stick the flaps down, wrap the box in christmas paper, add tissue paper to line the box and the wrap in cellophane and a ribbon it looks nicely presently though the box will not be used for other purposes after.

Especially this time of the year when there's never any room at the inn.
REALLY, people actually pay £5 for that!!

£1 seems reasonable tbh
Wow super. I wonder if they'll have them in stock - local Waitrose in Oadby is a half-hour drive... oO

Where's the cellophane?
I got mine on ocado, crate and shred for £7, not sure if any left that was a few weeks ago
Does it say if it is sustainable wood?
These look lovely - shame no Waitrose near me.
anyone looking for something like these, b &m do a decent wicker style one which comes with hay, bow and clear plastic type wrap and a tag, £5 i think
