All That Glitters Is Not Gold

Only in this case, it is.

In March, Mick's auntie and uncle will be celebrating their golden wedding anniversary, that's fifty years of marriage. I remembered reading The Stash Basket blog and thinking what a great idea it was to create a hamper full of all things gold as a golden wedding anniversary gift, so this is what I'm going to do.

I've already started buying a few things.

Box of Terry's All Gold chocolates, Gold biscuits and golden vegetable savoury rice.

Gold coffee and Gold Label tea.

Gold chocolate coins.

I've got a whole shopping list full of gold items yet to collect so it should be a decent sized hamper. I hope they like it.


  1. Aw that's a lovely idea, it's so thoughtful. :)

  2. What a fantastic idea! You could also make a compilation CD of "Gold" songs will have a think! If you need a card give me a shout - I have lots of "gold" bits n bobs could soon knock you one up - no charge cos I like you! Dxxx

  3. What a really lovely idea. xxx

  4. That's a lovely idea ... wish I'd thought of it a few years ago when it was my parents' golden wedding!xxx

  5. My parents loved their hamper and still talk about it - I think they ate almost everything, but drew the line at some Golden Linseed Bread (Wwhich in all honesty did look pretty rovolting!) Good luck in your search!

  6. What a thoughtful idea, and it'll be interesting to see all the items that you fill it with. Flighty xx

  7. A brilliant idea Jo! Happy gold hunting!


  8. Such a great idea and so original!

  9. A compilation CD of 'gold' songs is a great idea, Denise, definitely one I'll use. Thank you for the very kind offer of making a card for me, I'll give you a shout if I get stuck.

    I'll be sure to post a picture of the hamper when it's complete. I'm enjoying shopping for it.
