Yes, I know we're still in October, but now is the time to start thinking about packing a bit of Christmas care.
It helps that the stores have already started their spruiking, and there are quite a few interesting little goodies on display.
My local Kmart has mini plum puddings at $3.00 each, for example. There are the inevitable tins of shortbread bikkies (yum), including a small tin with Marilyn Monroe on it for just under $6.
The santa stockings full of chocolates and lollies, santa hats, and plenty more. I didn't take a good look, although I did snaffle a couple of the mini puddings. They weigh in at 127g each, which is a nice little mouthful.
I've not looked at tinsels and things yet - I will save that for the next couple of weeks while I scout out the merchandise.
In case you think I'm being premature, I prefer to allow around 3 weeks for a care package to get to its destination.
Feel free to offer suggestions, and we'll start up a post to share them.
