I think so, either fill it with stuff for my mum and dad throughout the year or my son.I hope I have the presence of mind to do this because it's such a nice idea. Are you going to re-use your M&S boxes as I was thinking of doing?
I made one for someone a few years ago.
I got some Christmas craft papers I think they were 6x6 , rolled one edge and stuck it down, then stuck one edge down, popped a gift in the' tube' then stuck the open edge down in the opposite direction to the other end. It's hard to describe but it was like a triangle tube. I used a hole punch to put a hole in a corner and used ribbon to attach it to a Christmas garland. I stuck number stickers on and gave it to her as a pick you up as she finished chemo.
Even if I say so myself, it was quick and easy to do and looked great.
