Inexpensive and Creative Christmas Gift Idea – Dinosaur Models in a Net
These days with Christmas rapidly approaching there never seems to be enough time available to personalise a present or to make something a little bit special for your young dinosaur fan. To assist our customers, here is some information on how you can create an inexpensive and novel dinosaur themed gift, one that would make an ideal stocking filler for Christmas – a “Dinosaurs in a Net Set”,
Presentation sets and gift sets of dinosaurs and prehistoric animals are always popular with young dinosaur fans. We at Everything Dinosaur sell a variety of such items, for example the “Dinosaurs in a Tin” gift set, twelve carefully selected plastic prehistoric animal models packed into their own dinosaur themed tin storage box.

However, for those of you who want to be a little more creative, here is an idea for your very own and unique dinosaur themed gift set – make your own “Dinosaurs in a Net Set”.
Simply, purchase a number of individual dinosaur models, there are lots and lots to choose from. At Everything Dinosaur we sell a number of ranges, supplying models singly, or in batches of five, ten or even twenty. Then next time you are out shopping pop into your local greengrocers (grocery store) and ask for a small plastic net. Greengrocers break bulk items into handy, smaller packs for their customers. They use small, plastic nets (usually coloured green), to pack items like onions, shallots, peppers and fruit such as satsumas.
If you are a regular shopper, most greengrocers would be happy to let you have some nets for free, or perhaps they may charge you a token amount. However, this is very much cheaper than having to pay for the cardboard wrapping and packaging with a shop bought dinosaur model gift set.
Once home, give the net a quick wash, if you want to, let it dry and then when you are ready to assemble your unique gift set – simply pop your chosen models into the bag.

You will find the plastic net expands and you can get more than a dozen hand-sized prehistoric animal models into it. Tie it up with a bit of spare ribbon, we found that red ribbon looked the best when used with a green plastic net. Don’t forget the gift tag, this is easy to add, just by simply looping the ties through the plastic netting towards the neck of the bag.
Viola! your very own, handmade and unique dinosaur model gift set. Your very own “Dinosaurs in a Net Set”, a personalised gift for your young dinosaur fan. All put together in a matter of minutes at a fraction of the cost of a shop bought gift set such as a plastic dinosaur play set.

This idea was sent into us at Everything Dinosaur, by a customer and we know that it has proved to be a big hit with those mums, dads and grandparents who have put together their very own dinosaur gift set for the young palaeontologist in their family.
