    Create a Gift Basket

    Baskets are wonderful gift ideas! Create a useful basket that reflects the person's interest or needs.

    Have you seen the decorative basket assortments that are sold around the holidays? You'll generally find them in malls from such chains as Hickory Farmsor Sees Candies.

    Why pay $30-$50 for a basket of "goodies" that probably only costs about $5 to put together? Put the basket together yourself, save a fortune, and even add a bit more creativity.

    You can find baskets (straw usually works best) at any discount store or yard/garage sales. Then, simply line the bottom with a decorative cloth (ie: colored bandana, checked cloth, etc...), organize the appropriate items and trim/wrap with holiday decorations.

    You can find all types of holiday arts & crafts ideas in books at your local library or on the Internet. The possibilities are endless. Here are a fewbasket ideas to get you started:

  • Coffee Lovers BasketAssortment of coffees, mugs, stirrers, creme assortments, Sunday comics
  • Cookie BasketHomemade cookie variety, chocolate/fudge toppings, funny napkins, cocoa mixes
  • Traditional Jelly BasketSmall jars of homemade jelly, muffin/cornbread mix, spatula, butter & knife
  • Sweet Tooth BasketBrownies, cookies, small jars of candy, cocoa mix, peanut brittle, chocolates
  • Pasta Lovers BasketJars of various pastas and sauces, Parmesan cheese, pasta ladle, strainer
  • Fire Starter BasketPinecones, long stick matches, starter blocks, candle scents/oils, ash shovel
  • Gift ideas for baskets are endless possibilities. You can create a basket for anyone if you know their interests, hobbies, or needs.
