Gifts from the Kitchen, Halloween Treat Basket

Halloween isn’t just for kids any more, a trip into just about any store these days will be sure to yield a lavish display of Halloween goodies for all ages

One of my friends recently had back surgery and I wanted to bring her a basket full of goodies to enjoy as she recovered

My original plan was to fill it full of lotions, and girly pampering products, but as I was shopping I found myself going in a completely different direction…

A trip to Home Goods harvested this cool metal “basket” with rope handles

My friend is fun-loving and down to earth,  and she has a great sense of humor… so instead of hand lotion and peppermints, yawn…

She got a witch mug, a ghost plate,  and caramel popcorn!

I also found an orange striped kitchen towel, pumpkin spice candle and a jar of sweet and sour jelly pumpkin candies that were too cute to pass up!

The towel lined the bottom of the basket and I filled the mug with Baileys Chocolate Truffles [Costco] and glittery faux mini pumpkins [Pier 1 last year]

The candle, mug and jelly pumpkins went in the bottom of the basket with just enough space to tuck in the plate, a bag of caramel popcorn and and a bag of candy corn M&Ms

I added some magazines behind the plate

and tied orange chevron burlap ribbon [Hobby Lobby]  on the rope handles

I also added some umbrellas and straws just for silliness

Sally is a very important person around here because not only is she a friend…

She is CC’s other grandmother!

And we need to keep our strength up, because CC is going to be a big sister next spring!!

It says so right on her shirt!!

Gift baskets are so much fun to make and if you don’t have a clue what to give someone, a seasonal basket is a great choice~

Thanks so much for stopping by!
