Gifts from the Kitchen, Winter Basket and a Special Sale


For years I volunteered at an organization that raised money for a local children’s museum and the main fund raiser was selling Valentine baskets

Every year we put bought items in bulk for 5 different baskets, geared to children, teenagers, women, men, and deluxe baskets for anyone.  It took weeks to assemble these hundreds of baskets, but it was such fun, and many lasting friendships were made…




Thus started my love of gift baskets, assembling personal baskets for all occasions, shopping for special items and something to pack them in…




My children always get baskets for Valentine’s Day, last year I filled red and white baskets from the Target $ bin with BBQ and manly items for the guys, girly things for DD, and small heart baskets of treats and toys for the kiddos




The fun is in the shopping!




Just pick a store and get creative!  The above gift items came from Trader Joe’s, secured with tape and twine and wrapped in a kitchen towel





I was shopping in Home Goods one day and found so many cute snowman items, they inspired me to put together a snowman themed basket for a special friend and her family




Snowman chocolates, cookie mix with cutter, shortbread bites, winter pasta, snowman cupcake mold,





Snowflake sprinkles, buttermilk pancake mix, chocolate cocoa, raspberry syrup




Even an adorable snowflake ceramic bowl




All tucked in a cute chalkboard tag basket and tied with a festive ribbon
