Create Simple Easy Gifts
The downside you give a gift and you just know they hate it! Unfortunately you can't always get it right because what seems the right and appropriate gift for you, isn't always right and appropriate for the person you are buying for.Take my mother for instance, if you don't buy her a gift say for Mothers Day you will be in the bad books for weeks. Now before you agree with her, let me ask you this "What do you give someone who has verything"? If you could walk around this ladies house you would understand my problem!
Well over the years I have learnt how to stay in her good books by creating something different and unique every year. I also like to make it a gift that I make, so its personal and comes from the heart. Yes you guessed it ...... a "gift basket".
Gift Baskets can be all shapes and sizes, you are only limited by your imagination and of course your budget. A gift basket doesn't have to be big and elaborate it can be something small. Presentation is the key to a stunning gift basket!
I have always struggled with "creative talent" so when I discovered that making gift baskets was very simple, I became a talented person over night!
I give "Gift Baskets" for all occasions - from Christmas to Marriages, Arrival of a New Baby, Birthday Gifts for Boys or Girls, Leaving Party in fact the reasons are endless.
For a boys birthday, how easy is it to get a bucket, spade and sand digging equipment. A cool towel, hat or cap (write their name on the hat to give it a unique look), a stick of sunscreen or zinc cream. Then wrap it up !!
For a girl, they love lots of knick knacks or things they can make. Try putting together packets of beads in a container with compartments. Include some wire and hooks. Your local craft store can help you with the items required. You can create this "Gift Basket" for less than $15.00 and they love it !
When you are finished, wrap the Gift Basket with cellophane paper and a nice ribbon to give it a finishing touch. Use shredded paper inside the basket to hold the goodies in place. Tie a humorous gift tag with a message for that added touch.
Gift Baskets are easy to make and lots of fun!
