I love giving gifts. Sure it’s fun to get them, but I enjoy coming up with an idea for someone based on their likes, personality, interests, lifestyle, etc. Gaining inspiration and putting together something you know they will enjoy, and get use out of.
Baskets are an easy way to go when deciding to gift give. Baskets can be filled with anything.
Here’s an example of one I recently gave my best friend for her 25th Birthday.
Let me explain-
My best friend is a teacher and has quite the busy, and at times stressful life. Sometimes she needs to slow things down and relax and get a better night’s sleep.
So keeping that in mind, I did some research on sleep hacks and things that would promote relaxation and put together this Sleep Hacks & Relaxation Basket with a Pamper Pouch.
Here are some close ups- so you can see exactly what I put in the basket.
Below is the note I rolled up and put in to explain what each item presents.
*I included a lot of Lavender/Chamomile items, because they often promote relaxation and easy sleeping.
The Basket includes:
When your basket is complete you can then wrap in a clear cellophane and add some pretty ribbons and bows. I unfortunately forgot to take a picture of that. But it’s simple enough, for you to get an idea of what I mean.
Baskets are so fun, you can make anything into a basket and you can get really creative and really personal with them. However, building them can vary in price. I mean you have to think about your budget and go from there. I tend to keep buying and adding and getting ideas as I go, so although the items I included were mostly reasonably priced, altogether it ends up being a pretty penny, but a well rounded gift. And my best friend’s reaction was golden. I enjoy putting smiles on people’s faces and making them feel special.
So if you are searching for a gift idea. Give basket making a shot. And have fun with it!
And next week I’ll tell you all about how I created a dress up trunk for my God daughter!
