I’m feeling mighty creative after Melanie’s DIY post, and since it’s snowing here in Bend today it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! I may have sung that last line as I typed it too, or maybe I didn’t, you’ll never know.
I’ve had gift baskets on my mind ever since I discovered that my Goodwill has seemingly taken hold of ALL the gift baskets nationwide. If you’re not able to find at any your thrift store, you’ll know why. Have you ever seen so many in one place? Is there a basket manufacturing company here in Bend that I’m not aware of? Wow!
Ok moving on, I love gift baskets. I love giving them, receiving them, repurposing them, they’re just so much fun! My favorite part is that they can make for the most frugal and thoughtful gifts around. It’s very easy to put together a very nice gift basket for under $10 even for a large family! The one I put together up top was less than $10 including the basket and let me tell you I’d LOVE to receive that as a gift! If someone made that for me they would clearly know my heart, coffee and coupons. <3
So I’m curious…what are some of your favorite gift basket themes to both give and receive?
