Gift Baskets

{Written by: Jen}

Who doesn’t love a good gift basket?

My mom is amazing at coming up with awesome gift baskets. Like this one she made me for my 25th birthday.

Its contents:

  • A small chinese take out box with 25 birthday candles and 25 quaters inside
  • 25 Hershey’s Hugs
  • 25 Hershey’s Kisses

She cute-ed up, yes I just made up that word, the basket with a handmade paper bunting and a flower/pinwheel with a cute litte note that read…

25 Hugs and 25 Kisses

Close your eyes and make 25 wishes

(And if that doesn’t work, 25 quarters for the slot machine) ← Gambling is legal in Nevada

Needless to say; I loved this gift and still have the cute little flower pinwheel and bunting posted on my bulletin board in my office.

This gem she made for a friend that just had surgery. Her friend’s favorite color is red, so she found all that was red and threw it in.

Its contents:

  • Twizzlers
  • Cherry Chapstick
  • Original Pringles (for the red lable)
  • IBC Rootbeer (for the red bottlecaps)
  • Cracker Jacks
  • Cozy slipper socks

She covered a dollar store bucket in cute scrapbook paper and adorned it with flower applique stickers and red gingham ribbon. The base of the bucket is filled with paper filler and the items were neatly arranged inside.

Have you created or received a fun gift basket?
