Gift Idea - Christmas Gift Baskets

A friend of mine had a home business making Christmas gift baskets that contained pre-mixed and packaged dry ingredients and recipes for baked goods.

This got me thinking about the possibilities for making my own Christmas gift baskets. The dollar store has a lot of baskets and craft supplies, like tissue and plastic wrap and bows... Then it would simply be a matter of deciding how to fill them.

There are the traditional gift basket themes:
  • Baked goods
  • Tea and coffee
  • Sweets
  • Toiletries

Then there could be customized themes to suit each person:

  • Craft supplies
  • Photos on disk, with an album and some frames
  • Gift certificates

The possibilities are endless!

If you're doing more than one basket with the same theme, you can buy your contents in bulk to save some money (it's kind of like making really fancy goodie bags ;-)

One thing is for sure - they would be as much fun to make as they would be to receive.
