  • my sister puts together gift baskets for each person according to what type of person they are. She gets a spa basket together for my 19 yr old and my 23 yr old would get a treats basket with some lotions. The best place to go is the Dollar tree and buy 5 things for each person according to what reminds you of them. 5 things in a basket wrapped in a gift bag with curly ribbon. Cookie tins are nice and any good basket filled with homemade treats

  • I think im gonna make a list of the ppl and start thinking of basket ideas. Do u think it would work the same for a husband and wife basket like my husbands grandparents. Something in there for there sweet tooth and some things in there to make them both happy.

  • I love it. I would think in the future of exchanging names. It works so much better and less expensive.

  • & also when you make the gifts in the basket you can personalize it with each of there name so you dont mix them up
