Homemade Holiday Gifts Part I-Baskets

specialty_gift_baskets-2So this year one of my goals is to make most of my Holiday gifts. I hate rushing like crazy to find that “perfect” gift. I would much rather make something for someone that truly means something. I was inspired by the baskets that D and I made for our reunion. So I came up with some great gift basket ideas for  friends and family!

1. Movie buffs- a DVD and some gourmet pop corn. You could even get them two tickets to the movie theater and offer to watch their kids 🙂

2. Relaxation lovers- fuzzy socks, tea, a candle and a good book.

3. Coffee lovers - a big coffee cup with a gourmet coffee blend, and some homemade muffins!

4. Music lovers – a Mixed CD made by you, a iTunes card, and a case for their iPod.

5. Wine lovers - a bottle of their favorite variety of wine, cheese, dark chocolate, crackers and a couple of wine glasses.

6. Garden lovers - a beautiful vase or pot filled with a variety of flower or herb seeds with some luxurious gardener’s hand lotion, gloves, and a pretty pot.

7. Baking lovers - a recipe book, some homemade treats and a baking tool to accompany the recipe book (i.e. a pastry book = pastry cutter, cookie recipes = cookie cutters etc.)

8. Winter theme  -  lip balm, moisturizer , mittens and hot packs for cold winter days!

9. Candle lovers – different scented candles and votive or tea light holders

10. Tea Lovers- teapot and tea cozy set, variety of mints and muffins or scones.

11. The Fitness Buff- A Yoga mat, a CD made with workout tunes, and some home made granola.

12. The Foodie- Some gourmet treats from Marshall’s or Trader Joes, a cook book, chocolates, all in a mixing bowl.

13. The Runner- Subscription to Runner’s World, Socks, Water bottle, Gu’s, gum, body glide, and some after running treats.

Alright I am sure there are more baskets for people out there. What are some of your ideas??

  1. If somebody just bothered to look for some simple target markting
    techniques and behaviorism’s of consumers then web marketing and SEO could be a
    great deal less troublesome and they might definitely save hard earned money by perhaps doing it
    on their own or trying to find a well-informed but low-cost provider to work on it
    for them.
