Gifts With Thought
Spreading Christmas joy is fun for the holiday season. It seems like there’s more magic in the air when you give gifts that you make yourself. Whether the gift you make includes food, candles, books, or money, gift baskets are an option to consider. A benefit of this kind of gift is that you can put it in a clear jar, a box, or a bin that can be used by the person you give it to instead of being restricted to using a basket. When you begin putting your basket together, consider the age and what the person likes so that you include something that will be enjoyed. Try to add a few personalized touches as well, such as something with initials on it or a gift that’s a favorite color.
A tackle box can be transformed into a craft kit for kids or someone who enjoys making crafts. Put different craft supplies in each compartment of the box. If you use a clear box, then wrap it with a large bow so that the person can’t see what’s inside. You can also put craft supplies in a jar for someone younger who is just getting started with writing and drawing.
There’s nothing like giving a gift that can be used each day. A basket with items for the kitchen is ideal for a man or woman of any age. It can include items that the person enjoys eating or drinking or things that can be used while making favorite foods. An example would be a baking basket with measuring cups and a few cookie cutters or a jar with the ingredients to make a sweet treat, such as cupcakes or cookies. Have fun creating the baskets that you give. When you think about what you include for the person who will get your gift, then the holiday season usually has more meaning.
