Gift Basket Ideas

When one of my friends has a special celebration I love to find something they really like and create a themed gift basket.  I always try to add something handmade.  It's fun for me and they are always a huge hit!  This past spring a friend of our family's graduated from high school.  She started cosmetology school this summer to become an esthetician, so I created a basket with fun skin care products for her.  This basket included three wash clothes with a rose applique on each and a hand towel with a three tier ruffle.  Check out the pictures below!

A couple of years ago I made a friend a cupcake-themed basket for her wedding shower.  She loves to host parties and do lots of baking, so I made a basket liner trimmed with jumbo-sized, pink ric rac.  I appliqued it with the initial of her married last name and a cupcake complete with sprinkles (glass beads).
