Christmas gifts for extended family and friends are typically very hard for me.
I don’t want to buy random gifts such as coin counter or money clip for anyone.
Eyes will roll and they will be re-gifted.
I like making cookies and giving items (even if they are small) that people will appreciate.
This year, with the help of a few other bloggers, I made a Holiday Basket.
Almost everything in it was handmade and reusable.
The tags took about an 45 minutes and I made 10.
The glitter look is from a simple stamp and a glitter combo.
I found the tag, stamps and glitter at Joanns.
That adorable Antique Jug came from Pick Your Plum.
I “picked” up 5.
4 for gifts and 1 for me.
I figured I will use it later for pens…..
or maybe something else.
The basket and mini antique milk jug are my two favorite aspects of this gift.
I found the tutorial for the basket at Four Corners Design.
It’s surprisingly easy and Hardware Cloth is not expensive!
Now add all these things together and you have a really great and unique gift.
I later added a bag of cookies to each basket…
Holiday goodness all the way around.
