How to make a Gift Basket

How do you say thank you, when a simple card just won’t do?  I wanted something thoughtful, but not over budget, so I decided my best bet was to make a gift basket.  I already had most of the supplies- but you can find a basket like this one at Michael’s.  I spent less than $25 at Trader Joe’s for all the goodies inside.

If I didn’t have to drive more than two hours to deliver it, I would have preferred to add cheese or maybe some dessert, but I needed something that wasn’t going to go bad.

You can’t go wrong with pineapple salsa, and a friend of mine recommended the peach champagne for mimosas! I’ll let you know how that goes.

I used tissue paper to fill the basket, and picked up plastic wrap for 99 cents at Michael’s.

ta da! Less than 5 minutes to put together and this gift was ready to go.
