How to Create Homemade Gift Baskets

Put your imagination to work! Imagine giving a gift that reflects the whims or fancies, personality or passions of the person receiving it. Put away those old tired gifts and create something they will truly love.

What would they really like to receive, what do you give the expert gardener, the fisherman, the golfer, the book reader? Make them an original theme gift basket. Full of goodies they really can use.

In a basket of your choosing, add some exotic teas, strainer, china tea cup or mug, shortbread biscuits, napkins, sugar (wrap it in cellophane and tie a ribbon around it), book about teas, flowers etc.

The Fisherman

Add a bag of fishing tackle (hooks, lines and sinkers), a fishing magazine, a fish smoker, you can even throw in a can of sardines for the fun of it.
