Christmas is creeping around the corner and this weekend is your last full weekend to get holiday shopping done! We have been featuring DIY Christmas decorations and we have more DIY ideas for you! Day 10 of Great Holiday Gift Ideas is adding a personal touch to the classic holiday gift basket. All of the basket items can be purchased at a grocery store but making your own food items or items is encouraged!
Breakfast in a Basket
This is a great gift idea for a neighbor to bring them Christmas morning! The best part is everything is all there for them. Pick up a mixing bowl from Meanly & Son Ace Hardware, throw in a packet or two of waffle mix, a bag of coffee grounds and maple syrup. Viola! You have breakfast and a holiday gift all-in-one.
Gourmet Italian Dinner for Two
Feel free to splurge a little more on this basket! Pick up a strainer, a packet of organic pasta, jar of organic marinara pasta sauce, wedge of parmesan cheese, bottle of infused garlic or basil olive oil and garlic cheese bread. Don’t forget to add a bottle of wine! Grab a bottle of vino from Wine Time who has a large selection of local and import wines.
You can’t forget your friends or family who has a sweet tooth. This cupcake baker’s basket includes a mixing bowl, measure cups, whisk, spatula, cupcake recipe book and sprinkles. Hopefully they will let you try whatever they whip up!
