So what could go into this basket? Oh you would be amazed at the interesting little items that would fit this theme. Just be sure that you give yourself enough time to really find unique items. And you just never know where you are going to find them, so be ready.
There are lots of ways to package this basket. I have even written an article on the different types of baskets you could use. They can be found here. They range anywhere from a garbage can to a frying pan!
But to help you get started, I’m going to give you a list. Read it over and see if anything would appeal to “your friend” and then copy the items onto a sheet of paper and tuck it into your handbag. Every time you go shopping, read over the list to refresh your mind. But don’t be surprised if you find items that aren’t on the list. That’s half the fun of putting together a gift basket! And you will have fun!

*ironing board and iron holder
*Ironing System with Pressurized Boiler… now this has to work right… it has a boiler??

*poster of a woman ironing from the 40s (might not seem like such a chore then)
*comfy throw to curl up with with a good book

*floor pillows… just in case she decides the put off ironing for another day!
If you can think of any other items to go into the basket… just add away!
Be sure to tie off the top with a ribbon and then make a funny card to go along with your Gift Basket. Or you could wrap the entire “basket” in cellophane so that your basket follows a more traditional style.
