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! http://www.bukisa.com/articles/315979_getting-serious-with-gift-baskets-lets-start-with-the-basics.
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!
Today’s Gift Basket: I Hate To Cook Gift Basket
*A really good cookbook… maybe one for kids would be a good place to start. There is one out there right??
*new cookie sheets and muffin tins… I know that I hate when they get old and obviously need to be replaced.
* a candy thermometer… making candy is certainly more fun than cooking dinner
* a hot pot… or slow cooker. That just might make a cook/baker or whatever you want to call me lol
* a breadmaker… I have actually burned out three of them to date. Can you tell that I love them??
* flavored coffee
*margarita maker for obvious reasons
*gift certificate to her/his favorite restaurant… is there anything better than eating out??
* coffee mug
* Cookie Tin filled with cookies that someone else has baked
* coffee pot
*comfy throw to curl up with with a good book
*a scented candle for atmosphere
*floor pillows… just in case she decides that she’s finished cooking for the 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.
