Can make “pacifier” out of 2 white Lifesavers.  Use frosting for “glue” and a pink or blue M & M.  Tie ribbon on “handle.”

Once you’ve arranged your items in a pretty way, wrap your basket in colorful cellophane and a ribbon. Don’t forget to include a card!

You can always send a care package of these items too.  Just pack everything tightly in a sturdy pretty box and include pretty tissue paper. Wrap breakables in bubble wrap—tie with a pretty bow. Remove any excess packing boxes your items may have so it cuts down on shipping weight. Don’t forget to include a personal note or card in your gift. Write address legibly and write “fragile” on the box too.
