Gift Baskets

Here are some of my gift baskets that I've been working on.

Chocolate Lovers

Coffee Lovers

Tea Lovers

It's A Boy

It's A Girl

I'm still planning on making "Friendship", "Cat Lover", "Dog Lover", "Sports Lover", "Old Age" and House Warming" ones. They won't be in time for Christmas but I hope to sell them all year round. In some I am incorporating some of my gag type items like the Sports Dammit Doll, Friendship seeds, Spools of Friendship, OTH Voodoo Dolls, Survival kits, etc. On the back of each one I am adding a laminated card with a poem or saying or something specific to the theme printed on it. As an example here is what I am using for the cat one.

Cat's Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep,

I pray this cushy life to keep.

I pray for toys that look like mice,

And sofa cushions, soft and nice.

I pray for gourmet kitty snacks,

And someone nice to scratch my back,

For windowsills all warm and bright,

For shadows to explore at night.

I pray I'll always stay real cool

And keep the secret feline rule

To NEVER tell a human that

The world is really ruled by CATS!

Anyone have any other themed basket suggestions?TIA

Fantastic baskets - I'll take 10 of those "CHOCOLATE" ones right now!!! The cat poem is excellent - that's my kitty, the "cushy life," - he's got it better than I do!!!

Thanks Sal! Funny thing is that with all the chocolate lovers
like you out there you would think that I would have sold 1,
no such luck. I did however sell the tea lover one. Go figure!

What fun! How about a gardner's basket, or an herb gardner's basket. Some Sweet Pea seeds, an "I'm out back" sign for the front door.

Great idea :)
