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

RE: Gift Baskets

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!!!


RE: Gift Baskets

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!

RE: Gift Baskets

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 :)

RE: Gift Baskets

I am new here to this site and so far I really like it
