I recently created a gift basket for a sweet local lady’s benefit and it was a big hit. Since it’d make a great gift idea for the holidays, I wanted to share the idea as a part of my Michaels Makers’ December challenge. Purchase everything you need from Michaels Craft Stores and assemble or add a little DIY to make it a little more handmade.
Materials I used: Michael’s has an awesome gift selection, DIY/craft supplies AND so many great gift wrapping accessories too!
- Eat, drink & be merry sign (They were on sale the last time I looked!) or snag a beautiful picture frame or two and print the free printables provided below
- basket & shredded white paper filler
- two mason jar mugs
- green mason jar lids with straws
- Christmas ornament
- mini faux Christmas tree with burlap covered root ball
- regular or organic cocoa mix in a mason jar with chalkboard lid label
- optional: peppermint essential oil or peppermint schnapps, washi tape
More options: candy canes, marshmallows, holiday CD or movie, Christmas candle or homemade Christmas cookies.
