I've decided to do a gardening theme gift basket for MIL this year. Found some additional ideas for her basket since she is pretty well setup on tools, seeds, etc. New ideas are: fingernail brush (for scrubbing that dirt!), new kneeler pad (these wear out and she could use a new one), fun watering can (she keeps a lot of plants indoors too so will look for a small one), rain gauge, plant markers, herb scissors... I've decided to do an Italian Basket for 3 families - at least two of them I will make up a lasagna - frozen or just ready to bake - in a foil pan to pop in the basket or just to be delivered at the same time. I also plan to make some homemade bread with Italian twist - Cheddar and Herb Bread - I can have loaves baked and frozen ahead of time then just take out and thaw as I'm ready to assemble final basket for gifting. For one out of town BIL and family I'm thinking I'll do the Christmas Ice Cream Sundae "basket" - although since it will be shipped I'll probably do a pretty box instead. For the twins in CO I am thinking of doing a candy making "basket" for one and a cupcake making theme for the other. I think they are just getting to that age where some fun supplies could really spur some excitement to play in the kitchen. Confirming with their mother first though. Once again, since shipping I'll do pretty boxes - where you line the outside and inside with paper, etc. Still brainstorming on what I may do for others on my list!
