    I am making up gift baskets for Christmas. I am doing kind of a "Spa" basket type idea. I am wondering if you think you would be happy to recieve this for a gift. The baskets include:

    Home Made:
    Aloe Lotion
    Scented Bath Salts or Foot Soaks (depending on the person)
    Honey Lip Balm

    Store Bought Gloves/Mittens- Hand decorated for more personalization.

    Home Made Peanut Butter Fudge

    Everything will have Personalized Labels. I was thinking of putting everything in a plain white gift bag that have been decorated to match the rest of the labels.

    So, what do you think?? And additions or ideas you can think of? With money being so tight this year, this may really help with my gift giving!!

    What a wonderful idea! Those people on your list who receive them should consider themselves lucky that you think that much of them to take the time to personalize each of their presents.

    I know I would be glad to receive something like that, especially the Home Made Peanut Butter Fudge, MMMMMM

    I'd love to receive that as a gift! I don't think you need to add anything else, but if the spirit moves you, other idea's could be a hand knit washcloth, and/or a homemade (or store/craft fair bought) candle. I guess soywax candles in jars are really easy to make.
