Cute Gift Basket Ideas
Housewarming Gift Basket
You know I’m all about home decor. So to gift a hostess with a basket full of home items is something I can do!

Relaxation Gift Basket
Do you know a tired momma, stressed coworker or hardworking friend who could desperately use a quiet evening curled up with a good book or favorite TV show?
Give them the gift of total relaxation — cozy hot cocoa, warm fuzzy socks, healing bath soak, a cozy blanket, Netflix gift card and a strict edict to not leave the couch under any circumstances (except to refill their mug, of course).
You could even throw in a free night of babysitting if you’re feeling extra generous.
