    Default Various basket ideas

    Teacher's Basket - Fill a basket with fun pencils,
    reward toys, erasers, Post-It notepads, Award pads, etc.
    Decorate the basket with a +school+ theme -
    instead of ribbon around the rim, glue on a row of pink erasers,
    alternating with some cute large plastic clips.


    The Ultimate Chocolate Basket:
    A pkg of Hershey's bars, triple fudge
    brownies, better than sex chocolate cake,
    red velvet torte, chocolate
    truffles, German chocolate brownies,
    3 different types of fudge, chocolate
    syrup, yoo-hoo in the can, a few boxes
    of chocolate pudding, and chocolate
    covered pretzels, chocolate/fudge butter
    cookies, homemade hot cocoa powder
    and a box of cocoa krispies.


    The Backpack Basket" (five to seven years old)
    These items may be put in a backpack for the child, or the backpack and all
    of the items may be put in a box or a basket: Bookplates, with the child's
    name engraved on them (these may be purchases at most stationery stores),
    pencil box, three or four books suited for this age, a ruler, pencil
    sharpener, and last-but-not-least, a wallet with the child's own library card
    in it. You might include a note with the promise of a trip to the local
    library within a few days.






    "The Bottomless Pit Basket "(Twelve to Fifteen Years Old)
    Fill with snack foods of all varieties, gift certificates to local fast food
    chains or ice cream shops, a roll of quarters for vending machine emergencies






    "Driving You Crazy Basket" (Fifteen to Seventeen Years Old)
    Make a tag to resemble a license plate, and include inside: the keys to the
    car, a key chain, car wax, a chamois, a contract stating under which
    conditions the car may be driven, with blank lines for you and the young
    driver to agree upon and fill out, stating what will happen if the rules are
    broken, and a business size card on which you will write of your unconditional
    love for them. This card should be carried with them right alongside their
    drivers license.


    "Teacher's Pet Basket"
    Fill it with several big, polished apples, a calendar, notecards, pencils,
    paper clip holder, memo pads, post-it's, etc. (not mentioned, but gift
    certificates to a good book store are probably most welcomed by a teacher)

    This past year I made my MIL a "snowday basket" I put a cd of old Motown songs, nice pancake mix, jams, flavored pancake syrup, nice scarf and gloves and a nice winter theme cake server.
    I used a heavy rattan basket and made a huge bow out of plaid flannel and it presented so nice.

    Default Christmas Morning emergency basket

    This gift basket idea came from Martha Stewart's magazine.

    IYou package scissors, different sizes of batteries, film (for those without digital cameras), a sewing kit, wet wipes, etc. Things that you need but might not have handy in the excitement of the morning. Include a note suggesting to open it xmas eve or first in the morning.

    Smile Warm Me Up Basket

    I think this is a great gift idea.

    Line a large basket with a fleece "hugger" blanket, a mug, a book, homemade cocoa and coffee mixes.

    I've made gifts similar to this. I also added Adirondack-winter themed oven mitts, same decoration kitchen towel, and me-made cookie mix to the basket.
