Creative Gift Baskets from your kitchen, put together a gift basket for those you love!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Today we are offering something a bit different. Let's talk about Gift Baskets. Gift baskets are fun to receive, and they are just as fun to make. You can make a gift basket for a loved one or to simply say thanks. Keep in mind you don't necessarily need an actual basket, this is the perfect opportunity to get creative and use what you have available. Vintage items make great containers for food gifts.

Creative Guide to great gift baskets, homemade from your kitchen!
Creative Gift Baskets, put together a gift for those you love.

Gift baskets are easy to tailor to the individual you are gifting. For the food lover, a large basket containing several selections both sweet and savory is a wonderful gift.  A larger basket with many selections is the perfect size for a family gift. And a smaller basket with a couple of selections is the perfect thank you gift.

Gifting delicious food is always a good decision. Commercially prepared gift baskets are big business and for the actual food in the basket, very expensive. You can make a much better basket and it will be made with delicious homemade food that you know the recipient will enjoy. Here are a few suggestions from our kitchen.

Here are a few suggestions for sweet treats to fill your basket:

Pretzel Toffee
