while travelling on vacation last week I was able to crochet a few more wash cloths for my Christmas gift Baskets. I was also able to find really nice spreading knives to go with them so the gift baskets are coming along quite nicely. so along with the preserves they will each receive a spreader knife & a washcloth . Any other ideas on what I can add to the baskets? I will be adding a fsl Christmas ornament to each basket as well but after that I have no more ideas of what to add so any suggestions are welcome......maybe a bowl for the squash soup?

Love it! How about gingerbread cookies? Shortbread?
Homemade jam, if you have any? Oven mitts or pot holders?
Can of mixed nuts?

Great job on the crochet, and sound like you have enough ideas but how about some spice tea mix or hot choc mix (the kind you make yourself and put in one of those cute half pint canning jars.

oh yes and some might like licorice???

Maybe add some shortbread biscuits or chocolates. Everyone loves chocolate, well most do. Are there any kind of biscuits/cookies that are nice to put your jam on? perhaps some of these. Or a box of special flavoured tea?

I think your baskets will be overflowing with everyone's ideas.

well I was thinking about homemade bread? I like the idea of a box of tea that sounds just about right! thanks ~hugs~

what kind of basket do you use for this project?

by sewilso 02 Oct 2014

Do you have spare canned goodies you did this summer, like a jar of jam for a special person or family?

pldc by pldc 02 Oct 2014

Yes indeed that is the beginning of the gift baskets. I thought since there will be jams the knives would be good spreaders.......... the wash cloths to wipe up after having this snack with jams lol
