Today will be packed with fun! I will be creating a budget friendly Christmas gift basket for my sister & thought I’d invite you to come along! I hope you find some great ideas for Christmas gift baskets for friends and family!
My sister recently remodeled her vintage looking country kitchen so I thought some kitchen home décor & storage would be in order. For this basket I’ll be going with a brown & blue color palette.
This antique looking crock immediately made me think of her, and it was discounted to $1.08! Can’t you just see this crock holding a fresh bouquet of cut flowers, small kitchen utensils, or pens on a desk?
One section I always frequent in the thrift store is the lighting section. Nothing seems to create that sense of homey welcome like the warm ambiance of lamp light.
Here I found a tiny pair of navy gold trimmed lamps. These were just darling! While I was in the store I browsed through the lampshades looking for a good fit. This was a bit like trying on hats!
Here were some of the options. I went with the pair of cream A-line shades. I can imagine these sweet little lamps tucked in a number of places! on top of the fridge, in the windowsills across the front of the house, in a bookshelf…
Here is everything! Some pieces I added from my stash as well. This will give her options for wall décor, storage, lighting, a couple textiles for decorating or projects, and some homemade cookies!
Since my sister lives out of state I will be shipping her basket in a large box. This means that there will be even more corners to tuck in a few more goodies…
I don’t know about you, but getting a package in the mail is such fun ~ so I tend to keep adding and adding goodies…! Speaking of goodies, the cute kitchen inspired chocolate tin inspired me to bake a batch of cookies to send along with the basket…
Homemade chocolate thumbprint cookies! Into the chocolate centers I pressed a salted almond for that sweet & salty flavor. I hope you enjoyed your visit today ~ I sure loved having you along! Until next time, take care.
Oh what fun this was and such a great gift basket. Cookies was an added bonus and looked so delicious .
Love it ,
Glad you enjoyed your visit, Mi Mi! The cookies were good… Thanks for stopping by!
