Thirteen fantastic ideas to put in a gift basket:

1. Pretty napkins

2. Something baked (include the recipe on a decorated recipe card)

3. A china cup and saucer with a variety of teas

4. Fancy pens

5. Homemade cards or stationary (with a ribbon tied around them)

6. A journal

7. Unique/ inspirational bookmark

8. Your favorite book (only if you think the other person would enjoy it)

9. A favorite magazine or one the corresponds with a hobby the receiver has

10. Flavored syrup (for coffee or pancakes)

11. Homemade jam

12. Deliciously scented candles and a holder

13. Coupons for services like babysitting, house cleaning...etc (be creative! I had a friend who gave me a coupon for 2 hours of her time and it was a treasured gift to me.)
