Are you at a loss as to what kind of gift to give? I think Gift Baskets take care of the "Don't Know What To Get" syndrome. Gift Basket ideas are unlimited. Basically, the sky's the limit with this one.
Examples of Gift Baskets-
Wedding-devotional book, candle, mugs or tea cups with coffee, tea, or hot chocolate, candies, bath soap, lotion, line with a large doily
Bridal Shower-cake mix, spatula, measuring spoons, measuring cup, icing, line the basket with a tea towel other ideas-cleaning supplies, paper supplies, spices
Birthday for young girl- hair accessories, writing accessories, socks, perfume, lotion, bath soap
Birthday for young boy-Matchbox car, flashlight, pocket knife, play dough
You could do a basket for a sick person with soup, word search books, magazines or books, even audio books. Anything that would occupy and keep the unwell person's mind off her problems. If the person is able to sit up to a table, a puzzle would be nice too.
Our church has a Travelling Basket. This basket has travelled from family to family with items of the giver's choice. Nobody knows when they will receive it. The items have ranged from snacks to children's items to dish towels. As far as I know, it is still travelling after two or so years.
