    What do you think of this gift idea?

    Advertisements
    Ive been brainstorming trying to come up with some inexpensive gifts for grandparents, aunts and uncles, and our cousins. I think I came up with something!

    I was thinking of making some hot chocolate cones ( like this Hot Chocolate Cones ) I could do all different kinds. Do the marshmallows with crushed candy canes on top, top andes candys, crushed butterfinger, lots of yummy stuff like that

    Put a couple of those in a basket with a coffee mug, and Ill make some chocolate covered spoons and put those in there too.

    For grandparents Ill put this ornament I found that I can press Carters handprint into.

    I really like this idea, but Im not sure if its enough.

    What do you think? Any ideas of small things I could add to the basket?

    I was thinking cookies but I would feel weird shipping them. Someone is going to get one big box of presents and will have to be our distributor.

    I shipped cookies in my Christmas Tins to my mom's last year and she passed them all out to the intended recievers....the only problem I ran into was putting Andes Mints in the tins and some of the cookies(even though they were wrapped and sealed) ended up tasting like mint. I learned a valuable lesson for this year!

    Most of the time, mint doesn't mix well with Snickerdoodles and Peanut Butter Kisses. LOL

    It's something heart felt and not expensive....I think it's a great idea but that's probably because I do it already

    you could get pretzel sticks and dip them in chocolate and then roll them in candy pieces or jimmies or nuts anything really....

    you could do little mini themed baskets... like find out what their favorite meal is include the recipe and the ingredients to make it
