I LOVE baskets! I probably have WAY too many of them around my house. But GIFT baskets have been done every possible way I could think of so I decided to think outside of the basket. 🙂
It didn’t take long before my thoughts turned to JARS! I think I love jars ALMOST as much as I love baskets. 🙂 Particularly these versatile and inexpensive ones you can almost always find at your local Walmart. (These were $9.99 and $7.99 respectively.) I use them as containers for my homemade laundry detergent, flour, sugar, as a vase for flowers, I’ve even used them as a “punch bowl.”
Today, however, I am using them as a way to give simple, creative, and inexpensive gifts for lots of different people on your list! I initially was going to do just a few different ideas, but as I so often do, I took the idea a bit too far. Oh well. Hopefully my over-achiever tendencies will result in some added inspiration for someone. 🙂
“Orange” You Glad It’s Christmas?
Red and green are so predictable this time of year! 🙂 Add a little pizazz to the holiday with a splash of orange! Orange is such a happy color! This gift in a jar is limited only by your imagination (and the selection of orange items you can come up with.)
“Orange” You Glad It’s Christmas? II
I couldn’t resist creating this more “literal” interpretation of the “Orange” You Glad It’s Christmas theme. It doesn’t get much easier than dumping a bag of clementines into a jar and adding some twine. Beats giving a “box” of oranges (like I have many times before!)
