DIY gift baskets are some of my favorite presents to give to friends and family. Partly because I have a lot of fun putting them together (I’m easily entertained) but mainly because I think they make for more unique and personal gifts.
I was looking for some new gift basket ideas online yesterday and I came across so many gorgeous projects that I couldn’t resist sharing a few with you! I know some of them are not technically ‘baskets’ but I think this only makes them more interesting really :)
I’d also love to know – what would go in YOUR ideal Christmas gift basket?
This would make the perfect holiday hostess gift! For cheap lanterns, look to Ikea or your local bargain stores.

Nothing like a good coffee to start the day on high a note! You could also include a yearly subscription to your local newspaper.
