Of course, I needed a basket. You guessed it....I headed over to the thrift store for a perfectly good basket that I could spray paint to give it some holiday cheer. Even better--the basket I found was in great shape and already had a gold glitter finish...the really fun thing was I saw this exact same basket at Michael's for $16.99 and got it at the thrift store for $1.99!
Here's what I decided to include in the basket:
* Celestial Seasonings Tea
* Honey (made by the Ambrosia Company on the western slope)
* 2014 Colorado Calendar
*Hammond's Candy (Colorado based simce 1920)
*Peppermint biscotti (handmade by me)
*Colorado photo coasters (handmade by me)
So whether you're from Colorado or somewhere else, be proud to share gifts that represent your home state. It lets you "show off" your State and the out-of-towners will get a kick out of it!
I think this may become an annual tradition for our Indiana friend, so I'm glad I started a list ....I'll be able to refer back to it when putting together next year's basket. I want to be sure to send items that I haven't already sent to her and keep her basket fresh and exciting for years to come!
Happy Holidays and Happy Gift Giving!
