Christmas Gift Baskets

Here are the Christmas baskets I made for this year.
I love the look of a simple bushel basket with just a little grosgrain ribbon trim.

Inside the basket is a simple mason jar filled with a Gem Cookie recipe. Attached is a scrapbook card with the recipe on the back (I have a friend who makes these for me every year, the picture really doesn't do it justice).

Lallie and I also made ornamanets, thanks to Stuttering Shell. They didn't turn out exactly the way I had planned, but they are still pretty. I am still debating on monogramming them but I think I like them simple.

Again, the basket itself has a gift tag (made by the same friend).

And then I topped it off with a couple little things from the Preppy Paper Girl. A popcorn bag (the others are red/white), green and white polka dot tissues and Christmas chapstick. Just cute little fun things.

For the girls in my office, I got these cute mugs, also from the Preppy Paper Girl, filled with hot cocoa mix and mini marshmallows. They both LOVE coffee and hot chocolate, so I thought this would be nice and then I can pin their gift cards to them.


  1. What fun! they are adorable. Wish I was getting one-only kidding. xoxo


  2. Oh my gosh they are too cute! I love them.

    Can you share the recipe for the Gem cookies?

  3. This is just the colors and items you chose!
