You know me – I love creating gift packs! Here’s a gift pack idea for Christmas. Gather: baskets, shredded paper filling, and locally sourced treats.
What’s great about giving gifts in baskets is that the recipient can either use the basket in their home or reuse the basket to give a gift to someone else. I had a few red baskets that I was previously using for craft events but was ready to give away.
Here are some tasty items I found locally!
Siren protein snacks made in San Francisco. These are plant based, gluten-free, and non-GMO.
Covered almonds by Feve Chocolates, also made in San Francisco. They give 5% of their profit in micro-loans to cocoa farmers. Hubby and I picked up an extra pack of the chai spiced almonds for ourselves – yum!
Jamnation jams are so delightful and punny. They were my booth neighbors at the SF Etsy Indie Holiday Emporium last year and they let me try all the flavors.
Wineforest Wild Foods rubs from Napa. Don’t the flavors sound exciting!
Tea blends by White Sage Wellness. These are perfect for warming up on cold winter nights.
Let’s build a basket! First, get a good helping of paper shreds in the basket and fluff them up. Then start by including the larger items. Make a ‘nest’ for each item and fluff the paper as you go.
Add smaller items in the front.
I also like to add a handmade element (I added some mini wreath ornaments) and a card (I got these cute Maligayang Pasko cards from local favorite Genevieve Santos).
