"Different" means different things to different people! Lately I make gift baskets. In the past when I received or won a basket, I made a list of all things in it, to give me ideas for making my own. They don't have to be expensive things but a good variety can be fun for the recipient as they find each item. You might want to put mostly food items such as jams, coffee, crackers, cookies, single serving pouches of something new to try. Or it can be themed around a central item, like a bottle of wine. It could be a comfort basket with candy, a magazine or a book, a date book, hot chocolate, maybe some personal care items in trial sizes, even a cozy pair of socks. I have a friend I am teaching to quilt so I made her a birthday basket with sewing and quilting supplies with fat quarters rolled up like straws. Baskets are so versatile and can be tailored to the person you are giving them to. Use your imagination!
