Giving Baskets with Handmade Items

I save money on gifts by giving baskets with handmade items.

Example: Cookie making basket, including, cookie mix, sprinkles, cutters, couple of hot pads, wooden spoon. Put all items in a mixing bowl (or just a decorated box if money is really tight). Wrap in cellophane and add a bow.

Example 2: Pasta Dinner - put in serving bowl or pasta pot - pasta, pasta sauce, pasta serving fork, Bottle of Italian dressing, Garlic butter, Biscotti (whole box or 4-6 pieces). Wrap as above. (Nice gift for $5-$10)

Example 3: Breakfast Basket - Pancake mix, wooden spoon, jar of jelly, bottle of maple syrup, flavored coffee, a couple of bananas or other fruit of choice. (Wrap as above).

This is the idea I have been searching for! Because our family has grown so much, we have decided to give "Family" gifts this year and I just couldn't think of anything! Thanks for the great ideas!

I had an idea for a "Dinner and a Movie" basket. Dinner would be pizza (pizza dough ball, marinara, cheese, cut pepperoni) and a family movie like "Snowdogs" or something.
