    Foodtvfan- Love your idea for the apple crisp basket and wish I had thought of that last year. Check out Apple Crumble in a Jar and the photo - I made this last year for goody baskets. I never thought of packaging it with a dish, apples and any tools needed to make it, but I think that is an awesome idea. Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

    Love these ideas; being from wine country I'd really like to come up with some ideas for wine baskets.
    What about a bottle with wine and any of these: a good corkscrew, a couple of pretty wine glasses, beautiful napkins, wine charms (HOW TO MAKE WINE CHARMS ~ EASY) and a wine stopper (EASY WINE STOPPERS)
    Fill in the basket with:
    Herbed Goat Cheese Spread (will need to be refrigerated until gift-giving), with
    Swedish Hardtack - Knackebrod or Beaten Biscuits
    Wine Jelly
    Oreo Truffles


    Love those ideas and I'm off now to check out the wine stopper and charm links, I LOVE those ideas

    GIFT WRAPPING IDEAS
    •Photocopy a collage of family photos on paper and wrap smaller gifts with the copy or glue to a pretty box for a keepsake.

    •Use old Christmas cards for your gift tags. Cut out rectangles from the old card fronts, fold in half, punch a hole and attach a piece of raffia or a skinny silk ribbon to tie it to a gift bag or tape it to a package. Or one-hole punch in the corner and tie to gift; write to and from on plain side.

    •Wrap kitchen, tea, coffee or cooking related gifts in pretty tea towels, or if you are buying kitchen gadgets for someone place them in an oven mitt and tie a gift tag to it.

    •Garden related gifts can be placed in a pretty flower pot and wrapped with colored plastic wrap, fabric or tulle. Gather at the top and tie with a matching ribbon.

    •Place a small amount of rubber cement on the back of seed packets; allow rubber cement to dry; stick the packet to a gift bag or card for a neat gift.

    Here is how you can make a personalized
    GIFT JAR LABEL
    What you will need:
    •a creative software program like PrintMaster
    •printer
    •plain paper for drafts
    •Avery label ((2-1/2 x 3-1/4 inches for a standard pint mason jar)
    •clean, glass jar with lid
    •scissors or paper trimmer
    •jar of contents as desired
    •ribbon
    •fabric embellishments

    1.Measure the jar to determine the size label needed
    (2-1/2 x 3-1/4 inches is good for a standard pint mason jar).
    2.Create a new label document in the software using the template provided for the label size you are using. Name the document and save it to your file.
    3.Add clip art images, text, borders and other elements to your design as desired. Save document after each step.
    4.Print a draft copy of your design to proofread.
    5.Cut out draft copy and check it against the jar for fit, readability and other design details. Make any necessary corrections and proof again as needed.
    6.Print It! When you are ready to print the final label, adjust print settings, load chosen label into the printer; print.
    7.Finish It! When the printed label is completely dry; trim it to size if necessary.
    8.Peel off the label and attach in the desired position on the jar. Press down all over to secure.
    9.Fill and embellish the jar as desired.
    10.Cut a circle of fabric the size of jar lid plus enough fabric to cover the entire lid with extra overhang with pinking shears. Tie the fabric circle on the jar with a piece of ribbon or raffia.

    I did something similar to this for my niece's wedding shower and it cost me about $20 but looked super expensive. I included red and black oriental placemats, won ton soup bowls, ceramic (Chinese) spoons and some nice oriental sauces from the grocery store etc. I wrapped it in cello and used a bow with chopsticks through it for some oomph. People went crazy over it because it looked so sharp but it was so simple to do. Then I separately wrapped a non-stick wok to go with it which I bought half price at Sears. She loved it.

    You have some great ideas, please keep posting them.

    The wok would have made a nice container for the rest of the items, too. icon_smile.gif

    Yes, however, it was a non-stick pan and I wanted to avoid scratching the coating. My "container" was a large white square bowl which was really cool too.
