Hey Awesome ones, I actually know how to make a pretty good looking gift basket for Christmas, a New Baby, Birthdays, Thank You’s and other gift giving events. I’ve actually made 100’s and they’re great as gifts but also as give away’s to charities, golf tournaments & other fund raising events in silent auctions. My first gift basket story will explain how I started making these beautiful gift baskets. It’s a craft but also a labor of love. Filled with chocolates & other items they are sure to please one or many in an office, family or group. Although this blog and our YouTube channel has viewers over 50 this DIY video on how to make gift baskets could appeal to men or women in their twenties, thirties or forties too. I find that making these can save you money if you’re on a budget and need to give gifts that impress. They’re certainly one-of-a-kind gifts and that much more special because they were made by you! (scroll down for some links to craft products) 

By the way… We were just accepted by Amazon and opened our new Awesome over 50 Storefront with my  *makeup, *fashion, *kitchen & comfy *home goods *Gifts for Her *Gifts for Him & more (here’s the link…)  or  (new items added to it weekly)
**Note: You still pay the same as what Amazon always charges, but we make a bit of commission, so THANKS for that!)

You’ve been asking for names and where you can get many of the products seen the videos, so here they are for this one.  They aren’t sometimes the exact match but below are some links of similar products in the video if you would like to browse and perhaps purchase some of them.  (**Scroll down to find the products…) If you do order online make sure you know any delivery costs for your country including any applicable duty. Look also at the upper right hand corner of the website and they may have an area to pick your country. A big “Thank You” if you do since we make a little commission on a sale and really appreciate that to help keep our videos going!
