As August is here, one thing comes to mind – my super organized sisters who finish their Christmas shopping in July typically! Really. I used to be that with-it some time ago. 🙂 Anyhow, gift-giving season is right around the corner so we’re trying to gear up for gift baskets this year. Last year we gave gift baskets a try for our family members and it went over very well. Who wouldn’t love a basket filled with our local honey and hand-poured beeswax candles. I think the fact that you know the people making the products and the baskets really makes it special. Anyway, we have been looking at baskets here and there and online as well. Here’s a great one we like but it cost about $15 – no way we can go for that and charge our customers a deal. Mark researched around a bit but can you believe $15 was better than similar baskets found online?? But we did like that it had the nice lid, which would make a really unique container to receive, right? By the way, this is a tortilla basket used to keep them warm. We thought it’d be neat to offer a gift basket in a container that is so unique to South Texas. We’ll let you know how it goes. Mark found several great baskets online and we narrowed it down to three, which we’ll order and test drive. We look forward to developing a few gift baskets from which customers may choose. I love making gift baskets!
