This year I wanted to make our gifts straight from the heart. I came up with 3 baskets that any man would be happy with. I did have my husband, dad and father-in-law in mind to inspire me.
I had my kids color on a sheet of labels and then I printed tittles on them to create the extra homemade touch. (Avery label # 22806)
1. Whiskey Infusion
I went to Fred Meyer and found this cool “vintage” looking box and drawer. Finding a cool “basket” is key.
Add a couple of rocks glasses and a shot glass and you have your self a party.
2. Saucy Grilling
At our house my husband and I share the grill so I thought a grilling basket would be a fun family basket.
I also included a seasoning salt I use on burgers, chicken, steaks and potatoes.
3. Soups On
Again I found this basket at Fred Meyer. I was looking for something homey and farmey.
This basket was inspired by my dad. As a child he would always have a cup of soup and maybe a sandwich for lunch, with a blanket while watching an old time movie. I made large batches of chicken noodle soup and chili with homemade croutons.
We went to a pottery painting place and I had both of my kids paint and put their hand prints on a mug for him to enjoy his soup out of.
