I am a firm believer that homemade is almost always best especially when it comes to gifts of appreciation. Last week I made two gift baskets for my husband to give to two of his clients. Both were themed to match their kitchens and included handmade potholders, embellished towels, Gift in a Jar mixes, and a covered baking pan. The red one I put in a collander and wrapped in a gift basket bag (found on clearance of course!) and the green I found a green metal tub in the left over summer stuff. Hopefully these items will be used for years to come.
