DIY Personalized Gift Basket for girlfriend,sister,mother

DIY gift basket for a personalized Christmas Gift to a Girlfriend, Sister, or Mother
Sometimes purchasing just one Christmas gift for a special girlfriend, sister, or mother is not as personalized as you would like, or does not quite seem to accurately express your love for her. For these times, the only thing to do is a "Do It Yourself" personalized gift basket. Then you will have the gift exactly fitting to the person that you want.
Before you get started on your DIY personalized gift basket, think about that special lady in your life whether a mother, sister or friend. What are her interests, hobbies, or current events happening in here life? Is she going on a Christmas vacation to an exotic island, on a cruise, on a snow-filled Christmas ski trip? Has she recently moved into a new house or will soon be relocating to a new city or town.
The written word may be the thing for your special lady is drawn to. Preparing a basket to help her enjoy that escape may be just the right gift. Giving her a gift card to a bookstore is just the start for this present. Think about the essentials to make an evening curling up to a good book an event and not just something to do. Combine the gift card with some fragrant tea, an embroidered fleece throw, a personalized hazelnut candle, decadent chocolate, and a monogrammed book mark. Add anything that would enhance her enjoyment of her favorite pastime.
May be your friend is all about traveling and experiencing the world. You can make her travels a reminder of your friendship by giving her accessories to wear along the way and travel goodies to use. If going to the beach is wear she frequents you can’t go wrong with a monogrammed shell pendant and earrings to go with her surroundings, and embroidered baseball cap to keep the sun out of her face, and an extra large embroidered beach towel. Don’t forget after sun care cream and an embroidered bath wrap to end the day with. Think about where she visits most and make your gift selections to match.
Your mother or mother-in-law may be a great hostess and throwing the perfect party is her thing. Maybe she is a socialite and loves attending charity events. Help her be the perfect hostess with a gift basket full of entertaining pieces such as an engraved cutting board, engraved acrylic pitcher and serving tray, napkin ring holders, and scented monogrammed soap to adorn her guest bathroom. For outings to dinner parties, the opera, or fancy restaurant great classic jewelry pieces such as a monogrammed sterling silver ornate pendant, sterling silver round ring, and a monogrammed sterling silver thin wide cuff bracelet are a great way to help her complete her elegant nighttime look. She will feel special and stand out at her events with your special touch.
You can’t go wrong with giving your sister or mother family remembrance items.

Put together a video with special family memories, handmade Christmas ornaments or framed children’s artwork to give your loved one to help her remember family even when they are away. Making a special effort to remind her of her families love will touch her heart and yours… A DIY personalized gift basket will definitely touch the heart of your special friend, mother, or sister, and rest assured that they will remember your gift this Christmas.

Activities and Changes

Quick Update. Life is busy with two toddlers. I rarely get a chance to collect my thoughts, let alone post them. Our boys are growing up doing lots of things. This fall we have been busy with activities and changes. Justice started preschool after Labor Day and has thoroughly enjoyed it. I am so glad I decided to send him. He has gotten so much out of it. His speech has improved and has greatly diminished his "Justice talk." He loves his little classmates and teacher Miss Donna. He talks about going all the time. He has learned songs and has solidified his colors. Days when he goes gives me an opportunity to spend time with Titus and run errands with him. We have gotten our tags renewed, taken Titus' portraits, gone to the grocery store, Target runs, etc. It is good for Titus to have some time to enhance his speech. He is not very verbal yet and we are focusing on getting that going. Titus is however very smart and mechanical. He loves to figure out how things work, take things apart, stack them, and put them together. He is loads of fun to watch. We have also taken a Mommy & Me Music Class on Mondays where both boys have really gotten a lot out of. Titus particulary loves the hand movements like Itsy Bitsy spider and Five Fat Peas. Justice loves the action songs like the Trott Trott song, humpy dumpty, and jump Johnny Giraffe where we march around the room. We will end class this Monday, but start up again in January. The boys have enjoyed it so much. We also started Justice in a Start Smart Soccer program, which ended up being more work than I anticipated. He really wasn't quite ready for structured sports. The program consisted of running drills with mom/dad's direction. He participated about 50% of the time, mostly he wanted to point out the planes flying over, playing with the sister of one of the children, and running around. But, it was a good time to get him out and get some exercise, but I think he needs another year before I get him involved in anything like that again. He did get a certificate and trophy to keep. Both boys had their first Dentist appointments which both went surprisingly well. Titus didn't want to let the hygenist look at his teeth, but the dentist had me sit Titus in my lap and put Titus' head in his lap and he cleaned his teeth with authority. They are really good with working with little ones. Justice did awesome, he let them brush his teeth with the special toothbrush and floss as well as do a little scraping too. Titus had his second urinary surgery this past week and hopefully his last surgery EVER! I hated having him go through that and the pain afterwards was worse than the first time. Changes to come soon include a new church, new addition to our home with a sunroom and extra bedroom, and a new addition to our family. Yes, I am expecting our 3rd little one in June/July. I am excited and feeling good so far at 5 weeks. It is a surprise, but a good one.
