Thank You Gift Basket

Happy Friday to you all, hope you had a great week.  We have had a very busy this week, but this weekend should be a little more relaxing!

The weekend before we moved I wanted to do something for our neighbors.  They helped us with the play kitchen and I wanted to make them a gift basket to say thank you.  I was inspired by one of my favorite blogs, Everyday Occasions by Jenny Steffens Hobick.  Jenny made a beautiful hostess basket made of breakfast items.  I found  her basket to be simple, classy and perfect to make for our neighbors. Here is my version on her fabulous idea! Thanks Jenny for the inspiration to try something new!

Supplies I used:

1 Small basket (I had one on hand)

1 Kitchen Towel (I bought this one from Target)

1 Small box for coffee (I used a small clear chinese take out box)

Tissue Paper

Scrapbook Paper


Ground Coffee (I used Starbucks French Roast)

2 Tea Bags

Banana Bread

Parchment paper

1 stick of butter (I used Land O Lake)


 The Gift Tag

Using a fun font on Microsoft Word and printing my message on a white paper, I created my gift tag.  I used coordinating brown scrapbook paper (to match the towel) under the cut out circular note. I hole punched the two pieces of paper and tied the ribbon through.

Banana Bread

Here is a picture of the banana bread I made.  Join me on Sunday, I’ll be sharing this yummy recipe with you!

Gift Basket Finished

I wrapped the banana bread in parchment paper and tied with coordinating ribbon to match the gift tag. To add a hint of color and a little nature, I placed a fresh cut flower on top of the bread.  To display the coffee, tea and butter, I used brown tissue paper underneath to prop it up.

I loved how simple this gift basket was to make! After I gathered my supplies and baked the bread, it took 10 minutes to assemble the gift basket.  This gift idea is one I will make more often because of its simplicity.  I hope you’ll try it next time you want to make a gift basket for someone special!

Do you love giving or receiving gift baskets?
