Making your own personalized gift baskets is like a fun treasure hunt. We pull together special items for each recipient, stuff them into a basket or other appropriate container, and wait for the kudos to roll in! Making a gift basket is like putting together a Christmas stocking; always the most fun (and the most anticipated) part of gift-giving.
For this quick basket, designed for those of us who love to can and preserve food, I used the following items:
Mason Jar Apron: Reversible apron that will catch spitting jam and berry stains – and look good while doing so!
Canning and Preserving Journal: Don’t you wish you had your grandmother’s canning journal? Me too. Start a new family heirloom with a one-of-a-kind journal.
Ball Canning Jars: I absolutely love these Ball Special Collection jars – your gift recipient will too!
The Confident Canner: Things change and even if your Nana has been canning for decades, it’s always a good idea to stay up-to-date. This booklet covers everything from why pears turned pink to the latest on avoiding botulism!
Basket: I found this adorable suitcase-like container at Jo-Anns.
Other additions: Fill empty spaces with wooden spoons, jar labels, and pretty dish towels.
