Sweet Baskets

When you know that someone has had a bad day or is experiencing something that would just make that person depressed or unhappy, then consider making care packages in the form of candy gift baskets. This idea can also be used for holidays, birthdays and other special occasions as you can customize the basket in any way that you want it to look. The basket can be made with any kind of candy that the person might enjoy, or you can coordinate colors for a special event, like black and orange for Halloween or pink and red for Valentine’s Day.

Before putting the basket together, you want to find the container. A basket with a handle works well so that you can easily carry the gift. Place a bit of paper at the base of the basket to hold the sticks that you can use for smaller candies. A candy basket is often made of larger pieces of candy instead of using a vase with smaller pieces. The larger items can be placed along the edges of the basket to provide support for the smaller items that you want to include.

When you place the candies in the basket, you want to secure them with a little bit of tape on the back or even a bit of glue that is easy to remove. If the weather is warm outside, you might want to consider using items that won’t melt. However, if you’re going to take the basket directly to the person and it will be inside a cool environment, then you could add some chocolate to the package. Full candy bars are ideal for a gift basket. Mix in a few smaller bars to close in the gaps between the larger bars. Even a few mints or lollipops could work to complete the basket. It’s not necessary to wrap the basket with any kind of plastic, but it does help to keep everything together. About 10 bars is usually sufficient when making a candy basket. Add a bow to the front or the top of the basket before delivering the sweet gift.

Notes for Moms

We had our Mother’s Day Celebration at Church today. One of the things that the children did, was to write love notes for their mothers. After the service, the moms were excited to check if there was a love letter waiting for them. Mothers were so happy reading their love notes. Even though kids don’t have a fine handwriting yet, but those notes truly touches their Mom’s heart.

A Blessed Mother’s Day!
