I made this gift basket a few weeks ago for my friend Kaitlin who turned the big 3-0. My intention was to give her something practical and fun, while incorporating the whole tuning 30 thing. She’s a crafty lady like myself, so whenever I give her gifts I try to make them creative, kind of like the teacher survival kit I gave her earlier this year.
I decided to make her a gift basket with 31 items…1 for good luck obviously. I wanted one item to be the main gift and then the rest to be small things that were useful.
The main gift was a new pair of Toms (she shares my obsession) and the rest were small items that I knew would make her smile. Chocolates, running socks, nail supplies, lotion, lip balm, headband, a hilarious book for teachers, soaps, gloves and more. In the card I gave her I provided a list of all 31 items with a short explanation next to each. Ya know, just to make her laugh.
You can create the gift basket spending as much or as little as you’d like, but most of all just make sure to customize it to your recipient!
