vintage gift baskets

More fun than the traditional hostess gift and something I love to put together for friends: vintage gift baskets.

Whether it is for a Christmas party, a birthday party, a housewarming, or a baby or bridal shower, it’s a little more personal and a lot more fun. I make each basket with the intended recipient in mind.

The basket above was made by me for my friend Elizabeth who was having her new home housewarming party. A perfect vintage tea pot, a cupcake cookbook, a beautiful and bright vintage table runner, all wrapped up in a hand made basket.

I found all the things and have been wanting to post about vintage gift baskets but couldn’t until I brought it to her housewarming party or it would have ruined the surprise!

I love making up these baskets and they couldn’t be easier to put together! I didn’t think these up, I learned from other friends who used to make up these fun vintage packages during Christmas. But I decided they could be fun for multiple holidays and occasions.

The personal touch with gift giving isn’t so hard. It just takes a little imagination. Try one next time you have an occasion that calls for a hostess gift !
