Having been born in Indiana, most of my family still lives there while I live in South Carolina. With cellphones and Facebook this normally isn’t a problem, however, when life gets busy it can be hard to find time to make that call or check in on Facebook. When I realize that I have let life get ahead of family I like to make-up for that by putting together a “Thinking of You Gift Basket” full of things that I know the person needs/loves. I wanted to share a recent one I put together with you.
When they announced that Star Trek was releasing a set of Pop Vinyl’s with Funko I knew I had to get this particular one for a gift basket that I was planning. The person that this is going to loves them some Data so combining that love with something that the Hubs and I collect was a no brainer.
A movie to watch is always something I like to include in a Thinking of You Gift Basket. This is like an incentive for them to just sit down and relax. I always make sure to get one that is either new or that I think the receiver will enjoy. I know that the person getting this basket LOVES Disney movies and will love this one. *Note: This basket IS for an adult and not a child.*
Now here’s where I stray from what the giver may “want”. I always like to include something that I enjoy when I’m watching a movie. I do stick within dietary/allergy restrictions and as much as I can with tastes. For example, this Thinking of You Gift Basket I decided to include a pack of coffee. There were no dietary or allergy restrictions, however, there were taste restrictions as the person tends to favor one brand of coffee so I went with the Maxwell House.
Lastly, I like to include something that I think they may need. The receiver of this basket has mentioned that they’ve been having issues with bladder leakage but that they don’t want to “wear diapers”. I wanted to include a trial pair of Depend Silhouette Active’s for them to try out because after searching the isle these seemed the most like “panties” as opposed to “diapers”. I think these will give her the security against the bladder leakage without feeling bulky or loosing any dignity.
So there you have my Thinking of You Gift Basket, what do you like to include in your gift baskets.
