Holiday Gift Basket Ideas

Holiday Gift Basket Ideas with fun ideas for teenagers, men or women including a DIY Lavender Rosemary Mineral Bath and Homemade Cinnamon Candle. serenabakessimplyfromscratch.com
Sometimes it's hard to know what to get someone for the holidays but I always find gift baskets an easy versatile gift that can be individualized for any one.
Holiday Gift Baskets are always fun to receive and give whether it's for Mom, a best friend, coworker or neighbor I think everyone loves a basket filled with goodies! 
Holiday Gift Baskets are easy to adapt for teenagers, men, and women.
I made this basket with a women in mind however men will enjoy the GODIVA Chocolate Gift Box and DIY Lavender Rosemary Mineral Bath for achy muscles as much as anyone else.
The DIY Cinnamon Wrapped Candle can be swapped out with a grooming kit or old fashioned shave kit for something a little more masculine. 
For teenage girls you might add lip gloss, a set of knee high socks or an eye mask.
I also always include a Christmas Ornament when I give a gift at the holidays! 
This year we are doing wooden chalk gift tags that double as an ornament or can be reused later.
I always love receiving ornaments and think it's so nostalgic as I remember each year where they came from and the story behind them.

The idea for this basket centered around these GODIVA 9 piece chocolates that are now available at Walmart with exceptional quality and unmatched flavor you've come to expect from GODIVA with a price that won't break the bank.
As I was growing up I always remember one of the family Christmas presents was a high quality box of chocolate like GODIVA creates.
It was always a favorite of everyone as we each had a turn to choose a chocolate before passing the box.
So I knew when I saw the GODIVA chocolates at Walmart they would be the perfect foundation for Christmas gift giving and my Holiday Gift Baskets.

To make the relaxing DIY Lavender Rosemary Mineral Bath you'll need 2 cups Epsom Salts, 2 tablespoons Dried Lavender and 1 tablespoon Dried Rosemary crushed between your fingers to break into smaller pieces.
Stir together until well combined.

Store in glass containers with tight fitting lids.
I like these locking glass containers since they look pretty left on the counter but Mason jars are fun too.
I suggest using 1/2 cup - 1 cup per bath.
This recipe can easily be adjusted to make more DIY Lavender Mineral Bath dependent on how large your containers are and how many baskets you are making. 
I then tied some cute red and white Christmas twine around the lid.

To make this Homemade Cinnamon Wrapped Candle wrap 2 rubber bands one at the top and one at the bottom of a 3"x 6" off-white candle.
Take about 21-22 6"long cinnamon sticks and place between rubber bands all the way around the candle until filled.
The cinnamon sticks can be glued into place if desired but you will need to allow time for the glue to dry.

Take Christmas twine or ribbon and wrap tightly around cinnamon sticks.

Tie off in a pretty bow and move rubber bands to the bottom.
Wrap more ribbon around the bottom of candle and tie off tightly with a small knot in the back.
Remove rubber bands from around candle.

Not only is this Homemade Cinnamon Wrapped Candle adorable it smells amazing as the candle gets warm and heats the cinnamon sticks!

To assemble the gift baskets I used Christmas colored filler in the bottom of the basket then I added 2 boxes of GODIVA chocolates, the DIY Lavender Rosemary Mineral Bath and Cinnamon Wrapped Candle. I then added the personalized chalk board ornament to finish off the Holiday Gift Basket.
