i love giving gifts. simply put, it's my favorite way to love.
i also really love giving gifts that are homemade, meaningful & fit within our budget. on my personal blog, i share several ideas for creating thoughtful, unique gifts that are affordable. today's gift idea is no exception! it cost us nothing but a little bit of our time.
walking through our garden, i began to think about our friends who just moved to town. you see, we have moved a lot. i know what it feels like to be completely exhausted, broke, unable to find the pans to cook dinner & instead just order pizza.
sometimes you just need a bit of cheer to get you through the mountains of boxes.
gathering bits from the garden, i set out to make a basket of cheer.
i found a berry basket in our pantry & filled it with fresh cucumbers from the garden.
i gathered a bouquet of flowers & placed them in a mason jar with a little fabric bow. we collected colorful eggs from the coop & put them in a recycled egg carton.
off to our dear friends & new neighbors with a basket of garden cheer, we went!
what kind of goodies do you pull together from your garden for dear friends, new neighbors & family?
