My in-laws live three houses down from me
and I kept having to borrow things like sugar, flour, eggs, milk, etc. because my memory is like a colander and I kept forgetting what I needed at the store. Anyway, last Christmas I decided to make my mother-in-law a gift basket containing brand new packages of all the things I had borrowed over the year. I included a gift card from the grocery store for those items that were perishable and also wrote her a little poem. She loved it! Holly, I also love making gift baskets! You can personalize them, theme them, whatever. And, if you're a frugal shopper they don't have to cost that much to make. Great thread Mz Holly!
