When It Comes To Gift Baskets, Nut Gift Baskets Can Make The Perfect Gift

Recently my father went to an helped living apartment complex. It was getting too hard for him to manage the upkeep of his home on a day-to-day basis. At first I thought it was going to be hard for him to go into such an apartment complex, because he is a very active person, but he seems to really delight in it. They helped living employees always offer fantastic activities for him to participate in and he gets to relax and delight in his retirement instead of worrying about the upkeep of his home.

When my mother was alive, my father and her would always place together fantastic gift baskets for all the family and their close friends. They worked for months in advance plotting and baking so they could get all their creations out to everyone on their holiday list. After my mother passed away my family and I tried to help my father make them to give out, but we just couldn’t get it all together. We were able to get a few baskets out, but the other people on the list were sent nut gift baskets instead.

It turns out that the people that received the nut gift baskets were really excited about them. They loved their thoughtful gifts and called my father to thank him over and over again. Many of the friends that my mother and father had been sending the baskets to were diabetic, so the nut gift baskets worked so much better for them than cookies or baked goods.

So this year my father chose he didn’t even want to try baking at all. Instead, he wanted to give his special baskets for everyone on his list. Unfortunately the price of purchasing that many of them was just too much for his budget. So we chose on a compromise of making our own to send out instead.

In the summer we set out on a mission to find discount baskets that we could use for our holiday gift giving. Surprisingly finding decent prices on them was not as hard as I had expected. We visited a couple craft stores and soon had plenty of the products for making our gifts with. While at the craft store we pick up some clear wrap to cover them with and some decorative ribbons as well.

After finding the baskets the rest of the work was pretty simple. We bought a variety of nuts for various online stores and our local supermarket. Then we scheduled a weekend to sit down and place them all together.

My wife and I had so much fun helping my father with his personalized holiday presents that we chose to buy the supplies to make our own nut gift baskets for our friends and co-workers!

Making your own gifts for the people on your list is a creative way to get the whole family involved in the spirit of giving. Plus our nut gift baskets cost a fraction of what we normally spend on holiday gifts!
