So what could go into this basket? Oh you would be amazed at the interesting little items that would fit this theme. Just be sure that you give yourself enough time to really find unique items. And you just never know where you are going to find them, so be ready.
But to help you get started, I'm going to give you a list. Read it over and see if anything would appeal to "your friend" and then copy the items onto a sheet of paper and tuck it into your handbag. Every time you go shopping, read over the list to refresh your mind. But don't be surprised if you find items that aren't on the list. That's half the fun of putting together a gift basket! And you will have fun!
A Gift Basket for your Favorite Aunt

7. A photo album to begin filling up.
8. a canister of cookies to go with the tea
9. a crossword puzzle book to work on while enjoying a cup of tea. If you think that she would prefer a word search, choose that instead.

If you can think of any other items to go into the basket... just add away!
Your obvious choice for your "basket" would to be a nice..... but the choice is yours. I have even written an article on the different types of baskets you could use. They can be found here. They range anywhere from a garbage can to a frying pan! http://www.bukisa.com/articles/315979_getting-serious-with-gift-baskets-lets-start-with-the-basics
Be sure to tie off the top with a ribbon and then make a funny card to go along with your Gift Basket. Or you could wrap the entire "basket" in cellophane so that your basket follows a more traditional style.
