I love giving gifts, searching for the perfect item, wrapping it up pretty and of course the act of giving all makes me so very happy. I was really inspired by this company's beautiful packaging and knew I wanted to put together a little basket for couple that has been so good to us. Sometimes it's fun to give a gift for no reason at all but to let someone know how much you appreciate them. I went with a theme of a "date night in" which included all the essentials for a relaxing night at home with your favorite person. Some items were picked up during our travels on Nantucket as well as some local Boston shops and online favorites. All the details to make one for yourself or a friend are below.
I decided that finding the perfect vessel to hold all the treats would be my starting point. I knew I wanted to do a basket and when I saw this market basket I quickly scooped it up not only for it's awesome color but ability to hold a lot with a sturdy handle. From there on out, I collected items that coordinated with the aqua color all while staying within the "date night in" theme. So super soft towels, a delicious smelling candle, gem shaped soaps, bubble bath and salts were all in order. I then used a piece of lace gift wrap to line the basket as well as some filler to arrange all the items at different heights so you could see everything clearly. You can shop everything below. Happy Gifting!
