But what if a giver wants to offer that homemade touch this year? No worries.
Scented holiday light baskets are always great gifts. Gather a small empty clear holiday bowl (or jar), a small strand of Christmas lights and one bag of scented potpourri. Roll up the strand of lights and place them on the bottom of the clear bowl (or jar). Cover with potpourri. Time to plug in the holiday creation. Unplug before venturing to other locations. Place this gift inside of a large basket with other scented gifts.
Scented candles compliments this gift basket. Other added scented items can include sticks, air fresheners or sprays. Carpet powder designed to control pet odor is perfect for a pet owner’s gift basket.
Healthy holiday gift baskets can include a jar of peanut butter surrounded by red and green apples and/or bananas. Another way to give the gift of health includes adding a decorative knife, cheese spread and crackers. We all want to be alive next year so consider being responsible when loading gift baskets with chocolates, sweets and treats. However, adding some homemade sugarless Christmas cookies can turn this basket into a sweet gift.
Holiday gift baskets for hair should include hair accessories. A needle and thread with a couple of small items or trinkets can create some fine hair pieces. All you need are barrettes. Simply sew the items to the barrette. Ribbon attached to barrettes are also good additions. The idea of this basket is to fill it with hair decor and possibly some scarves. A hairnet, good pair of professional hair scissors, cap, towel for wet hair and fancy clips can be included. Give them the gift of beautiful lasting hairstyles by adding a travel can of lightweight strong hold hairspray. No woman should leave home without it!
Homemade pet gift baskets crafted from items around the house is a cost efficient gift. Cut a clean old sock three inches from the toe area. Stuff the cut piece of sock into the toe end. Place a bell inside. Sew the open area with needle and thread until the sock appears in ball formation. Cut all loose string to avoid pet choking. Create two of these soft toys to add inside of the basket.
The pet gift basket also should include a couple of cans of food and treats, a bone for a dog or catnip for a cat.

Most stores offering travel size items such as shaving lotion, singular razors, powders, oils, and etc. Small items purchased on the side, such as lip balm or hand warming towels, can also be tossed inside of this basket.
