    My favorite personal idea is creating themed baskets for family and friends occasions. I have a baby shower coming up and I will be making the new mommy to be a basket of “Precious Planet” items – she picked items from this line of product for the baby registry for the shower. Also, we just celebrated my nephew’s 3rd birthday and I wasn’t quite sure what to get him since he has everything already…….so I put together a basked of arts & crafts materials for his age group. He was absolutely thrilled and acted like it was his best present ever!!
