We had a lot of fun making holiday gift baskets. We found these apple baskets at Michaels, and they pretty much set the theme. We used mason jars, purchased at any grocery store in Calgary, and a heritage-style decorative corner paper punch for our homemade tags purchased at an arts and crafts store. In these baskets we included Caramel Corn, Spiced Pecans, Mango Pumpkin Seed Granola, and Hot Cocoa Mix.

The wonderful thing about these holiday gift baskets is you can have them pre-made and give them out throughout December. Or, by varying the items and decorations, these baskets can easily become gifts suited for year-round giving.
