It's been a while since I last posted a gift basket. Below is one I recently created for a silent action for the St. Madeleine Sophie's Center's annual Haute with Heart event. St. Madeline Sophie's Center is an amazing day facility for adults with developmental disabilities. Check out their website to see the great work that they do. Every year they hold a fashion show and silent auction to raise money for their center and to help fund all the great work they do there.
My contribution to this wonderful event is a tea basket. Inside is everything someone needs for a relaxing afternoon either reading one of my Regency historical romance novels or watching this BBC version of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility while enjoying a cup of tea. I set it all in a reusable canvas storage basket which can later be used to store magazines or toys in your living room or bedroom.
2 white ceramic Bodum mugs - I love these because they are stylish but simple and sturdy, and they have the silicone grip.
A simple white ceramic teapot - I chose a simple white so it would match anyone's decor. This one is from Starbucks but Amazon has an amazing selection of similar teapots.
Signature Tea Company teas in pretty little tins. I love teas in tins because it makes the tea feel so much more elegant.
4 passes to the San Diego Museum of Art - Viewing old masterpieces it's another relaxing way to spend an afternoon.
Threshold linen napkins to liven up a tea spot.
Harlequin cozy socks to help make the tea drinker cozy, along with a journal to write down their thoughts or to be creative.
If you love this basket then you will love my books because people drink a lot of tea in my stories. .
