In December, I took advantage of the Target after Christmas clearance sale to stock up my gift basket closet. I hit the sales when things were both 50% and then 90% off, and I made sure to choose items that did not have any whiff of Christmas about them. It seemed gold was in this past Christmas, especially at Target, so a lot of the items that I purchased were pretty gold-themed office supplies.
At first, I was going to sprinkle the supplies through different baskets, but then I decided to put a lot of them together to create this feminine office supplies gift basket. This is a great gift for any mom looking to establish or spruce up her home office or the cute little desk space in the kitchen.
The items in the basket include a set of file folder dividers, a silver box of note cards, fancy pencils, a gold themed paperclip and pushpin set, a blank card with envelope, and a magnetic memo pad. I also threw in a bag of M&Ms for the winner to enjoy on those days when life is hectic, and one of my books to read when the pace slows down. A scented candle, some tea, and Burt's Bees lip balm and hand cream round out the offering. Everything is in a chrome wire basket that can be reused in the kitchen or office to hold decorative items.
I hope this basket inspires you to make one of your own. When you're done with your basket, check out my romance novels because you deserve a chance to relax too.
