Gift baskets

I came across this post from Coupon Mommie today and it reminded me of the gift baskets I made for Mother's Day and forgot to tell you about.
Knowing that our mothers and my Nana have just about everything they need, it's sometimes hard to figure out what to buy them for occasions such as Mother's Day, so this year I made them gift baskets from my stockpile. I know for instance that my Nana likes to use Dove products, so when CVS has deals on Dove, I stock up. I've forgotten exactly what I put into each of them, but it's stuff like shampoo, conditioner, hair spray, body wash, lotion, soap, razors, and deodorant. Gifts like these always seem to be appreciated and I think many people like getting gifts that are useful.
The Dollar Tree has a pretty good selection of baskets and plastic containers, and shredded paper to use as filler, as well as gift basket wrapping kits, which contain one clear plastic bag and a "pull bow" for a dollar each.
So, if you've started couponing and don't know what to do with all of the stuff in your stockpile, try making some gift baskets!

That is a good idea! I think as people get older they already have plenty of stuff. So, the more useful the gift the better.
