Gift baskets are kind of over used I think– but a great way to not make it like you ran to the store last minute to pick up the first gift basket you see, a little set of mug rugs holiday gift basket might be just the thing you need.
It’s a blend of the hand made and the store bought world + a little personalized. Could go a long way! I’m thinking that a large pile of these could be made at once and then you just make sure you keep the other ‘fillers’ on hand. Just throw a few of each and you are ready for your next holiday get together, house warming gift, or friendly gift swap.
Mug rug Tutorials to make for your holiday gift baskets~
What kind of things could you include in your little gift basket?
- hot cocoa mixes- lots of flavors out there now! Tons to choose from
- yummy snacks
- chocolate (this should be in every gift basket)
- peppermint sticks or candy canes
- new mugs
- you name it – it could fit in!
Wouldn’t it be fun to add a little sewing spin to it?
- spools of thread
- fabric packs
- bunches of scraps
The idea is to have fun. Make it personalized for the recipient. This is just a great option to make it a little hand made without going over the top and sewing up a lap sized quilt. Everything going along with the mug rugs can really be whatever.
