Homemade Christmas Gift Basket

Your friend loves your recipe for Chocolate Zucchini Breads. Make up a box of measured dry ingredients, mini-loaf pans, and a recipe card. For that relative who's impossible to shop for, put together a holiday appetizer basket — a good salsa, a log of soft goat cheese, blue corn chips and heating directions. Optional: serving bowl or plate.

Supplies:

A basket, fruit crate (check your grocer on delivery days), or an open box wrapped on the outside with holiday paper, ribbon, tag
Colored tissue paper or dish towel
Basket gifts
Colored 4 by 6-inch index cards for recipes (lined or blank cards — it's up to you)
