A group of parents (including me) used to put together gift baskets to auction off for my son’s school fundraiser. It was always such a creative thing to do, plus it seems that EVERYONE loves a good gift basket! They are fun to give and receive. Gift baskets can be personalized to fit the special interests of anyone on your holiday list.

The Lakeside Collection offers unique and creative gift basket ideas to inspire you. Their website makes it easy to put together gifts that are sure to impress, without costing a fortune. One of the neat things I noticed about their gift baskets is that the “basket” part does not have to literally be a basket. You can use things like duffel bags, large dishes and bowls, even a pet cave can become the perfect container to hold smaller gift items.
Five popular gift baskets include: Cooking Up Something Special, Crazy For Camo, The Fascinating Fashionista, The Pet Lover and The Little Princess. Today I am highlighting the one I received, Cooking Up Something Special. As you can probably guess from the name of the gift basket, these goodies are perfect for anyone who loves to spend time in the kitchen.
How It Works:
Once you order one of The Lakeside Collection gift baskets, you will receive everything you need to put the gift basket together in a large delivery box. My box was packaged very well, and all of the items (including glass dishes) arrived in perfect condition.
The Cooking Up Something Special Gift Basket contains: a Set of 3 Handled Bakers and Terry Kitchen Towel Sets, The Pioneer Woman Cooks cookbook, Giftable Breakfast Delights — Fruit Crisp mix, Bread Dipping Set and Gourmet 4 Compartment Seasoning Jar and Stainless Steel Cup Measuring Spoons and Cut and Serve Spatula. *Note: You can substitute a different cookbook and/or kitchen gadgets as desired.
Gift basket assembly instructions can be found on The Lakeside Collection web page. You can use your own wrappings (like cellophane and ribbon) or buy them directly from Lakeside when you order the gift basket items. I thought it was really simple to follow the step-by-step directions to assemble The Cooking Up Something Special Gift Basket.
One reason I chose this particular gift basket is because I may decide to split it into 3 smaller gift packages. There were 3 glass baker dishes and plenty of kitchen towels to divide between them. The cookbook, mix, bread dipping set and gourmet seasonings can also be divided up, along with the kitchen gadgets. I can surprise 3 people for the price of one gift basket from The Lakeside Collection.
