My friends at Stop & Shop gifted me with this lovely basket for Mother’s Day. It includes all of the ingredients for Banana Cranberry Muffins, including the recipe and some Stop & Shop gift cards to pick up the perishable items. It has flour, sugar, dried cranberries, vanilla, and banana almond granola. Mine came in a pretty purple basket that has been appropriated by LadyBug for the purpose of carrying her toys around.They also told me that I could give a basket away to my readers. And guess what I did? Yep. I forgot!
That’s OK, though, because in many households, it’s the mom that does the baking. And unless you love to bake (as I do), who wants to spend Mother’s Day baking her own muffins, right? So, now you can bake when you want to and not feel any pressure. Thoughtful, aren’t I?
In addition to this being a nice gift to receive, this is a great idea for gift-giving, too. It’s not too expensive, but you can find just the right recipe to customize it for your loved one. If you’re the plan-ahead sort, you can get great deals on baskets just after Easter. Otherwise, they’re in abundance at craft stores and in home decor and storage sections of places like Target and Walmart. If you get an unlined basket, you can add an inexpensive dish towel as a liner. So, so cute. Add in some utensils for a housewarming or welcome-to-the-neighborhood gift.
Winning is easy. Just leave a comment below telling me what, if anything, you like to bake most. If you hate baking you can tell me that, too, although then this may not be the ideal prize for you. Don’t forget to include it all in the Rafflecopter widget below. And if you have any questions or concerns, drop me a note.
