We recently found out that a good friend of ours has breast cancer.
She was going to go in to have the lumps removed and have a double mastectomy.
She's a small business owner, a mom, a wife....overall a busy lady!
I love her dearly and hate to see her family going through this.
I know how hard this has been on her and her family,
so I wanted to try and do something to make her day a little brighter.
So I put together this gift basket.
I'm sure you've seen the cost of buying pre-made gift baskets...they are super pricey.
And sometimes buying the items that you'd like to put into a basket can be pretty expensive too.
So I decided to see what items I might already have that would go good in a basket.
A lot of these are deals that I found for either free or really cheap with coupons:
- Softsoap Bodywash ($0.50)
- Oatmeal bath packets (3 for $0.75)
-Monopoly card game (free)
-Colgate toothpaste (free)
-Sleepytime tea ($2)
The other items, I picked up at garage sales...and were in like new condition:
-Starbucks coffee mug ($1)
- Max Lucado Book ($0.50)
-Avon anti-bacterial lotion ($0.25)
along with some tissue paper I already had, this basket came together nicely!
My total cost for this basket was $6.00
I delivered it to her, and she loved it.
There are a good mix of items to use while at the hospital
and after she gets home.
It's important to remember that when giving a gift
cost doesn't matter
the thought and love that go into a present
that's what matters!
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Please take a second to say a prayer for my sweet friend.
Have a wonderful week.
