Now on with some inspirational ways of saying thanks. I found 3 beautiful ways of giving that have beautiful presentation, and scream homemade!
On the left and center are two homemade gifts made by Jenny Steffens Hobick. She runs the blog 'Everyday Occasions'. The name of the blog says it all. I love the idea of making everyday special!
On the left she planted a paper white bulb in an Anthropologie bowl filled it with soil and covered it with moss. She then wrapped it in a cellophane bag and added a tag and natural twine. See that post here! Also how she made the hostess breakfast gift basket in the center here. Last but not least- On the right, Country Living covered how to make your own gift baskets. The photo on the right is on the cover of that guide. See their suggestions and how-to here.
