#Giveaway Gift Giving with The Lakeside Collection Gift Basket Ideas

With all of the holiday shopping that we do, I enjoy not only finding the gifts, but also making them special. I like searching for those gifts that are ones that represent my recipients interests, and even finding a selection of gifts and creating a theme around them. Now, until recently, I really did not think of myself as crafty when it comes to bring a set of gifts together into a basket, that was until I was shown some great basket ideas from The Lakeside Collection!

Recently I was sent some products, that were all based around a theme, and after following the suggested directions from The Lakeside Collection, I was able to create a very nice gift basket to give, that made it so all of the items were used in order to create the basket! I chose to go with the products from the Cooking Up Something Special Gift Basket, which once all of the products were put together, turned out to create a very nice gift basket to give this holiday season! With the products I was sent, I was able to really make a very unique and fun gift basket. I was sent the set of 3 Handled Bakers, a 10 pc Terry Kitchen Towel Set, The Pioneer Woman Cooks cookbook, a Gourmet Kitchen Gift Set, the Fruit Crisp Giftable Breakfast Delights, and the Stainless Steel Cup-Size Measuring Spoons!

You can check out this great basket and see how I put my gift basket, as pictured below, together by seeing the step by step instructions which I followed, by go to this link: http://www.lakeside.com/jma/Cooking-Up-Something-Special

I found this gift basket idea, along with some of the other ones that you can find from the Lakeside Collection site, to make for great gift giving ideas this holiday season! So as you head out to find those gifts to give, consider creating some fun gift baskets of your own, and head on over to The Lakeside Collection for some great ideas!! Also to help with the gift giving, the wonderful people from The Lakeside Collection would like to give one of my amazing readers their own Curious Cook Gift Basket!


Product received, thank you to The Lakeside Collection and the PR for supplying me with a product for this review, all opinions are my own.
