I’m so Southern I drawl when I dream, so putting together a honey themed gift basket means pairing it with biscuits for this Southern girl. I think a gift basket should reflect the individual giving it as well as being a good match for the person receiving it. This is a perfect gift for anyone, I think. I mean, honey….how can you ever go wrong? I especially love this Don Victor honey. Its premium quality and superior taste make it a delicious gift! It also has the honeycomb in it, which is so gorgeous and looks so special!
To create this gift basket I assembled some holiday themed kitchen items that I picked up at WalMart. I poured the dry ingredients of a homemade biscuit mix into a clear bag and wrote the recipe and directions on the back of the tag. I used this recipe.
I created tags using Scrabble-like letter tiles that had self adhesive backings. You can cut tags out of cardboard, cereal boxes, whatever you have. I purchased a huge box of tags like the one that says “recipe” from an office supply store. Use whatever you like or what you have on hand.
I finally used a chicken wire frame that I bought a year ago. YAY! I love the way it’s incorporated into the gift basket. It’s perfect for holding the biscuits and honey signs! I cut a piece of red felt for the top of the frame. The flowers and wooden ampersand came from my crafty stash. I used a liquid glue to stick it to the ampersand to the corrugated banner. I love the way it looks!
The Don Victor honey makes this gift pretty, yummy and perfect. Plus, it has an affordable price! Add a cute stuffed bear or bee and you’ve got a beary or buzz worthy gift! 😉
When you go to get this delicious Don Victor honey, you’ll find at Walmart within the Hispanic Aisle. I had no trouble finding it knowing that it was in the Hispanic aisle, so remember that’s where it is! While I was in Walmart, I picked up the basket, oven mitt, pot holder and spatula for the gift basket. They also had colored burlap, in the floral department, like the kind I wrapped around my basket. I had some already in my crafty stash but was really impressed with the options they had!
I received these new Don Victor products to try. First, aren’t they pretty just to look at? I think so. Can’t you see them making a wonderful gift basket? Me too. Why aren’t these in the gift basket? I ate them. LOL! At least I shared! 😉
As I write this, DH and I are enjoying biscuits with these honey’s spread on them. I came up with the genius idea to cut the biscuits in half so we could make a biscuit honey variety plate. Totally without me asking my husband said, “This honey is so rich and complex.” After two of his biscuits had a collision he said, “The honey is great. The cinnamon and cocoa combined are nearly perfection.” I actually typed out what he was saying as he said it. I thought he might break into a honey themed sonnet but then he got a phone call and was back to work. So, I say keep a lookout for this honey too. It gets two thumbs up from this house.
Make a beary nice gift for your honey! I couldn’t resist. Ok, this makes a great gift for your honey or anyone!
