Christmas Basket

For Christmas I really didn't know much of what to get my MIL. She's a huge I Love Lucy fan but we have always gotten her that stuff and she pretty much has everything we can possibly get for her. We did get her an I Love Lucy blender salt and pepper shaker set.
For some reason when it arrived and I opened it to check I swore I had seen this set in her cabinet and was so afraid she already had it. In a panic the day before Christmas Eve, (when we had dinner) I grabbed a basket and ribbon and quickly threw it all together.
The basket was very plain. I love baskets they can hold so much and make for a nice decoration.
I quickly got my hot glue gun warmed up and slapped some ribbon around it with a bow. I was pretty nervous it wasn't going to be nice but I think it actually turned out pretty cute. The treats made it all kinds of better and she loved it. When she opened her presents that night I was also relieved to find out that she did not have the salt and pepper shakers, I was just paranoid.

I'm glad you took pictures. That blender is so cute :) Glad she didn't end up having them already.
