Did you ever receive a gift basket, and your initial response was, "WOW!" because the packaging really got your attention. . .only to open it and be underwhelmed by the contents? My gift basket philosophy is to create a basket that gives far beyond the initial response. I include modern brands you know, love, and trust, and which you will be proud to give. I will sometimes include a vintage element of some kind. Please scroll down to see samples of baskets I have made.  I will take orders for a custom basket, but I may need a few days' notice.  I will deliver gift baskets to addresses in Gloucester County, NJ, or you can pick up your basket at my place in Mantua Township. Delivery charge is $5.00 to Mantua Township and Pitman, and $10.00 to anywhere else in Gloucester County.    I accept Paypal and Venmo. Please click "contact" to arrange purchase and delivery. Thanks so much for checking out my stuff!
