I put together my roommate's bridal shower gift. I had a hard time deciding what to get her. I didn't want to get her a towel and a spoon off her registry. She registered for high end things, and for $50 (what I was willing to spend) there wasn't a whole lot to choose from. Which somewhat angers me, but that's another post.
Anyway I decided to make her a GIFT BASKET. Acutally it's not a basket at all, but it's a watering can. I bought her this big pink watering can at Canadian Tire and then it took off from there. I added pink gardening gloves, 3 gardening tools which I wrapped in pink ribbon, 4 packs of seeds, 2 pink citronella candles (keep those mosquitos away!), and some pink hand cream. Gotta have the hand cream after a day of gardening. I also purchased her about 300 stickers that say "This belongs to Mrs.______" with her NEW name on it. They are colourful and will be great for her books (she is also a supply teacher).
I still need to add a bow to the watering can but all together I spent about $50. If I bought off her registry I would get two small items, or if I bought a gift basket from a store I would not have got the quality or amount of items I was able to buy.
I need to work on tying bows.
From the front.
From the back. Book stickers are not included. I think I will just add them to the card.
My roommate grew up on a farm so I hope she will be able to grow the seeds!
