Creative Homemade Gift Basket Ideas

When it comes to homemade gift baskets, I love to get tips and secrets from those who assemble them professionally. Then I can take what they teach me and do it myself with whatever supplies I have at home.
Sometimes it is a lot easier to find a bunch of little items (the sorts of things people love to get, but often don't buy for themselves) and put them all together in a fun container rather than trying to come up with one perfect gift.
