One of my favorite things to make up is a gift basket..... and especially for Halloween! You know, for those far away friends, loved ones and business associates.

You can order something pre-made, or you can make it yourself (of course!) and really make it special. I like to fill my Halloween gift basket (or cauldron) with good and evil treats, like my favorite bottle of 7 Deadly Zins wine, homemade Swamp Salsa, Blue Bat-Wing Chips, Haunted Hot Sauce, Boogers on A Stick (chocolate covered pretzels).... and candy corn!

Just put salsa in a jar with a homemade label, put chips and other goodies in clear plastic bags with ribbons and tags. Fill the basket with lots of orange and black raffia (or pre-made filler you can pick-up at your local craft store).... add a few plastic spiders and maybe a rat or two... and don't forget to tie it all up with cellophane wrap and a big black bow on top!

But if you're just too darn busy to make a gift basket, check out some of these great ideas that are just a click or phone call away, from Gifts For All!
