Personalized Gift Baskets

Hot glue gun
Wicker basket with handle
Dried or silk flowers, leaves, etc.
Thin wire
Needlenose pliers
Wire cutters
Stuff to put in the basket

Use silk flowers for baskets to be used in a bathroom - they'll be less susceptible to water/moisture damage than dried flowers.
Decorate the basket with ribbon! Measure a length of ribbon to go around the lip of the basket. Twist it into a narrow rope and glue it around the rim. You can also wind matching ribbon around the handle, securing the ends with dabs of hot glue.
Line the inside of the basket with plastic wrap, tissue, straw or colored confetti. Then fill the basket with stuff!

Sock Snowman

White sock
Small black beads
1 orange bead
Scraps of colorful fabric
Rubber band
Black paint or marker

Fill the sock 3 quarters full with rice.
Place a rubber band tightly around the top of the sock, leaving a couple of inches for the hat.
To create the hat, fold the lip of the sock over the top of the rubber band. Paint the hat with the black paint or marker.
To add the scarf, take a small strip of the colorful fabric and tie it around the sock (about 1/3 of the way down from the hat).
Place on eyes, nose, mouth, and buttons with black and orange beads.
