In a casual facebook conversation, I found out that one of my best girlfriends from High School (don't ya love facebook?!) has a fabulous business called Baskets by Sadi. There is a basket there for every occasion..... Mother's Day, Birthday, Out with the Girls, Out with the Boys, Movie Night, you name it, and the prices are unbelievably reasonable!
I had to ask .... how did you get started?
I actually started after constantly receiving thoughtless gifts. One Christmas I got a black purse, when I went through the purse it had a card in it from the original buyer to the original receiver- who in turn, gave it to me. That actually hurt my feelings!! And it is a pet peeve. Since then, I have promoted my private thought that, people want a personalized gift that is JUST FOR THEM. Nobody else. I already loved baskets, and I started selling what I thought women would like. SO when some one tells me they want a basket, I usually ask: what is the receiver's favorite color, hobby, or taste? What do they do for a living etc. I love to make personalized baskets. I actually feel very uncomfortable making impersonal baskets - my biggest fear is - will the receiver love it....? It's great to receive a gift, but to receive a gift full of things that YOU specifically like is AWESOME!
