"Family Movie Night" Gift...

I used to put together baskets like this as "Date Baskets" for Bridal's not a NEW idea....but I liked her ideas...found on this blog.
She bought the popcorn bowls at Tai Pan Trading (in UT) and then filled them with supplies from the Dollar Store for a family movie night. She liked the idea of a gift that this gift let the family spend time together during such a busy time of year.
Large bowl/container
2 boxes of movie candy
Box of microwave popcorn
Old classic type movie (or you could do a Blockbuster Gift Card)cellophane
Tags with personal message
Newspaper to stuff the bottom of the bowl with so that the goodies stand out
Total cost: Approx $10 (can be done for considerably less with a different container)

Doncha Just LOVE the SMELL of Christmas??

Crazy Crafty Cousins posted about how to make HOMEMADE potpourri! Ooooohhhhh!!
Here's what they said:
This makes a great neighbor gift! Just add 2 slices of each a lemon, a lime, an orange, add 4-5 cinnamon sticks and a palm full of whole cloves. Once you put it on your stove, add water and it will fill your house with wonderful Christmas scents!
Attach a card that has these instructions on it:
Christmas Potpourri
1. Place ingredients in pot.
2. Fill Pot with water, covering potpourri mix.
3. Bring to a boil and turn down to low.
4. Let simmer & continue to add water as needed.
* potpourri will last approx. one week.
