Is that a hint? On gift baskets of soap and body wash

soap-gift-basketI have always felt, personally, that the gift basket is a cop-out. It’s one thing if you put a gift basket together yourself filled with favorite things that you know the recipient will enjoy. For example, a box with a  favorite dvd, a box of popcorn and a box of hot chocolate mix might make for a very nice gift.

But to buy one off the shelf, put together by a total stranger is just lazy.

And soap? As a gift?

Is this what you really mean?

soap

Or maybe you really mean this?

deodorant

While you’re at it, why not add this to the basket?

bathroom-cleaner

And don’t forget this!

toilet-cleaner

That’s what you really mean, isn’t it?

If you really don’t know what to buy me, I’ll always welcome a gift card to Barnes and Noble, or a box of chocolates.

Or a basket of this would be nice!

What’s the best or worst gift basket you ever received?

    1. Thank you for visiting NIBSIH… I am so glad you laughed. Sometimes I write these things, and I am afraid people will take me too seriously 🙂

      But I have known a few people who could have benefited from this kind of gift!
