Don't you just love the movie It's a Wonderful Life? If you don't, well you should. I cry every single time I see it. My sister did a swell thing for me after we built our house. She came bearing a gift basket with some simple items and quotes from the movie. What a great idea! Long on meaning, short on cost. I've done the same for several folks for housewarming gifts and thought I'd share the idea.
You can recreate her idea here. You'll need:
A niceish basket
Gourmet salt of some kind
Your favorite fancy loaf of bread, pretty is a plus.
A bottle of wine (if you are a teetotaler like me, you can substitute Welchs Sparkling Grape or choose a great cooking wine)
These tags: (or make your own!) download them here
You can also get fancy and include other niceties, like some cool tea towels or other gourmet treats. Here's one I gave to one of my other sisters (I have four) when she recently bought a new house.
