I had so much fun anticipating a visit from my two granddaughters and my older granddaughter's best friend. Always trying to make them feel welcome and special, I constructed these gift baskets for about $10 each
A trip to the Dollar Store rewarded me with some fun and unique items I thought they would enjoy. Each girl received a basket with a brightly colored bandana to make the basket appealing. Within the bandana-laced basket I inserted coordinating water bottles, with a screw in container at the bottom for ice, M & M's, or whatever they wanted. I found matching hair brushes, eye masks they could refrigerate and wear to sooth their tired eyes, (after attending a Taylor Swift concert, a much welcomed addition!). I supplied them with a scrunchy, a toothbrush, and a coordinating bottle of body wash from Bath & Body Works. And lastly, a custom water bottle label with their name applied in the matching color of their basket. They were so bright and cheerful.
I knew I had achieved success when Morgan said, "Staying at Grandma's is better than staying at a hotel". ;-)
I share this with you because I want you to know it doesn't cost a fortune to make someone feel loved and welcome.
