Gift basket „Tea Time“
In the basket for tea lovers are 2 different types of tea: Darjeeling from India and ginger-orange-lemongrass tea. In addition, fudge, rock candy (or kluntjes) in a glass jar. A delicious bee honey and a pretty homemade baking mix for brownies in a milk bottle complete the basket. For the felt basket we chose size L, nature mixed. We tied the little labels to the jars and bags with parcel string. You can download the labels and the recipe for the baking mix here, print them and cut them out.

In the orange basket (burnt orange mixed in size L) we have packed the 3 card games "SKYJO", "Wizard" and "6 takes!". Behind the games is a big bag of potato chips (alternatively popcorn) - that already fills the gift basket nicely. Then we filled up the remaining space in the basket with whole, unshelled peanuts.
