A Simple Gift

For Mother's Day I wanted to make a little something special for my mother and sister. I really love giving homemade gifts! My mother has everything and just giving a Lowe's gift card (which is what she asks for every year for every occasion) wasn't enough to me :-). I wanted to make something this time around. I usually sew blankets, dolls or superhero capes for my nieces and nephews but I never really made anything for my mom or sister. I came up with this idea of a lemonade basket. 
This gift is so cute and something that you just can't go pick up in a store! All that is required of the recipient is a pitcher and some lemons, everything else is provided in this nicely packaged present. Here is what you will need to make this gift for someone special.

A couple of weeks ago I shared with you how to make three different infused simple syrups and paint dipped spoons. I paired both of these items as well as a citrus reamer and a set of tea towels all packaged up in cute little basket.
I tied the recipe with a cute lemon tag on the outside of the basket. I made a printable for those of you who would like to make this simple gift for someone. This will work great as a hostess or a housewarming gift.
The mint syrup went to my mom and the raspberry went to my sister. I didn't share this with you before because they read my blog and I didn't want them to be tipped off.

And there you have it, a perfect gift for someone special! Have you made anything special for anyone lately? Or has someone made you something special? See ya soon!
