Doing good things… in a Witchy Way.
One of our Quackers- Debbie Franklin Presley, posted this wonderful idea. I immediately reached out to her to see if we could borrow her idea for a Fridays at the Factory blog. With her giving spirit– she immediately said yes!
Debbie wrote– “Even on a very tight budget, you can still do something amazing and impactful for someone! Shopping at Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, Dollar General and even the local grocery store, you can create a memorable gift for anyone you know who could use an extra smile. (That’s all of us, right?)”
“A young lady in our community whom I have known since she was in the 3rd grade, (I was a mentor with Big Brother/Big sister program), lost her husband of nearly 2 years to a tragic accident. They have a young toddler. This young lady has always had a tremendous love of all things Halloween. If you have not heard of a Boo Basket, it is a thing! I saw her posting a lament that she would love to receive one and shared a page about them. Of course, I had to respond immediately! So, for very little money and a whole lot of love, she will receive this basket this weekend. It may not heal her sorrow, but it will bring a smile to her heart like nothing else. I would encourage anyone out there to do something simple like this for someone. THE SMALLEST GESTURE CAN MAKE THE BIGGEST IMPACT. ”
Debbie- we wholeheartedly agree with you!!
Here is Debbie’s idea for a fun gift basket.
Grab a mug, a candle, a fun Halloween sign and other fun Knick-knacks. You can add some candy too if you like!! We love the spider web shaped basket to hold everything! And you can use the basket again for a candy dish or something else.
Gather the items for your basket. Don’t forget some paper shred!!
Add a fun Halloween themed candle!
When assembling the basket, you can use glue dots or tape to keep your items in place.
Wrap your basket with some cellophane & tie it up so none of your gifts fall out.
Debbie thank you for sharing your thoughtful idea! We love all things Halloween & hope that some of you may take Debbie’s lead & give a Boo Basket to someone you know. Happy Halloween!!!
