Our family has a tradition of giving gift baskets at Christmas time. I love this tradition. Not only because I enjoy receiving the creative gifts from my loved ones, but because it’s so much fun thinking of new, healthy, and frugal gift ideas to give someone else!

Christmas Gift Baskets

Here are 25 of my favorite gifts to tuck into baskets:

  1. Herbal teas – my favorites are from Bulk Herb Store
  2. Homemade Cocoa Mix
  3. Homemade Mocha Mix
  4. Dried, loose herbs or spices
  5. Cinnamon sticks (again, I order these from Bulk Herb Store)
  6. Natural lotions (homemade, or “green” brands like Melaleuca)
