Holiday Gift Baskets for Everyone On Your List

It happens every year – I think I have my shopping done.  Gifts are wrapped and under the tree.  Hostess gifts are waiting in the closet.  And then…. I remember that Secret Santa event I was supposed to bring a gift to.  I forgot to get stocking stuffers for an overnight guest.  And, a neighbor drops off holiday goodies, and I have nothing to give back in return. 

Those are the moments when I turn to the gift basket.  A gift basket filled with items that I can get without heading to the mall during the holiday season.  Ho, ho… nope.

With these six gift basket ideas, featuring items available at local Harris Teeter, your last minute gift ideas are taken care of.  Letting you focus on what really matters this season – spending time with those you love most!
