Birthday Baskets

Anyone can give a gift card, but not many give custom birthday gift baskets. Today Nathalie gave me one as my belated birthday present, and it was so worth the wait. It was so cute and specially filled with all the kinds of things I like, it made a bright spot in my heart.

Inside was a: Starbucks mug to commemorate the year we worked there together, a personalized "Home Sweet Home" sign, a handmade pillowcase (!) and... a Christmas sweater with sewn on jingle bells. What can I say, Nathalie knows me so well.

Much better than Hallmark. I'm a sucker for homemade cards.

I thought of you (well your blog) when I saw this post on Epicurious about a new cookbook: http://www.epicurious.com/articlesguides/blogs/editor/2009/10/classic-comfort-food-during-cancer-treatment.html

No, it's not related to your birthday basket, but I had to share. :)

It's always fun when the giver has put a lot of thought into personalizing your gift!

But homemade cards? Ah... those always get me! <3

Isn't it great to have a friend who knows you so well? Looks like a fun basket!

For obvious reasons, I am in love with that card! What a thoughtful gift and I think we will need to see a pic of the sweater come Holiday Time.

Casey, I will definitely have to check out that cookbook! Thanks for thinking of me. :)

And don't you worry, there will be lots of pictures of me in the holiday sweater come holiday time. haha

Definitely looking forward to the sweater too :)
Did I miss your birthday? A hip-hop-happy birthday to you lovely one.

That is so sweet! How thoughtful to do such a personal present.

These gifts always show so much more consideration and care than something you just pick up in a store. What a great birthday present!
