For Halloween this year, I wanted to do something sweet for my amazing boyfriend.
So, I bought a wicker basket from the craft store, along with fake autumn colored leaves. I filled the basket with all of the leaves, wrapped orange and black ribbon around the handle, and tied it with a bow.
On the edge of the basket, I put these fake (fall colors) fruit that were on a wire. I bought a dark red candle to go with my autumn/Halloween type theme. I bought orange and black Kisses (caramel!) and sprinkled the entire bag over the leaves. I bought a tiny little black cup that had pumpkins painted on it and filled that with candy corns.
I also bought a miniature pumpkin and wrote in black marker, „I love You!” on it. Finally, I took a picture of me that he had taken recently and framed it. This picture fit perfectly because it had a bit of an orange tint to it. I put all of these things into the basket, along with a Halloween card.
He was blown away! He thought I had bought it because it looked so nice. This is a good idea because it can work for any time of year…just change the theme.
Plus you can fill the basket with a variety of different things. Good luck!
