Feralpeg--I'm going back to WDW this summer, and oh how I wish you could do another basket for us like the ones you did 2 years ago! (I know you're not doing them anymore...just wanted to say that I never forgot what an awesome job you did!) :thumbsup2

Thank you! I'm so happy you liked them!

I just put together this basket for someone. I'm not selling them at this time, but I do them once in awhile. It is my little creative outlet!

Yes I believe that Memories by sarah is now run by Betsy. Sarah sent me this email after I emailed her about getting a basket.

"Thank you for your interest in Memories By Sarah! Due to a family relocation, I am leaving your basket inquiry in the very capable hands of my friend, Betsy, who has been working with me for the last several months. She is as enthusiastic about Disney as I am and is committed to making your gifts the best possible magical memory they can be!"

I am still planning on using memories by betsy and will post a picture of the basket when we get it...that will not be until Nov 2008 though (I am an early planner)

I received the same message. I have been working with Betsy and she is great. I'll be there next month and I've talked to her about doing two baskets. I also like her website, her baskets are easier to see than before, you can get a good close up.

Hello All,
I pretty much decided to make my own stuff. In the past I had purchased a few things here and there for my previous trips. This time because we are all staying at the same resort and so many of us will be there, I wanted decided to make baskets for the kids and totes for each room. There will be 30 of us going for free dining in September, staying at the Polynesian Resort. So far I have made 8 baskets for the kids. Most of the items in the baskets are from the Disney Store, a few items have come from Disney Shopping. I was also able to get a few things from the World of Disney and the Character Outlet during a girls weekend trip to Orlando. I have literally stalked the sales since we all booked in April. And I have gotten full use of the Wishes Granted Daily coupon. I have worked pretty hard on these baskets and I can’t wait for the kids to get them. Figuring out what to get each kid is definitely the hardest part. I would hate to have an unhappy little one at WDW. :sad1: I hope they enjoy what’s inside. All of the kids are WDW vets, so I didn't have to focus on the basics like name tags, autograph books, pens, etc... I now have to concentrate on the tote bags I am filling for each of the rooms.

Five of the kids are different cousin’s kids and these are their baskets:

http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z85/PrincessAyesha2007/WDWGiftBaskets001.jpg

These are for two of the boys age 4 and 6. The theme for their basket is “Meet the Robinsons” (with a little Pirates and misc. sprinkled in the baskets.)

http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z85/PrincessAyesha2007/WDWGiftBaskets002.jpg

Included in each basket is:
MTR T-shirt
Small MTR Plush
MTR Stickers
MTR washcloth
Glowstick
Pirates Lanyard
Three Small Pirates figures
Baseball Cap (Mickey/Buzz)
Approx Cost: 16.00 (including the sand bucket)

http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z85/PrincessAyesha2007/WDWGiftBaskets003.jpg

The next basket is for a 3 month old little one. Her basket includes:
Minnie Tiki onesie
Minnie Plush
Approx Cost: 9.50 (including the easter basket)


http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z85/PrincessAyesha2007/WDWGiftBaskets006.jpg

The next are for a boy and a girl, ages 10 & 12. I figured they would enjoy a little spending change instead of a lot of little things. Their baskets included:
T- Shirt (Minnie/Pirates)
Baseball Cap (Minnie/Pirates)
$10.00 Gift Card
Hair Clips & Lip Gloss/Mini Playing Cards(for the lines/waiting)


http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z85/PrincessAyesha2007/WDWGiftBaskets005.jpg

Up next, the baskets for my niece, nephew and son.

Last but not least my son. Of course he has the most stuff/crap!!! Some of the items pictured he has had from previous trips, like his lanyard. I managed to buy about 6 new pins for the lanyard. Some I am waiting to show him when we get to WDW. His bookbag isn’t really arranged perfectly since he has seen it many times. And I am sure that I will be adding to his stash. I also plan on adding little message cards to each basket.

Hmmm, I guess that is why I haven't heard back from Sarah about our baskets. I emailed her a few months ago and asked her about making some for my kids in September. We have since adopted 3 more so I emailed her about making a larger 'family' basket and she never replied....glad to know I wasn't being ignored LOL

Okay, now that I look at Betsy's website I see that she has a note at the bottom that says Florida has a law that prohibits delivery of food items in a gift basket? True? Then why can I go to the DisneyFlorist site and have a basket of goodies delivered?

I really hope that Betsy can do our basket(s) for us....we wanted something personal but we have to have our candy and snacks in there LOL

Disney Florist is currently the only local place able to do food items. Betsy and Peggy (www.memoriesbybetsy.com and www.peggyssweetsandmore.com) are both home based businesses and don't meet the criteria to be able to sell food. Now if they had a store front then they could. It's all about the food storage and what nots associated with food stuffs.

Thanks. Peggy just emailed me back and told me that as well :) She also clarified that she charges 25.00 per basket, so it would cost me 125.00 just in fees alone...not including merchandise :(

Oh well, back to the drawing board LOL Anywhere that sells Goofy Candy Company stuff and will ship it to me to make their own baskets?

Betsy charges $28 for the first and $8 each additional. Here are the ones she just made for my kids:

I've ordered three gift baskets for DH, DS and DD from Memories by Betsy (www.memoriesbybetsy.com) for our August trip. She couldn't be nicer and really helps in suggesting items for you after you tell her about their interests. I love that you can control the prices since she charges a flat fee of $28 for the first fit basket and $8 for each additional gift basket. This includes shopping, creating the gift basket and delivery to your resort the morning that you arrive. The rest of the cost is simply the cost of the merchandise. You pay what she pays!! I didn't want to spend too much money (just wanted a simple welcome basket) but it sure was tempting to keep adding more. I really appreciated Betsy's suggestions for keeping the price down with certain items.

I am doing this as a surprise for all three and I can't tell you how difficult it has been not telling them :scared: . That's probably why I've posted it numerous times in these forums since it gives me outlet till our trip (why won't time go by faster?).

Anyway, below is the picture that Betsy sent me with the completed baskets for DS and DD. I just told her some things about my kids (DS Pirate and DD Princess, go figure) and she came up with a bunch of suggestions and all I had to do was pick and choose. I also came up with some ideas myself and she went out of her way to find them. She's AWESOME!! Of course, if I lived 5 minutes from Disney and my job was to go shopping in WDW I sure wouldn't complain (jealous) :rotfl2: .

I'm still waiting for a picture of the gift basket for DH since it took me forever to come up with a 'perfect basket'. I'm sure getting my money's worth out of Betsy since I keep changing my order:lmao: . She is so sweet and genuinely seems to want my basket to be perfect too!! I'll post it after I receive the picture which should be this week.

Does anyone know if this includes beverages as well or just actual food? I was planning on making a basket with the mickey head wine glasses and some sparkling cider and without the cider, I might need to re-evaluate things! lol Thanks!

Technically, the law does prohibit beverages as well. It could possibly be added at the last minute at the resort just prior to delivery. It could not be added at the home where the gift baskets are assembled.

Yes you send sparkling cider. I did last year with the mickey mouse wine glasses. Enjoy
