Just wanted to show the gift baskets Betsy did for our 3 children. Betsy was very easy and nice to work with. I made a few changes to our baskets trying to stay within a budget and Betsy was fine w/all the changes. I didn't do very well staying within our budget but the kids will love them. I tried to pick items that we'd buy anyway.

Let me see if my pic works then I'll add the contents of the baskets for those thinking of gift basket ideas.

Ok it works! The first basket is for DD4 - a princess themed basket - minnie princess plush, wand, tiara, autograph book & pen, pressed penny book, princess soap & arcarde card (DS8 has one so DD4 has to have it too ;) )

The middle basket is a toddler basket for DD2.5 - she loves minnie & shes started to like to dressup in princess dresses so this basket is kind of a mix of those characters. Baby minnie plush, princess bath toys, donald ducky, minnie sippy cup (instead of arcade card), autograph book & pen (a little old for her but I think she'll want to participate w/the autographs too), pressed penny book (again a little old for her but I think she'll like it and she'll have it to look at when shes older)

The last basket if for DS8 - a pirate themed basket. Stitch is his favorite character thus the Stitch plush (there are pirate plushes just not Stitch pirate), pirate sword/eyepatch, pirate gun, telescope, pirate autograph book & pen, pressed penny book & arcade card.

There is so much to choose from and really the kids don't need any more stuffed animals but the plushes really personalized the baskets. I tried to keep everything fair - same number of items. DD2 has 1 less item but theres 4 or 5 bath toys in the package so that works. I could go nuts trying to keep everything fair - after all they can share.

As I said I went over my budget but the majority of the items we would have bought anyways. Each basket was between $65-$70 plus delivery. I started out w/a $55 per basket budget but that was before seeing the prices - very expensive. Betsy only charges what she pays - its just Disney prices. And I added the arcade cards & sippy cup at the last minute so thats what put me over my $55/basket. Betsy is willing to work w/any budget & she has lots of ideas.

The kids will like them & I won't have to stand in line to buy the pressed penny books & autograph books when we get there. Upon arrival we'll be heading to Chef Mickey's so we'll be all set.

There is also a fellow disser that does baskets as well. Her name is Peggy - not sure of her website but I'll see if I can find it. I went w/Betsy as I orginally contacted Sarah who has since moved & now Betsy runs the business. Peggy has nice baskets as well. You could do a search for giftbaskets and ger her website as well as some others.

Peggy is a Dis'er and she often reads and is moved to donate baskets to other Dis'ers (Make a wish kids etc) She has a huge heart!! (feralPeg is her username I believe)

She is very personable -
