I don't have pictures, but for my children's basket, I requested snacks, water bottles (VERY HANDY for excursions) crackers, chips, chocolate, all in nice pails with shovels..My kids loved it.

I had one made for DH as well. It was some adult beverages , a corkscrew, and some lovely pretzels. My DH loved it, and it REALLY came in handy. His was done in the shape of a football I believe (not a good memory on my part), and I can vow that NOT one item went to waste anywhere..

My children kept the cards Shirley put on the baskets from every time we cruise. They really loved it..

Shirley will give you a ton of ideas when you call her. She will ask you who you are getting the basket for the age, ect. I don't have a pic, but I ordered from her for my daughter who was 7 at the time, Shirley asked who was her fave princess and I told her Ariel, and the basket was filled with everything Areil she could find, she also had the card say it was from Ariel, DD was thrilled.

One thing is Shirley wil NOT disappoint!

Good Luck, have fun!

I haven't any pictures, but just to say they were great, she found out about my kids likes and ages and tailor made them.

Ours were slightly bigger than picture above with various items from snacks to toys in them.

Well recommend, I haven't been able to use since as I cruised in the Med and this year West coast.

This had sand toys, cookies, chips, candy, baseball cards, pirate stuff, stickers and I some drinks. The kids loved them.

Sorry for the size of the photo, trying to get it smaller.

Here's a basket Shirley made for my friend - she loved it!






She even put the champagne in the basket.

This is a basket that Shirley delivered that was a total surprise from my FANTABULOUS friends. It had something for all of us...Corona for DH, wine coolers and Godiva chocolates for me, stuffed Pirate Mickey and Minnie for the kids along with beach towels, Mickey candy and tons of other things that we enjoyed including my favorite...a DIS green Ipod.

Hey,

There are lots of options which you can include in your gift baskets. For kids, you can include balloons, candles, bubbles, books, dvd, cd, puzzles, stickers, crayons, markers, gift certificates, snack food, candy, or gum.
