Yup....

We're all talking about what we'd like to order and we have all kinds of people - adults, seniors, kids..

We're looking for ideas for things that we might include in our baskets!!!

Thanks -

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..

Here's what we got from Shirley:



If I recall correctly - this was the medium sand bucket. Shirley wrote his name on it with "Tigger" letters, and it had sand toys, snacks, a juice, water, and then I had her add a few small pirate toys also.

The other was a bottle of wine and champagne in a little canvas tote bag.

Shirley has great ideas - just give her a call!

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.

*bump*
I would love more pics and ideas. I'm celebrating a big birthday onboard....could always send *hint* links to hubby, family, etc. Plus it might be good for my kids to have sand toys there instead of having to pack them.
