    Right now we have what is called the "MONSTER MASH" which is for Halloween.
    It a Pumpkin made into a sand pail but it completely decorated so Halloweenee
    and filled with all halloween treats, sippy cups, skelton necklace, spider rings - too many items to mention. It are going to be a great hit.
    sorry don't have pictures of them to share
    Hugsssssssss

    I'm also interested in prices, since there are not prices listed under the adult cruise baskets.
    My DH will celebrate his b-day onboard and I was wondering what kinds of things other people have gotten for an adult b-day basket. He'll be 27 :)

    I am so thrilled that the pumpkins mash were such a big hit. The good thing is that it had enough candies to make it nice and yet a bunch of novelties to
    make it fun such as the magic cards, the mummy that could be shaped and of course the skull necklace, ghost bubbles etc. They were just fun stuff and the fact that the faces on the pumpkins were so unique. Norm had fun doing that part. He tried to really make them funny and odd :rotfl2:
    Thanks again for all of those that shared your pictures for it sure brought back the fun I had with them.
    Thanks for trusting me even when I didn't know what I was doing until it came together :woohoo:
    Always
    Shirley

    For DD18 and her friend Shirley put together a basket with some magazines, some pirate glow necklaces, and a few other things I can't recall. For adult friends, she created a "movie basket" with snacks since you have to purchase snacks when you to into the theater unless you get something from room service.

    Does anyone know the latest the baskets can be ordered? We are sailing Nov. 22 and I wanted to know if it is too late to order.

    Hi Shirley--

    The baskets look great! What type of things do you do for 14 year old boys interested in soccer, basketball and video games?

    Thanks--

    Hello to those that are interested in ordering baskets.
    if you will call me here at the shop at 800-950-4559, I can get more ideas than emails.
    thanks for the comments on the gift baskets ----my favorite one so far has been the Halloween idea :-)
    Always
    Shirley

    I ordered on the Tuesday or Wednesday before we cruised on Saturday. I wouldn't recommend waiting until the last minute but I did and Shirley was kind enough to accommodate me. So - I would say that no - it isn't too late to order for the Nov 22 sailing.

    Here is a bag we ordered from Shirley. My daughter loved the surprise from Mickey and Friends. Shirley even personalized it with orange and blue ribbons! Go Gators!

    Thanks for all of the pics! I am convinced that I need to order two baskets for our trip. When do you think it would be best to place an order? We leave April 2.

    I would think 2 weeks out is plenty of time but be sure to call Shirley and see what she says. Especially if want something special that she may have to go out and find. We were pretty easy. We asked for stuff she had in stock but I know she can get pretty much anything from what I hear! Have fun!
