      I’ve been thinking about making these for christmas gifts this year, but I’m not sure what else to include in the gift basket.. any ideas?

      I would add a handmade ornament or another crafty item (lots of them here to choose from) and maybe some home made cookies or candies.

      If your making soap, I would keep with the Bathroom theme and make a potpourri gift basket and some other bath items.
