Personal Gift Idea .... Welcome Home Basket (Seattle Themed)

And we finish our week of personal gifts with a basket to someone who moves back or moves to an area.  The sister of my leader of my women's group at church was moving back to the area.  I wanted to make her a little something.  I thought a Welcome Home Basket would be perfect.  Since we live in Seattle I thought why not put together a basket of things about Seattle.  We are known for some great coffee so I went on a hunt for coffee.  Then I went and picked up some Almond Roca, it is made right here in Tacoma.  And of course I needed a sweet treat to put in the bin.  I made some scones that are famous at the Western State (Puyallup) Fair - The recipe will come soon!


What you Need (this is for Seattle - Make if for the City you want)
- Starbucks Drink Packets
- Seattle's Best Coffee
- Tully's Coffee (McDreamy bought it a while back)
- Almond Roca
- Homemade Puyallup Fair Scones
- Bin
- Card Stock for a Logo if you want

You can make this for any city/state you want.  Find the things that make that city special.  We are of course known for Coffee so that was the main theme of my basket.  I could have thrown in some apples too :).  I was going to make a logo but I found this Taste of Seattle one that I printed on Card Stock and sprayed with glue and attached to the basket.  Have fun with it and you can bring a smile to someone's face!


Thanks for Stopping by!
