I had a lot of fun putting my basket together! I have things for the kitchen, the baker, the snacker and the girly girl! They are all items I use and love!
Hand selected items from me, TidyMom that are sure to make that special someone’s smile extra bright this holiday season!

For the Kitchen and the Baker:
I professed my love for Bridget and her mad cookie decorating skills just the other day, her Decorating Cookies book is one of my new favorite things that I know will get a lot of use when I decorate cookies from now on! I wish I could give this book to everyone! Wilton’s Gift from the Kitchen is another book I love to reference, especially during the holidays! It has gift giving recipes and ideas for every occasion! I also tossed in some of my favorite Wilton tools that have multiple uses in my kitchen and are used often! Last but not least, every kitchen needs a jar of Vanilla Bean paste! Aside from my homemade vanilla extract, this is my favorite ingredient, especially in recipes where you want to see flecks of vanilla, like frosting, butter cookies, pound cake or Italian ice!
For the Snacker:
This obviously could have been a basket full of snacks! lol But I decided to narrow it down to a few of my favorite snacks that I’ve discovered thru blogging. Biscoff Cookies and Nutella! I can’t buy the Biscoff cookies very often, because I will eat the whole bag in just a few short days, but they are great in recipes, like Biscoff Banana Partfaits. The Nutella & Go is a snack I keep in my car, so when I’m out running errands, I can get my Nutella fix! lol Our pantry usually has a few jars for baking and finger dipping.
The Sean White Gum, well, that’s more like an addiction. If you know me, when I’m out of the house, I’m usually chewing gum (you never know who you’ll bump into and need fresh breath!) I received a sample of Stride Whitemint Sean White gum at the store well over a year ago, and was hooked. I always have at least 2 packs in my purse, and a few extras in the house for back up!
For the Girly Girl
Of course I had to go with my favorite Benefit mascara that I’ve told you about and my favorite Sephora Lip Gloss that I raved about! They are both products I could not go with out! The Burt’s Bees lip balm is a MUST every night before I go to bed for years.
I would like to send my Favorite Things Under $25 basket to one lucky TidyMom reader!
