One big advantage to being an effective couponer is getting items free or close to free. These items are great to have on hand when you need to make a quick gift basket. Although I'm getting better, I'm almost embarrassed to say that I'm horrible about remembering to buy gifts and have them wrapped nicely in time to give. Being the interior designer that I am, I'm sure people expect fancy, elaborate wrapping. Its sad to say but I normally disappoint in that area. However, now that I'm starting to build a stockpile of random things, I can quickly pull together a fabulous basket in no time. The basket in the photo is one that I gave to my mom for her birthday this past weekend. It includes a Glade Flameless Candle, Loreal Revitalift Cleansing Wipes, Glade Plug In Scented Oil Refill and samples of Curel lotion.
