Spread joy and good cheer with these adorable (and easy-to-make!) food baskets

Want a fun, simple solution to all your holiday shopping? Assemble creative gift baskets that suit anyone on your list. Start with a sturdy but inexpensive wicker basket; craft stores have the best selection at reasonable prices. Or assemble your gift items in wooden milk crates, produce baskets, large ceramic bowls, or fabric-covered boxes. Fill with shredded paper (use old magazines for a more colorful filler), raffia, new dishtowels, or curled ribbon. Then shop for the items listed below-we've included a shopping list for each one, minus the perishables. Fill your baskets, clip the recipes, and tuck them into the baskets. Done and done.
