Things to Put in a Winter Gift Basket

Winter can be harshly cold but fun too. A gift basket with winter goodies will make the season even better. 

Winter has little chilly to viciously cold days. Accented with plenty of the white stuff in some places while not so much in other areas. It is a good time to cuddle up by a fire and have a hot drink or bundle up and brave the outdoors for some outdoor fun.
