This year I am going to be baking for our loved ones and DH came up with the idea of doing gift baskets that contain breakfast baked goods that can be enjoyed Christmas morning.
This idea sprouted from the fact that I have a recipe for banana bread that is very good.
Any other ideas for what to put into a baked goods breakfast basket? I am trying to keep my costs reasonable but we will only be making this gift basket for probably less than five people so we can do a bit of splurging... I am looking to spend probably less than $75 or $100 for all of them.
My other question regarding Christmas. I have worked for my father/stepmother for several years and about six months ago, we had a long-coming falling out.
Although my father and I have a cordial (hug when I see him, say "I love you" still) relationship, we do not talk outside of work. This comes from the fact that his wife is, well, the devil. Ha-ha. Anyway, my question is... should I give him a baked good basket?
I would do this for my boss, so I think that I should for him but I guess I'm not sure how to address the card as it would obvious if I make it out only to him, excluding his wife... but if I write "Merry Christmas" to both of them, it's a little hypocritical because she and I have open hostility.
I know this is a long question, but any advice would be appreciated.
