Gift Basket Joy! Generous local businesses stuff our Baskets of Love for upcoming 2013 Christmas concerts

Year two of my "Baskets of Love" project and the basket goodies fairly fell into my hands as I approached our local retailers!

All our Gift Baskets are filled with Stairwell Caroller Christmas CDs, assorted goodies such as specialty teas, coffee, biscuits, cookies, tapenade, dipping oils, crackers and of course, chocolate. In addition, I've included the CD Rom version of our cookbook, Eatwell -- which my husband and our director, Pete, designed to open nicely in a browser window. The Eatwell Cookbook CD even includes a selection of unpublished songs for you to enjoy while you browse the recipes.

Topped off with tree decorations and a bow, the basket will make a great Christmas gift for a Music and chocolate lover!

Each basket is unique and priced according to the number of Christmas CDs included -- and remember, you have a chance to win one as a door prize at the concert reception after!

Time for Thanks --

A giant box of snowy silver and white spring fill -- thank you!
Kit and Kaboodles in Manotick was so quick to fulfill my requests for shiny bows and "spring fill", we gave them an ad in our program booklet as thanks. Spool of thread in the photo gives you an idea of the size of the box !

Loblaws in Baarhaven gave us a $100 gift card to spend on goodies to fill the baskets.
Patty and I had fun on that shopping trip!

Giant Tiger in Manotick gave us 26 packs of Ferraro Rocher -- Yum!

Starbucks in Baarhaven gave us two travel mugs, coffee packets and a cute Starbucks ceramic tree decoration.

Baarhaven Wal-Mart gifted us $25 to spend -- goes a long way when  they pay the tax -- thanks!

Coffee, fancy chocolate and biscuits, please!
At the last minute,  
Home Depot In Baarhaven gave us $50 -- and I spent it on tree decorations as an added Christmassy item.

Shatter proof and lovely!

Baskets will be available at our concerts at the CD table. As always, proceeds support our charitable efforts in the community.

Baskets will also be given as door prizes at the receptions after the concerts, see you there!
