The Lakeside Collection Hoilday Gift Baskets + Giveaway

The Lakeside Collection provided us with the products mentioned below to facilitate this review and giveaway.

Gift baskets are one of my favorite gift ideas.  You can personalize them to each recipient and fill them with love.  We always take one day to bake a bunch of goodies to go in ours for that extra special touch.  The Lakeside Collection has many creative gift basket ideas along with instructions on how to assemble them.

They sent me everything needed to go inside their Cooking Up Something Special Gift Basket along with the website directions on how to put it together.  The box arrived with all of the goodies ready for me to put together.  The instructions from the website were very easy and allowed me to switch things around if I wanted.

We will make some goodies closer to Christmas that we could add to the basket as well.  This is perfect for anyone who spends time in the kitchen - even for someone who has been cooking for years.  Baking dishes often get broken(I love this set), dish towels get gross, and measuring cups get eaten by drawers.

Want to make your own Gift Basket?  The Lakeside Collection has 5 great tips to build your own gift basket.  Visit The Lakeside Collection to find everything you need to make your baskets special.
