No, not your typical apple, but a chocolate apple….
I saw these apples at Purdy’s Chocolates and thought I would use them to show how you can take a simple, store-bought item and easily turn it into a more personalized gift.
By placing the apple inside a wooden basket and adding items such as raffia, colored twine and a matching card, I was able to add some interest and create a fun little presentation.
Since my oldest daughter had so many teachers this year, I ended up putting a couple of these baskets together (along with the galvanized buckets I had done from the previous post) for year-end gifts. I joined in with a couple of wonderful moms from her class and the final product included the apple, some cookies, and a gift card to Starbucks — it was adorable!
