Bummer Baskets

1/19/2012


When I arrived back home after the holidays I was greeted by a box on my doorstep, a gift from my friend Kristine. Opening it up was pretty much the best thing ever, because it was a Bummer Basket!

The Brooklyn-based company puts together "care packages for unfortunate life events." Kristine just thought it was a cute idea (she was right!) and sent one to each of our girlfriends for Christmas. My Bummer Basket (pictured above) came with a sock monkey, a grow-your-own-Xmas-tree, brownies, cupcake pops, a chocolate bar, a stemless wine glass and more.

Stay tuned for a giveaway from Bummer Baskets in time for Valentine's Day! Seriously, you'll want to win one of these.

This is such a cute idea. You could also easily make it yourself. I think it must be lots of fun to work for the brand that makes these, too. It`s also a very thoughtful gift of your friend!
