DIY inspirational themed gift basket

Christmas is undoubtedly a very special time of year. Nonetheless, it is also a time of year that seems to bring up extreme emotions for a lot of people. Whether you know someone who is going through a difficult time, or you just want to pass on words of encouragement, an inspirational gift can go a long way especially during the Christmas holiday season.  This holiday season why not put together an inspirational themed gift basket. Gift baskets are easy to assemble, and fun to customize! Peter Pauper Press has a wide selection of gift ideas to put in a DIY inspirational themed gift basket.

Lately there has been one message that women especially connect with, “She Believed She Could, So She Did.” I find this quote so inspiring.  “She Believed” gifts remind her that she can do anything she puts her mind to.

For the upcoming Christmas Season I am choosing to gift my daughter a collection of products featuring the quote “She believed she could, so she did” from Peter Pauper Press.  I am hoping the items with the memorable quote will be her anchor and remind her to never stop fighting and to understand her purpose. We all have a purpose.  After a near death accident that almost took my oldest daughter’s life four years ago God has made it clear that he is not done with her yet.
