It's November and my brain is starting to think in "Christmas mode" again. I truly love the season, and I always try to give as many handmade gifts as I can. My Gifts in a Tin ideas from last year were so well loved (as of today, almost a million Pins!!) that I thought I'd kick off November again with another week of gifts in tins! This week, I'll share with you some ideas for creative gift baskets that you can give to your friends or neighbors for Christmas (and some will work for any time of the year). Each gift in a tin idea will come with free printables so that you can make your gift look extra special! Today, you can also find some more DIY Christmas gift ideas from my fellow Canadian blogger friends at the bottom of this post. Today, this week, and this entire month will be filled with handmade gift ideas galore! Woohoo!
The first gift in a tin idea is this Mom's Day Off In A Tin. Mom's need a break, and what better way to encourage a special mom in your life to indulge in one than to give her a kit with everything she needs!
In this gift basket, I've used:
- a large tin basket
- glittery scrapbook paper (for the wrapper around the tin)
- twine string
- a magazine (my favourite - Style at Home!)
- bottle of face mask
- bath pillow
- shower gel & lotion (similar is here)
- shower pouf
What are some other things you could include in a gift tin like this? What about some tea bags, a mug or some wine?

I used a piece of glittery scrapbook paper to tie around my tin, but you could also use ribbon or a scrap piece of fabric. I punched small holes in the tops of the round tags, and tied them around the tin handle with twine.
This gift in a tin is a sweet way to let someone you care about know that you're thinking about them. All mamas need a break every now and then!
Come back tomorrow for another unique gift in a tin idea!
