I found a perfect gift to give this year. After an earlier post about the cost of gift giving and such, I am happy to post about a gift I am giving and it only cost $15. This is one of those gifts that fit the budget and will also be a gift that the recipient will really enjoy and it is very useful.
One of the ladies at our church had a Janet basket and she carried everything in it she needed for church. She had her Bible, her lessons for the Sunday School class she taught and many other items stored in it. I really liked it.
So I went to good ole Amazon and found one. Here is what a Janet Basket looks like:
These baskets come in all sorts of pretty designs. There are two sizes: large and small. I purchased the small Janet basket on Amazon about 1 month ago for $15 and at the time the vendor was offering free shipping. The dimensions are 9 inches by 16 inches and it is about 10 inches in depth. The frame is aluminum and the fabric is a very sturdy canvas.
Who will receive this gift? My mother in law. I know that this will be a gift that she will enjoy. It can be used on Sundays to carry her Bible and other items to church or she can put her work related items in it and use it in her car. It could double as a perfect craft carrier or could be used to take to the grocery store for light shopping trips. There is a zipper pouch on the outside which is quite handy and the entire basket folds flat.
So, I got a bargain gift that I know my mother-in-law will really like. Now, if only I could receive the same thing.
