Gift Basket Themes

(This might be a hundred-year-oldĀ idea, but I hadn’t heard of it until about 10 years ago.) Traditionally, we present these baskets to the bride-to-be at bachelorette parties, but they’re so fun, you could give one to the love of your life.

It’s called a “No Excuses” basket (derived from the thought that there should be “no excuses” on your wedding night), and it contains solutions for every excuse not to fool around! Here are just a few of the things we always include:

Lots of multicolored and textured condoms
Whipped cream
Minty mouthwash, dental floss, toothbrush & toothpaste
Edible undies
Chocolate syrup
Vivarin or No Doz
KY Jelly
Soothing aromatic lotion or body oil
Chocolate candies

Of course, you can include many more fun and interesting (and risque!) items, but this gives you an idea of what goes into the basket. It’s so much fun putting these together, but it’s even more fun watching the surprised faces of the people opening them!!
