So for the last few years I’ve blogged about advent baskets. If you don’t know what an advent basket is or how to do it, click here to read my post on that!!
Just a friendly reminder… Even though Fall has just started its time to start planning now! You want to deliver your basket by December 1st so that means all organizing, shopping, and wrapping has to be done by the end of November. Trust me– it sneaks up on you!!
I remember when I received my advent basket. It was during a really difficult time during our struggle with infertility that I had some dark days. I was dreading the holidays since its expected you be joyful and I was anything but. I was so shocked and surprised when I first saw it. And it was DELIGHTFUL! Two of my friends had organized for multiple women to contribute gifts and cards filled with encouragement. Every morning I was so excited to wake up and open my gift and I cried at most of them. It made what could have been an exceptionally hard Christmas so much better!
I thought it would be fun to share stories of how you’ve blessed someone with a basket or been blessed yourself.
So tell me– what’s your experience with advent baskets? Please leave a comment!
