Gift Basket Making for all Occasions. Gift Bags & Cards too!

Hello, I'm Denise Riley  "The Gift Basket Lady".

I absolutely love making customized gifts and cards for the people that I care about.  I have had this passion for over 30 years. I started out by making personalized "baby shower" gift baskets. After seeing how incredibly thankful the mommies were after receiving my special gift basket, I then decided to make custom gift baskets for many other occasions. I put my heart and soul into every gift basket, gift bag, and gift card that I make. I am always asked by friends and family to wrap there gifts during the holidays! I take that as a huge compliment. I look forward to teaching you some very special techniques that will get you started in making your very own custom gifts that your friends and family will love as well!  It's very rewarding and exciting to see the faces of the people receiving the gift that you custom made for them. A gift made from your heart and soul for someone you love is simply priceless!!!
