Easy and Frugal Gift Idea

Here's a great gift idea for someone who likes spending time in the kitchen.  In my case, I had already planted a bunch of seeds a while back for my own use so had some young plants already grown.  I also put in a few extra seeds so there will be some new growth in a few weeks.

Terracotta pot and saucer $4.48
Potting Mix $2.50
Basil Seeds $2.99
Gift Ribbon - $0, recycled from old gift

Total $9.97

The seeds and potting mix can also be used again for personal use, so in fact it's a lot less than $10 for a lot, more like $5!  Nice!

My gift recipient was thrilled with her gift.
