How to fill
Mugs are so much fun to fill for all, from kids to adults, from sports fans to students.
The idea with mugs is made up of two wonderful parts, making the personal touch all that much more. Part one is the mug, Zazzle and many other places online have mugs and you can pick your family or friend's favorite thing from sport teams and jokes for him to flowers and fairies for her, or pets, animals, pretty designs, movie favs, cartoons, cute and fantasy characters, birds and butterflies, winter and summer forests, oceans, boats, cars and more.
Not only can you find any favorite topic, you can create your own mugs at Walmart or any photo site even Zazzle. Take a favorite photo of the family, or new baby, or the couple in love, your friend's pets, or a photo of the loved one you are sending the gift to, perhaps a fun shot of you and her.
Part two is the filling, there are just as many wonderul ideas for fills. For the student how about pens, pencils, funny erasers, rubber bands, stickers, bookmarks, etc. For teens try body spray samples, hair items, stuffed toy, or cell phone case.
Coffee, tea, or candy lovers are easy, just fill with their favorites. Children are easy too, try small toys, stickers, game cards, crayons, stuffed toy, etc.
For the artist fill with various art supplies, for the gardener put in gloves, seed packs, or a small hand tool.

House Warming Baskets
Many of the ideas above can be used as house warming basket ideas to create the cooks basket, the garden basket, the BBQ basket, the car wash basket, etc.
There are plenty of other ideas as well like, the bookworms basket is a basket filled with books, obviously, all focusing on a theme important to the person. Find out their favorite author or genre. Or the full cheese basket, with cutting board, cheese knife, cheeses, and a bottle of wine. The candle basket for the candle lover would have different size square candles or the same design or color, then some small carved candles like fruit or roses, maybe some floating candles and some small baking scented candles, maybe some attractive candle holders or dishes. You can be very inventive with candle baskets.
The pasta basket is a silver colander filled with sauces, pasta, an italian cookbook, and utensils. The coffee and cocoa basket is a family delight for both kids and parents with coffee samplers, cocoa, a bag of marshmallows, and matching mugs.
Don't forget the personal touch, add anything you like in the housewarming basket that will make it personal. I used to make a lot of housewarming baskets and I made them keeping in mind the first day at the house, what they may need when everything is packed, lol, maybe some dish towels, a bottle of wine, scented candles, a hammer and screwdriver, 2 glasses, 2 mugs, 2 small plates, coffee samplers, cocoa, some jams and crackers, some cookies, maybe an local area magazine, some tea....... put on your thinking cap!
