Surprise your neighbors, coworkers or bridesmaids with May Day baskets this Wednesday. Traditionally, baskets are filled with fresh cut flowers — which make a great gift — but you can get creative! Give a cupcake with a frosting flower, a pretty potted plant, seed packets or gardening tools and gloves. Create an entire basket of goodies for your department or give comfort items to individual people, like tea and coffee.
As for the basket, anything can be a basket! Handmade paper cones are easy and fun, or think outside the box (or basket!) and use unique items like rain boots filled with goodies, buckets, popcorn boxes or gardening gloves stuffed with seed packets.
Don’t forget to add a tag that says “Happy May Day!” Your name is optional given that the May Day basket tradition is usually anonymous, but certainly doesn’t have to be.
