Giving Thanks with a Gratitude Basket

Our family started a new Thanksgiving tradition this year with a gratitude basket pictured below. Toddler boss and I made it to the crafts store just in time (10/31) to grab the last of the fall-themed items before the Christmas turnover. Sad, but true.

Thanksgiving Gratitude Basket

Throughout the month of November, we've asked each person present in our home, including extended family and friends, to take a moment to think about something that s/he is thankful for and write it down on a notecard to place in the basket.  
It's now Thanksgiving Day and our basket is literally overflowing with gratitude. 

One of the things that I am so, so grateful for is the opportunity that I've had over the past two years to build BambiniWare. I never imagined that all those late nights/early mornings in my basement while toddler boss was asleep were setting the stage for a dream that I couldn't yet see. I never imagined either that hearing or reading about my story could inspire so many other women to think and act beyond their own boundaries too.

I'm also especially grateful for and to each of you. I'm grateful for your support of my Life in the Mommy Lane blog, your BambiniWare purchases, your positive energy and your notes that you always seem to send me exactly when I need them most. And, most of all, I'm grateful to you for choosing to be a part of my story.


Add a gratitude basket to your Thanksgiving festivities and leave it out throughout the holiday season. Then, on December 31st, go through all of your cards. There's nothing like starting off a new year with the spirit of Thanksgiving in your heart.

To make a basket like ours, wrap garland around the perimeter of your basket and 2 1/2" ribbon around the handle.  Place curly raffia in the bottom of the basket until you have enough cards to fill the basket.  We used small sheets of neutral-colored cardstock and gold Sharpies for the notecards.
