Making Your Own Gift Baskets

Have you considered making your own gift baskets for Valentine's Day gifts? There are plenty of healthier and more natural alternatives to the standard items. Most larger natural food stores have a good sized cosmetics section. You can find things like great smelling body lotions, makeup, perfumes, soaps, etc... Also check out the dark organic chocolates.

Making your own products is another alternative. Here is a simple recipe for a yummy chocolate candy I sometimes make in a gift-giving pinch.

One cup chocolate chips.
1/4 cup chopped nuts

Melt chocolate in microwave or over a double burner. Stir in nuts. Drop on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and let harden in the fridge.
