Then, I headed over to HomeGoods to look for some cooking essentials.

I used a large, round basket with handles as a gift basket to house my items.

Everyone can use a great new frying pan, and this one is great quality and it’s very stylish! I just love the wood-look handle.

I found these gorgeous copper utensils and the perfect jar to display them in.

I love how they have wood handles that match the pan handle.  These little details are what help make this gift so special and personalized.
