The basket pattern that I'm working with is good size. About 10"x6"x8" not including the handles. It makes for a lot of storage. Still working out my extra little gift I am making. Does it have to be sewn? That would narrow my choices down either way. Will be putting on final touches to basket this weekend I hope.
Your extra has to be one small crafted item. If you make something according to your partners likes, you are doing great! So you could knit, crochet, papercraft, clay, make jewellery... The possibilities are endless! Just check your partners likes and get inspired! Good luck and have fun!!
Thanks for the info. That helps alot. Now I know what I am doing.
