When life hands you lemons…

Ah the age old question…what to do when life hands you lemons?  Well there is a lot you can do actually!  One of the best things is to put those lemons into a gift basket and use it to send some cheer.  Because everybody has trials.  Everybody goes through difficult times.  And if you know someone who is right in the middle of one of those dark times let them know you’re rooting for them and will be there to help them make it through to the other side.

This is a fun take on the old saying and each little tag coordinates with a specific item.  You certainly don’t have to use every tag but here are some ideas of what to put inside.

When life hands you lemons:

– Make Lemonade.  (of course.  pair with lemonade)

– Throw them back and yell I wanted chocolate. (with a chocolate bar)

– Be grateful life gave you something. (lemon head candy)

– Sell them on EBAY (cash!)

– Forget lemonade.  Squirt them on lobsters. (silverware wrapped in a cute napkin or gift card to a restaurant.)

– Eat them.  They’re good for you.  Life knows best. (an actual lemon!)

– You could also throw in any lemon scented lotion, candles, or body spray or add in some cute yellow accessories like a necklace or socks.

On a budget?  Each one of these items would make a fun surprise on their own.  It really is the thought and love behind it.

    Love your baskets! Especially this one! As someone going threw chemo with quite a few speed bumps along the way, I think this is a great way to put a smile on someone’s face…may have to treat my fellow chemo goers with some lemon love next week! Thanks for the idea!!!

    This is an amazing idea! My sister is in hospital today having an op after finding out she has cervical cancer. I’m going to make this for her and take when I visit. Both comical and thoughtful, it will hopefully cheer her up! x

    These are SO CUTE! Love them!
    Is there a way to use only one label? I wanted to enlarge the one that mentions chocolate (so funny!) and make a page of those labels. Any way to do that?
