Giving In More Ways Than One This Holiday Season

While it is fun and exciting to receive presents during the holidays, many would agree that it is the act of giving that is most rewarding. There is certainly something magical in watching the face of a loved one light up after opening a gift that you have thoughtfully selected.

What can make gift giving even more special, however, is knowing that your gift gives back to someone in need – which is what you’ll find with our handmade gift baskets.

When you buy a themed gift basket or “build your own” gift basket from Aunt Laurie’s, 
you’re not just buying a present for a loved one, you’re also supporting career opportunities for adults with physical, mental or emotional disabilities. 


Many of the products included in our baskets are handcrafted by individuals with 
disabilities, who are employed by organizations throughout the nation, while the baskets themselves are hand-woven and assembled by clients at the South Carolina Vocational Rehabilitation Department, which helps prepare individuals with disabilities for employment.

You’ll find that our holiday-themed gift baskets, such as this X-Large“Christmas in the South”, includes coffee from “Our Coffee With a Cause”, which provides young adults with disabilities the opportunity for employment through labeling, packaging and delivery, as well as a hand painted trivet by members at “People for Exceptional Programs.”

So, you see, our gift baskets are not only the perfect way to say “Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas” to someone you care about, but are also the perfect way to give back this holiday season. How splendidly magical is that? 

‘Tis the season of giving – and a very Merry Christmas to all!
