Healing Baskets: A Different Kind of Company

Courage Doesn't Always Roar BasketWe all know what the typical gift basket looks like – a lot of fussy bows and a grab bag of low cost, low quality fillers. At Healing Baskets, we work every day to build a very different type of basket – in fact, we’ve created our entire company around HEALING baskets. At Healing Baskets, we embraces those subjects we’re barely able to tiptoe around – illness, cancer, the loss of a loved one, miscarriage, depression, 12-step recovery gifts, and Caregivers. 

I feel so blessed that, through my business, I’m able to match my passion with my mission: to support those who are suffering. I try to create something amazing new with each basket.  For instance, when I discovered Mary Anne Radmacher’s book, “Courage Doesn’t Always Roar,” I contacted the author to talk about how inspiring it was and then designed a special Healing Basket with a custom-made Anne Radmacher Mug, created for, and available only through Healing Baskets, Inc.  Of course, we added special small touches to this basket, like warrior engraved soap, a ‘Courage’ Reiki Candle and holder made from essential oils, and a few other things, including the softest comfy socks! The Courage Does Not Always Roar basket reminds us that some days, ‘success’ is just getting out of bed. 

My favorite baskets are probably those born when the customer calls to ask me to help them create a customized, original Healing Basket. Where each item is specifically chosen from one friend to another to support, to heal, and to simply say, “I’m here for you.” Healing Baskets takes great pride in sending that message countless times every single day.  Http://www.HealingBaskets.com
