Gift Baskets – any item or items with a specific theme that can be put together and wrapped – it can be related to sports, kitchen or cooking, bath or beauty, travel, etc. These can come from you or from a business that’s willing to donate one. We’ll even do the wrapping for you!

Pick-a-Stick Gifts – any single item you may have in your home or may have received as a gift but maybe have no use for (such as kitchen utensils, platters, costume jewelry, decorative ceramics, picture frames, perfumes, etc).  As long as they’re new/never been used, we would appreciate it!

Gift Certificates –for just about anything, would be great!
