Hand-me-down Gift Basket

For all of us who are parents, some of our kids never got the chance to wear an outfit because they grew too fast, it was stuck under other things and forgotten about, tags are still left on the clothing, or your children wore it a handful of times yet it’s still in perfect condition.

My husband made a comment about how much he liked the Kellogg’s bars...
