Baskets for a Benefit for Hunter Erb

Yesterday I spent part of the day putting some gift baskets together.  My daughter and son-in-law bought them to donate to a silent auction to benefit their little nephew Hunter Erb.  Thank you, Shannon and Jon. 

Hunter was born prematurely in November 2011.  After spending a month in the hospital, he got to come home.  He is still on oxygen and will have open heart surgery soon.  And did I mention that he is completely adorable?  He is such a cutie pie.  The benefit is to raise money to help the family with the many expenses associated with the surgery.

Here are some of the baskets I put together:

These are two of the soaps tucked in the basket for Mom, Dad and baby. Isn’t the Onsie soap cute? The mold is from Bramble Berry.  The bottom one is Feel Good Spa Soap.  It has essential oils that are said to be uplifting and balancing.  I thought that might be something the parents can use.

This is a shaving set.  The washcloth is a 100% cotton knit cloth made by the mother of a dear friend of mine.

Oatmeal cold process soap is one of my best sellers.  So is the Oatmeal, Milk and Honey lotion bar.  The oatmeal cookie wax waffle makes my mouth water!  And the oatmeal cookie lip balm is delicious.  Using it keeps me from eating the wax waffle.


The birthday gift set has a birthday cupcake candle in a mason jar, a birthday cupcake soap (it's in a plastic box), a cupcake lotion bar and a buttercream frosting wax waffle.  Oh, and the lip balm is vanilla ice cream.

My thoughts and prayers will be with Hunter and his family now in the coming months as they walk through this challenging time in their lives.  If you are interested in donating money to help Hunter’s family, please email me at  I’ll let you know the name and address of the bank that is handling donations.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Love the soaps, love the mold and love the compassion you are showing. Our thoughts are with Hunter and his family as well.
