Hit by the lawnmower --> Recycled Garden Hose Baskets - great idea for planter baskets, too.
hahaha this might be a little more than i could tackle, but it's creative! gift baskets are really the best when you think outside of the basket. because, really, who uses baskets for anything else besides gifts? a basket is just going to sit in someone's garage until they re-gift it to someone else. for a garden gift basket, use a zip-tied hose, a watering can, a flower pot, or if you want to go big, a wheel barrow. fill it with garden tools, potting soil, fertilizer, bulbs, seeds, gloves, etc.
Garden hose basket - make one; fill with gardening goodies for a wedding shower or housewarming gift!
