Bread and Strawberry Butter in Basket

Whether you make homemade bread or buy a loaf at your local bakery or grocery store, it will make a great gift. 

For this bread gift, in a basket there is a small cutting board, bread, bread knife and a jar of Strawberry Whipped Butter. 

Then a simple bow and a piece of greenery to brighten it up a bit.
