Gas station gift baskets, last minute holiday ideas
You might not think that your local gas station had much to offer in the range of holiday gifts, but if you’re down to the wire, it’s the perfect place to “fill up”! At least that's what Jolene Sugarbaker thinks.
Jolene says grab a few baskets, bags or containers from home and tap into your clever side. Whacky-themed gift baskets are always a hit and you can throw them together while driving to grandma’s house!
