  1. I didn’t see the one pictured with a stuffed crockpot under the basket list. The picture makes me think it’s a great idea, but I can’t really tell what is included!

    1. This was a customized gift from an Etsy seller that isn’t available any more, darn it! But she included a cookbook, some nice glasses, and a bottle of wine. We thought it would be cute to include the {non-perishable} ingredients of your favorite crockpot meal as well.
