Colorful and beautiful baskets, that’s what May Day is for. During this holiday, people create great baskets filled with flowers and/or treats and leave them at someone’s doorstep.

If the receiver accurately guesses who the giver is, a kiss will have to be exchanged.
So, let’s get ready to impress someone with an amazing basket and probably you’ll be the lucky winner of a kiss! Use these basket ideas to show your creativity and spontaneity:
