Gift Baskets Custom Made and Delivered

Kit & Caboodle was started as a mail order gift basket business, but bloomed into a fun shop in Old Town Alexandria. Now located in a shop in Old Town's Crilley Warehouse building, gift and party items are also available. Baskets may include:

  • chocolates and other confections
  • teas and tea biscuits
  • pampering spa gifts
  • stuffed animals
  • toys
  • party favors
  • activities and games
  • dress-up items and more.

They are the perfect gift for a recovering patient, client, hostess, teacher or bride, and just about any occasion.


Kit & Caboodle prides itself on creating custom baskets to meet the specific needs of their customers. Each basket is prepared with the individual recipient in mind. A breakfast tray, pasta basket, tea and tea items for a tea lover, snacks for a college student, small toys for a sick child who can't have food items, themed baskets for a business meeting, appetizer items presented on a tray…to name a few. You will appreciate the individualized attention!
