There is something about receiving a gift basket that gets me giddy! It’s so much fun to dig through and see all the different pieces that pull it together. I’ve searched high and low on the web to bring you the BEST ideas I could find – and they all follow the Rule of One gift idea. Simply gather the amount of supplies you’ll need to make multiple baskets and have an assembly party.
Oh and before you check out these beauties I wanted to share a tip that I thought was AWESOME! Sometimes the basket itself can be the most expensive part of the gift which is a real bummer. Go to your local thrift store and check out the selection – there are usually a TON! Of course you can use a basket “as is” or even better yet you can spray paint it to go with your theme: silver, gold, red or green. I guarantee you can score a basket for $1 or less if you take this extra step!
Oh my goodness – a “Christmas Morning Coffee” gift basket! I LOVE this idea and can’t believe I haven’t thought of it before. This is the perfect neighbor gift and doesn’t take much prep at all since most things are prepackaged. Make it extra special by adding some homemade baked goods from your kitchen. There are even FREE Printable Gift Tags to go along with it. Check it out here.

“Cookie Decorating” in a basket! How great to gift a friend, teacher or coworker with all the things they need to get it done. Take this one step further and bake the cut-out cookies ahead of time and include them in the basket – all they have to do is decorate! I’m pretty sure they will LOVE you for this. Check it out here.
