Where can I get containers to make gift baskets?

I want to make my kids teacher gift baskets with things like tastefully simple. I like their gift baskets and bins but they are to pricey for what I want to buy. Anyone know where to get some nice big size baskets or buckets at a reasonable cost. I lvoe the refreshment tin in the tastefully simple catalog but its not worth $35 for just the bucket. I would rather buy more food for them but still want it to look nice.

  • Places like A.C.More or JoAnn's Fabrics sell baskets and stuff pretty cheap. Most craft stores.

  • Actually, if you have a Ross or Marshall's, I've bought baskets and other containers from the for half the regular cost. You could also make a "gift bag" out of like a book tote or something since its for a teacher too. I've seen those before and they are cute also.
