Gift Basket Ideas

I have decided this year to give out gift baskets to just about everybody on my list. My question is what are some good gift basket themes.

I plan on doing a few movie night ones (movie, popcorn, & favorite soda)

My mind went blank on other themes though. Any ideas?

  • You can do a spa basket with lotions, soaps, a loofah, bubble bath and bath salts

    A mani/pedi basket with a nail file, polish remover pads, orangewood sticks, cuticle oil, peppermint foot lotion and a couple polishes.

  • For kids you can make an art basket with coloring books, sketch pads, crayons, colored pencils, washable markers, stamps and ink.

  • Lemonade pitcher filled with lemons, matching cups, yellow napkins

    I sell Mary Kay so I fill baskets with facial/body products

    We always do the movie baskets too, for my cousins. We use the Orville Reddenbacher popcorn bucket as a base and put in candy and movie tickets.

    You could also Google "gift baskets" under images and see what pops up. Then try to re-create the ideas you like.

  • Men - the "basket" is an oil pan, then include oil, car wash cleaning soap, a sponge, various cleaning or fuel enhancer bottles, an air/tire gauge, etc.

    Men - fishing - include bait, lures, hooks, etc.

    Men - a "clean" basket - cologne or spray, body wash for men (bath and body works has some great stuff now), soap on a rope LOL, etc.
