If you are looking for a great, last minute gift without fighting the crowds, build a gift basket filled with awesome little gifts. Here are several variations that will help you to find the right gift for everyone that’s still left on your list!
The Car Lover: Grab a bucket, and load it with waxes, car cleaners, sponges, shammies, glass cleaner, and one of those ubiquitous green tree air fresheners! Wrap up the whole thing in cellophane, and wrap with a ribbon. You can even add a car-related ornament or a Matchbox car for fun!
The Coffee Obsessed: Grab some coffee beans, flavor syrups, a coffee mug, and some creamer and add the whole thing to a cute little basket! The coffee lover in your life will love it!
The Tea Drinker: If someone you know loves their tea, build them a basket they’ll never forget! Get a tea ball, honey, a tea mug, bags of tea or loose tea leaves, and a book or magazine about teas. They’ll love it!
Home Spa Kit: Every woman in your life would love a home spa kit! In a bucket big enough for them to soak their feet, put bath salts, aromatherapy candles and body washes, foot soaks, pumice stones, nail kits, and loofahs for the perfect day at the spa, right at home!
Italian Dinner in a Basket: Grab some gourmet noodles, pasta sauce, and a bottle of wine, and put it in a colander! Add a recipe card, along with some french bread and tie it up for the perfect Italian meal at home.
Super Fruits: Fill a basket with fresh produce from the supermarket. You can’t go wrong with this one! Just add their favorite fruits and veggies, then garnish with some fresh herbs!
The Airplane Basket: Grab a champagne ice pail and a selection of airplane bottles from the ABC store. You can even add mini bottles of mixers, recipes, and little shot glasses too!
The PB&J Basket: Build the perfect sandwiches with homemade jellies, jams, honey, preserves, peanut butter, almond butter, and anything else you can find at the Farmer’s Market! Put it all in a rustic, homemade basket for a great, down home look anyone will love!
