Items to Put In Baskets:
Cute Socks or Slippers
Glass figurines & collectibles
Specialty coffees or teas
The Dollar Tree is a great place to get cheap baskets, your basket “stuffing,” and the gift items to put in your basket.
Hobby Lobby and Micheal’s also carry baskets and the supplies you’ll need to beautify your baskets, and you should be able to get these items on sale in the next two weeks.
Wal-Mart & Target are great places to get your basket supplies. And if you’d like to make some gift baskets but are on a budget, the Dollar Bin at Target always has an excellent selection of seasonal items.
Shopping Ahead: Since I’ve started blogging, I often get a lot of holiday ideas after I’ve already made what I’m going to make for the current holiday, so I find myself saving a lot of ideas for later. If this is the case with you as well, and you like buying stuff ahead of time, I recommend going to Wal-Mart the day after Valentine’s and buying some stuffed animals while they’re 50% off. Then you can pack them up and use them in gift baskets next year.
