Make Affordable Holiday Gift Baskets

Gift baskets are a great gift for families. You can make your own Holiday Gift Baskets inexpensively and easily using some of the ideas below.

Start with a basket or container. Throughout the year, watch for inexpensive baskets wherever you go. I find great baskets of all shapes and sizes at dollar stores. However, you aren limited by baskets. Use anything from a popcorn tin to a beach pail filled with goodies for an inexpensive gift.

There are a zillion themes to choose from and they very fun to make. Here are just a few ideas, but the possibilities are endless.

Fill a basket with classic movie theater snacks, like Junior Mints and Raisinettes. Include a few familyfriendly DVDs. Don forget the microwaveable popcorn.

Fill a basket with gourmet coffee and tea, muffin mix, pancake mix and syrup, jellies and jams and other yummy breakfast treats. Line the basket with the funnies from the newspaper. Include coloring books and crayons to keep the kids busy while Mom and Dad fix breakfast.

This is a great gift for scrapbookers. Include the basics of what they need to create a family memory book an album, papers and embellishments, markers, a glue stick. Include a disposable camera for each child in the family in the basket so that their memories in the making can be captured through their eyes. You can even include a few photos of the family that you already have to help them get started.

The holidays do not need to cost a fortune. You can give thoughtful Holiday Gift Baskets to family and friends to show you care. Read our full Terms of Service.
