8 Creative Gift Basket Ideas

Gift basket ideas for the homebody, spa lover, DIYer, entertainer, baker, movie lover, and coffee fanatic.

I’m calling it. Christmas shopping is DONE! I have to tell myself to “officially” stop or else I’ll just end up giving my heart out right up until the day.

Having the gift giving love language might be a blessing and a curse in that regard. 😉

But I truly can’t help it. I LOVE giving little treats to teachers and neighbors and the mail man and the garbage pickup crew. It’s a big reason why I love this time of year, not for the receiving but for the giving.

This year, since so many of us are staying home, I decided to put together “experiences” in the form of gift baskets for our neighbors. I didn’t want to give people “stuff”. I wanted to create a moment for them, whether that was in the form of a movie night on the couch or a ‘smores making evening in the backyard or a cookie decorating afternoon in the kitchen.

8 Creative gift basket ideas for the homebody, spa lover, DIYer, entertainer, baker, movie lover, and coffee fanatic.

So I pulled together 8 fun gift basket ideas, if you need out-of-the-box ideas for friends, family members, or neighbors.

I picked up everything from Walmart using free curbside pickup for most of the items in stores, and for everything else I was able to have them delivered using free 2-day shipping.

If you’re in a time crunch as Christmas gets closer, you can use same-day delivery service too. And you can use Walmart’s “Gift Finder” tool to make it easier to search curated lists for gift ideas.

I plan to just leave these little kits on our neighbors’ porches for them to enjoy.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make a gift basket look expensive?

Something as simple as a tied satin ribbon, crinkle paper filler, and a personalized tag can make an old basket feel luxurious. If you want to make a gift basket seem even more expensive, place it inside of a cellophane gift bag.

How should I decide what kind of gift basket to give?

Think about your friend or family member’s lifestyle. A mom with young children might love a movie night gift basket. A newlywed couple who loves to entertain would likely prefer a sangria kit (though check first that they drink alcohol). A grandmother who loves being in the kitchen might love a baking kit.
