So what could go into this basket? Oh you would be amazed at the interesting little items that would fit this theme. Just be sure that you give yourself enough time to really find unique items. And you just never know where you are going to find them, so be ready.
There are lots of ways to package this basket. I have even written an article on the different types of baskets you could use. They can be found here. They range anywhere from a garbage can to a frying pan!
But to help you get started, I’m going to give you a list. Read it over and see if anything would appeal to “your friend” and then copy the items onto a sheet of paper and tuck it into your handbag. Every time you go shopping, read over the list to refresh your mind. But don’t be surprised if you find items that aren’t on the list. That’s half the fun of putting together a gift basket! And you will have fun!
Today’s Gift Basket: Headed Back to School Gift Basket
*waste paper basket… choose one filled with popcorn!
*desk lamp… again, don’t pick one that is boring. Go for something trendy or in keeping with whatever the student happens to be collecting.
*make-over for the desk… (a can of paint and some new handles can make a big difference)
*a baby kitten… just kidding
* magnetic board for idea
* coffee mug
* Cookie Tin
* coffee pot
*poster for the wall
*comfy throw to curl up with
*a scented candle for atmosphere
* magnets for board list above
*new digital camera for new friend’s photos
*collection of pencils, pens, and erasers
If you can think of any other items to go into the basket… just add away!
Be sure to tie off the top with a ribbon and then make a funny card to go along with your Gift Basket. Or you could wrap the entire “basket” in cellophane so that your basket follows a more traditional style.
