Whether it is for holidays, birthdays, or just because we want to, a lot of us have a reason to give children gifts. One fun idea is making a gift basket for them. You can have fun deciding what to add to it and how much to spend. Putting together the basket is easy and you can find inexpensive toys for them.
I’m going to share some tips to help you create an inexpensive boys’ toy gift basket. This will include what to buy and where to buy them (the list is not just limited to these stores, but they are just examples).
Buying an inexpensive gift basket is easy. Gift baskets come in different shapes, sizes, material, and colors, and for reasonable prices at that. The first place I would suggest in The Dollar Tree or any dollar store. With the price of everything being one dollar, this is a great store to go to when on a budget. Especially if you want to buy more than one basket. Other stores I would suggest checking out is Wal-Mart and Five Below. You could possibly find them at Target, The Family Dollar, and Big Lots as well.
The Tissue Paper.
You don’t need to use tissue paper when making a gift basket, but some people like to. Tissue paper comes in different pack sizes, colors, and patterns. I have gotten atleast six to a pack for one dollar. Most places that sell tissue paper offer them at reasonable prices. I would suggest checking out The Dollar Tree, Five Below, Wal-Mart, Target, and The Family Dollar.
It’s now time to buy the boys’ toys for the gift baskets. While some toys do get expensive, you can still find some nice toys for decent prices. Here are a few toys I have seen for good prices: Hot Wheels Cars or similar toy cars, Legos (usually smaller boxes), G.I. Joe, and stuffed animals. I have seen G.I. Joe figures (with no accessories) at Dollar General stores for just a few bucks. I have also seen WWE wrestling figures for three to five dollars at The Family Dollar, Five Below, and similar stores. Depending on the age, you can also add trading cards or card games (such as Magic, Pokemon, and WWE), pillows, and if you would like, candy, which can all be found at various stores for decent prices.
If you decide to look at The Dollar Tree, you can find action figures, magic sets, toy cars, and boys’ dress up sets (such as cowboys or police officers). All of these are only a dollar each.
General items that can be found almost anywhere for great prices include arts and crafts, coloring books, crayons, colored pencils, construction paper, socks with patterns on them, a grow-a-towel, playing cards, stickers, and storybooks.
Once you get everything you need, put them all together in the basket, there you go. You will have your inexpensive gift basket of boys’ toys that will make someone very happy!
