When it comes to any gift giving occasions, making a gift basket can be nice. The gifts you include and how much you spend on the basket is up to you. This is great for people who are on a budget, love to put together gift baskets, or both! Finding everything you need for a gift basket is easy.
I have a few tips for putting together an inexpensive gift basket for girls. Not a toy gift basket, but stuff maybe for older girls or girls who have interests besides toys. These tips include suggestions of what to buy and where you can find them.
The first think you may want to purchase is a gift basket. Gift baskets come in different shapes ( usually round or square) and sizes. You can get any kind of baskets, some you may even find after the holidays. For example, Easter baskets. This is good, because if gives you a bit more variety for colors and patterns. You can hard, bucket-like gift baskets, or the traditional woven ones.
You can find gift baskets for decent prices at The Dollar Tree and Wal-Mart. You could also probably find them at Target, Big Lots, and Five Below. If you ask me, I would check The Dollar Tree first. Spending a dollar on a basket is great for budgeting and will allow you to purchase more than one.
You don’t have to use tissue paper if you don’t want to. But if you decide you do want to, then this section is for you. Tissue paper comes in different colors, patterns, and even packs. This will fit in with whatever gift basket you plan to put together. You can get a pack of tissue paper for just a dollar or so at most places. I have found tissue paper at The Dollar Tree, The Family Dollar, Wal-Mart, Five Below, and Target.
Finding items for girls’ (besides toys) gift baskets can be pretty easy. There are a lot of items you can include in your gift baskets. You can go with make-up items, such as lip balm, lip gloss, nail polish, blush, eye shadow, a mirror, and a make-up bag. Bath and body items (scented or unnscented), such as shampoo, conditioner, body was, body spray, hand or body lotion, bubble bath, and a scrubbie. Hair care products can include shampoo, conditioner, detangler, a hair brush, comb, hair scrunchies, headbands, and mirror. You may even want to include hair coloring that comes out in one or very few washes. Of course, there is always jewelry, including bracelets, necklaces, rings, earrings (if they have pierced ears), and anklets. If you just want general items you can add besides those that were named, there’s always candles and incense, stuffed animals, electronic accessories (such cell phone cases and charms), books, stickers, and such. All of this will depend on the girl, her interests, and age. You can do a basket in just one theme or mix everything up. You may even find more products to add yourself.
That is a lot of items, right? You are probably wondering where you could find them for decent prices. The first two places I would suggest is The Dollar Tree and Five Below. They are both very inexpensive and do have nice things. At Five Below, nothing is over five dollars and mist of what I named can be found there as well as The Dollar Tree. I would also suggest Wal-Mart, Target (you can find a lot of these items in the Target dollar rack), Big Lots, The Family Dollar, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, or anywhere that sells these items at inexpensive prices. You have many choices of items and stores.
That’s about this. All of this put together will result in an inexpensive girls’ gift basket that your girl will love going through as much as you loved putting it together!
