Most of us usually have a reason for giving children gifts. Birthdays, holidays, or just for fun. Have ever thought about creating a gift basket for them? It can be a lot of fun, as you can control what you put into it and how much you spend on it. There are quite a few places to help you find toys to add to these baskets.
I’m going to share a few tips of creating an inexpensive girls’ toy gift basket, such as what to buy and where to buy them (the list is not just limited to these stores, as these stores are just examples).
The Gift Baskets.
Of course to make a gift basket, you will need the basket. There are a few stores who sell baskets at reasonable prices. You can find baskets in different material, sizes, shapes, and colors. You can find them for good prices at The Dollar Tree, Wal-Mart, and possibly Five Below (everything is five dollars or less). Personally, I would go with The Dollar Tree and just spend a dollar on the basket. Especially if you decide to do more than one gift basket.
Tissue paper is optional for anyone, but preferred by some. You can get tissue paper of different colors or patterns to go with your basket or the theme of your basket, or just go with plain white. You can get packs of tissue paper really cheap from just about anywhere. I usually get atleast 6 to a pack for a dollar. This is good, because if you don’t need it all now, then you will have the rest for another time. Stores to find tissue paper include The Dollar Tree, Wal-Mart, Target, The Family Dollar, and Five Below.
Now we will get to the really fun part, buying the girls’ toys! You can actually find some really great toys at reasonable prices, maybe five or six dollars or less. I have see the following toys for reasonable prices: The Littlest Pet Shop, Babies In My Pocket, Kitties In My Pocket, Puppies In My Pocket, My Little Pony (usually just the pony with very few accessories), and Barbie (once again, usually just the pony with very few accessories). Depending on the age, you can also add in some jewelry and make-up, which can be found for various ages at various prices. Other items to consider include pillows, stuffed animals, hair scrunchies or hair bands, and if you’d like to include it, candy. The majority of these items can be used on girls of most ages, and if not, substitutes can be added (such as extra toys or stuffed animals). You can find most of these at Wal-Mart, Target, Five Below, Big Lots, Rite-Aid, Walgreens, and The Family Dollar.
Of course, there is also The Dollar Tree. You can find dolls, stuffed animals, dress up clothes, pretend jewelry, and more there. All for the extremely reasonable price of a dollar.
Other items to include, that can be found at any of the stores mentioned, are coloring books, story books, construction paper, crayons, colored pencils, socks with patterns on them, and a grow-a-towel, playing cards, arts and crafts, and stickers.
Once you put it all together, you will have an inexpensive gift basket of girls’ toys that is sure to bring on the smiles!
