Need a great gift idea for your mom, teacher, friend, spouse, (or really anyone!)? Here are five simple steps to putting together a perfect gift basket that anyone will be sure to love.

1. Start with a cute basket. I love finding baskets at TJMaxx, Marshalls, Target or Amazon.

2. Pick a few main items. Here are some of my favorites:

  • Cozy blanket
  • Flowers/Plant
  • Candle
  • Mug/Water Bottle
  • Small frame with photo, favorite quote, or bible verse

3. Add extra items to fill in. Some great ideas would be:

  • Book
  • Beanie hat/Stocking Hat
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Wine
  • Chocolate/favorite treat
  • Hand lotion
  • Bubble bath/body wash
  • Beauty products/samples (lip gloss, facemask)

4. (Optional) If you are doing a group gift or wedding gift and really want to make the gift basket special, throw in a few gift cards.

5. (Optional) Wrap the items in tissue or arrange neatly in the basket. Add a handwritten card. You’re done!
