Last Minute Gift Basket Ideas for Under $20
For the movie lover
Who doesn’t love staying in on a cold winter’s night snuggled up with a blanket and a good movie? Fill a large popcorn bowl with a favorite movie (or a gift card to Redbox), movie theater candy, and popcorn. For the popcorn, just pop some microwaveable popcorn and put it in some cute bags. Tuck in a light throw and some cozy socks, too.
For the car fanatic
Use a bucket as the basket for this gift basket idea. Grab a car washing kit, take the contents out and place them in the bucket neatly. Add some microfiber gloves or cloths and an air freshener. The perfect gift for guys and the teens who just got a new car.
For the baker
This basket is perfect for those who love to bake. Fill a batter bowl with baker’s goodies, such as measuring spoons, silicone whisks, cookie cutters, and cookie mix. You could also add an apron and oven mitts. The best part is that you can get most of these items from Dollar Tree.
For the chef
For the teen girl
Fill a cute basket or large jar with travel size body wash, lotion, face masks, scented soaps, and a scented LED candle. Another option is nail polish and polish remover with a nail file, nail clippers, and pumice stone. If she’s a book lover, consider a novel with a calming candle and a soft throw in a cute basket.
For the teen boy
Teen boys love to eat so what’s better than food to fill up a basket? Think candy, sweets, chips, popcorn, and juice boxes. If he’s into sports: a sports magazine, a small sports ball, athletic socks, and sports cards.
For the ice cream lover
Instead of a traditional basket, a large jar with lid works perfectly for holding ice cream supplies. Fill it up with ice cream cones, hot fudge and caramel sauce, sprinkles, chopped walnuts, and an ice cream scoop.
For the wine enthusiast
For the coffee fan
A wooden crate would look so cute in place of the basket in this case. Add some cute coffee mugs, ground coffee or beans, to-go coffee cups with cup cozies, sugar and creamer packs, and stir sticks. Consider adding a personal touch with some handmade candies or cookies.
For the hot chocolate addict
Fill a basket with everything the hot chocolate addict needs! Add packs of hot chocolate, a small bag of mini marshmallows, candy canes, homemade cookies, and some chocolate candies. Don’t forget the cute mug!
