Gift Idea: Basket Full of Sunshine {diy}

Basket Full of Sunshine- peachesandprayers.comMy best friend, ex-roommate and maid of honors took her GRE (and passed on the first try y’all!) and graduated from college recently. As a fun, affordable gift to encourage her and show her I was thinking of her, I put together a “basket full of sunshine”. I had a lot of fun going around Walmart and Dollar General, finding fun foods and trinkets that fit in with the yellow and orange color scheme. The goal was to give her a basket full of things she would love, foods she could eat while studying and stuff I knew she could use. And hey… it looked cute too!Basket Full of Sunshine-

This type of gift basket is perfect for anyone, whether they are sick, about to enter finals week or if you just want to encourage them. I personally love giving gifts, and this one is perfect because of the versatility it offers. And you can even go a step further and do baskets with other themes, like a basket full of chocolate (yes PLEASE!), a basket full of Christmas, a basket full of flowers, and the list can go on… I’ll share others as I make them! Basket Full of Sunshine-

This basket had:

  • Vitamin Water
  • Lindor truffles
  • Christmas ornaments
  • Candle
  • Energy drink mix
  • Skinny Cow chocolates
  • Loofah
  • Fingernail polish
  • Big Sucker
  • Juicy Fruit
  • Lots of sunflowers!
