Are any of your friends or family members buying a new house this spring? Don’t know what to get them? This is the perfect opportunity to say “congrats” with a homemade gift basket full of household items that they absolutely need! These housewarming gift baskets are thoughtful and also budget-friendly. Read along to see how I assembled these three baskets myself, and comment on this post for a chance to win one of them for yourself!
You will need:
- Window cleaner
- Toilet bowl cleaner
- Laundry tote
- Cascade Action Packs
- Dish Soap
- Swiffer dust cloths
- Air freshener
- Latex gloves
- Swiffer sweeper refills
- Super Glue
- Duct tape
- Laundry sheets
- Furniture polish
- All-purpose spray cleaner
- Magic Erasers
- Garbage bags
- Shrink wrap bag
- Decorative bow
All of these items can be purchased at stores such as Walmart, Target, Shopko, Kmart, Dollar Tree and most grocery stores as well.
Step 1: Add items to your basket. In this case, I am using the laundry tote to hold all the items. Arrange them to your liking until the basket looks presentable.
Step 2: Put basket in shrink wrap bag and twist on the top. Use a hair dryer to seal the bag tight. The bag will form to the basket, and it only takes about 30 seconds!
Step 3: Attach bows and a congratulatory card to the front of the basket. That’s it!
This year, try something different than traditional baked goods for a housewarming gift. This gift shows thought and your friends and family will appreciate it, and they will get great use out of everything.
