The Holidays are in full swing and so are the parties! I don’t like to show up empty handed but I want to bring more than just a bottle of wine too. I love creating cute gift baskets and today I’m sharing my DIY Holiday Hostess Gift Basket with you. Throwing a party is no easy task and I like to show a little appreciate where I can.
DIY Holiday Hostess Gift Basket
First I like to start with what I want to put inside of it! My hostess likes wine and I wanted to gift them a relaxing wine night at home. I grabbed a wine I think they would enjoy at our local Total Wine and ordered a custom wine tote from my friend’s esty shop, CowsxCacti. They make the cutest personalized stuff for the holidays!
I saw the cutest wine glasses in the Target Dollar Spot section for $3! I bought a set for the gift basket and one for myself! (tip- if you get these too, only handwash them. I put them in the dishwasher and the writing came off) These ones say Jingle til you Tingle!
I love burning candles in my home. Every season I buy new ones. I love getting a couple extra as gifts. This fits in perfectly with my relaxing wine night at home.
I gather all the things I want to put in the basket and then I buy the basket. I’ve bought the basket first in the past and it hasn’t always been the right size. Sometimes I get one that’s too big and I need to add items to fill it up or I’ve gotten one entirely too small for what I want to put inside and then I’m left scrambling because I’ve waited til the last minute. Learn from my mistakes. Get your DIY Holiday Hostess Gift Basket all ready a couple days before the party so you aren’t stressed the last minute. I grabbed this basket from Hobby Lobby for 50% off and I love the buffalo check print.
Little Add Ons
When I ordered the wine tote I saw the cutest dish towels! I had to get one to match the tote. I hung it over the side of the basket. I sprinkled in my favorite holiday Hershey kisses to add something sweet.
Wrap it all up
I keep this roll of clear wrap around so I can put together a gift basket quickly. I added this cute curly ribbon and viola! My DIY Holiday Hostess Gift Basket is ready to be gifted!
I hope this inspires you to create your own thoughtful gift basket for the host of one your holiday parties.
