Do It Yourself Gift Basket Idea

Gift Basket Idea

I’ve got a great DIY gift basket idea that can be given as a birthday gift, wedding gift, or for that student headed off to college. Even though this basket was made specifically for a wedding gift, I think the bakers and cooks in your life would love to receive this gift basket! If you are giving it to a baker friend, swap out a few of the items to suit like swapping out some of the kitchen utensils for cupcake liners, piping bags and tips, or sprinkles.  And maybe the recipient of this basket will bake you some special treats or invite you over for some dessert! 🙂

Head to your favorite store (aka Target…my favorite store) or if you are on a budget, the dollar store has great kitchen items too. Once you’ve got all of your items find a basket or container to fit everything and get to filling up that basket! For a list of items I bought for this basket—checkout the list below.

Gift basket items:

  • Rolling pin
  • Half size baking sheet
  • Cooling rack
  • Spatula
  • Parchment paper
  • Cookie mix
  • Measuring cups (for dry and liquid ingredients)
  • Measuring spoons
  • Cookie cutters
  • Oven mitt
  • Dish towels
  • Bowl scrapper
  • assortment of other kitchen utensils (to fill basket)
