The Merry-Mint Gift Basket

The clock is ticking down to Christmas day and if you’re in need of a quick gift for a co-worker, a neighbor, or someone you just have no idea what to get, here is a fresh gift idea: The Merry-Mint Gift Basket. Quick and easy to assemble, this basket is sure to win over anyone who receives it.


I found these great little cardboard gift baskets in the dollar bins at Target and I filled them to the brim with mint and sparkly items. Let’s take a look inside: a holiday box of Andes Candies, mini peppermint canes, EOS Sweet Mint lip balm, a cute silver necklace, and some trendy elastic hair bands. I made the necklace and hair bands, but you can find lots of simple chain necklaces at Forever 21 and put them in an organza bag for presentation. For the hairbands, I get elastic by the yard at the Sunshine Supply Shoppe or you can purchase them wherever accessories are sold. This is one cool gift that certainly won’t go unnoticed under the tree.


Happy Holidays and Happy Crafting!
