In honor of National Ice Cream Month, here’s a fun gift basket idea that’s perfect for just about anyone! I put this together as a hospitality gift for my day job, but it would be great as a gift for a housewarming, a birthday or even a wedding. Who doesn’t love ice cream?!
Here’s what I put in the basket (which I purchased at TJ Maxx for $6!):
- Walmart Gift Card – with a note indicating it was for the purchase of their favorite ice cream
- Sugar Cones
- Small Ice Cream Cups
- Heavy Duty Plastic Spoons
- Ice Cream Scoop
- Reese Minis
- Mini Oreos
- Maraschino Cherries
- Mini Marshmellows
- Chocolate Syrup
- Caramel Syrup
- Gummy Bears
- Chopped Peanuts
I am seriously craving ice cream after typing that list! 🙂 Most of my items came from the Dollar Tree or Dollar General. Including a $10 gift card, I was able to put this together for around $35.
Some of my packaging came from items I had on hand. I picked up a few things at Dollar Tree to help with the presentation – color coordinating cups, napkins, treat bags and boxes – along with some shredded cardboard and a large, clear gift bag to pull it all together.
Watch me assemble the basket in this video – it was a lot of fun to put together!
You can download a generic version of my “Just Add Ice Cream” printable here. I created it in PicMonkey and love the whimsical touch it gives to the gift!
Who’s ready for ice cream?! 🙂
