How To Create An Under $25 Gift Box For Everyone On Your List

Sometimes gift-giving stresses me out. Because let’s be honest, a good gift can leave a big—and lasting—impression on its recipient. That’s why knowing how to give a great gift is a skill that we can all stand to benefit from! Especially around the holidays. One of my favorite gifting hacks are the one, the only, gift baskets/gift boxes! Maybe it’s that little bit of OCD I have in me, but I love coming up with a theme and curating a little box of things I know someone will love. Today, I am on the blog with Tuesday Morning sharing how to create a beautiful gift box WITHOUT breaking the bank! Each of these boxes contain name-brand, high quality items at a fraction of the cost. To be specific, each basket cost under $25 for everything inside. Do you like great deals without sacrificing quality? You came to the right party. Click below to see!

Five Steps to the Perfect Gift Box:

Step One: Decide theme. Go to Tuesday Morning & find all the goodies to stuff it with!

Step Two: Get a box/basket/crate.

Step Three: Add kraft paper to bottom to support and lift items up & shredded paper to fill in/add texture (also available at Tuesday Morning!).

Step Four: Add items to box.

Step Five: Give gift and see your loved ones face light up with excitement!


More information on how I filled my box:

I went to Tuesday Morning & was able to fill the box with upscale items (OPI Nail Polish, Char-Broil products, Cuisinart, Harry & David) for a way lower pricetag! Other brands I also saw while shopping: Crock Pot, Hot Wheels, Mega Bloks, Yankee Candle, and so many more!

Now, let me share with y’all the three gift boxes I created to inspire you:

A spa box — Perfect for your friends, mother-in-law, grandma, teachers, co-workers, sister. I stuffed mine with a bath bomb, fuzzy socks, a peony-scented candle, nail polish, a collagen face mask, and hand cream!


A coffee-lover’s box — Great for grandparents, in-laws, teachers, friends, coworkers. I put a super cute galvanized coffee canister, Harry & David coffee, and a vintage Santa mug inside.


A grillmaster box — For your father-in-law, dad, husband, or guy friend! I included a grill brush, corn on the cob skewers, a burger press, burger seasoning, and a stainless steel cooking rack!


Other easy gift box ideas you can create all with stuff from Tuesday Morning: a chef’s box, a wine lover’s box, a techie box, a foodie box, a sweet lover’s box, a Hot Wheels box, a princess box… and so many more! Click here to find a Tuesday Morning near you!
