One of my favorite things to give as a present is a gift basket. I take great pleasure in creating unique and personalized gift baskets for friends and family. It’s a great way to bring together your recipients favorite things, or things they need, in a pretty package that has a life span beyond the time it’s opened.
Gift baskets don’t need to be limited to Bridal or Baby Showers. Nor do they only need to be given filled with food or alcohol. Anyone can love a gift basket, even kids. In fact, kids go crazy for gift baskets because it seems like so much “more”. Even though a gift basket of several little things can actually cost LESS than a solitary gift.
The kind of gift basket you make is limited only by your imagination and your wallet! So, Mom’s, Dad’s, Aunts and Grandma’s…do you have a Princess on your list? If you do, make her “wish upon a star” come true with a magical Disney Princess movie gift basket.
To start, pick up the Disney Princess Storage Basket at Toy’s R Us. It’s a good deal at $9.99 and can be reused however your little Princess sees fit. Toy’s R Us also has an adorable Micro Plush Pillow and Blanket Set for $15.99. Add to the basket to keep your Princess cozy and warm on movie night.
Of course, not all Disney movies (Princess or otherwise) are available at all times. The Disney Store website has Beauty and the Beast, The Princess and the Frog and Princess Stories Volume 3 (A Direct to Video series starring a selection of favorite Princesses) on hand at from $14.99-$29.99. Target has a similar selection of DVD’s available online, as well as Snow White . I would choose Target over the Disney Store if you are ordering online, because they are offering Bull’s-eye Free Shipping with a $50 qualifying order. Add any (or all!) of these movie to your basket to create a movie library rivaling any real Princess!
After you choose the movies, don’t forget to add fun accessories. Target has Disney Princess themed Sleepwear in the $10-$12 range, some with at 20% off if you spend $75. (and don’t forget the free shipping)! Disney Store, Target and Toy’s R Us have tons of Princess themed accessories such as Jewelry, Tiaras, Makeup Kits, Dolls and Coloring Books. Choose items that correspond to your movie or that you know your Princess loves. If you are super creative and would rather hand make items, any craft store, such as Joann Fabric, has an entire section devoted to Disney
Present your gift open or use shrink wrap (so simple, just use a hairdryer) to dress it up. Add a nice ribbon (pink, of course) and even some stickers. Your Princess will be “happily ever after”!
