Last Minute Dollar Tree Gift Basket Ideas For Mom

When it comes to putting together a gift basket, it’s not a problem for me to wait until the last minute. I can run to Dollar Tree, gather things to make a fun gift basket, put it together, and deliver it to the recipient in less than an hour.

Being a procrastinator, I ran to Dollar Tree yesterday and bought a lot of cool things to make 3 gift baskets perfect for any woman in your life.

The first two baskets are for pampering mom, daughter, sister, co-worker, or friend!

The item you use for the basket can be anything. I like to make it a handy piece like the purple bowl I selected for the “late night time to relax” basket. This gift basket is all about having some “me time.”

Depending on the item, I may remove it from the package. I did that with the hair wrap just to use it as a soft base for all the goodies.

Now I layer things in the basket until it looks appealing.

Once I had the first basket put together and started taking photos……I was not happy. The hair wrap I first placed on the bottom and sides of the bowl ended up in the wine glass because I couldn’t see the writing very well in the photos. But the basket didn’t make me happy.

I went to my gift wrap tote and found this paper filler, which also came from Dollar Tree. I love that store.

Now the wine glass shines, and so does the whole gift basket. I’m happy now. Don’t be afraid to rearrange and rearrange until your gift basket makes you smile.

Nine items make up this gift basket for less than $13. The basket contains a wine glass, sparkling grape juice, two nail polish colors, night cream, Lindor Chocolates, and a smell-good reed diffuser.

The next gift basket is the “spa basket.” It contains a scrubbing sponge, massage gloves, lotions for hands and feet, body oil, socks, and slippers—eight items for less than $11.

The third gift basket is for the gardener.

I found a collection of flower seeds, a planter, a trowel, gloves, and more. As you can see, there are 8 items, meaning this basket costs less than $11, including tax.

I unwrapped the garden flag to use as the background for the basket.
