The holiday season is upon us and Big Lots has everything you need for those last minute gifts you forgot about, like your neighbor or a friend at work. Since there always seems to be someone I forget about, I pick up a few extra gifts that I could quickly wrap up in a gift basket.
Big Lots is my go-to store for all my Christmas gifting needs! They have everything from scarves and gloves, to blankets, to jewelry gift sets, to electronics and accessories. As I browsed through the store, I was overwhelmed by the wide variety of gifts, so I just tried to fill my cart with items I would like to receive. Big Lots also has a great selection of gift bags, baskets,wrapping paper, and bows so you can make your gifts pretty.
I was surprised by the large selection of scarves...regular, infinity, and blanket scarves. I grabbed a few, along with some gloves and fuzzy socks. These items are perfect gifts for my friends and sister.
I enjoy making gift baskets for my friends and family because you can customize them. Today I am showing you how to make a Cozy Themed basket that has everything you need to spend a snowy day, curled up on the couch, including a cocoa-filled snowman and Elf mug!
Cocoa mix (you can use store bought or homemade)
Empty creamer container (clean and dry)
Super glue (or a hot glue gun)
Piece of ribbon
Step 1: Fill the container with cocoa mix. It is important to do this first because it makes a little bit of a mess.
Step 2: Attach the googly eyes and buttons. I bought the adhesive eyes, so I just stuck them on and I used super glue to secure the buttons. Use the marker to draw the nose and mouth onto the container.
Step 3: Tie the ribbon around the neck of the container like a scarf.
Step 4: Assemble the basket. Add your cocoa-filled snowman, mug, a festive bag of marshmallows, cozy scarf and gloves, and fleece throw. Top it off with a festive bow!
