Pulling together a simple gift basket is a nice way to show someone how much you care. Gather up a few of their favorite items, throw in some things that you know they will love, and add a little personalization. The formula is easy and the creation is fun.

I’m showing you how to put together a cozy gift basket for under $10 that is customized for a very special person.

I’ve also gathered up a collection of gift ideas you can create using items from Dollar Tree and your Cricut.

I made this cozy gift basket for a winter birthday. I focused on 1 color theme and gathered items that would help the recipient relax and indulge a little.

This cozy winter gift basket includes

  • Red plastic bin
  • White ceramic soup mug
  • Jar candle
  • Gloves
  • Cozy socks
  • Tea
  • Chocolate
  • Cookies
  • Decorative filler

These items create a wonderful gift that a friend, co-worker or teacher would love. You could add a card or printable gift tag in addition to the vinyl to really make this a unique gift.

I chose to add a little personalization using my Cricut.

Personalize a gift with Cricut

Using a Cricut machine to but personalized designs with vinyl is a great way to add a little something extra to a Dollar Tree gift basket.

I’ve used vinyl to personalize Dollar Tree items like these Thanksgiving trivets and Christmas door hanger.

For this cozy basket I used scraps of white and black permanent vinyl to customize the candle, mug and basket in this gift.
