Grab some pretty baskets that you can stuff full of only the best goodies! Kristy made these baskets for her kids’ teachers, and they are filled with seasonal specialties, yummy treats, and everyday essentials.

Because you can never have too many blankets! Grab a fun, festive throw blanket to tuck away in your basket and start the holiday theme.

These mini pillows and hanging decor penguins are so cute for the classroom or the office!

Who doesn’t love a heavenly smelling candle?! Share the scents of the season with a candle that looks as pretty as it smells.

This is a great idea, especially for teachers or nurses. Stuff in a few sweet-smelling hand sanitizers and help keep the winter germs away! Pro Tip: Wait until Bath and Body Works has its 5 for $5 sanitizer sale! It’s the perfect time to stock up on basket fillers.

Moisture is the name of the game during the cold, dry months, and these Burt’s Bees kits will definitely do the trick! A luxurious lip balm and hand/body cream will provide lasting hydration all season long.

How stinkin’ cute is this?? A mini waffle maker that imprints a Christmas tree on each waffle! This is a great gift for any foodie, or anyone who can’t get enough of Christmas!

Being warm and cozy, snuggled up with a cup of delicious hot cocoa, is the epitome of an ideal winter night. I’ll take two, please!!

Finish off with an assortment of snacks! These make great fillers for any empty spots left in your basket and let’s be honest, tasty treats always make great gifts!!

This is a fun idea for a new driver or a college student, or really anyone who likes being prepared with the essentials! Grab a bunch of car necessities (air fresheners, tire inflator, cleaning wipes, etc.) and stuff them into a trunk organizer and you have a practical gift for any driver!
