I wanted to put together a gift basket for a co-worker and his wife who are expecting. I decided to put my coupon experience to work. I thought about all of the things we use or used for our little ones and made a list of things that would come in handy. I waited for each of the items to be on sale and paired the sales with coupons.
I bought a basket at Michael’s when I had a 40% off one item coupon. I’m not a big fan of making a gift basket with cellophane, so I thought I’d try something new, tulle. It is light weight, it comes in a variety of colors, you can see through it, and it’s affordable.
To assemble the basket, I lined the basket with the tulle. I then placed two receiving blankets in to cover the bottom and sides. Then I arranged each of the items in the basket.
