We all have a coffee-obsessed friend or family member that this would be perfect for. Personalize it with their favorite type of coffee and a cute mug that reminds you of them.

You could even customize it using your family’s favorite cookie recipe. (via TomKat Studio Blog)

5. Summer Gift Basket

I love when gift baskets are packaged up in a creative way that relates to the gift instead of being in a literal basket. So, I find this summer hostess gift so creative! She found an inexpensive glass pitcher at TJMaxx for $5 and wrapped it up with all the supplies to make lemonade. Genius! (via Fashion Meets Food)

6. Sangria Gift “Basket”

Similar to above, I love how this DIY Sangria gift “basket” packaged up in a cool glass beverage dispenser that can be used to serve it. It is colorful, fun, and a unique gift idea they are sure to love. (via Fantabulosity)

I always see tons of amazing DIY beauty projects on Pinterest for homemade face masks, bath salts, and DIY lip scrubs. This DIY spa gift basket is the perfect excuse to try out those projects you’ve pinned and create a thoughtful, trendy looking gift for a fraction of the price you would pay at the store. (via Almost Makes Perfect)

8. DIY Spa Gift Basket

My two favorite things on their take on the DIY Spa Gift Basket are: 1) the hexagon wood box (obsessed with it!) and 2) the adorable FREE printable spa cards that are included. It makes it look so luxe and professionally put together but for a DIY price. (via The Beauty Dojo)

9. Sunshine DIY Gift Basket

If you need ideas for “just because” or DIY thank you gift baskets, this is perfect. Pick a color and do a color-themed gift basket with fun treats. I love this yellow-themed “Box of Sunshine” gift basket idea, which will certainly brighten up someone’s day. (via Fantabulosity)

Welcoming a new baby into the family is one of the biggest events of a person’s life, so putting together a sweet new baby gift basket will mean the world to them.

16. New Mama DIY Gift Basket

Caring for anew baby non-stop can be exhausting, so it is a great idea to give your new mom friend a gift basket with treats to remind her to find a bit of “me” time when she can. With all of the focus being on the baby, it can be so nice to give something specifically for her to let her know you’re thinking about her. You can also include your favorite products that helped you through this amazing but exhausting time. (via Mommy Like Whoa)

17. Bridal Shower Gift “Basket”

You want to give the bride something practical at her bridal shower, but there can be something a little less special about a generic box with a crockpot or kitchen appliance in it. Instead, make it much more special and memorable by turning that appliance into a gift basket! This is brilliant! Add some kitchen linens, utensils, a cookbook and create a unique gift everyone will be talking about. You could also do the same thing with a Kitchen Aid mixer or a set of mixing bowls. (via The Glitter Guide)

This unique bridal shower DIY gift basket is a “perfect pairs” theme. Inside, they added a bunch of items that are commonly paired together like a knife and cutting board, salt & pepper shakers, chip & dip bowls, or gloves.

20. 16th Birthday New Driver Gift Basket

A new driver themed DIY gift basket is the perfect idea for a 16th birthday! I got a gift basket similar to this from one of my good friends for my 16th birthday. I thought it was so clever and, obviously, memorable. You can stock it with all the supplies to wash their car or put together a car emergency kit. For mine, she put it in a plastic bucket and drew on it with paint pens to personalize it – such a cute idea they will always remember! (via Shirley Pando)

21. DIY Back to School Gift Basket

DIY gift baskets are the perfect idea for Mother’s Day. They show that you put thought and time into doing something special for them. Mom’s love DIY gifts! Put together some DIY or store bought beauty products like a sugar scrub or bath salts, a bottle of wine and some freshly cut flowers. Don’t feel limited to these ideas though and personalize with some of your Mom’s favorites. I also made note of her awesome tip to use dried moss as the filler for DIY gift baskets. (via Julie Blanner)

It may be stereotypical, but almost always true – dads love to grill! So, put together some fun new grilling accessories for a themed Father’s Day gift basket this year.
