A Valentine's Day, or Galentine's Day, gift basket for friends

This reader created a festive “Galentine’s Day” gift basket for just $7!

Want to share the love this Valentine’s Day? Consider gifting your sweetheart, friends, or family a charming gift basket full of goodies.

This week’s Happy Friday reader, LC, created her own gift baskets to give the special ladies in her life. She was able to create cute and desirable gifts for around $7!

Here’s how LC did it!

“I made a few Gal-entines Baskets for the ladies in my life and I love the way they turned out.” 

Pink Valentine's Day Gift Basket Items

“I’ve been collecting cute, on-sale little things with my Valentine’s baskets in mind for a couple of months.”

“I tied white ribbon around pink Dollar Tree baskets to class them up a bit. Each basket cost around $7 to put together and I know my mom and sister will adore them!”

We love these baskets, LC! 😍

What a sweet idea! You did such a great job creating these Valentine’s Day baskets!

We love how you stocked up on highly-coveted items while they were on sale. We would NEVER guess these gifts cost just $7! 🙌

Thank you so much for writing in to show us how you put them together. You are so thoughtful and we know your mom and sister are going to love these special presents!

Hip Tip: We love how LC used similar colored items for her gift baskets. Many of the items LC used are shades of pink and we think this color scheme really ties the gift together!

You can create a thoughtful gift basket any time of the year by using a similar idea. Try creating this red-themed tumbler gift from Hip Reader LG or gather yellow items and gift a “Box of Sunshine.” You can even use our FREE Box of Sunshine Printable!

Thanks again, LC! 💛 

We really appreciate you taking the time to share your gift baskets with us! With Valentine’s Day coming up next week, your tip is a lifesaver for those of us scrambling to come up with a present.

Your story was also a helpful example of why to stock up on hot items when you spot them on sale. You were able to give a high-quality gift for a very low price!

We’re wishing you and the special ladies in your life a very happy “Galentine’s” Day! 💕
