Burrr! Do you know someone who is always cold?

Bring in some warm and cozy vibes with this adorable gift basket idea! Consider shopping for items like blankets, socks, candles, and coffee mugs, then gifting them together all in a pretty basket! I love that this idea can be curated to each individual and done on a small or large budget.

The first step to compiling a Burr basket is to secure a basket or container large enough to fit all your finds. See if you can repurpose something at home or thrift stores are great places to score cheap baskets to make gifts.

If you need a basket recommendation I love this one and the recipient will be able to utilize it in their home as a stylish way to store blankets, pillows, dog toys, stuffed animals, and more.

Now it’s time to compile your cold-weather gift basket!

There is no wrong or right way to compile this gift, but consider placing the blanket and pillow inside first and then layer the remaining items on top. This will help create an aesthetic appearance as the smaller items will be towards the front. You can finish the basket with a bow if you’d like… and that’s it. Easy peasy!

It’s worth noting that a Burr basket is not just a holiday gift!

Consider utilizing this fun idea to create one for a birthday gift, a housewarming gift, or maybe even a get-well-soon gift. You can completely customize all the little gifts inside and really make someone’s day! My mom sent me something similar to this when I was in college once, and I just thought it was incredibly thoughtful.
