One of the best gifts I have EVER received is my slow cooker! It have used it for MANY years and it has always helps my meal planning (and saved me money since I cook more at home). I think many can agree they’re a MUST for every kitchen.

A slow cooker can also make a great gift for many occasions including weddings, birthdays, Christmas, graduations, etc. Today I’m sharing how to gift a slow cookers in the cutest way! Try my easy and unique Crockpot gift basket ideas!

For Crockpot gift basket ideas, grab some small items that can be used with a slow cooker.

I enjoyed browsing stores like Target, Walmart, and TJ Maxx looking for goodies to put in my slow cooker gift basket. These items can be found at every price point (so check out Dollar Tree too as they have great kitchen finds). My favorite Crockpot gift basket ideas were soup mugs, Threshold kitchen towels, Magnolia Hearth & Home hand towels, and affordable kitchen utensils!

Slow Cooker Gift Basket Ideas




Remove the slow cooker lid and lay towels in the slow cooker, leaving the kitchen towels partially out for decoration.


Arrange each filler item inside the slow cooker to create a cute gift basket.


Lean the slow cooker lid on the back, wrap with cellophane to hold it in place.


You’ll need a few layers of clear cellophane to completely wrap.


Gather wrapping at the top and add a bow.

    This is such a great gift idea. My mother in law did this for us a few years ago and I loved it! On a side note, I want to say how wonderful crockpot’s customer service is. I was just on their website today looking for a replacement lid. My handle broke and I wasn’t exactly sure which to order. I used the chat and she said they didn’t have parts for that exact model so she would send a one time complementary replacement of a whole system similar in style. What?! Wow! I was ready to pay the $10 for a replacement lid but they went above and beyond! I can’t ask for more and will for sure make this the only brand to buy in the future when I need another! Just wanted to share my “hip” news! I know my fellow hipsters will be more excited than my husband was lol 😉

      I love when companies have great customer service; thanks for sharing! (Your husband sounds like mine- he doesn’t get excited about great deals!!)

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Wow! That is so awesome. Thanks for sharing a great customer service story. 👍

      That’s not my experience at all. I contacted Crock Pot because I wiped my stainless steel crockpot with a damp cloth and the the settings literally wiped off. It was so bizarre that I figured it was an issue they were aware of and had a solution for (I mean, if I had a Cricut, I could *make* vinyl decals!). As soon as they determined my Crock Pot was no longer under warranty, they wanted nothing to do with me.

      • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        Oh no. That’s frustrating. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    I do this idea every year for our family Christmas Ugly Sweater Gift Exchange Game. I always feel weird cutting the UPC off the bottom of the box for the mail in rebate to gift to someone else. This way I take the item out of the box and wrap it in a gift bag with other items and no one knows I spent less than $10 on the actually appliance! I do the griddle with pancake mix, spatula, and potholders etc. Always looks more expensive than I actually paid! So easy to throw together too!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Wow!! I agree. I love that idea for the griddle. How fun – thanks for sharing ❤️

    I love this!!! I make gift baskets for everyone at Christmas and this will be perfect for my little elderly neighbor who still loves to cook. And because she LOVES Aldi, I’ll tuck an Aldi gift card inside. Thanks so much for the terrific idea!! 💕

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh that is so sweet! I love that idea Adrienne. Thanks for sharing 🙌

  4. Heidy

    Wow this is great ideas for the holidays I can’t wait to make my own

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Perfect! Thanks Heidi!

  5. Julia

    Love this! Where do you get the cellophane from?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks so much! I bought some from amazon a couple years ago and it’s lasted me a long time! ha – You can pick it up near the gift wrap section in most stores however.

      Another suggestion is to wait until after Easter and buy up the rolls to wrap the Easter Baskets in…at a significant discount, of course!
