For a friend’s wedding this month, I wanted to make a cute gift basket that they could use right away as a couple. I really had no idea what “theme” I was going to use until I saw this beautiful cold brew coffee kit at Cost Plus World Market. That’s where I got the idea that I would make it a coffee themed, cozy gift basket.

Everything I bought was either from Target or World Market, and very affordable. (Except the basket, that one was from Michael’s craft store!)
I struggled with finding an affordable large basket that I knew they could continue using. I saw this one at Michael’s Craft Store and thought it would be perfect. It was a little difficult to work with as it’s kind of floppy and not as structured as I would have wanted. But I still think it turned out perfect. The texture of the basket and the handles on each side is why I really love it.
Since this particular basket was pretty deep, I had to use some plain craft paper as a filler to prop the items up. Once I had the items all where I wanted them to be, I sprinkled in the crinkle paper. TIP: I never buy it! I just always keep it and reuse it whenever I find some. (think the filler in your beauty subscription boxes or whenever you receive a gift with this filler)
I knew I wanted a soft cozy blanket so I got one at Target-it is perfect because it already came wrapped with a ribbon ! (and had a cartwheel for that one! score!)
I originally had planned to put a french press in the basket too, but when I saw this beautiful vintage style coffee grinder, I thought that would be a fun touch instead! (I love how it can be used as a decoration in the kitchen while also being functional).
I picture the newlyweds baking these pumpkin scones together and then snuggling on the couch sipping coffee while the warm Fall scent of the candle fills the room.
