Breakfast Gift Basket

Hello!  We recently attended a wedding and needed a gift last minute.  Well, I decided to get creative.  We didn't know the couple very well as the bride is a coworker of P, but we still wanted to get something nice for them.  They also didn't give us any registry information so it's not like we could have just gone to Target or Macy's and pick something out.  Thus, the following was created.

A Breakfast Gift Basket! Most of these items came from the Dollar Tree or Wall mart and the total gift cost around $12 when finished!

Inside, we put some pancake mix, syrup, Folgers Breakfast Blend ground coffee, Earl Grey Tea and some Coffee Creamer (no refrigeration needed).  We also put in some cute Coffee Mugs!

To make it all fit in the basket, and not fall I added some wadded up paper to the bottom of the basket.  The things I needed to be taller I just added more paper under them.  Just keep adding till it al fits and looks nice!  To cover the paper underneath, just add a little bit of shredded tinsel or paper.

Poke that tinsel around in all the spaces to make it look professional.

These are Dollar Tree Mugs that I wrote on with a sharpie and then baked in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.  Pinterest says it works, so here's hoping! :)

I also shrink wrapped it, added some cute tulle tied around it and a fun gift tag.

The basket came from the Dollar Tree too!

Well, there you have it! I hope they liked it and can get some use out of it.
