“Doing Laundry” Themed Gift Basket

by , under Baby Shower, Gifts Ideas

Here I will give you tips for putting together a Doing Laundry Themed Gift Basket for $30, and everything in it will be absolutely useful!

The Container:

You can go with a traditional bag or one of these containers, and that would be fine.  But the obvious container to put everything in is a laundry basket or hamper.

$7 at Target

These Badger Basket Folding Hampers are adorable, too!  But cost $22 each.

What to Put in the Basket

Mesh laundry bag

    • This is great to keep those little socks from getting lost in the dryer!

Especially For Baby Laundry Bag $4.60 at Babies R Us

Laundry detergent

You can get a bottle that washes up to 40 loads for $6 at Walmart

Fabric softener and Dryer Sheets

    • The same thing that applies for choosing detergent also applies.  Just get the “Free” kind.

Small bottles can be bought at Walmart for $3

$5 at Walmart

Stain remover pen

    • I know I just got done harping about Dreft and how you don’t need it.  But one way Dreft does come in handy is their pretreating pen.  I love the brush/scrubber tip on it. It makes scrubbing out stains much quicker and less messy than the Tide pens.  Those just fall apart. 

Great tip!
