Winter Survival Kit Gift Baskets

"Winter Survival Kit"

This craft is super easy, takes only a few minutes, and costs only about $25 dollars to make!  I made one for each of my friends this Christmas, as well as one for my work party!  Perfect for the person who likes a little of everything!

This basket is full of things that anyone could need for a long winter ahead!  I made my baskets with virtually the same stuff, with a few variations. 

You'll Need:
1 Medium seasonal basket 
1 Throw Blanket
1 Pair of Cozy Socks
1 Mug (cocoa optional)
Lip Balm
Hand Sanitizer
A Game of some sort (I chose Uno, Scrabble Slam, and even a Hello Kitty Coloring book with crayons!)
You'll Also need a pair of scissors, colored construction paper, string, and a metallic permanent marker.

Here's what to do:
Cut the paper into square tags.  
Next, take your marker and write cute and clever things on the tags to describe the things in the basket. (i.e. "For when you're snowed in" for the games, and "To keep the winter bug away" on the sanitizer).
Then, attach the tags to each item and place them in the basket.  
Give them to someone you love!

Next time you're in a pinch and need a gift idea, just get them everything!

Merry Christmas to you and yours!
