Adorable Birthday Gift Basket for a Little Boy

With Easter over, I'm back to making gift baskets for different silent auctions. I got the idea for this basket when I picked up the cute sailor bucket at a going out of business sale. I filled it with a few things little boys love. A number of the items were clearance steals that I scored throughout the year. The Cool Gear kid cup was a Target 90% summer sale item (yes, 90% off). Instead of around $5 it was about $.50. I bought more than one. I found the Lego DVD at Dollar Tree, along with the Crazy Eight card game which usually sells at Walmart for about $3.99, the Silly Putty and the Hot Wheels car.

When I purchase items for baskets, I don't always know what I'm going to do with them. I still snag them on the cheap, put them in my office closet, and eventually the inspiration comes to me. I hope you find inspiration in this cute basket, and during your next shopping trip.

Items in the basket are:

Lego: The Adventures of Clutch Powers DVD
Crazy 8s - I like this company's card games because the cards are big and sturdy.
Cool Gear Kid Cup
Silly Putty
Hot Wheels Car

This looks like a great basket for a little boy. I know my 5 year old would love it! I too pick up things when I see them on sale. I actually keep a list on my computer so I know what I have in stock. Oh, and I'm jealous of your cup deal ;) Stopping by from the Country Fair Blog Party!
