What should I put in the Character Gift Baskets?

I often get asked for some ideas on what to put in the Character Gift Baskets. 


While wine is a great gift, not everyone drinks it and not everyone wants to gift it.

So what are some alternatives? 


Well, these baskets are approximately 9" x 9", with each leg having an approximate 11.5" circumference. 

Here are some things that fit perfectly in the legs:

Wine/Champagne/Liquor
Sparkling Cider
One liter water
One liter Soda
32 oz Gatorade/Powerade
Large Coffee Creamer bottles
Torani Almond Roca Syrup
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Piroulines 
Pasta Sauce (can or jar)
Pringles (fits loosely) 
Large bags of Candy - 11oz+ (M & Ms, Hershey Kisses, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups...etc)
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Lily Sugar 'N Cream yarn balls
Skein of Yarn (Red Heart Super Saver style)
Ball of Yarn (Lion Brand Vanna's Choice style)
Pillar Candles
--------------------------------------------------------------------
These items can be rolled up and stuffed in the legs:
Pajama Pants
Socks
Underwear
Towels

Or make themed gift baskets:

And you can always do color themed baskets; all items in Red or all items in Blue. 

I also offer Character Shoe baskets, which can be used in the same manner (although they don't have handles), however, the opening is much wider, so it would fit bigger things like a small coffee can or a can of ribbon candies. 

I hope this post helps you! I will update it as I think of new things! 
You can always do a Google or Pinterest search for "Gift Basket Ideas" and don't forget to visit my Character Gift Basket bundle on Ravelry to see all the baskets I have so far!
