Turn Your Stockpile into Gift Baskets

The past three years I’ve tried to become creative with gift giving. To me, it’s not about getting the “wants” but, more so the necessities. My nephews are growing and are in need of clothing, shoes, socks, etc. and I typically try to give things of that nature verse toys that they’ll play with here and there.

So go through your pantry, closets and cabinets to create a DIY gift basket. Then head to the $1 store or $1 bins for those “extras”.

Some gift basket ideas:
