Hi! It’s Jilly! I’m super excited to be here today! Just a little introduction…I am the wife of a podiatry resident, and mom of seven year-old triplets. Yes, I said TRIPLETS! On my blog I like to write about TV characters that annoy me, home & craft projects, recipes, and anything else in my crazy life that tickles my fancy! I have been friends with the genius behind this blog since high school, which was longer ago than I’d like to admit! If you haven’t met her in person, just know that she is even more awesome in real life than she is on her blog. I am soooo happy she asked me to be a part of this great series!
Whenever one of my friends does something really nice for me – like letting my kids sleepover at their house while my husband & I go on a trip- I like to make them a themed ‘thank you’ gift basket. Once I made up a breakfast gift bag. I filled a reusable shopping bag with all the makings of a yummy breakfast- pancake mix, syrup, butter, bacon, eggs, and orange juice. The gift I am sharing with you today is a movie themed gift basket.
There are a TON of things you can put in a movie basket. A few ideas:
- Popcorn bowls or boxes
- Gift cards from Netflix, Redbox, or Fandango (---- follow those links to buy them online. Easy peasy!)
- Gift cards to their favorite take-out pizza place
- A movie board game or Wii game, like SceneIt! or Disney Trivia
- A DVD or Blu-Ray
- A blanket to wrap up in during the movie
- An air or stove-top popcorn popper
Then I topped it off with a gift tag that says, “Thanks! That was ‘reel’y nice of you!”
AND, I made a FREE PRINTABLE of the gift tag for you guys!! Just print it, cut it out, glue it on some colored paper or cardstock, and you’re good to go! Btw- I made it black-and-white for those of you who, like me, use their laser printer all the time ‘cause your ink-jet runs out of ink in a flash. Plus, it’s easier to make the b & w tag match whatever color scheme you’re working with. Go HERE to get your free printable. :) So, there you have it. A fun, easy & creative gift basket to thank the ones you love for being awesome. Thanks again for letting me guest post here today! It has been so fun putting this together! I’ve been enjoying the other posts so far, and am looking forward to seeing all the other great posts this month! To see more excitement from my house, follow me at Hi! It’s Jilly, on Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter. See you soon! :)
Thanks again Jillian! Go check out Hi! It's Jilly for more great ideas and lots of random practical tips! (you have to have those around when you've got triplets, or so I imagine...)
