Gift Baskets are a fun way to put together small gifts for family and friends based on their personalities. They are great for couples to, like this His & Hers Gift Basket Idea!

His and Hers Gift Basket Idea with Free Printable Gift Tags #cbias #easygifts #shop

I love gift baskets. I love taking the time to come up with creative ideas and inexpensive fillers to make up a beautiful basket that fits the personality of the recipient. Gift baskets for individuals are easy, but coming up with a creative idea for a couple can be a little trickier. So for this basket, I spent some time wandering around my favorite store (Target, of course) until I came up with a brilliant plan – a movie night gift basket! But not just your typical popcorn and boxed candy, this needed to satisfy her AND him – so I added some yummy beef jerky and a movie for each!


The idea here is to come up with gift baskets of like items that both members of the couple can enjoy! I put together this gift basket idea with my friend and her hubby in mind, but you can make it work for just about anyone. Here’s a look at some of the supplies I picked up:


Can we just pause for a second and talk about Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate? It’s my favorite. Kind of like how smiling is Buddy the Elf’s favorite. When it comes to prepackaged hot chocolate, this one is the bomb and it’s the only kind I will buy. And you have to use milk, not water. So, so good.

Ok, back to the gift basket ideas.

Supplies needed to make this gift basket:

  • Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa
  • Orville Redenbacher’s Microwave Popcorn
  • Slim Jim Meat Sticks
  • Sharable movie size box candy
  • Sappy Chick Flick for Her
  • Goofy Comedy or Action Movie for Him

I am well aware that there is some gender bias in this particular basket, but like I said, I had a couple in mind when I put it together. Since I am now updating this post from 2013, DVDs are of course not much of a thing anymore! Pick up some Blu-Ray discs or some iTunes or Netflix gift cards instead.

Buy a cute basket, or use one you already have to save a little money. Add some shredded paper as filler at the bottom of the basket, and place your items inside, larger things in the back. Add a couple of plastic ornaments and a cute tag (download these printable ones below), and you have a fabulous, colorful gift basket that satisfies them both!
