Earlier this month I worked with Gordman’s to pull together an easy and affordable (under $100!) holiday mantle for my home – you can see that full post here! And today I am partnering with them to get some people checked off my holiday shopping list with fun and affordable gift baskets!  If you’ve never checked out a Gordman’s near you… put it on your holiday to-do list! I recently stopped by our local Gordman’s store (it’s in Grandville for all you local ladies and it’s HUGE!) and loved putting a “done” check mark next to a few people on my holiday shopping list for this year.   There’s no “hunting” for deals at this off-price retailer. The good deals find you… or at least they found me!

Gordman’s challenged me to pull together a few gift baskets for special people on my list this year… so I got right down to work.  I decided to pull together a few gift baskets for our sitters.  As a mom you know how life (and sanity!) saving a good sitter can be. I try to think of generous ways to spoil them since they do so much for our family all year long. They had tons of cute and affordable baskets to choose from. I loved these wire baskets (only $13!) so I snagged two and started filling them.  Read on for the details on each basket…

Basket #1
For the first basket I did a GIRLY GIRL theme. For this basket I started with a super cozy scarf (only $9.99!), and added a cute ‘love” plaque (only $3.49) and a journal ($4.99) and then finished it off with a festive ornament (only $2.99).  The entire basket was under $35 – which is a great price point for a teacher, sitter or friend.

Basket #2

For the second basket I did a COZY winter theme. I first snagged another bright red blanket (I got one for myself too, shown here!) for only $7.99 and added a cozy pom pom hat (only $9.99), a Christmas candle ($6.99) and some of my favorite candies (only $2.99) and also another pinecone ornament – I’m in love with how simple and pretty they are.  This basket totals just under $40 – so again, a super price point for maybe a teacher, the superwoman that cleans the house for you, a sitter or a friend.

How cute are these!?!? I think any recipient would love a thoughtfully pulled together gift basket from Gordman’s this season, so be sure to stop by their store to get a few people checked off your list!
