When I’m invited to someones home, whether it be for dinner or a party, I always try to show up with a little hostess gift. This 4th of July Gift Basket might be a bit larger than I typically do, but I couldn’t resist all the easy to find red/white/blue items.
After Christmas, 4th of July is my next favorite holiday to decorate for. I love everything about this holiday!
- Let’s start with the definition of 4th of July (Wikipedia), “Independence Day, also referred to as the Fourth of July or July Fourth, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.”
- I’m a sucker for anything red, white, & blue! And the American flag!
- We typically host a large BBQ with lots of family and friends.
- Our small town parade and FiReWoRkS!!
- This 4th of July Gift Basket!!
Knowing that I wanted to put a gift basket together for a special someone in my life, I headed to Target to see what I could find. Our town has what I refer to as a mini-Target and I often can’t find everything I’m hoping to find. I lucked out this day and found plenty of items for a great 4th of July Gift Basket, starting with the plastic tote.
I knew that I wanted this gift basket to be fun for both the kids and the adults. It only took a few minutes of browsing the aisles to find plenty to fill the basket. I topped it off with a bottle of wine and some flowers that I picked up at my grocery store. I already had the red crinkle filler and striped ribbon.
It literally took about 5 minutes to add everything to the “basket.” I love the way it turned out and can’t wait to drop it off!
I’m not sure what our plans are this year, but I’ve been chatting with a niece of mine (who lives very close) and we’re talking about a “progressive” 4th of July Party for family and friends. I’ll host the BBQ (and possibly a bounce house for the little ones), then we’ll head over her house for dessert and watching our local fireworks. She should have a great view from her back deck!
What plans do you have this year for 4th of July? Whatever you do, keep it safe and if you’re a guest at someone’s home, how about putting together your own little 4th of July Gift Basket full of fun goodies that their family might enjoy!!
