Wait, a what? A burr basket? Yup! You read that right. But what the heck is a burr basket, why should I know, and how do I make one? You know those silly Gen Z’s are always coming up with a new ‘thing’ for gift giving. This year, it’s the burr basket, and this fun basket is a fabulous Christmas gift idea. And it’s super simple and affordable to put one together.
So what’s in it? Everything to keep you feeling warm and cozy on those chilly winter evenings, alone or with a loved one. Here are a few things you can put in a burr basket. Use your imagination! Have fun.
We all need, love, and want fuzzy socks, especially after a full day of snowshoeing or sledding. Don’t just buy one pair. Throw a few pairs in that burr basket, and she’ll love you forever.
We’re all guilty of losing our mittens all the time. Fluffy mittens are a fantastic addition to any burr basket. Make sure to drop in two or more pairs of fun colors too.
Hot chocolate mix
Who doesn’t love hot chocolate? Use your imagination to put this one together. You can use mason jars or tins and add the hot chocolate mix, marshmallows, nuts, and sprinkles; the sky is the limit, really!
No burr basket is complete without chapstick, and if you forgot to put one in yours, it’s not too late. Everyone loves chapstick: women, men, boys, and girls. I mean, who doesn’t want soft lips? Buy lots of these little buggers in lots of flavors too!
Mmmm, cozy slippers. There’s nothing like getting out of bed on a cold winter morning and slipping your chilly toes into a pair of cozy slippers. Yes, toss those puppies in that burr basket!!
Fun Christmas mug
You could drink your hot chocolate, tea, and coffee in a normal mug, but who wants to? There’s nothing like a super cute and fun Christmas mug to brighten anyone’s day and make your favorite hot beverage that much more satisfying to sip.
Scarf and hat set
It doesn’t matter if the gift receiver already has a scarf, mitt, and hat set; trust me, she needs another one. A girl can’t have too many scarf and hat sets. When one is cold and wet, you grab the other! Get her two sets!
One more thing a burr basket definitely should have is candles, scented candles are even better, but only if they smell like Christmas. Nobody hates candles. These are practically essential in every basket.
There’s absolutely nothing like curling up in your favorite blankie on the couch with a loved one or your dog by the fire, sipping some yummy hot chocolate, and watching your favorite Christmas movie. Amirite?
Put on your silly thinking cap when you go shopping for PJs for your loved one to toss in the burr basket. Remember, it’s all about fun and cozy. Throw in a pair of silly PJs, and she’ll think of you every time she wears them and laugh!
