Thoughts for Thursday: DIY Champagne Gift Basket and More!

I am so excited for today's post! It's that time of year when you may be scrambling for the perfect gift idea and want to give something fun and unique. I've teamed up with some wonderful bloggers to bring you DIY gift basket ideas! When Sara first reached out to us to do this, I jumped on the chance and decided to feature my favorite gift this time of year: Champagne! Who wouldn't love a basket dedicated to all things bubbly!

Head to the bottom of the post to see the rest! 

I really wanted to make this an easy, inexpensive basket so I didn't go crazy ordering stuff online. Everything you see below I purchased from Homegoods, Target, and my friendly local liquor store (because they still don't sell wine in grocery stores here in Maryland wahhh).

My inspiration for the basket started with the Cocktail Party book which I found at Homegoods but you can always pick up at Amazon, it's about the same price at both places.  As a former event planner I loved this book after flipping through just a couple pages.  It's a great how-to book for party throwing and broken down into chapters by holidays, game day, surprise party and so on.  The theme for each event being eat, drink, play, and recover with Mary offering great menu selections and fun ideas.

The adorable champagne flutes, cocktail napkins, snowflake drink charms, and Sip Sip Hooray sign all came from Homegoods too.

The gold glitter coasters are from the dollar spot at Target as well as the adorable polka dot straws and I also found the Capabunga there.  I just discovered this product and I'm so glad I did.  I love drinking champagne or prosecco but I hate that it can go flat if you don't drink it all in one day, here is where the Capabunga comes in handy! It will re-seal your champagne keeping all the bubbles in so you can drink it again the next day.   I can't find it on Target's site but the ever handy Amazon has it of course!

I anchored the basket with my favorite Korbel Brut Champagne and Brut Rose but you can use your favorite champagne or prosecco!  I haven't put a gift basket together in a long time and I forgot how fun it could be, this might be my new go-to gift for friends and family!

Have you ever made a DIY gift basket?  Do you think it's something your friends and family would enjoy?
