Upcycled Water Jug Gift Basket - finished and filled basketDon't have a gift basket? You can make one with an empty gallon jug and with items you may have around your home if you shop online!

I make friends, family, and co-workers gift baskets with items I coupon as gifts! I usually stock up on gift baskets at the end of Easter for 90% off, but I am completely out.
