Many, many moons ago, I began giving each of my boys a Love Bucket filled with everything they loved. Even though they are all in their 20’s now and young men living on their own, the tradition continues. And someday, I hope they will continue the tradition with their own children.
A lot like the New Year’s Eve Countdown Bags, it’s one of those memories that we all treasure.

Gift Basket Supplies
- Basket or Container – it’s best to choose one without handles, it makes it easier to fill and wrap. This one is available in a few colors.
- Decorative Washi Tape or Ribbon – this is optional but adds a little color and fun to the basket
- Paper Filler
- Tulle or other ribbon to wrap the basket
Now you can choose whatever you like to fill the basket. Here is what I used –
- Chunky Cupcake with yarn – it also has a pattern for a hat included, then use the pom pom for the hat
- Knitting Needles
- Valentine’s Day Craft Kits – Michaels has a variety of the kits and they are only $1 – $3. The Critters Pom Pom Kit is a favorite.
- Candy – optional, but always good
To decorate the basket, add the Washi Tape to each side. I found it easiest to do the short sides of the basket first.
Use an X-acto knife for a sharp cut on the edges.
After the basket is decorated, then add a couple handfuls of paper filler. Then begin by adding the largest item, then the medium size items and finish with the smallest items.
You may need to add a little more paper filler in after you have the items added.
To wrap the basket, measure out several lengths of tulle, lay it on the table or counter, then set the basket on top. Bring the ends together and tie a bow or knot.
