I used to put together baskets like this as "Date Baskets" for Bridal Showers...it's not a NEW idea....but I liked her ideas...found on this blog.
She bought the popcorn bowls at Tai Pan Trading (in UT) and then filled them with supplies from the Dollar Store for a family movie night. She liked the idea of a gift that this gift let the family spend time together during such a busy time of year.
2 boxes of movie candy
Box of microwave popcorn
Old classic type movie (or you could do a Blockbuster Gift Card)cellophane
Tags with personal message
Newspaper to stuff the bottom of the bowl with so that the goodies stand out
Total cost: Approx $10 (can be done for considerably less with a different container)
