This is such a fun summer time gift basket!

Warm weather and ice cream go hand in hand. That makes this gift basket a perfect present!
I’m going to tell you exactly where I bought all of the goodies for this basket so you can make it too.
The one thing I wouldn’t recommend putting in the basket is ice cream. Lol! Other than that, it has all of the fixin’s to make a tasty ice cream sundae.
I went to Joann’s to buy the basket, chevron ribbon and glue dots. If you don’t have a Joann’s by you any craft store should work. Glue dots are a must have (for me) for gift baskets.
They are easy to use and it keeps all of your goodies in place. They are also easy to peel off.
My favorite part of this gift basket is the ice cream bowls and spoons. It’s one of the things I bought from Amazon. I also bought the straws, napkins and crinkle paper from there. Here are the links to what I bought:Greenco Set of 6 Vibrant Colors Ice Cream Bowls and Spoons Striped Paper Straws – Pink White – 7.75 Inches – Pack of 100 – Outside the Box Papers Brand Amscan 600013.53 Big Party Pack Beverage Napkins 6.5″ x 6.5″ Kiwi Mighty Gadget (R) 1 LB Yellow Crinkle Cut Paper Shred Filler for Gift Wrapping & Basket Filling
Last up are the items I bought from the grocery store. This included the M&M’s, gummy bears, hot fudge, caramel, marshmallow cream, sprinkles and ice cream scoop.
To assemble the gift basket I added the yellow crinkle cut paper to the basket. Then I started adding all of the items.
I put some of the taller items in the back – the straws and napkins. I put the ice cream bowls and spoons in the front, because they’re super cute and I wanted them noticed first.
The middle of the gift basket is where I arranged everything else. This is where the glue dots come in handy. I use a glue dot for all of the goodies that are touching.
You can see in the picture I placed the ice cream scoop on the fudge and caramel. I used the glue dots to keep it in place.
I even used the glue dots to keep the spoons in the ice cream bowls.
The last step was to wrap my chevron ribbon around the basket. Of course I used glue dots to keep that stuck to the basket. 🙂
Overall, this is an easy gift basket and a crowd pleaser for sure!
