DIY Gift Basket for the Dog Lovers in Your Life

I had the pleasure of creating and donating this great basket for a local organization that rescues dogs. They are putting together a fundraiser and asked me if I wanted to donate some of the products that I sell in my Etsy store. I jumped at the chance; clearly I am obsessed with my two pups and I would love to help other dogs find their forever homes.

I went to HomeGoods (c’mon – you know me by now) and found this great basket to kick-off this DIY project. Once you find the perfect basket, the rest of the project will fall into place.

I was a girl on a mission; I wanted to create a basket with a bunch of goodies for dog lovers. I found this great sign, which I thought was a sign considering who the basket was for. Anywho, I continued on my search and found two great coffee mugs, both which had a cute dog quote on it. The fate of this raffle basket was sealed. A coffee basket it is! I found two bags of coffee and some K-Cups and I was off to pay the man.

At home, I made the newest ornament in my collection, the Dog Lover Ornament, which is the perfect addition to any Christmas tree. This is for real dog lovers; I include heartwarming quotes about dogs and life and it really pulls at your heartstrings.


I also had my “paws” on some paw print elastics and created a couple of cards with the name of the organization and some great dog quotes. A girl can never have enough hair ties.

I lined the basket with cardboard and added some natural color filler that I found at the Dollar Tree. I wrapped the basket in clear wrapping, added a tag and gave it to the organization. They raffled it off today at their fundraiser.

This is a great gift idea for those dog lovers in your life! Check out my Etsy shop for more great gift ideas!
