How to Make a Cheap Tower Gift Basket for Christmas
Create a gift tower inexpensively. (stacked gift boxes and bows image by leafy from

People appreciate receiving gift baskets because they are filled with many different items. A tower gift basket is even more impressive due to its height. Unfortunately, it can cost a lot of money to create a tower gift basket because you must fill each box with a gift. Even if you have a tower of just three boxes, that quickly adds up. By shopping at discount stores, though, you can create a tower for someone without breaking the bank.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  1. 1

    Buy boxes for the tower at the dollar store or purchase them online if you can buy in bulk. Plain white boxes are often less expensive than coloured ones; wrap them later if you want a fancier look. Alternatively, reuse boxes that you have or use other types of containers, such as sand pails or laundry baskets.

  2. 2

    Use small boxes to create a mini-tower. Unless you have several large items that you plan on giving, stick with boxes on the small side. It's easier to fill them up without spending a lot of money.

  3. 3

    Create a theme for the basket. This helps you to stay focused when purchasing or making items to go inside. For example, make a bread gift tower that includes fresh baked loaves of bread in the largest box and homemade preserves in the smaller boxes. (Baked goods are an inexpensive gift. Fill up a box for just a few dollars.)

  4. 4

    Wrap all of the boxes in the same paper or alternate between two or three wrappings. Use a large piece of tape to hold each box together and then wrap a ribbon around the whole thing.
