Have you ever made a color-themed gift? They are so much fun to put together! I thought I would have a harder time finding teal things to put in a gift basket, but there’s actually a ton of ideas out there (see some of my ideas for inspiration below and check out the full list I made on Amazon of teal gift ideas.)

The best thing about this Teal Gift Basket is that you can use it for special occasions, OR just because! It’s a great way to cheer someone up or put a smile on their face!

If you want to see some more of my color-themed gift ideas I also have a Pink Gift Basket, a Yellow Gift Basket, and a Blue Gift Basket too! They all have coordinating free printable tags too!

How do you make this DIY Teal Gift Basket?

Step 1: Gather your supplies.

You will need:

Step 2: Print out the Just Wanted To Teal You You’re Awesome gift tags.

Printable for the teal themed gift basket that says "Just wanted to teal you you're awesome".".

When you print out the tags, they will print four-to-a-page and will look like the picture above. Make multiple gifts using the tags, or have an extra on hand just in case.

Pro Tip: Print these tags on cardstock paper for the best results. If you print on regular paper, they will be flimsy and tear easily when attached to your gift.

Step 3: Gather your teal gift basket items.

After you’ve shopped for all your teal gift ideas, you’re ready to put your gift together in your container!

I rearranged mine a few times until I was happy with how they were presented. I try to do the taller items in the back of the basket, and the smaller items up front. Nestle your items down in the paper shred to make sure they fit snug and won’t move easily.

I use paper shred for my basket filler because I can usually get it at the dollar store or at Hobby Lobby. I found this pretty teal color on Amazon.

Step 4: Cut out and attach the tags.

The free printable tags are the perfect finishing touch to this Teal Gift Basket! You can grab them and print them for free HERE.

Use a sharp pair of scissors and cut them out. Punch a hole in the corner of the tag, and run a ribbon through it to attach it to your gift.

This is how my final gift ended up looking like when I was done! The smile this brought to their face when I gave it to my friend was awesome! The tag is JUST the right amount of cheesy to make them giggle!
