Gift Basket Filler Using Styrofoam Chips

A Base Filler for a Gift Basket


Gift basket filler. Styrofoam Chips are excellent things to use as a gift basket filler. Sometimes when you get parcels delivered with delicate items and they are surrounded with these white Styrofoam chips, keep them, as they make excellent fillers for your next homemade gift basket ideas. 

When it comes to filling a basket with gifts, you need something in the basket to make your gifts lie better. Have support. Then in-between the gifts you fill the space with some kind of shredded paper to cover up.

These fillers can work out very inexpensive to buy but most of the time you can find them in your own home.  So take a look around your home before you go buying things to make your gift basket.

But first, to make a gift basket look good like the store bought gift baskets, you have to line and fill your basket with some kind of shredded paper, Styrofoam chips or fabric. In this case we are going to use Styrofoam chips.

The ones below I saved from the parcel I got with fragile items. They didn't cost me anything. Fantastic! 



1 Idea for a Gift Basket Filler



If you are filling a bucket or a basket for Father's Day or any other occasion, use Styrofoam chips as a gift basket filler.

Fill the basket or bucket  to 1/2 or 3/4 full, depending on how tall your gifts are, and cover with tissue paper, shredded paper or some other decorative paper. 






Put a layer of shredded paper or sometimes known as gift basket grass on top and nestle your gifts in between the shredded paper.

Artificial ice cubes would be great for a beer gift basket or a wine and cheese gift basket.


There are lots of things you can use to make your homemade gift baskets more affordable to make at home and still look fabulous.  

Homemade Gift Baskets are perfect gifts for you to make and give any time of year. Making homemade gift baskets for your family and friends is so much fun. So give it a go!
