I love Gift Baskets. Even those pre-made ones you get during the Holidays are just so much fun to dig in to. I put together this gift basket as a special surprise Thank You for a girl friend of mine. Giving it a Glam theme by styling it around the feminine and whimsical designs of the KLEENEX® Betsey Styled Single Packs. The bright colors and eccentric designs are sure to brighten anyone's day. I know this first hand because my better half bought these for me before I even knew about them and I was like OMG! Betsey!

Keep Reading for How I created my Glam Gift Basket!

Betsey Johnson is synonymous with hot pink, animal print, roses, and feminity. She has been on of my favorite designers for years, inspiring me to embrace my own creative side. I started my DIY basket by first picking up some materials that would compliment the boxes. A pink basket, pink roses, pink filler, and leopard print ribbon.

Next, I purchased the KLEENEX® Betsey Styled Single Packs (74ct.). One to include in the box, and one for myself, you can see how I use it later!

The KLEENEX® Betsey Styled Single Packs (74ct.) and KLEENEX® Betsey Styled Wallet 3 Packs are available now at Kroger stores. I found mine at Fred Meyer in the personal care aisle. They were located on the top shelf, with such attention grabbing patterns you can't miss them! They are also available at a banner store like Dillons, Food 4 Less, Fry's Food, Harris-Teeter, King Soopers, Quality Food Centers, and Smith's & Ralphs.

Keeping with the Betsey Johnson theme I stopped by TJ's to find a few accessories. An edgy little makeup bag with skulls and roses. Can I keep this bag for myself? That print is so awesome! Aviator sunglasses with pink leopard print, a set of leopard drop earrings, and the signature perfume.
What girl doesn't love chocolate? Ghiradelli Sea Salt Soiree is deliciously amaaaazing as is my other favorite chocolates, Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette and Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer.

Another item I think every one enjoys getting in a basket is Spa products. I included pink exfoliating gloves, cherry-almond hand cream, cupcake bath bomb, Udderly Smooth body moisturizer, Evian Brumisateur Face Spray, and some sheek masks. Most luxurious of all are these Geluxury Leopard Print Spa Slippers. I own a pair of these and they are amazing. They have a gel like interior with infused oils that moisturize your feet while you wear them.

For hair and beauty I centered it around that bold electric shade of pink Betsey is known for. 

A baby kabuki, angled liner, & blending sponge. Be My Baby nail polish from Madam Glam, Essence mini lipgloss trio, Violent Lips Leopard Glitter Lip Tattoo's, and Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara. Finishing it off with the Rock Your Hair hairspray because that packaging is everything.

There we have it, my finished Betsey-fied Glam Gift Basket. Being able to style a basket around the KLEENEX® Betsey Styled Single Packs (74ct.) was a ton of fun! I think it has such a personal and over the top touch, I know she'll love it!

Even after the tissues are gone you can re-purpose them. The Kleenex® boxes make stylish DIY Makeup Brush holders. Just add in some plastic beads to the bottom of the box and you have inexpensive funky brush holders. Add a handle to the top and make the box the basket itself, or cut it up to make a decorative personalized card to include in your gift basket.
