Hi ~ Would you be willing to share the children's authors or contact information? I haven't had any luck with any I tried. Thank you,

Basket Ideas:

Green and Recycled - this one can be very broad, just be creative with it

BBQ/Smoke Meat - always a big seller

Collage or National Sports - another big seller

Fiesta - pinatas, margarita glasses, etc...this one is always a hit but we're in Texas

Wild About Animals - ask local groomers, pet sitters, vets to donate and add toys and other animal items...if you have enough split it into two baskets (cats & dogs)

Sports - anything and everything

Party in a Box - everything you need to have a goods, certificate for a cake from a local baker, certificate for a party (bowling, movies, bouncy/jumpy place, putt putt)

These are just a few we've had repeated success with over the years. Post again if you would like more.

Are you getting items donated? Start looking at Goupon and LivingSocial...we've had success asking companies that are offering discounts for donations because they looking for new customers.

Any types: The ages of the kids are Pre-K to eighth grade. We also have baskets pertaining to households, babies, and adults. I just need some new fresh ideas.

Hi Kim! What kind of baskets are you trying to put together? And what ages are the kids?
