How to Make a Trader Joe's Gift Basket

Seriously, wouldn't you love to receive a basket of Trader Joe's products, with a Trader Joe's cookbook nestled inside?  So would your friends and family!

Below are some of our favorite gift basket ideas.  Great any time of year.  Perfect for friends, family, co-workers, clients, or neighbors.

For easy assembly, first choose a basket of any size.  Stuff the bottom with raffia or crumpled newsprint paper.  Place taller items in the back, and shorter items in the front.  Cookbook goes in the middle.  Trader Joe's often has gift baskets and gift basket kids which make it convenient to assemble a gift basket or hostess gift - even on the way to a party!
