Make an adorable DIY Blue Gift Basket for a special person in your life to surprise them out of the blue! The free printable tags add the perfect finishing touch too!
Surprising people with unexpected gifts is one of my favorite things! It doesn’t have to be something big, but a little thoughtful gift can make people feel so special and can turn their whole day around.
Color-themed gifts are one of my favorite kinds of gifts to put together. They’re so much fun to shop for, they work for all ages and budget sizes, and they’re great for special events, or just because!

How do you make this DIY Blue Gift Basket?
Step 1: Gather your supplies.
You will need:
- Free Printable Blue Gift Basket Tags
- Blue Gift Basket Items (click the link to see an Amazon list full of a bunch of awesome blue gift basket ideas)
- Blue Container
- Blue Paper Shred
- Blue Ribbon
- Hole Punch
Step 2: Print out the Something Out Of The Blue gift tags.
When you print out the tags, they will look like this. They print four-to-a-page so you can make multiple gifts for multiple people, or you can have an extra couple of tags just in case you make a mistake.
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 all blue gift basket items.
There’s a TON of blue things you can buy for a themed gift basket like this! This is probably the easiest color-themed basket to shop for since there are so many branded things in blue.
Tailor the items you’re buying for your all blue gift basket for the person you’re giving it to. This is a great gift to give to any gender too, and you could easily make this blue gift basket for your boyfriend, or husband, or brother, or son!
Set your budget, and then buy items that fit within that to fill your basket with. A creative blue themed gift basket will hold a variety of items, so browse the list below for ideas, or see my big list of blue items on Amazon here!

Best places to shop for blue items:
Each basket will be different, so rearrange the items until you like the way they’re presented. A good rule of thumb is to put the tallest items in the back, and the smaller shorter ones up front.
Paper shred makes a great basket filler because you can kind of press items down in the paper to keep them from moving around too much.
Step 4: Cut out and attach the tags.
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 basket.
