What is a ‘jingle basket’? What are we supposed to put in them? Why are they so cute? Do they have to jingle? We have a lot of questions
You remember way back (last month) when we were talking about how extra ‘Boo Baskets’ were? And then we realized they were actually really adorable and taught you how to make them? Well, it’s happening again. Except not with Boo Baskets. According to TikTok user @emilyegomezz, ‘Jingle Baskets’ are happening. Of course, if TikTok says it’s happening, it is.
We don’t know if Em is actually the original Jingle Basket creator, but she’s got a really cute account, and she openly admits they’re exactly like Boo Baskets (except holiday-themed) so we’ll believe her. Plus, the way she builds her Jingle Basket is just darling and not completely outrageous. Sure, we know you already have a ton on your plate. We also know that it’s not necessary to basket all the things. But honestly, who wouldn’t want a big basket full of holiday cheer?
If there’s ever a season to go over-the-top, it’s the holidays. So we’re totally embracing the Jingle Basket trend and rocking these for our partners, teachers, bosses, and pretty much anyone we want to sprinkle with Sugarplum Fairy dust (or whatever they use. It’s probably dust.). Already totally overwhelmed with trying to come up with gift ideas? That’s why we’re here. Here’s how to make a Jingle Basket. Oh, and make sure to send this one to your loved ones because you absolutely deserve a basket brimming with seasonal goodies, by the way.
