Below you’ll find my Christmas slippers DIY gift basket ideas, plus tons of helpful tips to customize this gift to your recipient. 

1. Gift Card & Treat Filled Slippers Christmas Gift

Perfect Gift For: Anyone.  Really, who would love to get gift cards, lip balm, and candy?

Those are all pretty safe bets, even if you don’t know the person very well.

For the sugar hand scrub, I would say you would want to know the person’s scent preference or maybe go with hand lotion because some people don’t use scrubs.

Helpful Tidbit: I tied a dollar store ribbon around the slippers and attached an ornament on top. 

I like to get toppers and ribbon at the dollar store because it’s so cheap, that way I have more money to spend on the actual present.

Contents: 

  • Hershey’s Chocolate Candy Cane Bar
  • Target Gift Card
  • EOS Peppermint Lip Balm (It came in a two-pack.)
  • Sugar Hand Scrub
  • Socks

Need slipper recommendations?

I get asked a lot where you can purchase the slippers pictured. Originally I bought them at Target a couple of years ago and they don’t see them in stock anymore. 

To help you out I included some slipper recommendations below. At the end of this post, you’ll find even more recommendations for slippers and goodies to put in them.

2. Wine & Chocolate DIY Slipper Gift SePerfect Gift For Anyone who loves wine and chocolate (raises hand hehe).

Helpful Tidbit: Recipient doesn’t drink wine? You could put a small bottle of soda or other non-alcoholic drinks in the slippers as well.

Contents: 

  • Mini Bottle of Rosé Wine
  • Chocolate Bar

By the way, if your recipient loves rosé, I made an entire DIY rosé wine themed gift basket they’ll love.

3. Coffee, Candy & Lip Balm Women’s Slippers

Grey women's slippers filled with candy, lip balm and coffee wrapped in with a white box with gold design and a holiday snowflake topped tied to the ribbon on grey marble background

Perfect Gift For: Caffeine addicts who have a Keurig.  By the way, you could also stash some hot chocolate or tea K-Cups in there as well.

Helpful Tidbit: If you’re doing multiple slipper gifts, buy just one box of K-cups and divide them up.  This makes it pretty cost-efficient.

4. Relax & Get Comfy Slippers Gift Set Idea

Perfect Gift For: Anyone who wants to unwind around the house.  They can eat chocolate in their slippers by candlelight.

Sounds good to me…

Helpful Tidbit: For bigger items like the candle, you’re not going to want to stuff them all the way into the slippers because it might stretch them out. Have those items stick out a bit.

Contents: 

  • Decorative Box of Matches
  • Candle (I got mine at the dollar store.)
  • Sugar Hand Scrub
  • Chocolate

How To Gift These To Your Recepient

There are a few different ways you can present this slipper gift to your recipient.

  • If you don’t have to travel far with your gift and think all the little items will stay in place stuffed inside the slippers, you could give these just how I showed you in the images above.
  • Wrap them cellophane like you would a gift basket and tie some ribbon around the cellophane or add a decorative bow.
  • Stick them in a gift bag or box. If you use a gift bag just be sure to place them at the bottom of the bag and not vertical because the items might fall out.

    where can I find this slippers you have pictured?

    1. Hi Becky. So sorry for replying late, I overlooked your comment. I bought the slippers last year at Target. I don’t see them on their website anymore but maybe they are still selling them in the store. Take care!

  2. Hi,
    The slippers look great with all the gifts and how you adorned them. My question is, how do you present it to the receiver?

    1. Hi Kathi. Great question. You could wrap them in cellophane like you would a gift basket. Another option is to just get a large enough bag or box and put the treat-filled slippers in it.

  3. I love this idea, but how do you ensure you have the right size without having to ask?

    1. Hi Lola. I think you would have to ask. You could ask a relative or friend if they know the recipient’s shoe size or ask the recipient what their shoe size is because they might not necessarily think you are getting them slippers.
