DIY Popcorn Gift Basket with Printable Popcorn Labels & a Christmas Gift Tag. These make popcorn seasoning mixes and handmade mason jar gift ideas for neighbors, teachers, friends, family and more.
DIY Popcorn Gift Basket
Remember the gift ideas from just a few years back. Candles. Mugs. I was a teacher during this season and ended up with many of both. Oh hand lotion too! I loved all the gifts I was given from my students, I have not gotten rid of any of them BUT with the evolution of Pinterest, gift ideas have stepped up. It doesn’t mean more money has to be spent. In fact, Pinterest allows us to save in a lot of ways. For example, free printables (you know we love those on Frugal Coupon Living!)
We love this DIY Popcorn Gift Basket for stepping up your Christmas gift giving. Pairing pantry supplies like popcorn kernels, canola oils, spices, seasonings and more, it’s a creative idea that can be used for friends, family, teachers, coaches and even neighbors.
Neighbor Gift Ideas for Christmas
Looking for Christmas Gift Ideas for your Neighbors? We have plenty of gift ideas for your closest friends (by proximity!) These creative gift ideas require a gift tag and then you are done. Easy-peasy. You’re welcome.
This popcorn gift basket idea, will be a perfect idea for your neighbors. Maybe they will even invite you over for one of their movie or game nights.
DIY Popcorn Gift Basket Supplies
This basket can be as frugal-friendly as you like or you can add more fixings to “jazz” up your basket.
A few popcorn gift basket supplies include:
- Gift basket
- Basket filler (we used red crinkle paper filler)
- Small, medium, and/or large mason jars.
- Seasoning shakers (you can get seasoning shaker tops for mason jars)
- Popcorn kernels
- Canola oil
- Popcorn seasonings
- Printable gift tag and popcorn labels (see below)
- Hot glue gun and glue (or sticker paper)
- Ribbon or twine (we used red and white bakers twine)
Extra budget? Some people do not have kernel popcorn makers. If that is the case, anyone can pop popcorn in a brown lunch bag. Add a brown bag to your basket with directions. We really suggest this Popco Silicone Microwave Popcorn Maker. it turns into a collapsible bowl and is BPA free and dishwasher safe. It also comes in 10 colors!
Additionally, consider adding a gift card. A movie theater gift card is always appreciated.
Popcorn Basket Directions
Supplying you with the basic directions.
First, fill basket with filler. (We used red crinkle paper filler.)
Pour popcorn kernels in medium mason jar and canola oil in the small mason jar. Place both inside basket.
Add popcorn seasonings to seasoning shakers.
Print printable gift tag and jar labels on card stock or sticker paper. Cut out jar labels that match the popcorn seasoning flavors in each shaker and attach with hot glue. Place seasoning shakers in basket.
Add any other popcorn accessories to your basket – brown bags, popcorn makers, bowls, etc.
Lastly, cut out gift tag around outer edge and punch a hole in the corner. Attach the gift tag to the basket with a piece of ribbon or baker’s twine. (We used red and white bakers twine.)
Popcorn Seasoning Mixes
We have a few ideas for popcorn seasoning mixes and how to make them. However, we used Kernel Season’s Popcorn Seasoning Variety Pack for our gift basket (I am all about making easy Christmas gift ideas!) Just pour the inside of the package into a cute mason jar shaker!
Ranch: one packet ranch seasoning mix.
Sour Cream & Onion: 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, 3 teaspoons dried dill, 5 tablespoons onion powder, 3 teaspoon garlic powder, – 1/2 teaspoon each sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
Dill Pickle: 3 tablespoons coriander seed, 3 tablespoons kosher salt, 5 teaspoons dill weed, 1-1/2 teaspoon mustard seed, 1-1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1-1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1-1/2 teaspoon celery seed.
Garlic Parmesan: 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, 5 tablespoons onion powder, 3 teaspoon garlic powder, – 1/2 teaspoon each sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
