Where can I find cellophane to use for gift baskets? Also, does anyone have an idea of what kind of container I could use for a teen boy's gift basket? I'm trying to find something useful. I plan on getting body wash, deodorant, Axe spray etc. but am having a hard time figuring out a good useful container.

How about a garbage can to use in his room. I get my rolls of cellophane from Walmart in the craft section. I purchase the one that shrinks to fit once items are wrapped and tied with bows.You just use a blow dryer and it shrinks.

I would check walmart or amazon. I know walmart usually has it out at Easter time but not so sure if they have any before then.

I have found the basket bags at Dollar Tree. Sometimes you can find them with a bow included. I got my boys an Axe gift set that came in a really nice toiletry bag. You could find a plastic container for bath stuff, one with a handle to carry it, to use in the dorm when he goes away to college. I like the wastebasket idea. Or maybe a wire mesh or canvas cube organizer thingy. Or a drawstring backpack, you could put some cardboard in the bottom to help it stand up.

What about a tool box or an ammo box?

I think I'm going to get these baskets from Walmart.

Maybe use some kind of blanket or Christmas themed throw instead of cellophane?
I picked up the stuff for inside them today.
