I am a die-hard fan of HOMEMADE GIFTS and since football season is in full force, I made this homemade football gift basket.

It would be perfect to take to a game viewing party and I am sure you would be the STAR of the party!

Initially, I was planning on using a regular basket BUT that just felt too traditional and “cutesy.”

It was NOT the vision I had in my mind.

So, hubby suggested using an ice bucket which was simply BRILLIANT!

You can use everything inside the ice bucket to set up the party and then FILL up the empty bucket with ice and chill your favorite sodas and drinks.

How COOL does that sound?

Anyways, for savory snacks, I included chips and popcorn… CLASSICS!

And for sweet snacks, I added two kinds of SNICKERS® bars.

The SNICKERS® Crisper and the SNICKERS® bars with football themed packaging.

These candy bars were pretty awesome because they had cool phrases like “Sacked” and “Rushed.”

They will only be around CVS for a limited time.

So, be sure to pick up a few before they run out of them 🙂
