One of my close friends I’ve known since childhood is getting married at the end of summer. She lives thousands of miles away from me overseas, andunfortunately I won’t be able to attend the wedding or her bridal shower as my kids will be ready to start the new school year that week. I’ve been thinking what I could do for her, and finally came up with the idea of putting together a cute gift basket. Luckily my mom is attending both events. I’ll send the my bridal shower gift basket with my mom who’ll give my friend the gift at her bridal shower.

Since our younger years both my friend, and I loved Betsey Johnson. Both girly girls, we couldn’t get enough of the happy, bold colors, and whimsical designs. When I was shopping at our local supermarket Fred Meyer, I came across KLEENEX® Betsey Styled Single Packs. They came in three designs Hearts, Kiss, and Zippers. ( you can also find KLEENEX® Betsey Styled Wallet 3 packs in select stores)

I was immediately drawn to the pretty roses, and became nostalgic seeing the big kiss on the side. I had a tee-shirt with a similar print when we were in high school. I purchased a box of my own along with one for my friend. Also an idea was born – my gift basket would have a Betsey Johnson theme.

The four sides of my adorable, limited edition KLEENEX® Betsey Styled Single Packs. Isn’t it amazing how design can make even tissue paper a decorational item. This looks so charming on my nightstand.

Now onto the Betsey Johnson inspired gift basket I made for my childhood friend.

I chose a wide wicker basket tray. The most fun part was going shopping, and thinking of items I knew my friend would like. I wanted to find pieces that would be personal, things that would be fun to receive on a bridal shower, and use at her honeymoon & beyond.

My friend uses scarves all the time. The first scarf I found is this cute color combo of turquoise, pink, and green tassels. It’s inspired by Betsey Johnson’s similar flamingo print scarf. Aren’t the birds too stinkin’ cute? 🙂

I was also so lucky to find many actual Betsey items I know my friend will enjoy. I picked up one of the designers’ signature necklaces with the Eiffel tower we both love, and timeless pearls. For earrings I chose the very feminine flower studs that would go with so many outfits.

Front and center is the Kiss KLEENEX® Betsey Styled Single Pack. I know my friend will appreciate how this one product inspired me, and seeing it via Skype; she already told me she’ll display it on her vanity.

Also in my gift basket are a Betsey Johnson fragrance, and a second white/lace infinity scarf. This one is from Betsey Johnson line, and would look amazing at her honeymoon with maxi dresses. I included some hair ties for the beach with Betsey inspired bold, happy prints. Finally I found my very favorite piece- a polka dot black Betsey Johnson glasses. Super nostalgic, very feminine, and just right for my friend. <3 I hope she’ll love it all.

    I really like Betsey Johnson, though I appreciate her spunk, sometimes it is too much for me. Every one needs Kleenex, it is a house hold necessity.

    • Theboxqueen

      Exactly! I like that the Kleenex has the Betsey signature designs but it’s also suitable for everyone if the clothing etc is too loud. You still get her joy around your house. 🙂 XOXO, Elif

  • Cheryl

    Very cute! My aunt loves anything flamingo so I need to find that scarf for her. I actually didn’t know that Betsey Johnson brand was still around, great to see that it is!

    • Theboxqueen

      Cheryl I found the flamingo scarf from Nordstrom Rack. It really is quite beautiful. If your aunt likes flamingo’s this would be a great choice. Betsey Johnson line is around, I think she is especially good at making accessories. I own a lot of her necklaces, so whimsical and original. 🙂 Happy Sunday. XOXO, Elif

  • Priyanka

    This is such a cute idea Elif! Where did you find that scarf, love it!!
