Don’t like the stress of gifting? I know the feeling. A million things could go wrong: shipping delays, items out of stock, wrong products sent, damaged goods, etc… Introducing burr basket, the latest trend on TikTok with over 80 million views and growing! It’s not specific to any particular holiday, but more like a seasonal vibe, a treat for yourself or a loved one to celebrate the coming of winter. Burr baskets come in all shapes and sizes, but the main goal is to tailor them to the recipient so they can have fun discovering all the seasonal goodies.

What should you put in a burr basket? That’s a really good question. The answer is simple – anything you like, as long as it’s a nod to cold weather, cozy times, resolutions, or winter treats. Think fluffy socks, hot cocoa, cookies, a diffuser with holiday scents, bath goodies, or even fitness gear, if you know the giftee is into that – the options are limitless! Here are some burr basket examples using my favorite NOW® products that will suit different lifestyles.

The ‘Gluten-Free’ Burr Basket

Surprise your gluten-free bestie with these amazing finds!

  • Macadamia Nut Cooking Oil ($13.99) – Richer and nuttier than EVOO and has a distinct unique flavor with a touch of sweetness. Perfect for quick stir frying and in salads.
  • Organic Hot Cocoa ($10.99) – Nothing says ‘cozy’ more than a cup of hot cocoa on a snowy winter day.
  • Quinoa Penne Pasta ($4.99) – Think all gluten-free pasta tastes the same? Try this one! It’s very flavorful and, in my opinion, has better texture than regular semolina pasta.
  • Cauliflower and Multigrain Elbows Pasta ($4.99) – Why stick to just one kind of gluten-free pasta when you can try multiple?
  • Honey-Roasted Pecans ($10.99) – Simply delicious! These are some of the best honey-roasted pecans I’ve had!
  • Monk Fruit Liquid – Amaretto ($12.99) – For a touch of marzipan goodness in your morning coffee.

The ‘Fitness Bunny’ Burr Basket

For anyone who chooses an active lifestyle, whether they’re a master or a beginner.

The ‘Cozy Girl’ Burr Basket

For the one who likes to spend winters with a good book and a hot drink.

The ‘Beauty Queen’ Burr Basket

For that friend whose priorities in life include moisturized skin, shiny hair, and all kinds of self-care!

  • Vegan Hair, Skin & Nails* ($23.99) – This completely vegan complex was designed to promote beauty from within and offers antioxidant protection.*
  • Organic Marula Oil ($14.99) – This fast-absorbing beauty oil works wonders as a facial moisturizer but can also be used to tame flyaways or moisturize dry cuticles in a pinch.
  • Vitamin C + Ferulic Acid Serum ($19.99) – One of my favorite skincare products from NOW, this serum boasts an effective brightening formula that helps address the appearance of uneven skin tone.
  • Cocoa Butter with Jojoba Oil ($12.99) – For those lazy days when you can’t be bothered to do a multi-step skincare routine. This butter can be used on face, body, and hair.

What’s in my own burr basket? Because, of course, I had to make one that perfectly reflects my 2024 goals and resolutions, and you are welcome to use it as inspiration, too. My basket was styled for NYE and my husband and I unboxed it together after the clock hit midnight. Since we share similar goals for this year, I decided to share this gift with him, so now we are using everything together. Psst! Bonus points if you noticed that my basket is shaped like the state of Michigan where I live.

The ‘I Want to Be More Active in 2024’ Burr Basket

The main resolutions for the upcoming year are to move more, eat better, and treat my body with love and respect it deserves.

  • Goal: to meet my dietary goals. // Vitamin D-3 5000 IU Chewables* ($14.99) – The only vitamin my body is deficient in, according to bloodwork. I love these minty chewables because they make taking my daily dose fun and delicious!
  • Goal: find better options for a quick energy boost than energy drinks. //  Matcha Green Tea ($16.90) – You get a lot of matcha for the price and it comes in a nice resealable bag to keep it fresh between uses. Also, it wakes me up better than coffee.
  • Goal: to use healthier sweeteners. //  Manuka Honey ($24.99) – Manuka honey has that distinct spicy flavor that is very different from regular honey. I use it as a topping for ice cream and yogurt, and as a sweetener in tea, coffee, and matcha.
  • Goal: to meet my protein goals, every day. // Egg White Protein Powder Creamy Vanilla ($49.99) – This is by far my favorite protein powder, it tastes like an indulgent milkshake.
  • Goal: to nourish my skin from within as I enter my 40s.* // Collagen Jelly Beauty Complex* ($19.99) – I used collagen supplements before, but they weren’t part of my regular routine. These jelly sticks are very easy to take daily because they are delicious and perfectly portioned.
  • Goal: to stay hydrated during workouts.* // Effer-Hydrate Effervescent Tablets* ($6.99) – Unless I’m doing cardio, sometimes I forget to stay hydrated during a workout, so having a fizzy drink in front of me is a nice reminder to take a sip between sets, even if I’m not thirsty. These tablets turn plain water into a refreshing carbonated drink.
  • Goal: to use cleansing oil every night. // Soothing Rose Facial Cleansing Oil ($6.99) – I somehow grew out of habit of using cleansing oils daily and my skin didn’t like that at all. This one is among my favorites, so it should help re-develop the habit. It feels soothing on the skin and remove waterproof makeup.
  • Goal: to moisturize the body every day, even in the summer. // Aloe Soothing Gel ($8.99) – This odorless, lightweight gel-cream makes it so easy to moisturize every day, especially if you don’t like sticky or oily lotions. It also doubles as a soothing after-sun treatment.
