Have you seen Disney’s FROZEN yet?  If you haven’t, you have GOT to go!  We took our kids to see FROZEN the day it came to theaters (our usual routine for new Disney movies), and we all LOVED the movie and the amazing songs that were sung.  Of course after seeing the movie my kids wanted the beautiful dolls and FROZEN toys to play with, so I decided to put together a fun gift basket to put under the Christmas tree that they are sure to love!

I love putting together gift baskets because you can tailor everything to the person you are giving the gift too.  In this case, I wanted everything to be FROZEN related, so that meant Disney FROZEN toys, snow, and snowflakes.  I picked up lots of adorable FROZEN toys at Walmart.  They had a great selection of toys that I know my kids will love to see under the tree on Christmas morning!

The Musical Magic Anna and Elsa dolls are the ones I am the most excited about, because if you press their hands they light up and sing a song from the movie.  So cute!  I’m giving one to each of my daughters, since they are sisters like Anna and Elsa.

I just couldn’t give my girls a FROZEN gift basket and not include loveable Kristoff!

I like this set of toys because all of the main characters are in the box, including Olaf, Sven, and Hans. This set will keep my five-year-old occupied for hours!

And last but not least, I included this set with Anna, Elsa, and Olaf that I know they’ll love.

There were lots of other FROZEN toys, too, to choose from at Walmart that I might have to go back for ;)

I also bought a big basket, some sparkly snowflake ornaments, white batting, and then gathered some white spray paint, clear glitter, and snowflake ribbon that I already had.  The basket I bought was the perfect size for the toys, but not the perfect color.  It was a light grayish color.

I wanted the basket to be white and sparkly like snow, so I gave it a few coats of white spray paint, and then added clear sparkly glitter to the whole outside of the basket.

I then sprayed it with a clear sealer to make sure that the glitter stayed on the basket and not all over my floor.

After the basket had dried, I added almost a whole bag of batting to the inside to fill the basket up and to look like a blanket of snow.  Then I added the toys in, bigger boxes in the back, shorter boxes up front.

I tied a bow around the front of the basket with some pretty snowflake ribbon, and then added a glittery snowflake ornament to the front of the bow to add some more shine and to further enhance the FROZEN theme.

I cut the strings of a few more snowflake ornaments, and tucked them into the toys and the “snow” in the gift basket.

Isn’t it pretty?  I had planned on wrapping the whole gift basket inside some clear cellophane and tying a big bow on top, but I didn’t want to take away from the sparkle and shine of the basket and the snowflakes inside, plus this way my kids will be able to see the toys better before digging in and opening up their new toys!

While shopping for your FROZEN toys at Walmart, be sure to stop in at the Subway inside select Walmart locations like we did.  My little shopping buddy and I worked up an appetite with all that shopping!

If you buy a Fresh Fit Kids Meal, then the meal will come in a cute reusable FROZEN bag (through January 6th) with exclusive collectible designs and an exclusive FROZEN key chain.  Subway Walmart locations are the ONLY place you can get the FROZEN key chain when you buy a Fresh Fit Kids Meal.  My Walmart Subway was out of key chains, but we still got the cute reusable bag and a FROZEN puzzle.

I can’t wait to see the look on my kids’ faces when they see their FROZEN gift basket filled with toys from their new favorite movie!  I’m thinking I need to buy the soundtrack, too, and add it to the basket…. maybe with a tag that says “To Mom” on it?  ;)
