Please?
I want to do up a few gift baskets and have the option for create your own to personalize for your giftee this year. I can't do anything normal and just get plain baskets, so I'm trying to find either wood crates, galvanized (or rustic colored) tubs/trays/ovals, or wire baskets. I'm having trouble finding anything good in my price range. I was hoping for around $3 a piece, but I think under $5 I can work with. Probably looking for around 25 or so... not a ton. Any ideas?

Also, looking for a good source for some nice inexpensive soap dishes. Anyone?

Right here, silly!
You can also find some great buys at Goodwill. Last year, I bought a bunch of different wicker gift baskets that looked brand new/never been used. I must've bought about 10 of them for $5.00 total or something like that. Compared to buying them at Michaels's, that was a steal!

I had to make up a basket for a charity event and found some cute wire baskets at dollar tree. They came in different colors and held 5 soaps and bath salts in the middle.
I just went on their site and they didn't list the baskets I found but these organizers in different sizes would make really nice baskets as well.


Found these ceramic soap dishes at dollar tree as well.

I've sometimes found things that work in the dollar spot at Target. Good Will is also good treasure hunting if you think outside the box. Pretty bowls, wicker baskets, etc.
