Awesome Coca-Cola Gift Baskets that layer on love
It is quite amazing when you can get together around the holidays and actually give back to the community, especially individuals in need. This year we decided to give back to our community, by following Coca-Cola’s lead in the One Warm Coat drive by making awesome Coca-Cola gift baskets that Layer on Love.
The holidays are really about giving back and companies like Coca-Cola are such an inspiration to us all!
Coca-Cola has teamed up with Walmart and One Warm Coat. You may have seen the signs up in many Walmart locations, supporting the cause. With this said, this year Coca-Cola is on a mission to donate over half a million coats! If you also want to follow their lead, help out and #LayerOnLove by donating a coat.

Layer on Love Gift Baskets
This season my fellow Mama in Black, Sarah and I will be giving back to the community by creating small gift baskets that will “Layer on Love”. We will be giving the gift baskets to people in need within the vicinity of our neighborhoods.
We shopped for Coca-Cola products at our local Walmart store and also sought out cozy items to comfort and keep our fellow friends in need cozy this season.
Sarah and I got together with our kiddo’s and made some baskets on Sunday afternoon! Prior to the gang coming over, I dolled up my house up and set my Coca-Cola themed tablescape!
I set the cold, glass bottles of Coca-Cola on a cake stand to make them stand out and displayed a portion of the items we will be using for our basket making party.
Doesn’t Sarah look stoked to have a Coca-Cola in a bottle!
So the way we layer on love is by carefully placing each item layered within the basket.
First we start with two slices of tissue paper and carefully fold it into the basket.
Next you will place your Coca-Cola mini can into the center of the basket making the can the focal point.
Add the Chocolates and delicious cookies to add a little extra sweetness to someone’s life!
Last but not least, layer in those cozy socks!
The gift baskets were wrapped up with clear cellophane wrap and closed with some pretty curled ribbon.
Curling ribbon is super easy! Simply grab the plastic or nylon type ribbon with one hand, open your scissors and carefully hold the bottom blade to the ribbon and drag the ribbon across the blade, holding the ribbon with with your thumb. When you let go, you should have a curled ribbon!
The final product!
We ended up making a bunch! I have driven around and have been able to give two away to date, as it is sometimes difficult to find transients throughout the day. I will continue my mission to layer on love and pass it forward.
By coming together and making a difference in our community by putting together packs like this, and by donating to One Warm Coat® on Coke.com/LayerOnLove, we could collectively help to put a coat on one million people in need this winter!
