Gift baskets make great holiday gifts for co-workers, neighbors, and even as teacher gifts but they can get pricey. I love searching Costco for gift basket filler items because they sell so many items in multi-packs that can be easily opened and disbursed into multiple gift baskets.

Best Costco Gift Basket Filler Ideas
Hallmark Holiday Disney Mickey Ornaments 4 Pack
There are perfect for the Disney fans in your life. Hallmark ornaments are always great quality and these can easily be gifted by themselves or put into a gift basket. The cost of a 4 pack is $26.99 so that makes each one only $6.75.
Lemon Women’s Cozy Ankle Socks 5 Pack
The Lemon women’s cozy ankle socks are super soft and luxurious. There were two different color options at my store, one was pink and gray and the other pack was blue and gray. The lining of the socks were very soft, perfect for wearing around the house. Since they come as a pack of five for $12.99, each pair is only $2.60.
Lucky Brand Super Soft Book Sock 6 Pack
If you think people may already have enough cozy socks for the house, check out these Lucky Brand boot socks they can wear out of the house. They are super soft and warm. They fit women’s sizes 4-10 and come in a pack of 6. There are 2 different colored packs to choose from. At only $9.99 per pack that makes each pair $1.67!
Signature Ceramic Bowl Set of 6
I thought these were really nice bowls that could easily be divided. You could even use these as the “gift basket” and put some candy, k cups, baked goods, etc. inside of it and wrap it in some cellophane. The sayings on the bowls are: Peace, Joy, Calm, Happy, Love, and Grateful. The set is only $12.99 which makes each bowl $2.17.

Manna Color Changing Cups with Confetti 12 Pack
These are really fun and would make great gifts for kids. You could put some candy or little surprises inside, awesome if you have a bunch of nieces and nephews you have to buy for. Each cup comes with a reusable straw and lid. When filled the clear cups change to confetti, the orange turns to red, and the green turns navy. The 12 pack is $14.99 so each cup is only $1.25.
Manna Antimicrobial Stainless Steel Straw Set
We use stainless steel straws in my house and we love them. These are great for people who are trying to be more eco-friendly. This set comes with 6 different straws, 2 cleaning brushes, and a carrying pouch. You could break the set down and it would make each straw only 83 cents! But at only $4.97 per pack, you can give a full pack without breaking the bank. I know this is the clearance price, so I am not sure what the regular price may be.
Bellevue Luxury Soy Blend Candle 4 Pack
This pack of 12 oz. candles makes for a luxurious and inexpensive gift basket filler idea. The candle scents are: Ocean Moss, Blackberry Sage, Chai Cardamom, and Vanilla Butter. These 2 wick candles are made with essential oils. The pack of 4 is only $19.99 which makes each candle $5. That’s a lot cheaper than Bath and Bodyworks!
Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa Mix Set of 4
This adorable set of hot cocoa mix from Swiss Miss comes in four delicious flavors: Milk Chocolate, Peppermint, Marshmallow, and Caramel. These would look good in any winter or holiday themed gift basket. Each four pack is $9.99 so each tin is $2.50.
Popcornopolis Holiday Cheer Variety Pack
This Popcornopolis Holiday Cheer Variety Pack is so darn cute! It comes with 7 different flavors: Hot Cocoa, Caramel Corn, Cinnamon Toast, Kettle Corn, Snicker Doodle, Vanilla Bean, and Zebra Popcorn. I am assuming that means there are 7 individual bags inside, that is what it felt like when I felt the bag. So at $19.99 for the pack that makes each individual bag $2.85.
EOS Organic Lip Balm Sets
Who couldn’t use some lip balm in the winter? I saw three different sets of EOS lip balms at my Costco. There were Eos Flavor Lab, All-natural shea lip balm, and 100% natural organic spheres. The first two sets had 9 lip balms per pack and the spheres had 7 per pack. They were each $13.99 so each lip balm is as low as $1.55. We may see these go on sale in the coming months, so keep an eye out!
Holiday Greetings Collection Hand Soap
If you are planning on giving your gift basket before Christmas, these hand soaps would be a great gift basket filler. They are really big 21.5 ounce bottles. There are four different scents: Winter Berry, Candy Cane, Pine Forest, and Holly Berry. Each four pack is $9.99 which makes each bottle $2.50.
These were my favorite gift basket filler finds at Costco this month. You can easily get 5 or 6 of these items and make 5 gift baskets for less than $15 each and have them look like you paid so much more!
I am planning on going back in Nov and Dec. to see if there are any newer items that can work as gift basket fillers. I will keep you posted.
