Showing your fellow sorority sisters how much you care about them is so much fun during spooky season. You can leave their favorite candy with a heartfelt note outside their door, or fill a pumpkin-shaped basket with a boatload of treats, like freshly-baked snicker-doodles or a fuzzy blanket they've had their eye on. That kind of gift is called a "boo basket," and we came up with some adorable boo basket ideas for sorority sisters that'll give your big or little heart eyes.
It doesn't get much cuter than these baskets. Each has a unique or clever theme, and can easily be stuffed with bags of peanut butter cups, confetti shaped like skeletons, and sparkly string lights. To begin, you'll want to pick out the type of basket that makes the most sense for your sister — whether that be one that celebrates the zodiac signs, or one that's jam-packed with cozy items for a night in. Then, you'll want to start hitting "add to cart," and prepping your basket for the goodies that will soon arrive at your front door.
You and your sorority sisters can make a night of this and swap baskets together. Or, you can surprise your big or little with a cute boo basket right before they take their midterms. Here are 10 basket ideas to get you started that are sweet, spooky, and sentimental.
