need your creative ideas

I am looking for 3 baskets to put class baskets together for the auction. If you have seen any good deals on baskets please let me know where. These are not things I normally buy so I don't even know where to start. I don't want Dollar Tree quality but also don't want to spend a lot.
The themes are beach, family night, and chocolate fondue so if you have any other ideas on how to wrap these up I am open to those as well.

Have you tried Goodwill? Sometimes they have really nice baskets for super cheap. Also Walmart or Joannes sometimes has good prices. For beach what about wrapping them in a picnic blanket/tablecloth? For the family one, my friend gave me a basket type laundry basket ($2 at Walmart) and put board games and snacks and a movie gift card in it. Hmmm, I'll see if I can think of anything else. Could you wrap beach stuff in an open kite somehow? If you go to Hasbro.com there are printable coupons for games, you can get the travel size of some of them at Walmart or Target for like .24 with the coupons. If you don't allready have stuff for the family basket. Target has (in the baby section and maybe other sections), soft sided fabric boxes that are really cute that you could put things in. There are also some really cute reusable grocery bags out there too, or a tote bag. I don't know, just some ideas! :)

Michaels will sometimes have 50% off sales or at least a coupon for that. They have really nice baskets. Even thought that is all the way in Keizer it is a good place to check.

Sewing isn't that hard, you should try... then you can sew a big capri sun pouch beach bag for the beach one. Or, get another mom in the class to sew it up, it seriously takes like 1/2 and hour.
