Default gift set/auction packaging?

I am donating a few gift sets that include tutu's, kufis, headbands, and clipppies, to a local charity for auction. They typically like items to be gift basket type... Any ideas on how to package something like this to make them look nice? Any photos? I'm also donating a set of three appliquéd onesies... and I'm clueless on how to present that too... Thanks for any ideas! I've never really put whole sets together before

When I gave 3 outfits to a silent auction earlier this month, they actually hung them in a little cluster on the wall. Most of the other stuff was in baskets, but you had to really be able to see the clothes to check them out.
Mmmmm....most of the girls on here are super creative...I would love to see what they come up with.

Do you have a HL nearby? In their party decor section they have some really cute themed decorations that include some heavy paper basket type things that you could put your items in and then wrap them in the cellophane bags. If they are too deep just stuff the bottom with paper, styrofoam, or whatever you can find and then cover it with matching tissue paper.

This is the only example I could find online, but my local store has several different prints.

They also have some really cute patterned plastic bowls that would work well too!

OK, so I know this is a terrible pic, but you get the idea. I purchased the wire form at Hobby Lobby. She has little hooks and spirals all over which makes it super easy to hang things. This is the form I always purchase when donating auction items. Catch it 1/2 price for around $8

This is how I did a tutu/halo/wand for an auction. It was a huge hit! The form was kind of the same as the one above but it stood on its own. It was from HL.

Try a clear vase, think dollar store or walmart, that you can put tutu around, then maybe wrap your headbands on as well. Clip the clippies on the headband or even put styrofoam inside vase and poke some skewers out the top to put clippies on???
