15 best laundry gift basket ideas for a laundry lover.

WRITTEN BY Grove Collaborative • 16 min read

Do you have a friend or family member who has an almost obsessive love of laundry? The obsession is understandable. After all, the fresh, clean smell of still-warm clothes pulled from the dryer is a wonderful experience. There is something satisfying about placing fresh, crisp clothes into their respective drawers and hanging up properly pleated slacks.


So what do you get as a gift for the laundry lovers in your life? We suggest a laundry gift basket. Imagine the sparkle in their eyes as they open up an assortment of items selected just for them, created specifically for the laundry obsessed. To us it may seem to be a lackluster gift—but to your friend, no gift could be more thoughtful. They love that you get them and that you've gotten them a gift that gets to the heart of who they really are.


Take a look below for some of our fantastic laundry gift basket ideas that are also top-rated by actual Grove members.

FAQs

How do you make a laundry gift basket?

Now that we decided to give our friend a laundry gift basket for their birthday or other special occasion, we need to come up with some ideas of what would be the best items to throw together to make this holiday dream come true.


  • Begin with a laundry basket. You're going to need something to put all of the other goodies into. We recommend a bamboo basket or metal caddy that will never make it into a landfill.
  • Put in two or three refillable containers, such as glass spray bottles and soap dispensers. No gift basket is complete without some long-lasting durable item to help remind our friend of the time they opened the most wonderful gift of all time.
  • Add a unique natural laundry detergent like laundry sheets. Your friend is going to want to get their clothes their cleanest, and a good unique detergent tells them you're listening carefully.
  • Throw in some wool dryer balls and essential oils.
  • Toss in some chocolates and/or a bottle of wine. Of course they may be laundry obsessed, but a touch of dopamine is the perfect topper to any gift basket.

Once it's ready, toss a bow on it and present it to your friend when the time is right.


What are the best laundry detergents?

The best laundry detergents are the ones that will remove stains and clean clothes without doing harm to our skin or the environment. We recommend selecting natural detergents that are free of any synthetic chemical additives. Not only do these additives cause harm to the environment, but they can also make your clothes wear out quicker by eating away at the fabric fibers.


If you’re prone to skin irritation or have allergies, a fragrance-free detergent is the way to go. Chemical perfumes will irritate skin and trigger allergic reactions, so selecting a perfume-free detergent will greatly reduce any risk of a negative skin reaction. If you like your clothes to have that delightful, fresh fragrance when you pull them out of the dryer, add a drop or two of your favorite essential oil to the wash water before putting the clothes into the machine. Wool dryer balls and their accompanying essential oil also gives you great, fresh-smelling laundry.


Are collapsible laundry baskets worth it?

Have you ever finished folding your clothes and had two or three bulky baskets just sitting there, kicking about, with no good place to put them when you're done? Do you wake up and trip on these same baskets when you're getting dressed, simultaneously pretending they're not there, while also seething with anger at yourself (or your partner) for not putting them away the night before?


A collapsible laundry basket is one of the greatest inventions of the ages. Not only can you use it to tote your clothes up and down the stairs with relative ease, but once you're done, you can collapse the basket and easily stow it out of the way. You can easily slide them behind a dresser, or stash them in the upstairs hall closet, and not have to make a special trip down the stairs just to put them where they belong.


So, short answer, yes. Collapsible laundry baskets are entirely worth it.
