Gift Baskets

When you can't think of any specific object, gift baskets are always a good way to go. They make great housewarming gifts or gifts for the hostess of a party, as well as on many other occasions. Their many different components make them fun to unwrap and the many different products make them suitable for almost any occasion. There are so many varieties and combinations that you'll easily be able to pick out the right one. However, if none of the pre-made options work for you, a cheaper option is always just to make one yourself.  

Use gift baskets to send different messages. Some can say "Welcome to the neighbourhood" while others can say "I hope you feel better." Whatever the case may be you can either purchase or create a basket that will help send that message and possibly brighten someone's day.

Making Your Own Basket

Helpful Tips

  • First decide on a theme.
    • Is it going to be silly? Are you giving it as a 'get well' package?
    • Everything in the basket should go along with that theme.
  • Second decide on the size of your container.
    • How many products and the types of products you'll use will greatly depend on the size of your basket.
  • Decide on the types of products.
    • Are going to be using food? Or Wine? Or both?
    • While a basket of mixed goodies is fun, they should all have at least one thing in common. It could be that they are all silly or all useful in your home.
