How to Make Candle Gift Baskets

Aug 5, 2008
Would you like to give a gift with a personal touch to someone? A good suggestion is to make that person a special candle gift basket. This gift is a set of candles neatly prepared and arranged together inside a container of your choice. It is special because you painstakingly prepare it out of your own hands. In this fast-paced world where everything is in the 'instant' mode, a hand-crafted gift means everything.

To start with your candle gift basket project, you have to first get some specialized candles to include in the set. But you just don't gather what you see at the store. You have to specifically think of the person you'll give the candles to. What is her personality like? Is she a bubbly person or a timid one? Is she a person with a strong personality or someone who strikes you as mild and delicate? You have to know this as you shop because the candle's color, shape, and aroma should perfectly match its recipient.

For bubbly people, yellow and orange candles are good suggestions. These colors are good symbols of their sunny personality. Timid persons can go for blue and red is perfect those with a rather strong personality. You can give pink and white candles to a mild and delicate person. As for scents, you've got many choices too. There are citrus scents, herbal scents, candy scents, and many others. You can mix and match different scents and put several of them inside the basket. Or you can just go for one unique scent for a much better impact.

Once you have the candles ready, the next step is to look for a container where you can place the items in. If you have some leftover baskets from Christmas, that would do. Else, you might want to go to an arts and crafts store and get the one that would perfectly hold all the candles as you arrange them in one neat pile.

You are going to need decorative paper and paper fillings too. Put them inside the basket to give your gift a filled-up look. Ribbons, laces, and colored transparent sheets would make up the whole set. After you have filled the container, cover it with a colored transparent sheet of plastic. Or you can just give it as is. Just tie a ribbon on the basket's handle for an artistic effect.

Now your candle gift basket is ready. To make it even more special, you can add a handwritten note to it. Of course, you can also add other stuff inside. You can put flowers, a bottle of wine, or bath and body items. Put anything in it that you'll know for sure will be enjoyed by its recipient.
