Aug 17, 2007
Choosing a gift for a loved one is very difficult.
You always want to give something they will love and appreciate and something special. The best gift you can give to your near and dear ones, is something made by you, that adds a special touch to the gift, making it exceptional and very personal. One can spend loads of money, to buy a wonderful and expensive gift, but making the gift on your own shows your. It is very difficult to decide what to make.

Making a fruit basket is an excellent option, but most of us do not know how to make a fruit basket.
Making a fruit basket isn't all that difficult to make as we think it is. Once you have decided which fruits you want to decorate the basket with, half your battle is won. Selecting the fruits can be a bit tricky. You should always carefully pick the fruits, according to their shapes, sizes and colours, in order to make your basket look uniform, colourful and stylish. You should choose a very classy yet colourful basket, to make your gift look grand.

You can either get a cane, straw, wooden, glass or a thick well crafted paper basket. A carefully selected basket will bring out the beauty of the gift. You can arrange the fruits neatly in the basket. You can also use the fruits to make a design or a shape inside the basket. You can then decorate the basket with similar coloured ribbons or streamers. Ribbon can be used on the handle of the basket as well, to make it look very stylish.

If you like you can put a small special gift in between the fruit basket, which will be a surprise for your loved one when they find it. You can also put small notes with every fruit or add a special touch to every item in the basket. Make your gift as innovative and unique as possible. Always stick to a colour scheme, which brings out the beauty of the gift. For instance, red ribbons used on red fruit, like apple, plum, cherries, pomegranate and so on, in a stylish cane basket is a fantastic present. Or you could make an assortment of their favourite fruits, which you know they will definitely love.

After having decorated the basket, you have the choice of wrapping your basket or leaving it open. You can use colourful paper to decorate it. Transparent paper, cellophane paper, handmade paper, butter paper, or thin colourful paper can be used to make it look even more stunning. As a final touch, you can put a bow or a paper made flower or a star on top of the fruit basket. A card can also be attached to the basket, which adds a personal touch. Your friend or your family will definitely appreciate the effort you have put in making the gift.
