You Can Make A Holiday Gift Basket

Aug 17, 2007
Tired of trying to find just the right present for that oh so important person in your life. Or even those not so important people in your life. Making and giving a holiday gift basket could be just the thing your looking for. So your not a real creative, crafty kind of person. It doesn't really matter. What matters, is that you know the people your buying gifts for. At least I assume you do. Why else would you be giving them gifts? Knowing that person gives you an edge, that no retailer has. You can put just the right collection of gifts together that will appeal to your gift receiver.

Just A Little Planning

If it truly is the thought that counts, then now is the time to prove it. Spend some time thinking about what your intended recipient enjoys and wants. Think about how they spend their free time, what hobbies they have, what interests them, and maybe what is something that they would never buy for them self. These are all items that could go into their holiday gift basket. Spending some time doing that now, is far better than traipsing around some cheesy commercial mall at the last second hoping some salesperson will know what it is your special someone would enjoy as a gift.

Step by Step - Basket by Basket

First of all, you'll need to pick out the basket or container to hold the gifts in. It doesn't even have to be a basket (they have been kind of done to death). It could be a decorative box, or if you use your imagination a little, something related to the receiver of the gift. For example, if your buying for that handyman in the family, then perhaps a simple tool box filled with gifts will make their day.

One way of doing a gift basket, is to buy one main gift for the basket. The "centerpiece" gift, which should be placed in a prominent place in the basket. Plus a number of "dainties", or secondary gifts. Dainties would be smaller, usually less expensive, but complimentary to the main gift, and something the gift recipient will enjoy.

Finally, decorate the gift in a manner appropriate for the gift basket and gift receiver. Imagination, creativity, and a sense of humor all count here. Remember, to think about the person receiving the gift, and what would strike their fancy. It is after all, the thought that counts.
