Romance In A Basket

Dec 1, 2007
Everyone's relationship could use a little more romance. The gestures don't have to be grand, they just have to BE; period. That is where gift baskets can play such an important part in romance. You can give a personal gift basket to your partner for them to enjoy just because you love them or you can put together a basket for the both of you to enjoy.

What is it that makes a gift basket so romantic and such an appreciated gift? Why does a gift basket seem so much more romantic than handing them an ordinary boxed shaped wrapped present? Maybe it is the beauty of a gift basket. Gift baskets are usually arranged and decorated so beautifully that they can be proudly set out for display. Another reason why gift baskets seem so much more romantic than a tradition gift is the abundance of it. When you see a beautiful basket overflowing with gifts that have been chosen especially for you, well, it evokes many glorious feelings of love and appreciation, which brings us to our next point. All of the gifts - ALL of the gifts have been picked out with you in mind. A lot of thought and planning went into choosing and arranging this gift. From the basket itself down to the smallest item in it, they were all chosen for you. Even if your partner purchased it from a gift basket retailer, he or she thought that this gift basket was full of gifts that you would enjoy.

The best romantic gift baskets are the ones that are purchased either by one person in the couple or by both people together in order to be enjoyed together. These are lovely baskets that are full of items that are to be delighted in by both of you. There are many different themes that a couple could choose from. Select a gift basket that both of you will enjoy and that includes activities for you to do together.

One of the most popular romantic gift baskets is a spa experience basket. This huge beautiful basket could include beautifully fragrant candles along with bath oil or bubble bath, lovely lotions and a loofah sponge, massage oils, and a massage tool. Enjoy a luxurious day bathing together and giving each other massages. Get back in touch with each other - literally.

Another very popular romantic gift basket is the dessert picnic. This basket has a large selection of chocolate truffles, a fruit torte, homemade cookies and berries and a large bottle of champagne with two champagne glasses. In order to enjoy this gift basket together, pick your favorite picnic spot (somewhere close to your bedroom is recommended) and begin feeding each other. This decadent picnic will be a hard on to top.

There are many other styles of gift baskets that are all themed on food. You can get an Italian dinner gift basket, which includes everything you need to create a delicious pasta dish. The meal gift basket comes complete with crusty bread, a bottle of red wine and a delicious dessert. Or you could choose a gift basket of savory treats that would include meats such as salami and summer sausage alone with a cheese log, different types of crackers and assorted spreads. This basket also includes a bottle of wine that compliments the assortment. Still another food gift basket selection is a breakfast in bed gift basket. This has all of the ingredients to put together a yummy breakfast and go back into bed to enjoy it. The basket includes a tray to place all of the food on in bed and also comes with champagne. One word of warning: Don't fight over who is going to get out of bed and make the breakfast. If you can't decide then the best solution would be for both of you to have fun in the kitchen preparing breakfast and then meet back in bed together. The selections and categories of gift baskets that have food are so numerous that it would be impossible to list them all here. Basically, if you can imagine it, it may already be available for purchase.

Other categories for romantic gift baskets are romantic movies, books and music. These types of items can range from mainstream romantic movies and books all the way to very erotic. You could spend time together cuddling while watching favorite romantic movies or spend time reading to each other from a romantic novel or beautiful poetry.

Very similar to gift baskets of romantic movies and books are gift baskets that also include romantic games for the couple to play. There is quite a selection of couples only board games and card games that can open up inhibitions and provide hours of fun and enjoyment.

Polities' gift baskets are fine examples of gifts that should be enjoyed together. But, it is just as romantic when one person presents a beautiful gift basket full of a cornucopia of gifts for the one that they love. It is always very romantic when someone goes beyond just saying, "I love you" to doing something which is evidence of that fact. Always take the other person's likes and dislikes into account when you choose a gift basket for them. If your husband or wife is currently dieting and trying to lose those last few pounds, and gift baskets full of chocolates, cookies and sweets will not be very considerate.

As was stated before, almost anything can be made up into a gift basket. A selection of sexy underwear can be artfully arranged in a beautiful small basket and presented to the other person. Still other romantic gift ideas that could be included in any gift basket are matching rings that are engraved with personal messages, naming a star after the other person, or a message of love that is been sealed inside of a bottle. Even more ideas are a beautiful indoor herb garden or personalized crystal champagne glasses.

No matter what you choose as your act of romance, whether it is a grand gesture or one of the simpler ones, any romantic act is a step in the right direction.
