If you are trying to come up with a new and original gift for Valentine’s
Day, you might consider trying your hand at basket making. Because
flowers and chocolate has been so overused on this occasion, you
will surely gain points for being original.
The basket or base for your creation is your centerpiece,
everything else works around it. Remember to use something that
you think will be meaningful to the person you’re giving it
Line the basket or base with a material that is festive
for the occasion, in this case it might be red tissue paper or something
else that reflects love.
You could use lots of flowers as your filler between the
objects in your basket. Fresh flowers are always great on Valentines
You could use a plastic with hearts to wrap your basket
in keeping with the holiday.
Consider the things your partner likes and take it from there!
