Gift baskets are a great way to show someone
you care. It means that you have really paid attention to someone’s
likes and dislikes enough to put together a basket of their favorites.
Many gift baskets have themes which can
allow you to concentrate on a particular
time in their life, whether it is a basket
for a new baby on the way or a basket
full of Valentine goodies.
Making your own baskets can be fun and pretty easy if you have
a flair for decorative things and you have the time to put them
together. Very often, other structures are used for the base depending
on the occasion. For example, you could use a baby bag as a base
and fill it up with all a mother would need for her new arrival.
Don’t be scared to use your imagination.

There is no limit to the many ways you could be creative. Let’s
say for instance your parents are celebrating their 20th wedding
anniversary and you want to put together a basket for them, you
could fill your basket or base with pictures of the family, their
favorite treats and other little items. If your father has a favorite
sport, you could purchase an item related to sports such as a hat
with his team logo. If he likes golf, you could add a few golf balls
in the basket. Gift certificates to their favorite restaurant or
tickets to the movies are great basket items. If you are crafty
yourself you could make a few of the items for the basket.
