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.
