You can buy gift baskets from lots of different places, but personally, I love gift baskets that have been created from scratch. This way, you can include personal items and make it perfect for the person you plan on giving it to. Take a look through this how to guide and you’ll be making your own awesome gift baskets in no time.
Pick a Nice Basket or Box
It’s called a gift basket, but you don’t necessarily need to use a basket to make one. You could pick a nice box instead, in theory. However, part of the charm of a gift basket is the fact that you can see all of the exciting goodies inside of it and that they are presented really nicely. Start by picking a suitable gift basket to display the things you plan on putting inside. There are lots of different places that sell baskets, so you don’t need to spend much at all finding the right one.
Decorate it Yourself
If you’ve bought this basket from a place that sells plain baskets, it’s up to you to decorate it yourself. You can make it as elaborate or keep it as simple as you like, depending on what you think looks best. You can find lots of tutorials and things online to help too, so there’s no need to guess what you should be doing. Some places specialize in selling empty gift baskets, so you won’t need to do anything at all to it to make it look good.
Pick Suitable Items to Fill the Basket
You probably already have an idea of what items you want in the basket, or you wouldn’t have come up with this idea in the first place. You could theme the basket, or the items may have nothing at all to do with one another. It’s up to you! All you need to do is make sure the items look nice by arranging them properly. Also, make sure you won’t damage another item my displaying it close to another item. Food items for instance, shouldn’t really be placed by cleaning items or anything containing chemicals. If you’re not sure what you should be putting inside, have a look at gift baskets online for a little inspiration.
Get Your Gift Wrap on Point
When everything is all arranged and looking pretty, it’s time to gift wrap your basket. This is usually done with clear plastic wrap so that the receiver can see what’s inside their basket of goodies. A bow or something like that can be used too, to make it look really nice. If you’ve placed food inside of the basket, make sure it won’t be affected by the wrap. All food items should be hygienically wrapped up so that they won’t spoil, especially if you’ve created them yourself.
