Creating Gift Baskets For Women
Article by John Wollitz
If you’re looking for a gift idea for a woman, whether it be her birthday, Mother’s Day, or Valentine’s Day, gift baskets make an excellent choice. Creating a gift basket for a woman is a relatively easy task. To begin, you should focus on the likes and interests of the woman for whom it is intended. What is her favorite color? What does she like to do in her spare time? Does she have any specific hobbies or interests? Does she enjoys flowers, gardening, cooking, or a little bit of pampering? Once you have identified what she would most likely enjoy, the next step is to decide upon an appropriate theme for her gift basket.
Gardening Gift Baskets Brighten Her Day
A garden theme gift basket for women could be easily created with a quick visit to any specialty garden store or other major retailer that has a garden center. An area designated to gardening should provide plenty of ideas like new garden gloves, vegetable and flower seeds, a new hand shovel, hand rake and perhaps a garden apron. In addition, an instructional book on gardening would provide educational reading. Also, the inclusion of a garden journal would provide an opportunity for her to plan and record the seasons gardening successes.
A Woman Enjoys the Gift of Relaxation
A “relaxation or Pampering” thematic gift basket for women would focus on items that would help the recipient relax. A local retail store could provide a relaxation compact disc with calm and soothing music. Aromatherapy candles in lavender, rose or vanilla scent would be a popular choice to include in the basket. In addition, lotions, shampoos, conditioners, body soaps and bubble bath in a scent matching the candles would enhance the aromatic quality of the women’s gift basket. You could also include a bottle of wine, a wine glass and a bath pillow, to enhance the entire relaxation and pampering theme.
For the Love of Prose
If your gift ideas travel along a more literary path, a gift basket for women that focuses on reading and writing would be well recieved. Any bookstore or sources on the Internet can provide a quality list of literary choices for nearly any taste in literature. In addition, they also sell journals, fancy pen and pencil sets, decorative bookmarks, mini reading lights and a wide variety of magazines. After choosing the literature and literary accessories of your choice, you might want to include a coffee mug and a bag or coffee or collection of teas. The image of the items included in this gift basket would make any woman want to snuggle up with a good book and warm blanket and relax.
Pampering is a Safe Theme for Gift Baskets for Women
The most important part of building a gift basket for women is to have a clear idea of the passions or interests of the person you intend to give the basket to. If the gift is for a woman you know very little about, the best idea would be to create a pampering gift basket with a mild floral or fruit scented theme. In this way, the gift, while being a bit anonymous in it’s focus, would contain items that any woman would enjoy and appreciate.
