You can create a food gift basket for as little or as much money as you wish to spend. This sort of gift is so versatile; you can make it general or very personal. It all depends on the occasion or the situation. Here’s a good idea! If you need a small gift for each of your co-workers, you can make spiced nuts and wrap each gift in a different, creative manner. If you want to make a very personalized food basket, you can make it with a theme. Just fill it with things you know your family member or friend is sure to love. Some good examples are fruit gift baskets, coffee gift baskets, or wine gift baskets. Your list of themes for your gift basket is only limited by your imagination.
It is not necessary to collect a lot of expensive gourmet foods to present someone with a nice food gift basket. You can add a personal touch that lets them know you took the time to make this gift special and just for them. Say you have a British friend; some nice flavored teas in a pretty teacup will surely be a welcome gift. Put some fresh scones on the saucer and wrap it up with mesh or pretty tissue paper. Say you have a terrific cookie recipe, measure out the dry ingredients into an old milk bottle or jar. Add a handmade gift tag that gives the baking instructions, and you have a lovely, thoughtful gift.
If you create Christmas gift baskets for all of your friends and family, you will find that your Christmas shopping is a breeze. You can truly reduce your holiday stress by buying small gift items in bulk to use in each of your gift baskets. You can use an assortment of containers to add variety to your gift baskets. Try doing something besides traditional baskets. A useful container like a colander, mixing bowl, or flower pot can make a nice gift “basket”.
You can really show your family and friends how special you think they are by preparing a unique gift basket for each one. You don’t have to make a gigantic, expensive basket full of gourmet foods. Put a few simple things together in a basket and decorate it with a pretty ribbon. The effort you put in to making your basket will show your loved one that you took the time to consider their interests to put together a beautiful and unique food gift basket just for them.
