The Ideal Gift: Creating A Homemade Holiday Gift Basket
We all would love to give the perfect gift. The problem is that the perfect gift is usually not a singular but a plural concept. There is no one thing that will satisfy, but a group of things may just do the trick. That is why a homemade holiday gift basket may be just the ticket for finding and giving that perfect gift.
Homemade holiday gift baskets don’t need to be expensive. You can use all kinds of baskets from the woven baskets you can buy at craft stores to hat boxes and even a laundry basket might do depending on what you put in it. Here are just a few ideas for those homemade holiday gift baskets.
Use Your Imagination
One very popular choice is to make a chocolate gift basket. Fill a picnic hamper with different kinds of chocolate: chocolate bars, cocoa, mocha coffee, Hersey kisses, etc. The more kinds of chocolate you can come up with the better. Don’t skimp on the quality. Find a good chocolatier and go for it. The receiver will be thrilled unless they are some kind of alien. I mean who doesn’t like chocolate.
Another idea for a homemade holiday gift basket is to fill a basket with the object of someone’s hobby. Fill a basket with gold accessories such as balls, tees, and gloves. Fill a basket with all kinds of art supplies for the artist. Fill a basket with CD’s, sheet music, concert tickets for the music lover.
For newlyweds fill a basket with his and her lingerie, a bottle of wine, a good movie and popcorn for a night in. They will love it because you have given them a romantic evenings adventure. For the mother to be, perhaps baby supplies. But don’t forget to give her some goodies for herself such as bubble bath and lotion. Give her some relaxation music. Let her know you’re thinking about her.
The key to gift giving is making it personal. If you can give someone a homemade holiday gift basket that reflects who they are as a person they will remember it for a lifetime. It doesn’t have to be fancy, but it does need to be from the heart. Use your imagination and be playful. Go out of your way when you make a homemade holiday gift basket and you will be appreciated. It is a gift that keeps on giving.
