Make Your Own Gift Baskets
Haven’t you always wanted to give someone a beautiful gift basket, but didn’t have a clue how to put one together? Gift baskets are such a wonderful gift and can be given for any occasion. Let me tell you how to make such an amazing gift basket even you won’t believe you’ve made it!
First, start with your “basket”. It doesn’t need to be your typical wicker basket, try using a toy dump truck and fill up the bucket, or use a laundry basket, a plastic container or even a purse, depending on the occasion and who it’s for.
Next, find your fillers. Make sure that what you buy will fit inside your basket. You want the basket to look like it’s overflowing. Great fillers are small plants, disposable cameras, a book or a bottle of champagne (again, depending on who it’s for).
Now for the fun part – decorating! Start arranging your items into the basket. Make sure to put the bigger/taller items in the back and the smaller items in the front. You can use easter grass or any other “stuffing” to prop things up or fill in the holes if you need to. Now tie on a bow and Don’t Forget The Card!!
