Everyone needs a good gift basket regardless of the occasion. Holiday, birthday, a gift basket just because, something with all scents, you name it. Gift baskets are a great way to give a combination of items, small or big, cheap or expensive, and have a little bit of everything!
Gift Basket Ideas
Often times when I don’t know what to give someone as a gift, gift baskets are a perfect solution. Thinking of all the things a friend, spouse or family member would like and assorting them together in a cute way can be the best gifts. You can get creative with it and have a theme or focus on a specific holiday.
Every Easter is my kind of gift basket (at least until I was too adult for one). My mom would FILL baskets for both my brother and I, past the rim. Yeah, It was never just a packet of marshmallow chicks or some Easter jelly beans. She would include, Nike shorts, slippers, hair stuff, some gift cards, it was basically a mid-year Christmas. Every Easter I couldn’t wait to find my basket because I just knew there would be some real goodies in there. Maybe the fact that one day we wouldn’t be getting them anymore, my mom just went crazy with it. It was also fun acting surprised because there were times I had talked about wanting certain items and then I found them in my basket. Last Christmas I also received a gift basket from my mom and that was one of my favorite gifts by far. It was so much fun to go through, a combination of self-love, scents, soaps, and pretty things. She did well. It’s exciting opening gift baskets like that because you don’t know what will be in them and they’re just a bunch of random things that say you!
