Make A Gift Basket With These 6 Simple Steps
Healthy Holiday Gifts are a great way to show how much you care about your family and friends. Get a “wow” response and delight that special someone with a gift that’s actually good for them.
Step #1- Decide on your theme. Think about the person you are making this for. What would they enjoy and find useful?
Step #2- Determine what items you will put in it.
Step #3- Select your basket. Make sure you pick a basket that is a perfect size and will hold all of the items you are putting in it. Michaels, Jo-Ann fabric, and The Christmas Tree Shop have an excellent selection of baskets and are usually on sale up to 40%-50% off during the holidays!
Step #4- Choose your wrapping materials. You will need a bag or shrink wrap. I prefer bags. They are much easier! But if you are very crafty….then shrink wrap away! Again, you can find this at the 3 stores mentioned above. They make clear gift basket bags in several different sizes. That is what I used for Oatmeal basket. You can also use other decorative wrapping, like the silver one I used for Home Spa basket. Just look around, these craft stores have everything!
You will also need basket filling and ribbon or bows for decorating. Notice how I used a red and green theme with the oatmeal basket, but silver and purple with the Home Spa basket. You can be as creative and original as you’d like!
Step #5- Assemble the basket. Put the filling in your basket, then add your gifts. Place the larger items in the back. Rearrange them so they look neat and organized.
Step #6- Wrap & Decorate your basket. If using a bag, carefully place the bag over the basket (open side up). Then, tie your bag with ribbon (if not shrink-wrapping) and/or add a bow and a gift tag.
