Getting a gift basket is exciting because it gives a feeling of abundance. A gift basket full of wonderful goodies can be consumed or used as the recipient wants. Receiving one as a gift from someone we know and care about makes us feel like a king or queen - or at least a spoiled guest house guest!
If you have ever given a basket as a gift before, you have probably noticed the profound effect this can have on the recipients. Now you can consider making your own while in the comfort of your home and using your own materials.
To get you started on this exciting journey, here are five ideas and tips on the art of making gift baskets:
1. Keep the right material at hand for all occasions:
Once you have made your first basket, you may very well be connected. Soon, this can be your gift of choice for all occasions. In order to make the whole experience as economical as possible, it is wise to collect appropriate materials and tools that are on hand for each time the basket manufacturing request arises.
Of course, as a minimum, you have to make baskets yourself (or basket-like items such as trays or attractive gift boxes). You will also have shredded paper, excelsior (ie shredded natural wood) or other attractive fillers. Bonus items include small decorative bands and cellophane bags or cellophane wrapping materials. Of course, make sure you have a good pair of scissors, as well as simple and double-sided clear tape.
2. To (add) food or not (add) food - that is the question:
When preparing a new creation for a friend, loved one or acquaintance, an important decision you need to make is whether the basket will be food-themed. The reason why this is an important consideration is that food products can be perishable depending on how they are packaged. Because people's food preferences and diets can be so special, by giving food, you risk not being able to enjoy your gift as you hope. On the other hand, a good food basket can be a masterful gift choice. So choose wisely!
3. Choosing the right theme is more than half the battle:
Each basket you create should have a specific theme. Of course, how you choose the theme depends in part on the recipient's likes and interests. But it will also be determined by your own creativity. Buy small gifts, goodies, toys etc. for your basket that are in accordance with a theme.
4. Your basket should give an impression of abundance:
When you assemble your basket and start filling it with goodies, make sure you use your filling materials in an expert manner. The goal is that no matter how many gifts and goodies your container holds, the container should look as if it is practically floating over. This is the secret to creating the coveted sense of abundance that well-designed baskets exude.
5. The small details are what make these gifts so good:
One final tip: make sure you focus on the little things. Of course, the theme and the gifts themselves must please and delight the senses. But be sure to add some details like bands, accents and other cheap goodies around the whole event. These small details make a good basket a big one.
