Tips for Nailing the Art of Gift Basket

Gift baskets are becoming more popular gift ideas nowadays. Gift basket creation is a more personalized way of expressing your love and appreciation to a particular person, and nothing feels more fabulous than seeing her happy accepting and seeing your efforts to make her happy. It can be challenging to do, but all of the sacrifices, time, and energy in nailing it will always be worth it.

 

Creating a personalized gift basket doesn't mean you will buy a basket and put all stuff inside. Here is always magic in every detail in this art-from planning up to giving the gift basket to your loved one. While gift basket delivery online can save you time and energy, it is always more personal if we do it ourselves. The following are some excellent tips that will help you build a fantastic gift basket for your amazing recipient. 

 

Plan

 

Planning is one word, yet a huge one. The Internet world offers lots of designs and themes for your gift basket, yet it will make distracted and torn, which is a better idea. Also, the thrift shops and design stores around your area have many tools and designs you can consider. So before exploring the Internet or visiting thrift stores, create a mental picture of what your personalized basket will look like. If you do not know how to start, think about your receiver and list down things about her-likes, interests, profession, among others. Remind yourself of the occasion or why giving a special gift.

 

Select the basket

 

Customized gift baskets do not mean you can settle yourself in a traditional basket. There are lots of containers you can use to make your gift basket unique. You can use flower pots, casseroles, kitchen bowls, and woven baskets, as the container for the goodies. Do not forget to complement it to your desired theme or the occasion. Also, consider the size and weight of the items and the container's width to ensure that you can put all the goodies well.

 

Purchase a variety of goodies in sizes and textures

 

Use your imagination to choose the items for your gift basket. You can look for assorted items, and you can also consider putting small pieces to bring twists to your gift basket. However, if you are planning to put foods to the gift basket, choose the food item with a more extended expiration date and make sure it is still in good condition. Never neglect to check the quality of the goodies before purchasing it.

 

Arrange the items in the gift basket

 

This step is an enjoyable part of creating your gift basket. But as mentioned, do not just put your items there. Consider these tips in arranging your goodies:

 

  • If the container is shallow, put bubble wraps, tissue papers, or crumpled papers at the bottom.
  • If the container is deeper, put boxes to build up the height. 
  • Put the taller items at the back while the smaller ones at the front portions of the container.
  • Secure the items by using glue dots, skewers, and even straws.

 

To wrap or unwrap?

 

You can choose if you prefer to wrap your unique gift baskets or not. But if you will do, use colorful cellophane in wrapping and put a lovely bow. If you tie the cellophane, you can use a satin ribbon or a pipe cleaner and tug the cellophane well. Tulle is another excellent option in wrapping the gift basket and securing the items inside.
