Shopping for the perfect gift only adds stress to the holiday hysteria. It’s hard enough to balance your budget with someone else’s wish list. But what happens when you don’t have a clue what the person wants? Spare yourself the heartache (and high blood pressure) by throwing together a themed gift basket. Whether the recipient is your best friend or boyfriend’s neighbor doesn’t matter. The look on their face when they discover something new will be absolutely perfect.
You can buy these exact baskets (click the buttons below each one), or you can simply use them as a guideline for what types of products would be worthy of a gift basket. Hopefully, these ideas can help get you started!
Gluten-Free Foodie Gift Basket
The key to this one is finding treats that look – and taste – gourmet or elevated somehow. Packaging has a lot to do with it, but also consider adding hard-to-find foods like gluten-free, chocolate-almond granola. You may even want to throw in a bottle of wine (gluten-free, of course) if you know they’d appreciate that.
Spa Day Gift Basket
Everyone knows that person who never takes time for themselves. They are always putting others first and forget they deserve quality “me” time, too. Give them that opportunity to relax and feel pampered. The great thing about gift baskets like this is you can splurge on high-end items like an essential oil diffuser, or you can keep it simple – and on budget – with soy candles. As long as it soothes the mind and body, it’s worth adding to the basket!
From “all things tea” to “30-minute meals,” there are endless themes to choose from when creating a gift basket. If your recipient is a big coffee drinker, maybe you carry a coffee theme throughout, complete with mugs and a French press. Before you go shopping, spend a couple minutes thinking about what will make your recipient feel special so you have a roadmap to follow. Once that’s settled, t’s all downhill from there!
