Holiday Gift Basket Ideas
If you are looking for a
personalized gift that will meet the interests of each and every gift
recipient, try making them a gift basket. Be sure to relate the
basket to the theme. For example fill a football helmet with fun
items for a football fan; Fill a popcorn bowl for the movie maniac
that you know; Use a bucket as the basket for the automotive enthusiast
in your life. The point is to be creative with the basket that you
use and the items that you fill it with.
Be sure to use some
filler paper in the bottom of you basket to take up some space.
Also you can wrap items in cellophane, tie with ribbons or add a bow to
give it a distinctive look.
