Gift baskets are a great idea when you are looking for a gift for someone special. In the past, gift baskets were just filled with food items. However, you can now buy gift baskets that have a variety of items in them, and these baskets come in all sizes. Here are a few of the best ideas for themed gift baskets that you can use for just about everyone.
1. The New Mom or Busy Mom Gift Baskets
Moms need a lot of items to keep up with their children. Busy moms and new moms also need similar items. A great base for this gift basket is a tote bag, which is filled with items that they need like hand or body lotion, coffee or tea, snacks, and something just for ‘Mom’.
2. Baby Shower Basket
This is another great option for new moms. You can easily buy many items that a new mom would need and place them in a basket or diaper bag. There are a lot of items that a new mom is going to need at least 2 of, so even if you end up giving a new mom the same items as someone else does, you know that will be used anyway. Remember to make sure to buy a baby shower basket that has been inspected by someone with their PALS certification online. This will assure that the materials used in the production of the basket is safe for children.
3. Art and Craft Supplies
We all know a person that is really into arts and crafts. Many of these people love getting new craft supplies because crafting is an expensive hobby. This is a great option for kids and teens because they are going to use the items both at home and at school. These gift baskets can also make great gifts for adults. You can make this type of basket yourself, but you may be surprised at how much crafting supplies really cost, so you may want to buy one at a craft store instead.
4. Coffee or Tea Gift Baskets
This is a great option for teachers and co-workers. It breaks away from the traditional body lotions and soaps that many people receive in holiday gift baskets. These baskets can be found at many coffee shops. Most times, they come with a bag of coffee or box of tea, a mug, and maybe some snacks. It is also very easy to make your own hot drink gift basket if you cannot find one in store.
5. Treat Gift Basket
There are times that just giving snacks and treats is the best option. These gift baskets are easy to find and easy to make. If you know what the person likes, you can customize the gift basket to have those items included. There are also sample gift baskets that have a mixture of treats in them.
Camping is a lot of fun, especially when you receive a gift basket full of S’mores supplies, soda, and roasting sticks. Some camping gift baskets will also come with fire starting supplies, bug spray, and even local hiking guides.
Gift baskets are a great gift when you want to give someone a present that is unique. There is a large variety of gift baskets available for you to pick from. You can also make your own gift baskets if you have the time.
