wedding-day-itinerary-2If you know somebody that just got married, it can be an exciting and a scary time for that new couple. Although they are undoubtedly very much in love right now, staggering divorce rates can put a damper on even the most enthusiast love bugs. So if you’re looking for a special gift that will remind those newlyweds what love and romance are all about, look into wedding gift baskets that will focus on the future.

While chocolates and treats are nice now, a far more meaningful custom gift baskets would be a basket full of the makings for a time capsule. The young couple can fill it with pictures of their wedding day, and they can also write letters to each other. This way, when the time capsule is opened far in the future-perhaps on a 25th or even 50th wedding anniversary-the couple can be reminded of just how much they were (and still are) in love.

Valentine’s Day Gift Idea

In the past my Valentine’s Day gifts to my wife have been pretty pedestrian. I usually go for red roses, chocolate, and jewelry. Though my wife always says how much she enjoys the gifts, I can tell that a bit more originality would go a long way. This year for Valentine’s Day I will be giving her a custom gift basket.

The custom gift basket I put together for my wife has all of her favorite bath items in her favorite scents. The basket includes Shea butter and goat milk soap, body spray, and lip balms. I’ve also included the 3-in-1 body wash, shampoo, and bubble bath she loves so much. My daughter is going to help me wrap the gift basket and I’ll attach a heart-felt, hand-written Valentine’s Day card. I just know this custom gift basket is going to blow my wife away… which worries me since I have no idea what I’ll do next year!

No More Gift Cards

gift_basketAfter the holiday season, businesses evaluate what products were the best sellers so they can tailor their stock for the next holiday season. I read recently, that gift cards dropped significantly in popularity this past Christmas. Really, it’s no surprise. Gift cards tell a person that you either waited until the last minute to buy a gift or didn’t care enough to think about what they might like to receive.

I’m not knocking gift cards entirely; they’re nice to have on hand for those surprise guests that tend to come out of the woodwork just in time for gift giving. A gift that is custom made is the epitome of thoughtfulness that really makes a person feel loved. This past Christmas I gave my nieces custom gift baskets. I filled each basket with little samplers of beauty products, hair ties, books, and treats according to each girls’ tastes. They were extremely happy with their gifts and have already sent me the most gracious hand-written thank you cards.

Making Your Own Gift Basket

purpGift baskets are a delightful way to surprise a family member or friend on any occasion, and also simple to make by yourself. To get started with your homemade gift basket, choose a theme. For the sake of this example, let’s say we’re making a fall gift basket. Fall gift baskets often contain things like candies, autumn coffee blends, pumpkins and gourds, fine wines, cheese, and kettle corn. You can put in pretty much anything that falls under an autumn or thanksgiving theme; the choice is yours.

Once you have your items together, you will want to arrange them in a manner in which all the items are visible from the front of the basket.  Put taller, heavier items in first, then display the other items against them or in front of them.  You can stuff the basket with straw, or silk leaves to make it look more authentic, and act as a buffer in between the items.  Viola~!  You have a beautiful fall basket all made at home.

Give Gifts in Natural Baskets

spaWe often give gifts to someone on a special occasion or just simply a token for something a person has done that we truly appreciate. Sometimes we run out of ideas on what to give especially when we do not know the person very well. Nowadays, we don’t just use wrappers.  In fact, we avoid using too much paper. We use containers such as boxes and baskets exposing the gift itself and putting some frills to make it pleasing to the eyes.  Examples of these are fruit baskets and flowers in baskets or vases. Nice gifts can come in natural gift baskets.
Natural gift baskets means having items usually organic and putting them in a nice basket. Spa gifts baskets will be brimming with soap, lotion, bath salts or even shampoo.  Food stuff can also be nice to put in a gourmet basket such us coffee, tea, cookies and other gourmet products. It is very safe to give out anything organic, as we are sure that people will really use and consume them. They are very healthy to the body and so with the environment.

Gift Baskets: Always Welcome

gift-basketThere is no bad time to send or receive a gift basket. People love to send them, and I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love to receive one. Why? Well, gift baskets fit everyone, for one thing, which means they never have to be returned to the store. They are a great deal of fun to receive, because they contain so many little goodies that are fun to share-there is always something for everyone. Because of this, they are one of those rare group gifts that are appropriate for a business or a family. Treats are welcome any time of the year. Even the most jaded food lover will get a twinkle when they see the basket of goodies appear, no matter when it shows up on their doorstep.

The only downside to gift baskets is the astronomical markup on all of the contents. You can easily remedy this problem by purchasing an empty basket and purchasing your own products to create completely personalized gift baskets.
