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.
