4 Tips to Make any Gift Basket Unique
Remember the joy of being a kid and waking up to a beautiful basket? Maybe it was from the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, or for your birthday.
Filled with all sorts of fun toys, candy, and more, there was something so exciting about seeing what was in your unique basket.
Even as adults, baskets are still pretty common to give as gifts! Do you still have some of that childlike excitement as you see what is inside? We know we still do!
Part of the joy of opening one is when there are specific items inside that are totally personalized to you.
If you aren’t sure how to best personalize the items in your basket, we’ve compiled our 5 best tips on how to easily personalize any basket gift - whether it is for a child, teenager, or adult.
1. Add a name tag
If you don’t feel like you have the time to put together your own basket, that is okay! Especially if you are in need of several, it can take a lot of time to entirely create a basket.
Or, if you aren’t the craftiest of people, don’t feel pressured to create an entire basket - just add a nice personal touch to transform it!
We love the idea of creating custom name tags and adding them right on top of the basket.
This is a great idea that will work for any option - whether you are shopping for your child, your boss, or anyone in between.
You can either write out their name on your own or if penmanship isn’t your specialty, consider having it printed (or enlisting the help of someone who loves calligraphy!
2. Think beyond the basket
Most people think of actual baskets when they think of gift ones, and with good reason.
Instead, a really great way to transform the gift into one that is super personal is to put all the presents into something useful and specific either to the theme of the basket or specific to the person receiving it.
For example, putting together a basket for a child? Why not put the gifts in a backpack that they can use afterward?
Shopping for a coffee lover or wine lover? Place the gifts in a wine cooler bag that they can take on their next trip or perhaps create an awesome coffee basket idea.
Getting something for a garden lover? Place the gifts in a pot that they can then use to plant flowers.
3. Think of a theme based on their interests
The theme should be based on the person receiving the gift - what do they like?
Think of something fairly specific, and use that idea to come up with good gifts that will keep on giving!
That could be drawing, cooking, wine, a certain cartoon character, football, books, or beauty products - and that is just to name a few!
Once you have a theme in mind it becomes a lot easier to pick out items. Keeping to the same theme ensures the gift feels cohesive.
4. Deliver it in person
Finally, another tip to consider is to deliver your basket in person. Whether you have personalized the gift basket itself or not, it instantly feels more personal if you take the time to deliver it in person.
While we understand this isn’t always feasible if you are shopping for someone out of state, it is an option if you are shopping for someone who lives close to you.
If you are able to take the time, do it.
