15 Unique Gift Basket Ideas

Posted on Dec 1 2016 - 4:52pm by Susan Bewley

How many of you struggle to find the perfect gift for someone who has everything? Sometimes it just feels like a challenge getting gifts for close friends, especially during the holidays or as a nice thank you for helping out. Maybe I’m silly but gift cards just don’t seem very personal. Sure, they can get whatever they want but usually it isn’t something special that they can enjoy at home while relaxing or doing their favorite hobby. For this reason, one of my most favorite gifts to get friends and family are gift baskets, especially ones that I can put together myself!

One of the biggest issues I have with gift baskets though is figuring out what to put inside or how to arrange the basket itself to look as nice as possible. Knowing that some of you have the same problem as me, I couldn’t wait to share with you this cool list of gift basket ideas. These ideas are some of the cutest, most unique gift baskets that can be used for just about any situation. Best of all, they are allow you to give that unique touch that makes it personal.

    I think this is such a great idea. I am always wanting to have some presents ready for giving out when the need presents itself. This would be perfect. Putting a basket together. Then I could do themes like “for the cook”, “for the wine enthusiast, etc…

    I love ideas like this. Our ladies group at church does a fundraiser with a silent auction of gift baskets. I’m always looking for new ideas for baskets.

    Gift baskets are so fun. I would much rather put one together as a gift vs buying one pre-made. They tend to be expensive. Thanks for these great themes/ideas.
