The Best Types of Gift Baskets that Work

Gift is not only about the product you are purchasing, it’s price tag, or to what brand it belongs to. Rather, it should show how much you love or care about the person for whom you are buying the gift. While wine and beers, chocolates and flowers could seem to be a little boring, as they have been done to death when it comes to giving gifts, you can give them a little twist and opt for unique gift baskets instead, which pack a punch and offer an attractive blend of 2-3 products, neatly tucked in a decorative basket. These baskets are available in different sizes and shapes and the contents, too, vary widely. In fact, you will surely get to choose something personal and meaningful from the huge options that many online stores offer these days. Here are some of the best gift basket ideas that you can consider –
Gourmet gift baskets – If the person for whom you are buying the gift is a foodie or loves to experiment with his/her beverages and drinks, these customized gift baskets would be the ideal option. Consider something like Berry Caramel Apple gift basket, which is made up of apples, rich golden caramel, Belgian chocolate, decorated with colorful confetti, or some snacks gift baskets that hold a delightful arrangement of different types of snacks, filled with cheese, crackers, almonds, cookies, all of which are placed in a beautifully crafted hand-made bamboo basket. Be it chocolates, fresh and organic fruits, or exotic wines, you can get them all and more when you choose gourmet gift baskets. What’s more, you can even add a personalized message to make the entire giving process a unique, personal touch.  

Holiday gift baskets – Gifts are an integral part of holidays. Be it the Thanksgiving Day, Christmas, or any other holiday, you can up the fun and cheer quotient by selecting some holiday gift baskets. Be it some gift baskets to celebrate the autumn season or the upcoming Christmas, you can get a lot to chose from. For instance, while a California Holiday Gift Basket that packs California red wine along with delicious Brie cheese, California smoked almonds, three cheese sourdough crackers etc would be a great way to celebrate the holidays in style, the Golden Sleigh Ride Gift Basket that packs the goodies in a whole sleigh, and includes chocolate-covered cherries, Ghirardelli hot cocoa mix, a Jacquot truffles, shortbread cookies, Cashew Roca, Walkers peppermint bark Ghirardelli bar, and Ghirardelli chocolate squares is surer to usher in Christmas in style. You may even shop for gift baskets for kids that pack items like hand-decorated crispy rice bars in the shape of kids’ favorite holiday characters like the endearing Santa, the cute snowman or the red nosed reindeer, Rudolph. 

Personalized gift baskets – The best way to show your feelings through gifts is to give it a personal touch. You can select items of your recipient’s preference by browsing the extensive repertoire of online gift stores, and get them all packed in a gift basket, adding a personal note along with it to make the entire giving process somewhat customized. While food aficionados would jump with joy if you send gift baskets packed with truffles, chocolates, cheese, crackers, smoked salmon, biscotti and many more such things, those looking for a bit of pampering to beat the blues would thank you if you send a spa essential gift basket that include all the required things for a relaxing bath like relaxing bubble bath gel, aromatherapy candle, soft bath pillow, a wooden body massager, tea light candles, nylon scrubby etc.

Event special gift baskets – There is a wide variety of these types of gift baskets for occasions like anniversaries, birthdays, birth of a baby, purchasing a new home etc. You may even get a wide variety of corporate gifts like the ones that pack an assortment of freshly baked yummy cookies, arranged beautifully in tin box or bamboo baskets. You can also think about a basket full of candies, dried fruits and spreads. Starting from flowers and wines to gourmet delights and more, you can get them all based on what event you want to celebrate. 

So, take your pick from these gift baskets and you would never go wrong when it comes to gift giving.
