When I give gifts, I love to have a theme or idea that ties it all together. One of the easiest and sometimes most clever ways to do this is to create a themed gift basket. It is easy to do and can be as simple or extravagant as you are wanting to go. Below is a list of different themes and some ideas of what to include in each basket.
-A movie, either the newest release on DVD or Blu Ray or a family favorite
-Movie Theater sized boxes of candy
-A family board game
This is the perfect gift for your spouse or for a couple that you love. Just think of what they like to do and what would make a perfect night out on the town!
-Tickets to a local concert, show, sporting event, or movie
-A restaurant gift card
-A bottle of wine
Give this to the chef or baker in your life. Instead of using a basket, you could place all of the items in a large mixing bowl. For more ideas you can see our Kitchen Lover’s Gift Guide and also check out our favorite Kitchen Gadgets.
-A few kitchen gadgets
-A few complementary spices
-Muffin tins or Cookie sheets
Do you have a kid on your gift list this year? This gift idea is a simple way to put a smile on their face! First, you need to find out what they love… Are they into a character such as Elmo? Or do they like Barbie or Cars? Then, go out and find a coloring book, story book, and small toy of that character or theme. Paired with a box of crayons it makes a perfect gift that will get plenty of use. You can also get more inspiration from our Kids Gift Guide.
FIT AND ACTIVE
This gift basket is great for the active person in your life or even the friend or family member that you know wants to become a more active person. Think of all of the little things that make healthy living easier. If you want to go all out, get this person a new pair of running shoes or a gym membership!
