How to create the perfect Christmas gift basket
Follow these simple steps to create an easy-peasy themed gift basket!
- Decide on a theme-keep scrolling for tons of fun ideas
- Choose a container-see below for some creative alternatives to baskets
- Fill the container with goodies-shop the grocery store, dollar store, Amazon, Etsy, clearance section, and even your own home
- Apply the finishing touches-ribbon, filler, a special note or gift tag
*Tip: be sure to include a variety of small gifts in your Christmas gift basket. For example: something edible, something readable, something wearable, something consumable, and something adorable.
If you want to be really crafty, your gift basket doesn’t even need to include an actual basket!
