People appreciate theme gift baskets and gifts. They show the honoree that real time and thought went into the present, and all the items will be useful. Themed baskets are also great for a group or team of people to give. Have fun putting your next special gift together for that special someone. Many graduates go on a summer trip to commemorate their success. Parents often pay for the accommodations, but so much more goes into preparing for a trip. Graduates headed to a beach or resort would use a beach bad filled with supplies—beach towel, lotions, a good book, great music. Or, try a beach cooler filled with drinks and snacks ready to ice down. Here’s a different spin on the money tree.
College Students are always in the need of a meal since classes and work schedules don’t always jive. For the high school graduate on their way to college, stuff a waste paper basket with dorm needs. Toiletry supplies like toothpaste, washcloths, towel, soap, work well. Or, fill a storage tub with bedding like sheets, blanket, pillows, and pillowcases.
New Baby Gifts - Think good night’s sleep as you shop for this one. Try filling the basket with a bedtime story, bedtime music, a special blanket, a soft stuffed animal, and even some soothing bedtime lotion. Fill a basket to the brim with assorted jars of baby food and juices. Add a couple of feeding bowls, spoons, and bibs.
New Mom Gifts - Find a variety of pampering gifts for the new mom like a great magazine or book, a bath pillow, new slippers, lotions, healthy snacks, etc. Tuck in all the needed supplies for each of the common baby ailments. A soft, soothing blanket, a cool summer top, diaper rash cream, teething gel, pain reliever, oral electrolyte juice, lotion and snuggle toy.
Romantic Gift Baskets - Send chocolate kisses, two wine glasses and two candlesticks. Fill in with scented candles, a bottle of sparkling cider, music cd for romance and chocolates.
Weddings, babies, graduations, birthdays, holidays—it’s enough to tax the brain of even the most creative gift giver.
