a-new-california-food-collect-gift-basketJust by exploring different avenues of your imagination, you can come up with many ideas for making the perfect Christmas basket. To begin with, you need to first decide who you are creating the gift basket for. Next you want to get an idea of something that person really likes. A gift basket that is put together with a certain person in mind according to what they like, shows you put forth an effort to picking out the perfect gift. You will find that the baskets are more appreciated if you spend a little time on putting them together.

For example, if you are putting together a gift basket for your thirteen year old niece, and her favorite things are makeup and music, you have many different ways to go. You could start off with picking out her favorite bottle of perfume, and then add several different shades of nail polish. You could then pick out a large bottle of fruity bubble bath, since this is a favorite when it comes to gifts for women. Find out her favorite music artist and finish the basket off with a couple CD’s by her favorite artist.

If you are putting together gift baskets for a large number of family members, or acquaintances, you may want to consider cooking. You could whip up a batch of homemade peanut brittle and wrap pieces individually. Next you can make your famous chocolate brownies. Chocolate chip cookies are another holiday favorite as well as hand decorated sugar cookies. Amish friendship bread can finish the basket off. Wrap your homemade goodies in red and green plastic wrap. Finish off the baskets by adding holiday bows. This way you can kill two birds with one stone. You just make enough goodies to fill several baskets at once.

Should you need a holiday gift basket for an office party, you could start off with a nice bottle of sparkling cider. You could then create a fresh fruit basket by adding several apples and oranges to the basket. Next, add some green and red seedless grapes for color, and to keep with the theme. Finish the basket with a chocolate dipping sauce or add chocolate dipped strawberries.

What about needing a gift basket for a man or male teenager? Most all teenage boys these days have some sort of gaming system that rules the TV after homework is done. You are going to want to find out what type of game system they have and a name of a game they may be interest in. Start you basket with that game. The newest rage with teenage boys after gaming systems is magazines about the games. These magazines contain codes that allow them to find different passageways to the games. Add a gaming magazine to your basket. Next, you can pick out a tee shirt that you think he would like. You can finish the gift basket with his favorite cologne.

These are just a few ideas on putting together the perfect holiday gift basket. You can come up with a million more yourself. Keep in mind that people all like different things. If you design a basket according to the persons likes, you will get an instantaneous smile. This will make the person feel special that you took the time to put together a basket just for them. The holidays are about making people feel special.
