A gift basket is an idea if you don’t know what to get for someone or if the person has what they need and doesn’t have anything specific on a wish list. Food gift baskets are ideal for all ages and for both genders as you can mix and match the items that are in the basket. You could design a basket with a theme, such as a dinner that the person likes or items that are used for breakfast. Try to find a basket that will match the theme, adding a few small gifts as well, such as a mug or baking supplies.
A breakfast basket is often the easiest to make. You can include almost anything that would be enjoyed at the beginning of the day. Muffin mixes, pancake mixes and oatmeal are examples of what you can include that most people enjoy. You could also add a few types of coffee or tea as well as a mug or two. Don’t include items that need to be refrigerated or fresh fruits as these will likely get warm before the basket is delivered.
Someone who likes to cook would enjoy a basket that is made with spices and condiments. You could include a few tools for cooking, such as a whisk or measuring cups. The items that you add should be those that the cook would use to season or add flavors to foods instead of the ordinary salt and pepper.
Watching a movie is a favorite thing to do by many people. Create a basket that contains food items that can be enjoyed while watching a movie and even a movie or two that the person would enjoy. Add popcorn, a few soda bottles, candy boxes and small bags of chips to give a variety while enjoying the film. An idea for the basket would be to put everything in a large popcorn container. The one with a sweet tooth would enjoy a basket that is made with a variety of cakes, cookies and candies. You could also add a baking pan or cupcake pan so that the person can make their own sweet creations.
