Our Favorite Holiday Gift Basket Ideas

December 15, 2016 1 Comment

The Basket Lady LOVES an assemblage of related little treasures that, when combined, aren’t only a present – they’re an experience! Creating your own gift baskets this holiday season? First things first: A multi-functional wicker basket makes a classic, yet contemporary container that the recipient will want to keep long after it’s empty. Choose a style that complements the gift, and a size that accommodates all of the fillers.

For example, you could add café au lait mix, butter croissants, an Eiffel Tower figurine, rose- scented sachets, and a box of macaroons to our Wicker Serving Bowl for an instant passport to Paris that doubles as a dinner table breadbasket! For more gifting inspiration, see our Top 8 gift basket ideas below:

The holiday season is just around the corner, so I’m thinking of giving holiday gift baskets to my friends to keep it classic. I like your idea of a gourmet wicker basket which has a bottle of red and white wine. I think I’ll add some matching aged cheese in it to make it even more special and holiday-ish.
