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!
