Delightfuldeliveries.com is another online resource for cute baby gifts.
- Anniversary Gift Baskets
Greatarrivals.com has a variety of anniversary gift baskets for all tastes and pocketbooks. Most are food baskets, but if your recipient is a wine lover, there are many baskets available featuring wine and other accompaniments. GourmetGiftBaskets.com features many anniversary-oriented gift baskets, too.
You can find or create a gift basket for virtually any occasion. While most of the above web sites feature food gift baskets, using your creativity, you can come up with other suitable gift baskets to fit the needs of the person you're giving the gift to. In the section below we'll give you some ideas on how to create your own. If you you will be delivering your gift basket in person and are even the tiniest bit creative, you may enjoy putting together your own gift basket.
Make Your Own Gift Basket
If you are a do-it-yourself type person and enjoy creating your own gifts, making a gift basket for any occasion will be fun for you, your gift recipient, and could possibly save you a little money. Other than the baby gifts, you may have noticed that most of the online gift baskets were food-related. When you create your own, you can give a gift that's perfectly matched for that person, rather than a generic gift that could work for most anyone. If your recipient has crafting interests, creating a basket to reflect her particular craft interest is easily accomplished. Here are some ideas for making your own gift baskets.
Compile Your Gifts
My recommendation is to purchase the gifts that will be included in your gift basket first, before you buy the basket. This will give you a better idea of the size of basket to buy.
Buy The Basket, Wrapping Paper, Ribbons, Etc.
After purchasing the gifts that will go into the basket, you can buy the basket and any wrapping paper, trims, ribbons, tissue paper, and so forth. Baskets are available at your local craft stores such as Michael's, Craft Warehouse, Hobby Lobby, Joann Fabrics, or Target and Walmart, among others. You can get the wrapping paper and ribbon at one of these sources as well.
If you need ideas on how to embellish your basket, arrange the contents, trim and/or wrap it, you should be able to find ideas at About.com. Follow the trail from "Housewares/Appliances> Gift Ideas> Gift Baskets & Ideas for instructions on making an attractive an creative gift basket. Another source to try is essortment.com for ideas on the baskets themselves and what to put in them. Who knows? You might enjoy this so much you'll want to start your own business!
