Gift Basket Ideas for Christmas

Creating a gift basket is not difficult, however it takes a little planning. I’ve put together my best tips on how to make a gift basket along with my favorite products. 

There are more gift basket ideas below for men, women and for the food lover in your life. 

How to Make a Gift Basket

  1. First you need a basket, any size or shape will work. You can even think outside the box a little and use something unusual. The main thing to keep in mind is – the larger the container, the more you will need to fill it.
  2. Add filler paper, if the basket you are using is large, add newspaper or packing paper to fill the bottom. Then add shredded paper on top. Remember the paper will get pushed down when you add the items, so add more than you think you will need.
  3. Begin by adding the largest item first, and taller items in the back. 
  4. Then add the middle size items, and finish up with the smaller items. 
  5. And add small pieces of filler paper to fill in any empty spots.

Here are some ideas for supplies you will need to create an epic gift basket.
