If you are like most people, you lead a hectic life as you try to balance family, work, and social life. When special events pop up, rather than add an extra task to your already crazy schedule, why not take a breath, grab your phone and take the pressure off yourself by ordering a gift basket! You can still show the important people in your life that you appreciate them, are thinking of them, or love them – but you don’t have to gather the items yourself.
One of the most difficult gifts to give is the sympathy gift. Whether you are part of the family or just a close friend, you know there is a deep sense of loss associated with the event. Don’t make another casserole they won’t get around to eating, send a gift basket filled with plants, special tokens, or usable items.
When a friend, relative, or employee has gone above and beyond what you expect of them, why not send a basket filled with corporate cookies Atlanta, a spa-themed basked or a bundle of office supplies. Letting someone know how much you appreciate their hard work or the moments they helped you can go a long way in strengthening the relationship.
House Warming Gifts
Making sure you let someone know you remember their special event can be difficult when you have no idea what to bring to the house warming party as a gift. Take the worry out of the situation by finding a themed basket of cookies, fruits, deli items, or holiday treats. You can even find crackers, cheese, and wine combination basket that may become the hit of the party!
You don’t have to have a special occasion to send a gift basket. They can be great presents at any time of the year to anyone you know. Let people know you are thinking of them with a thoughtful basket of amazing items they will enjoy sorting through.
The idea with gift baskets is they don’t have to be super-expensive, but just creative and fun themed ideas you can put together for anyone on your list. It’s not about buying lavish items—it’s about thinking up things that are fun and personal.
I’m definitely not above reusing items or adding gently-used items to a gift basket. After all, you might have a stack of books someone would love to read, combined with some tea, chocolate, and a handmade bookmark, and you’d have a book lover’s gift basket. Or, if you have beauty products you haven’t used (sample sizes work great in baskets), they can also go right in!
Food is another great gift basket item. Combine a few cookie-cutters, a cake mix, and a recipe for simple cookies from a mix and you have a great cookie gift basket. Use pasta, spaghetti sauce, a bottle of wine, and a jar of olives and put it together with a baguette for a yummy Italian basket. It’s all in the presentation, personalization, and little touches.
Think of creative ways to package your gift “baskets.” (Hint: it doesn’t need to be a basket.) Try making the container part of the gift. For example, combine ingredients in a mixing bowl; put seeds and gloves together for your favorite gardener in a terracotta pot; or put your movie-themed basket in a cute paper popcorn bucket!
