When most people think of gift baskets they think of the traditional gourmet style gift basket. A gourmet style gift basket is full of things such as nuts, chocolates, tea, sauces and a variety of other things. They are the perfect gift for just about any occasion.
But what if you want to make your gift more personal? What if you want to make it something that actually represents the person you are giving it to? If that’s the case check out the 6 different types of gift baskets below.
Corporate Gift Baskets
If you run a business corporate gift baskets make the perfect gift. Sending flowers to corporate clients as a thank you gift is not very appropriate. You can send them to your clients as a thank you gift or as a Christmas gift. You can even send them as birthday gifts for your favorite clients. Some companies will also use them as a way to recognize employees who have done an outstanding job.
Baby Gift Baskets
When someone is having a baby they will need a lot of different things. With a baby gift basket you will be able to give the new parents everything they need to help welcome their new bundle of joy into the world. Most baby gift baskets will come with soap, blankets, towels, shampoo and baby clothing.
Birthday Gift Baskets
What better way to help someone celebrate their birthday than by gifting them with a gift basket. The great thing about birthday gift baskets is you can make them very personal. If its for a child you can incorporate their favorite toys and books. If its for a woman you can include items such as a gift card to the spa, her favorite cookies or even her favorite movies.
If its for the man in your life you can include tickets to see his favorite rugby team play, a jersey of his favorite team, house shoes and anything else that caters to his personal interests.
Get Well Gift Baskets
Unfortunately people get ill sometimes. And while everyone else will send flowers or balloons, why not do something different and send a gift basket? This type of gift is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. You can include things in the basket that are geared towards helping the recipient feel better.
For example, you can include books and information about healing, tea bags, a mug and much more. You can even put a little card in there with a personal message. If you will be sending the basket to the hospital be sure you have all the correct information.
Sports Gift Baskets
I myself am a huge sports fan. Basketball is without a doubt my favorite sport. Goooooo Celtics!!! If anyone wants to buy me a gift it would have to be a sports gift basket. I would love to get a basket full of Celtics memorabilia, T-shirts, socks, hats and anything else Celtic related.
I am sure the sports lover in your life feels the same way. There is no better gift for someone who loves sports.
Housewarming Gift Baskets
This is one very few people actually think of. When someone moves into a new home you want to get them a housewarming gift. The problem is it can sometimes be difficult to figure out what to get. With a housewarming gift basket you can include a variety of different items they are sure to love.
If you are a real estate agent this is the perfect way to say thank you to a new family who has just bought a home from you.
