The idea of giving gifts in baskets is centuries old, gifts delivered in baskets have been around ever since someone figured out how to weave a basket.


The Holiday season is without a doubt the most popular time of the year to give a gift basket. In the Holiday season, many corporations send gift baskets to their valued customers as a way of saying thank you for your business.

 Many companies give their employees gift baskets during the season, or all year long as a way of saying, “great job”.


The Holiday season is a time to bring family and friends together, but sometimes that’s not always possible, as family members or friends move away. Sending a gift basket to a faraway family member or friend is a perfect solution for gift giving.


Gift baskets are a practical gift, as the basket or container can be used after the gifts are consumed. Many Holiday basket containers can be used after there’re empty, by filling them with some sort of festive Holiday d├ęcor and placing it as a centerpiece on a table.


The Holidays are not the only time of the year to give someone a gift basket. The gift basket industry has grown into a multibillion-dollar business a year. Today you can find or make a gift basket for any theme or occasion.


Here are some other popular times to give a gift basket, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Easter, Halloween, New Home, New Baby, Birthday’s. I guess that I could go on and on, but I think you get the idea. As they say, Gift Baskets are for all occasions.


Making your own Gift Baskets:


Making your own gift baskets is fun and easy. For one thing, you can choose the items in the basket to be specific to the person you are giving them to. For example, a coffee or tea basket, a chocolate lovers’ basket, how about a fruit of a cheese basket. Here is a neat idea, A Bakers Basket for someone who loves to bake.


Here is something that many of you may not know. Some years ago, when I was out of work for a while, I started making and selling gift baskets.


No, I didn’t get rich or turn it into a thriving business, but I sure did have fun making and selling gift baskets. I finally had to give it up when I got a new job but I still enjoy making my own gift baskets.


Here is an article that I wrote on my review site. Make a Halloween Gift Basket. It is a gift basket for kids, look and see just how creative you can get with the different ideas for items. The instructions in this article would apply to any gift basket that you want to make.

As I said, making your own gift basket is fun, easy, and creative. So, you can make your own or buy one. Either way gift baskets are a great gift giving idea.

  1. Gift baskets make great gifts because they are so versatile. You can put together related items to fit any holiday or occasion and easy to gather together things that fit the personality and/or the interests of the recipient. As you say, the ideas for gift baskets are endless and they always are appreciated. Thanks, Sam.

  2. I love gift baskets. We make them at our Women’s Guild at church and then auction them off at our annual sausage dinner each fall. Thanks for all your information Sam.

  3. Gift Baskets are always a favorite in this household. For every member you can personalize those baskets with some of their "special" treats and they look so nice once they are all done up! Thanks Sam for all your information to help us along.

  4. I have always loved making, buying, giving and receiving gift baskets! There’s something extra special about a thoughtfully assembled group of themed gift items arranged decoratively in a basket, wrapped with shiny cellophane and tied with a pretty ribbon and, perhaps, a bow. I have made gift baskets with food themes, such as a pasta dinner and a gourmet pancake or waffle breakfast, as well as several spa-themed gift baskets, a candle-lover’s basket and a library-themed basket. Your Halloween gift basket is so creative!

  5. I love giving and receiving gift baskets! Whether it is pre-made or personally made with specific things we know the recipient loves, they are simply fabulous gifts. I really do like being able to order one online and have it shipped right to the door of my loved one. Sure makes giving a nice gift easy.

    1. Oh, and I meant to say, I would love getting a bakers basket :)

  6. Sam I love giving and receiving gift baskets (especially receiving lol) - In our business days, we would bundle up custom made gift baskets for our clients. I made quite a few back in the day. Their such a fun item to receive - every angle of a gift basket is a lovely surprise.

  7. I love gift baskets! It is so lovely to personalise them to the recipients interests or wishes and they always look stylish and beautiful. I love receiving them too especially pampering and gardening ones and I also really do like the baskets themselves!:)
