How to Make a Gift Basket at Home

Before we get into some fun ideas for creating your personalized gift baskets, let’s talk about how to make a gift basket look good! First, begin by finding a basket or other reusable container, such as a festive tin, a Christmas stocking, a large box wrapped in Christmas paper, or other items that will complement the theme of your gift. 

Next, arrange the items in the basket in a way that displays each element and prevents smaller items, such as lip gloss or small toys, from falling underneath the larger items. You can use colorful tissue paper or shredded cotton (to imitate snow) to prop up items as needed. 

Finally, add decorative elements such as ornaments, ribbons, a personalized card, or tinsel to make your basket look festive and fun! Tailor it to the age and style of the recipient, and get creative. Now that you are ready to create your custom gift baskets, let’s talk about some gift basket decoration ideas that will make Christmas extra bright this year.
