Create Your Own Gift Basket With Lots of Great Ideas

How to create your own gift basket. Do you want to use an old basket for a gift basket and it needs a new look? Well, there's lots of great ideas how to decorate a gift basket. Create and decorate a basket into the best ever gift basket your family and friends will love.



I have basket ideas for baby gift baskets, holiday gift baskets, Christmas gift baskets and so much more.

Have you ever noticed how people react when you give them a gift that’s nicely wrapped? "Wow! that's beautiful!" Well, the same goes for gift baskets. If you create your own gift basket you can decorate it beautifully as you would any other gift; after all, it is a gift.

No matter what you put inside, big gifts or small, expensive gifts or inexpensive, if it’s not decorated nicely with cellophane, ribbons or other things, the over all look will be ruined. Ladies, it’s like your hair: if you have nice clothes and a bad hair day, the over all look is ruined. Isn't that right, ladies?

Some baskets are all ready decorated, that's great because you have less work to do, just cover that basket with cellophane and a bow and you're done.

If you want to make a gift basket with your own personal details on it, go ahead, create and decorate your own gift basket, because the ideas are endless of what you can do.  And remember, create your own gift basket and it will be like no other.

It does not have to be perfect, that's the beauty of making your own, but the more gift baskets you make, the better you will become. You can spend as much or as little time and money as you like making and decorating your gift basket.

Decorating your gift basket brings the gifts and basket together. There are no rules or limits how to decorate a gift basket. You do not have to be artistic, just use your imagination and you will create beautiful gift baskets every time. Every basket you create will be unique, one of a kind!

By using different colored cellophanes or cellophanes with prints you can create your own gift basket, exciting and funky ones. Great for all kinds of occasions. 



Below are a Few More Ideas How to Create and Decorate a Gift Basket



  1.  Beads glued or sewn to the side of the basket.
  2. You can weave ribbon through a basket.
  3. Tinsel glued to the side or the handle.
  4. Shells glued to the side.
  5. Silk flowers pushed in through the basket. 
  6. Ribbons wrapped around the handle.
  7. Ribbon tied to the handle.
  8. Tie bows to the handle.
  9.  Bows tied around top of cellophane.
  10. Small bows glued to the side of basket.
  11. Spray paint the basket. 
  12. Use different colored cellophane.



    If you are a sewing or craft person I am sure you have lots of leftover trims, lace, ribbon, fabric......... you can use.

    If you are not a sewing or craft person, don't panic. Take a trip to the big supermarkets, craft stores or a sewing store. They have a good selection and because you will not need much, it will not cost much. Look in the bargain section for fabric.

Some baskets already come decorated like the ones below, how easy can it get?

A basket can have things glued to the sides like this basket. This one would be a great baby gift basket. If it's for a boy, just change the color of the bear.
This basket would not need any decorating because it is already a nice color and a little bit sparkly. Ideal for a teenage girl or a younger girl.

Line a basket with two tea towels then fill the basket with small fabric gift bags. Fill these with an assortment of dried fruit and nuts. Each fabric gift bag has it's own gift tag.
A basket lined with a linen napkin. I think this gift basket would be great filled with home baked goodies like cup cakes, cookies, home-made bread buns.....or even home-made jams. Great as gifts.
