This basket can be for a man or woman golf enthusiast. If you play golf with your business partners, a golf gift basket would be an excellent gift to give.
The basket for this could be a thermal bag, as this will keep their drinks cold as they get their holes-in-one around the course.
Inside the bag put things like golf balls, tees, golf gloves, a cap or maybe a golf shirt. Add some snacks in case they get peckish.
This is an excellent time to add your company's logo on any of these items.

Below are two ideas to get you thinking. Happy Holidays!
1. This picnic basket or hamper could have a selection of tinned hams, tinned vegetables, tinned soups, dried pastas, Christmas cake, Christmas pudding, cookies, jams, chutneys, chocolates, pickles, packet of sauce mixes, stuffing or even a medium-sized frozen chicken.
Select the items just mentioned or put together your own selection.

This can be filled with Christmas food such as tinned meats, tinned fish (tuna, crab meat), some pickles, energy bars, cookies, instant coffee, teas, cubes of sugar, dried milk, chocolate, relishes, or mixed nuts, a bottle of wine or some beer, two glasses and a bottle opener.
Add something with your company's logo in the basket.
