Shrink wrap for baskets is another kind of cellophane that can be used for wrapping homemade gift baskets. It works by applying heat to the cellophane and that's what makes it shrink.
Heat shrink wrap cellophane looks like ordinary transparent cellophane that comes on a roll, but when you touch it, it feels a little bit thicker than the clear gift basket cellophane. It's easy to use and makes the gifts stay in their place.
Below, I have used a fresh fruit gift basket as an example of how to use shrink wrap

heat shrink wrap. It could be a spa gift basket, baby gift basket or a
food hamper. Just change the filler and the items to suit your theme.
