Who doesn’t love a good gift basket? Gift baskets are a fantastic way to celebrate special occasions but buying them can cost a small fortune. Never fear though you can make a gift basket yourself that is just as amazing (and in most cases even more amazing) than the ones you can order online!
Don’t get me wrong the gift baskets you can buy with premium meats, cheeses, and even wine are very nice gifts. I will never say a nasty thing about anyone who has ever sent me a gift basket. I love sampling all the new flavors I might not have tried otherwise. In some cases I’ve even found a wine brand that I am now in LOVE with (I’m looking at you La Creme).
There are times though when you want to have a gift that is a lot more personal. An occasion that the gift basket companies have overlooked. Like when I wanted to send a gift basket to an author friend of mine who received her first rejection or the one I want to create today that is furniture painting themed.
That’s when you have no choice but to DIY.
Let’s make a gift basket!
