Making A Christmas Gift Basket


Gift baskets or giftpacks show the time time and effort you put into making wonderful handmade goodies. Even the plainest of handmade gifts is exquisite when wrapped properly and presented in creative packaging. The sky is the limit to the type of gift basket or gift pack to use to present your gift.

The typical gift basket consists of an outer box (basket, pack) and inner decorations or filler. I prefer baskets with a cover or a bag type basket so that I do not have to cover with cellophane wrap to protect the contents yet I can still embellish the outer covering. To this is added ribbon embellishment, labels, hangtags and even further embellishments like sparkly butterflies, birds, feathers, etc.

Whats inside the gift basket:
Some suggestions from recipes on this website are -
*Gourmand bodycare: Oatmeal body butter, Bathsalts with oatmeal with Cocolate Bean Soap
* Montego Bayrum Soap , Bayrum Essention oil spray, Light Massage Oil with Bayrum
* Romantic Essential Oil Blends for soaps ; use essential oil blends in other products such as matching lotion, bathsalts, spray, potpourri
* Cold Relief Essential Oil Blend for bath teas , Soap and Moisturizing Foot Lotion (Use Cold Relief essential oil blend in the bath tea, soap and lotion)

Labels for the Gift
* Cherub Christmas Soap Wrap and Cherub Christmas Soap Cigarband - both types of wraps in cranberry and moss green
* Gift Hangtags . Two designs are available - a modern single flower design and a classic scroll design. Both are customizable in the name and information fields. Grab graphic corners to resize. These graphics are high resolution files so resizing to a larger size will not degrade the quality of the image.
* Vintage Soap Cigarbands

Sources for unique gift wrapping supplies
Notepolish - Notepolish is a paper boutique with special occasion wrap, labels invitations. My favorites are the sparkly butterfly and bird gift ornaments and the feather ribbons. These are impressive ornaments for special gifts.

Nashville Wraps - These folks carry a large assortment of gift boxes, candy boxes, paper bags, plastic bags, gift wrap, tissue paper, wholesale ribbon and bows and custom printed packaging.

Buhi Imports
Buhi Imports sells natural gift packaging - baskets, sinamay bags, abacca pouches, etc. These bags and pouches are exquisite when filled with handmade gifts, tissue paper and a card.
