    Keepsake Gift Baskets

    November 10th, 2010

    In recent years gift baskets have become a national mania in the USA. Gift basket home-based small businesses are becoming more and more popular and gaining popularity by the minute. In this crowded environment everyone tries to gain popularity by coming up with the most original (not to say weird) ideas for gift baskets and gift basket designs.

    One of the latest innovations in the gift basket business is to pay attention not only to the contents of the gift basket but also to the basket itself. Instead of using the traditional straw basket, many of the gift basket manufacturers have begun to employ more original materials and container types to hold the gourmet items inside the basket.

    Some examples of this are golf-themed gift baskets presented in a golf cart, picnic gift baskets contained in a thermal bag which enables carrying the basket as is to an outdoors event without worrying about the state of dairy and meat products in the basket, sports themed gift baskets with a real basketball/baseball as the basket and the list goes on.

    These unique baskets add more than just a humoristic twist to the gift. One of the problems with gift baskets and consumable gifts in general is that they are normally used up within a week, leaving no permanent impression in the memories of the gift recipients. Keepsake baskets make the gift basket more than just a temporary feast. The recipients of the gift get to keep a useful item they may use for years to come, reminding them of the occasion for which the gift was given and of the people they got it from.
    In times when many people prefer the do it yourself method to help meet tight budgets, it is not uncommon to see people make their own gift baskets at home. This also adds a more personal touch to the gift. If you are designing a gift basket for a friend or a loved one, consider not only the contents list but also the basket itself when designing your gift. This will allow you more leeway for originality and practicality in your basket theme, and will enable you to create a gift that truly keeps on giving.

    Here are some ideas on how you can enhance the value of your gift basket gift by using an original container: If you are invited to a graduation event and intend to prepare a graduation gift basket, why not prepare a huge graduation cap and place the basket contents in it? Alternatively, if you are buying someone a romantic gift, you can use a hearts decorated wooden box that can be used later to keep items such as letters or anything related to your relationship. A cheese gift basket can be arranged over a cheese cutting board and include items such as a cheese knife. An over-the-hill gift basket can be arranged inside a fake tomb to ad a funny twist to the gift. A children gift basket can be based around a child’s toy such as a toy truck or airplane. The sweets and candies can be stacked inside the toy.

    Wine Gift Baskets

    Wine gift baskets have become extremely popular and are the perfect gift for the wine connoisseur. Wine gift baskets can range from the high end with bottles from the major chateaus of Bordeaux to wine gift baskets containing good but inexpensive California wines. Most wine lovers are eager to try new wines from a variety of countries and wine gift baskets are the perfect gift for the adventurous wine lover.
    For those not familiar with wines, most companies offering wine gift baskets employ wine specialists to guide the gift giver in selecting the right wines. When most people think of wine they also think of cheese. Most available wine gift baskets come with cheeses selected to compliment the wines in the gift basket.

    You could always do a custom wine gift basket as well.

    The advantage when making a custom wine gift basket is that you select and choose the contents unlike a ready made wine gift basket. It is really helpful if you know the person for whom you are setting up the custom wine gift basket so that you are able to choose the style of wine or even a couple of bottles of the wine he or she loves most. Along with the wine you may want to add some premium crackers, wine glasses with a decanter and some fruit.

    Depending upon how much you want to spend, you can add as much as you wish to your custom wine gift basket or make it as simple as possible. You can set a budget for your wine basket, maybe more wine, no extras, whichever, you can spend a lot or a little. So even if your budget is low, a wine gift basket can always look and be special. Being a basket you’ve a possibility to supply several small items, which adds to its elegance and appears more personal.

    Treat your lucky gift recipients to a night of Amore, starting with a romantic dinner for two delivered right to their doorstep. As they lift the lid to this handsome wicker picnic hamper (great for future picnics for two!) they will discover Italian inspired gourmet fixings inside: Vineyard Pasta, Sweet Basil Dipping Herbs, Italian seasoned Bruchetta Crisps, Mediterranean Balsamic Vinegar, Dolcetto Tirimisu filled Cookies, Merlot-Cheddar Cheese Spread, Los Olivos Wine Biscuits and Pimento Stuffed Olives. (This gift does not contain wine). Each basket is carefully hand crafted with attention to detail and includes a personalized gift message from you to convey your heartfelt best wishes.
