Food Gift Baskets

How to come up with Unique Food Gift baskets

There’s one thing about food-you can’t go wrong with it. Whoever you want to give a gift to, whatever the occasion, and wherever you are-food gift baskets are the easiest and safest things to get. Still, you want to be unique when you put together your food gift baskets. Here are some easy steps to help you effortlessly get together that food basket and make that special someone happy.

1. Choose a basket or container to use. This will greatly depend on the occasion and recipient. If you intend to give  the food gift basket as a Christmas gift, then use appropriate containers. You can also use a large sauce pan or pot to make it more original. The theme of  your basket should start here.

2. Get together the food. Again, remember the person you are giving. There are different themes that you can base your choice of food.

 Assemble your food gift basket.

The idea here is to make it appear overflowing so make use of craft grass or colored paper to stuff at the bottom of your basket. Carefully place the food items in your basket and arrange them attractively. You can attach food items to each other using double sided tape to make sure it keeps its form and doesn’t shift out of place.

Now you can wrap your food gift basket. You can tie a nice ribbon around it and make a nice card and stick it on the side of your basket and viola! It’s ready to be delivered.

There are countless combinations that you can come up with when it comes to arranging and finding the right variety of food to put in your food gift basket.
