Sometimes people receive the same kinds of birthday gifts all the time. Year after year, it’s always the same things – clothes, bags, accessories, books, perfume, etc. Usually it is the same. You can change the trend this year and give something that’s out of the ordinary. Why not give a birthday gift basket.
Creating Your Special Gift Basket
Here’s how to make a birthday gift basket that’s truly unique and special. First, find the basic basket – one with a unique shape and appearance – for example, heart-shaped, or made of an unusual material like twisted raffia. Second, perhaps you could paint the basket with the birthday person’s favorite color. The next part of the process is to put a cloth or soft paper lining on the inside of the basket. Place a small round birthday cake in a plastic container (without the cover) and set it at the center of the basket. Arrange colored decorations, like confetti, paper flowers, or party blowers around the container.
Carefully place your gift beside the cake. Wrap the gift in decorated paper and tie with a fancy ribbon. Your gift must be small enough to fit inside the basket but not too small as to be covered by the decorations in the basket. Attach a birthday card or place a card and personal note inside the basket.
Now for the finishing touch, the final gift wrappings. Place the basket on a large sheet of colored cellophane paper. Bring up the corners of the cellophane paper and bunch them together at the top. Tie the ends of wrapper with a large bow. Tie two or three balloons to the basket. For the final decorative touch, you can tie curled paper or streamers around the cellophane wrapper.
The fun in giving this birthday gift basket is no one expects it and no one can tell what’s inside the basket. Personalized gift baskets are extra special gifts. You can also put into it what you want in terms of your design preferences, as well as the kind of gift you want. A birthday gift basket is always an exciting one to receive. After opening the gift and eating the cake there is still the basket to remember you.
