There are so many occasions to make a gift basket: Wedding and Baby Showers, Welcome and Congratulations Gifts, Fundraisers and Charity Events…everyone loves a gift basket! Recently, I had the pleasure to assemble a gift basket for a friend of mine who has moved into a new home.
I love putting a nice gift basket together! Picking a theme and really going all out is such a fun shopping experience. Bed Bath & Beyond has everything you need to assemble a very lovely bath basket. To get my friend’s guest bathroom ready for guests, I chose a set of fluffy towels, a bathmat, body scrubber and scented candle.
Go the extra mile – add ribbon, bows and wrap to dress up each individual piece for a truly spectacular presentation.
Arrange the Cello Wrap – I used two pieces crossed in the middle to get the most coverage. You’ll want to have lots of extra wrap hanging over the edges, especially of the items in your gift basket are tall, like the bathmat & scrubber.
Arrange the gift items – placing the tallest in the middle. Stuff gift tissue all around to make sure everything stays in place.
Wrap it up – pull the Cello to the center and secure. I find a twist tie or elastic band works best; you’ll cover it with something prettier in the next step.
Finish it – with a pretty bow and tag! Secure the tag during the middle step of tying the bow for a seamless look.
Love Baskets? We have lots of Cello Wrap to choose from and even a ready to use Clear Cello Basket Bag. Alternatively, use our Giant Gift Sack to keep the contents of your basket a surprise! This oversized bag can fit hard to wrap gifts of all sizes, and is a HUGE time saver when you’re rushing to the party.
I hope my friend loves her housewarming gift basket. I’m already thinking up the next theme…how about a Coffee Bar gift set–with everything you need to start your morning right? Or a Wine Basket…for your evenings? What’s your favorite way to make a gift basket?
