A Guide to Making a Themed Gift Basket

Every year, there are birthdays, anniversaries, and other gift-giving occasions; and every year, you find yourself in the same pickle—wracking your brain to come up with the perfect gift for your loved ones.  

If you’re out of ideas and don’t know what to do this year, always remember: You can never go wrong with a gift basket!

If the quest to put together the perfect gift basket seems scary, we’ve got you covered. All you need to do is follow these six simple steps and you’ll have the perfect gift to give to your special person.

Step 1:  Identify the theme you want to work with.

Start by shortlisting all the themes you can work with. Remember to focus on what the other person likes. It can be a show, a movie/cartoon character, a video game, or any particular pop-culture reference. Once you have the list handy, pick one theme that’s easy to work with.

Step 2: Make a list of all the items you can add to the basket.

Once you’ve decided the theme you want to use for your gift basket, move on to make another list. This time, your list will have all the items that you can collect in that particular theme. You can add things like t-shirts, mugs, hoodies, mobile covers, pop-sockets, backpacks, caps, etc. The rule of thumb should be to think of things that can easily be customized.

Step 3: Make sure the theme remains consistent in all items.

Needless to say, the theme should remain consistent in all the items. However, it’s not as easy as it may sound. You need to be consistent in terms of the animations, the colors, and the font as well. This can be easier to implement if you customize the items yourself as opposed to buying things from pre-existing generic collections.

Step 4:  Arrange them properly.

Once you collect all the items that’ll go in the basket, make sure to arrange them properly. Each item should be visible. Arrange them according to their size so the big items are at the back and not hiding the smaller ones.

Step 5: Work on the packaging.  

It’s important to buy a presentable basket that you can use. The last thing you’d want is to ruin the appearance of your gift by using a shabby, worn-out basket. Once all the items are placed inside it, use a translucent cloth (preferably tulle or any net fabric) in the themed color to cover the basket from all sides. Bunch the fabric on top and tie it with an aesthetic bow or ribbon.

Step 6: Customize it

Lastly, make sure to customize your gift by writing a personal card/note that shows the recipient that you’ve put thought into the gift—which, at this point, you really have!

If you follow these steps, you can rest assured that your gift will be both special and useful for your loved ones.
