Are you done with your Christmas shopping? Or are you stuck about what to get for your bestfriend? What to give to your in-laws? Or to someone so close to you but can’t think of a nice gift? How about considering a gift basket? Personally, I love giving and receiving gift basket! It is well thought of and with a personal touch. Whether it is a DIY or store bought, I am excited to open it up and see what’s in there.
Here are some of my favorite DIY Christmas Gift Basket ideas that are unique, creative and personalized:
Moscow mule is a cocktail made with vodka, spicy ginger beer and lime juice, garnished with a slice or wedge of lime and mint leaves. It is popularly served in a copper mug, which is the real star in this basket.
You definitely know someone who always prefers tea over coffee so this is for them. You can’t go wrong with this idea. Add your choice of tea, it can be assorted tea bags variety, tea rest, tea cup and cookies.
Personally, I think this is the best gift for busy moms. What a great gift for moms so she can relax after the busy and stressful holidays. Add lotion, body wash, loofah, scented candle and a jar of bath salts.
This is a meaningful gift basket for the whole family. For those with family traditions on Christmas eve, this will really play a part in creating memories. Have some classic Christmas movies, popcorn, hot cocoa mix, nuts, chips and add Christmas pajamas and a cozy blanket.
This kit is a perfect gift for your spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend for a night full of cuddles. Add some romantic movies, wine or sparkling juice, chocolate truffles, scented candle and a nice soft blanket. With a free printable gift tag if you go to the blog.
For a close friend or for a white elephant gift exchange because others say that you can’t go wrong with wine. In a wire basket, add a wine of your choice, assortment of spa essentials and a scented candle.
I would love to receive this basket anytime! For a mama who loves gardening specifically herbs, this is for you. You can add a potted fresh rosemary, organic dried herbs, buy or DIY herb-infused oil like basil infused oil and rosemary infused oil, garden gloves and other garden tools.
We can’t get enough of coffee! Add three blends of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee (that’s the author’s choice) but you can put your own choice. (remember: we are just getting some inspiration here). Put chocolate chip cookies, peppermints, chocolate covered espresso beans and holiday chocolate pieces. With a free printables on the blog.
This is a unique DIY kit because this is really not for everyone. Exclusively for those who are somewhere in the North (like where I am), who can experience a severe winter snow. Good for snow days where the whole family is stuck at home. In a tin or basket, add sugar cookie mix in a jar, cookie cutter, hot chocolate mix in a jar, and some chocolate spoons to mix the hot chocolate with, candy canes, sprinkles. You can visit the blog for the complete instructions and free printables!
This gift idea is for a cookie lover in your list that you know will be happy with this kit. Start with a large mixing bowl and fill with cookie baking essentials such as a cookie dough, cookie sheet, cooling rack, spatula, cookie scoop and holiday cookie cutters then add some sprinkles! Click the link and visit the site for a free download of cookie kit labels. Sweet!
A special gift that specifically for someone special, a friend who doesn’t take any dairy product thus non-dairy hot chocolate. Start with Silk Almondmilk or Coconutmilk, add the non-dairy cocoa mix, marshmallows, spoons dipped in chocolate, mugs and few gingerbread men. Check the site for the hot cocoa mix recipe.
There you go! I hope you were able to get some ideas and inspirations among these gift baskets. I love them all that’s why they are included in my list.
BUT…if you don’t have time for these DIYs, there’s nothing wrong in buying ready-made gift baskets from stores. That’s why it’s there, for busy people who can not do it themselves.
Here are some of store-bought gift baskets that are readily available:
