Gift baskets are a wonderful way to create a unique gift for someone. The best thing about them is that each one is custom-made to be just right for the recipient. The personal aspect not only assures that it will be a perfect gift, but that the one lucky enough to receive it will know you truly care. Scented candles can be a great addition to a gift basket, as they can be used to round out almost any theme. They’re a very economical addition, too.
Great Basket Ideas for the Cook
Everyone knows someone who loves to cook. If they’re lucky, that someone cooks for them! There are tons of great basket ideas for the chef on your gift list. Someone who loves to bake would love a basket containing some organic cinnamon sticks, a bottle of pure vanilla, some pretty oven mitts and a new rolling pin. Add a cinnamon, apple or pumpkin scented candle for the finishing touch.
Gourmets love gift baskets containing a gift subscription card for a great magazine, a pretty apron, a bottle of really good olive oil and a candle in a vanilla, almond or sage scent. You can even use some nice recipe cards to pass on some of your favorite gourmet recipes in your own hand.
Some Wonderful Ideas for the Girly-Girl
Gift baskets are very popular for women, particularly women who love toiletries and other feminine accoutrements. You can build a great spa-style basket with some bath beads, some pretty headbands, a sugar scrub and some new nail polish. Add a scented candle in rose, gardenia or peppermint to lend just the right scent to a spa night at home.
Another great idea is a floral theme. If the lady on your gift list has a favorite flower, you can build a whole basket on that theme. Perhaps some pretty dried roses arranged with a ribbon, some rose-scented sachets, a rose-patterned scarf and a lovely rose scented candle. The possibilities are endless.
Gift Baskets for Every Occasion
Once you start letting your imagination run free, you can come up with gift basket ideas to suit any occasion or person on your list. You can build a basket for a Sweet Sixteen party, a housewarming, a wedding or engagement or for a new mother. All of these can use scented candles to round out the theme and add just the right touch.
Gifts don’t have to be expensive to be truly wonderful. In fact, most people would rather have something that is personal, handmade and shows that you gave a great deal of thought to their personality, style and interests. Gift baskets are perfect for this very reason. Scented candles can be a great way to really flesh out a theme. The fact that they are so inexpensive is just icing on the cake.
