Holiday baskets are often the easiest to make. You can find plenty of decorations in stores through the year. The best time to get decorations to make the baskets is when they are on clearance after the holiday season. Red bows, greenery and candy canes can be used to accent the outside of the basket that you choose. When you begin adding the items to the inside, think about what the person enjoy. Candy and other sweet treats are always good ideas to include, or you can make a fruit basket that is a little healthier for the recipient.
