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.
New parents sometimes don't think about the little things that they need once the baby gets home. Create a basket that welcomes the new baby while giving parents a few of the things that they might need in the first few days at home. You can also include a gift certificate for a restaurant or a grocery store that can help financially after the baby is home. A diaper cake inside a basket is another idea. Include newborn diapers, wipes and small items like lotion and baby wash that can be used right away.
