For Housewarming gifts, you can select potholders, towels, boxes of pasta, coffee or tea. You can also take a set of measuring spoons and place them on the ribbon so they dangle in front of the basket.
For a Baby shower you can start with the large white basket. Find some colored flowers without stems. Then glue them around the basket. You can use a glue gun for that. You can place a receiving blanket, cute little outfits, baby bottles. You can put a baby rattle outside so it hangs out in front of the basket.
For a Wedding gift a lot of times the wedding couple has everything they need already. Why not give them a honeymoon gift basket. You can put scented oils, massage oils and maybe even a bottle of champagne. Of course, don't forget a box of matches to light those candles.
Gift baskets can be fun and easy to make.
