Halloween is just around the corner, and you know what that means? Time to start your holiday shopping. Believe it or not, now is the perfect time to start thinking about gifts for the ones you love - time flies faster than you can blink!
And what’s the best way to say you care? By creating a personalized, DIY gift basket, complete with etched glass gifts.
A DIY gift basket is essential for that “hard to shop for” person on your list. Here are 4 easy tips for putting one together.
The theme of the gift basket will determine everything that goes into it. For example, if you are creating a basket for an uncle who loves the Philadelphia Eagles, you will want to include items related to the sports team, such as a Philly Philly glass . If you’re creating a basket for a mother-in-law who loves a glass of wine and a soak in the bathtub, add items that will help her to have a relaxing evening at home.
This is optional, but it does make the gift basket appear professionally done. Choosing a color scheme is also a nice way of showing that you know your loved one well. If you choose items that are their favorite color, they will probably love everything in the basket even more. If your niece loves purple and white, choose a purple and white throw blanket along with a bottle of purple nail polish. It will give the basket a finished look.
This is the most important element in creating a DIY gift basket. The best gift is one that’s ready for use immediately and will last a long time. Choose 4 gifts that are meaningful, well-made, and personalized for their immediate use.
For example, choosing a candle, a throw blanket, a bar of chocolate, and a personalized etched wine glass would make a beautiful combination of gifts. Each one is easily used and sophisticated.
In fact, adding etched glass gifts it the best way to personalize the gift basket for your loved one.
