Fall In Love With These Easy To Make DIY Gift Baskets
If you love being creative and want to give Christmas gifts with a personal touch, gift baskets are a great way to go. At first, I was intimated by a creating professional looking gift basket. Admittedly, my first few attempts were just ok and certainly would not have won any gift basket awards.
To get started on designing your own DIY gift baskets, select your container, basket bag, ribbon and shredded metallic paper. I like to buy a container that can be reused, such as a pretty bowl or suede bin (like the one pictured).
Next decide on the contents. This is the fun part. It is helpful to decide on a theme for your DIY gift baskets. Since I am in the beauty and cosmetic business, often I create beauty gift baskets. Typically, I include my favorite cosmetics and makeup brushes.
Purchase your items in a variety of sizes. Start by placing the taller items at the back and the shorter items in front. Carefully place your container in the basket bag, tie your ribbon and attached your gift tag! If you end up with little wings on each side, carefully pin them back with clear tape.
Now you have now created a truly personal and beautiful Christmas gift. No beauty gift basket would be complete without our Vemayca cosmetic bag. Super soft, machine washable and featuring our exclusive snap out liner, this cosmetic bag is the perfect gift for all your beauty obsessed friends.
Some of my other favorite DIY gift baskets are shown below. The themes and designs are endless.
The animal print gift basket is one of my all time favorites. Perfect not only for as a Christmas gift, but great for a birthday celebration or a bon voyage gift. I made my cosmetic bag front and center in this gift basket.
This Christmas gift basket was created with a red plastic bowl that was purchased at the Container Store. Not only will your friends enjoy all the goodies inside, they will also enjoy having a bright red bowl for Christmas. The snowflake gift basket bag adds a festive feel to the entire presentation. Good luck making your own DIY gift baskets. And be sure to let me know how they turn out.
