Do you know what you are putting into your May Gift Baskets? Well, let’s see… the first week of May we have Teacher Appreciation Week (don’t forget about last day of school gifts too), followed by Mother’s Day (don’t forget your Mother in Law) and what about all of those high school and college graduations. The best thing about gift baskets is you can customize them to match the event of the recipient’s personality.
Here are some terrific ideas on what to put in your May Gift Baskets –
The Sweet Tooth
Chocolates and candies are always great to include, who doesn’t love chocolate! Sweet tooth’s will love to receive a basket full of chocolates, truffles, and chocolate-covered anything. Their mouth will water when they set their sights on these delicious treats, like irresistibly crisp cookies, or slow-melting chocolates.
For the person who likes nice things, choose items that are deliciously first class. Fresh and dried fruits, gourmet nuts, aged meats or salmon, a nice cheese and don’t forget a bottle of artisan water or a bottle of a top-of-the-line champagne.
This person is constantly giving of their time and talents and never think about themselves. Help them to relax and take a moment for themselves. Give items like fair trade coffee or chocolates, a great book, journal, a mug with a motivational quote an assortment of teas or coffee. Make sure your basket has something that gives back to the person who gives everything.
There are so many gift options for this person on your list. Create the gift around things they enjoy doing. The golfer, cooker, gardener, camper, wine enthusiast goer and so. Need help…we can customize your basket with whatever hobby they enjoy.
What is better than a trip to the spa??? Nothing, well maybe a trip to Hawaii! The relaxer is a person that loves to be in the moment, maybe with a good book or relaxing in the spa. Bring the spa to the comforts of their home by suppling everything they will need to have a relaxing spa. Luxurious lotions and shower gels, silk bath robe, bath matt, loofa and a clean scented candle is a great start. Adding truffles and tea or artisan water adds another WOW factor to the gift.
This person is always interested in learning a new skill or something new! A gift basket is a perfect way to give them the tools needed to get started. If they want to learn how to make wine, cheese, play golf, paint. A basket with the needed tools will be surely welcomed.
The Health Conscious
For the person who is conscious of what they eat, we can fill their basket with smart snacking options – of course, they taste great! We can also add in healthy dark chocolate because you know it is a vegetable!
Not everyone who loves to play games is into online games. We can handle both. Adding chips and dip, nuts, root beer, soda will have them ready for an all-nighter. Family game nights are also great for this gift basket. So whether it’s for the all night gaming tournament, or for a Friday night family game night, we can make it sure to please.
The Gourmet is always challenging themselves with the latest recipe or trying to up their popcorn to new heights. Treat them with something extra special by including gourmet delights in the basket. A monogrammed apron, tea towels, earth-friendly dish and hand soap for the kitchen, cookbook, wood spoon and a spatula make for great items.
The Coffee Lover
Cater to their taste with a basket that has everything you need to enjoy a great cup of Joe. With items such as whole coffee beans, coffee press, biscotti, flavoring syrups, mug, and maybe even a book on coffees from around the world. The coffee basket will be everything this person loves about coffee and will allow them to make an impressive cup of coffee.
This is the person who likes to keep their hands dirty. New gardening gloves, hat, most-used gardening tools, an all natural bug repellent, sunscreen, water bottle, trail mix and even few packets of their favorite seeds. The recipient of this gift will grow in gratitude.
Golf can we a way of life, some are obsessed with hitting those tiny balls off into the sunset. Our golf basket is loaded with all the essentials and accessories. We can include towels, tees, divot tools, club cover, hat, gloves, mug, and even a picture frame. Make sure to include some snacks too!
Give this gift to someone who loves to cook or the newly wed couple who loves cooking together. Items such as a cookbook, artesian cooking tools, apron, kitchen towels and linens, kitchen timer, and even a magnetic menu list are staples every cook should have. We will include new gadgets or all the tools to make a special meal. Don’t forget to include wine that goes with the meal too.
No matter if the person on your list likes adventure or calm, sweet or savory, mild or spicy, a gift basket full of treats especially for them will be a welcomed gift. We can prepare a personalized gift basket for anyone.
