DIY Christmas Gift Basket Ideas

By: D. Halet
It is not easy to select the Christmas gift that will please to everyone: we never know if the gift will be appreciated by its recipient.How many times have you received a gift that is never emerged out of the cupboard in which you putted it?I myself received hundreds of gifts that I do not use, especially at Christmas Time. And I do not mention the decorative objects, that I do not know what to do with because they do not match the decoration of my house or simply because I have no place to put them on.This year, try to give useful and/or consumable Christmas gifts. By giving something useful and consumable such as skin care products or food products, you are sure that your gift will be appreciated.Christmas gift baskets are the solution.Unfortunately, ready-made gift baskets can be expensive and we sometimes have to spend a lot of money to buy them without being sure that all the contained products will please.So, what about a homemade Christmas gift basket? It is an excellent way to save money on the cost of the basket and products included. You even do not have to buy the basket.Gift baskets can be easily made out of wooden boxes, briefcases made of leather or vinyl, or shoe boxes nicely decorated...If the products you plan to include in the basket are too expensive, you will be able to reduce their number and save more money.Here are some Christmas gift basket ideas."Rustic Gourmet":Varnish a wooden wine case, use a "rustic oak" tinted varnishFill the case with decorative straw or unbleached silk or crepe paperAdd the following products:- Three bottles of wine (red, rose and white),- A pot of fat liver,- 2 legs duck confit,- A pot of deer pate,- A pot of wild boar,- Three jars of wine jelly (red, rose and white),- A pot of onion confit,- A pot of truffles.Economic Option:- A bottle of sweetened white wine,- A pot of deer paté,- A pot of wild boar,- A jar of wine jelly"I Love Chocolate":Use a metallic box,Fill it with pink silk or crepe paperAdd the following products:- A bottle of chocolate liquor,- 250 g Leonidas chocolates,- Chocolate bars - Côte d'Or Special Edition,- A natural cocoa box,- Boxes of fruit, flower or citrus flavoured sugar"Espana Por Favor":In a metallic basket, place red and yellow silk or crepe paperAdd the following products:- A bottle of Ponche,- A bottle of "Sangre de Toro" wine- A pata negra ham or serrano ham,- A chorizo,- A "Manchego" cheese,- A bottle of Spanish olive oil,- Almond Turron,- An assortment of Christmas cookies (Surtido de Navidad)"Provence" (skin care):Cover a shoebox with Special Christmas gift wrapLine the inside with colorful silk paperSurround the box with a wide colored ribbonPut a towel of the same colorAdd the following products:- A Marseilles scented soap,- A shower gel,- A box of bath salts,- A bottle of body scented oil,- A bottle of floral water,- A horsehair glove"Belgian Beer Discovery" Gift Basket:Use a wooden shelf and put the bottles on it.
