Create the Perfect Gift Basket

A gift basket is a wonderful way to show appreciation, express congratulations or simply celebrate a special occasion. But how can you create a gift basket that truly stands out from the rest? The answer is simple: add pastries.

Ok, so obviously, it’s not really as simple as all that. You should put some serious thought into the gift basket, considering not only the occasion but also the interests of the recipient. But when all is said and done, pastries can finish a basket off to perfection. Don’t believe us? Observe how seamlessly pastries slip into any basket’s theme.

See how well pastries work with all of those baskets? Once you’ve got your basket all stuffed, it’s time to give it those final touches that make it look amazing. Put a cloth napkin or another decorative piece of cloth in the bottom. Then add your items, taking care to wrap breakable things in tissue, and putting heavy things in first, with medium sized things around the edges and smaller things tucked in here and there. Your pastries should be somewhere prominent, so the gift-ee will eat them in a timely manner! Wrap the basket in cellophane and tie it with a bow, attaching a pretty gift tag that matches the basket’s style.
