3. Keep it Local
What makes a gift basket really special is that fact that you chose each item personally. Locally made or sourced goods always seem more thoughtful.
4. Build Your Basket Right
You want to start with a shallow basket, bowl or box so you can see the items peeking out. Fill your base with tissue paper. This holds items in place. Then add a pretty tea towel.
5. Add Some Decoration
If your basket is for the holidays then you need to add a little bit of flair. Try adding an on-theme ornament or a few small decorative trees.
