Think of the batter bowl as your gift basket. Line it with one or more cute, inexpensive kitchen towels and then fill it with little cooking, baking and miscellaneous fun items. The more colorful the better! Throw in things like baking spoons and spatulas, a cookie dough scoop, cheese graters and zesters, pretty colored and patterned paper straws, a sandwich crust cutter, sky’s the limit! Well, actually what all you can fit in the batter bowl is the limit. Cuz: Physics. If you have a favorite family recipe – print it and include a copy or write it on a recipe card to be extra thoughtful. Wrap a bow around it and you are golden!
You can curl the shred by pulling it gently over the edge of a dull pair of scissors. This might be a bit time consuming if you are doing many baskets but the effect is pretty and it is such a mindless activity you could do it while watching television. You could also use Easter grass if it is available to you or you have some left over. You don’t always need shred, you have to decide whether it will make the inexpensive gift baskets look better or not. Ideally you should be paying nothing for the shred. (If you do decide to buy shred make sure you get a color that you could use for several different baskets as a little goes a long way.)
The containers that they are looking for need to be unusual for the season, so they are looking for the new and interesting that hasn’t been seen before. One of the reasons they are doing this is so people can’t judge the cost of things if they are not familiar with them.

You might already have some of the items already on hand which will bring the cost down.

To test gift baskets, we ordered 11 baskets that cost around $100 from each of the top companies we researched. We took careful notes of how the baskets arrived and what condition they were in before we opened them up and spread the contents out in our break room. We gave each of our testers a ballot with the names of each basket and room to rate five food items from each basket. We also had our testers vote on the best basket overall and any food items that exceeded expectations. We then collected all the ratings and ranked baskets by the average of all the food scores.
