Try to plan that the basket part will cost you $2 or less for a small size gift basket, $4 or less for a medium size and under $6 for a large gift basket. (Large boxes $2, medium boxes $1.50 or $1.25, small boxes $1 from Dollarama).
Laura – Ordered two of the same item shipping to same address for birthdays. One did not arrive until 4 days after the stated delivery date. Luckily one arrived on time and kids shared. See Full Review
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.)

You simply can’t go wrong combining chocolate and coffee in one basket. This is a double whammy for anyone that loves their coffee and chocolate. The caffeine from the coffee and the addictive nature of chocolate means they’ll probably want another basket once this one is finished.

We enlisted 20 coworkers to taste test 11 gift baskets from the top gift basket companies. The best overall gift basket is the Founders’ Favorite Gift Box from Harry & David because it features delicious, ripe fruit and snacks that are unique and tasty. If you’re a cheese connoisseur or interested in trying more gourmet foods, we recommend the California Classic Gift Basket from igourmet.com. If you want the largest basket for a comparable price, the Gourmet Choice basket from Wine Country Gift Baskets is best.
This basket not only gives them champagne wishes in the form of a bottle of your choice of champagne, but also provides chocolates and other delectables to enjoy with the champagne.

If you’re not quite sure what they like, send them a box that has a little bit of everything. This is full of the favorites of the founders of this gift box company, so it’s going to have items in it that have mass appeal. Cheese, crackers, cherries, and mints are just some of the things they’ll be able to enjoy once this arrives.
Decorative tins, flower pots, flower vases, plastic containers, bowls, platters, trays, wood boxes and of course baskets all make good bases for gift baskets. (Baskets 50 cents to $3 at various garage sales).
This is the fruit basket to end all fruit baskets, with three different fruits to enjoy. This is a great gift for someone who leads a healthy lifestyle and likes high quality fruit. Succulent pears, crisp apples, and ripe oranges make up this pack, plenty of fruit to get them through the day.

It can be hard being a college student these days, with so much pressure to perform well and get a good job, all while being away from your family.

I found it very useful. I like that you included the information regarding anyone who is using it for a business. I am just starting out and need to learn how to promote my business. Thanks for the information and your book.
There can be five parts on how you make inexpensive gift baskets, the basket or container, the stuffing or shred (not always needed), the transparent wrap or cellophane to wrap it, the bow/ornament and card to top it all off and of course the gifts that you are making the basket with. You might already have some of the items already on hand which will bring the cost down.

If a friend of family is expecting or has recently had a new baby, a baby gift basket can be a very welcome gift. Baby baskets are usually filled to the brim with baby care necessities and fun extras, such as playtime items and picture frames. Some baskets can even double as baby carriers.
Cheese lovers will rejoice when they receive this hamper filled with an assortment of artisan cheeses. There are plenty of cheeses, and all of the accessories needed to enjoy them, like crackers, and salami, and even a cheese knife to help with the serving.
You can use a mix of store bought and homemade items to make inexpensive gift baskets, it does not have to be one or the other. If you give them a book in the gift basket then include a bookmark that you made yourself.
They are also looking for more bang for the buck. The initial impression of the gift basket is what they are selling so the fuller it looks the more they will be able to charge. (Small glass tray $1, large glass tray $2, glass bowls $2 each from Dollarama.) This is the first way they make inexpensive gift baskets look pricier than they are.
A good quality satin bow can really change the look of a basket from nice to incredibly rich and sumptuous. You can buy satin type ribbon from outlet stores for about 59 cents a yard for 1 1/2 inch wide ribbon. Two yards of this would be more than enough to make inexpensive gift baskets in the largest sizes.
The orchards must have been truly abundant to put together this fruit basket. It includes a sampling of different fresh fruits, mixed with cheese, crackers, nuts, and even chocolate covered cherries. There are also fruit themed items, like caramel to dip the apples into. Yum!

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.

Due to a disappointing day at the Paddocks Centre Market yesterday, i have decided to have an auction to clear all of our Valentines Day gifts that did not sell. As well as Valentines Day gifts, the auction also includes some Christmas gifts – the prices of which are very low – with prices so low, why not bid and win yourself some chocolate! There will also be a nappy cake and a few other chocolate bouquets up for grabs.
When the holiday season arrived, I wanted to do something special for my employees, my clients and their families. I knew I wanted to send out generous gift baskets, and I wanted them to be food gift baskets, but they needed to have that air of professionalism, since they were representing my business. That’s why I used GiftTree – their business food gift baskets were perfect, and their two day delivery meant that my employees and clients would receive their gifts right on time. But the best part came with GiftTree’s personalization – I was able to add my company’s logo on to each corporate gift basket, making it truly memorable!

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.
