It’s easy to make a unique birthday gift basket for a woman. All you have to do is personalize the gift to her interests. The gift basket can be as inexpensive or as luxurious as you want. To make a customized birthday gift basket, you will first need an empty wicker basket. Also get some shredded paper or a cloth liner in a feminine color or print. Lay it in the bottom of the gift basket, then get a bow in a matching color to place on the front or handle of the basket when you’re done. It may also be helpful to question the birthday girl ahead of time to find her specific interests and birthday wishes.
Get some aromatherapy candles, bath salts, bubble bath, body wash, decorative soaps and bath beads in her favorite scent. Also find some scented body lotion, some potpourri, a sisal or loofah scrubber and a back massager. Personalized items to place in the birthday gift basket include a monogrammed hand towel and a custom mug with her picture or favorite saying. To make her gift basket truly luxurious, add some decadent chocolates and some relaxing herbal teas.
Wine and Cheese Basket
Find a selection of gourmet country cheeses such as cheddar, Gouda, Swiss and Monterey Jack. Also find a bottle of her favorite variety of wine. Ask her ahead of time whether she likes red, white or blush wine. Check a resource like the Indy International Wine Competition for suggestions for inexpensive award winning wines. Also choose some delicious snacks such as crackers, nuts and olives.
A country breakfast basket makes the perfect birthday gift for the country woman. If you plan to cook her breakfast for her birthday, get some pancake or waffle mix. If you won’t be cooking for her, then put some gourmet bakery treats such as muffins, cinnamon rolls and biscuits. Include some jam or jelly made from country fruit, some fresh and dried fruit, packets of coffee and tea, some maple syrup and a cloth napkin in her favorite color.
Before you start assembling a tea gift basket, find out what her favorite kind of tea is. The available varieties of tea include green, white, black, oolong and herbal. There are also many mixed teas that combine the flavors and benefits of multiple varieties. If she likes more than one type of tea, be sure to include several different teas in the basket. Also include some packets of flavored coffee, chocolates and mixed nuts to make this gift basket complete.
Check your local health food store for organically grown fresh fruit such as apples, pears, oranges and bananas. To add interest to the birthday gift basket, get the organic fruit in several different colors and varieties. Add a bottle of organic wine, packets of healthy snacks such as organic nuts, crackers and popcorn and a bar of organic chocolate. Other treats to add include organic jam, dried fruit, teas and cookies.
