Taking the Confusion Out of Carpeting

3 Fun Themed Gift Basket Ideas for Any Occasion

What is better than surprising a loved one with a special gift? Giving them a gift basket filled with themed gifts. Themed gift baskets can be created for any recipient, young and old, and are sure to delight anyone on your gift list. They can be made to suit any event or occasion and are fun to put together.

1. Food-themed gifts

Always popular, food-themed gifts can be anything from a basket of favorite candies and confections to a cooking-themed basket filled with all the staples to make a meal. There is no end to the creative ways you can present a food gift.

Have a movie lover on your list? Create an at-home movie night experience for the recipient with all their movie favorites. Purchase a large movie theater popcorn container and stuff it to overflowing with DVDs, boxes of movie theater candy, packs of popcorn, and some flavored popcorn toppings.

For a foodie, fill a mixing bowl with all the ingredients to prepare a themed meal. For an Italian meal, fill the bowl with boxes of pasta, sauce, and parmesan cheese. An Italian cookbook and a crusty loaf of Italian bread will be a perfect finishing touch to your gift.

2. Hobby themed gifts 

Hobby-themed gifts are personal and show the recipient that you care about your interests. A book lover will enjoy a basket containing the latest novel in the genre they love, bookmarks, special coffees and teas, and a book-themed mug to enjoy their beverages.

For a fisherman, fill a tackle box with fishing lures, hooks, and sinkers. A seamstress will enjoy receiving a sewing basket filled with sewing notions. A gardener will appreciate a flowerpot filled with seed packets, small garden trowels, and garden marker stakes.

3. Clothing themed gifts 

A variety box of socks is a foot-warming gift everyone will enjoy. You can also create a clothing gift basket based on the recipient's favorite color. For instance, if your loved one cannot get enough of blue, choose a blue shirt, blue socks, and a blue hat to include in your gift basket.

Presenting a loved one with a basket full of goodies is a wonderful way to show them you care. Themed gift baskets look amazing and can be as simple or as elaborate as you choose. Simply pick a theme, shop for supplies, and place them in a reusable basket or container to present to your friend or family member.
