Buy a basket
First of all, buy a decent basket for the gift. You can choose the basket you want from a local thrift store. Try to get the right size of the basket as there are a variety of sizes available in the market. You should consider the colour or the shape of the basket beforehand in accordance with the person you need to present the basket to.
Determine what things you need to add to the basket
This is the most important part. You need to determine what items you want to place in the basket. This will highly depend on the person you are sending the gift to. If the friend is a girl, you can always add chocolates, candies, candles, magazine etc. This depends on the person’s hobbies and likes.
Fill the base of the basket
The next thing you need to do is to fill in the base of the basket with colourful tissue papers. This is done to cover the base of the basket and also to provide a firm hold to the things that need to be placed. You can also use cellophane or wrapping paper instead of tissue papers.
Add the items to the basket
Carefully place the items in the basket. You should place the items in a proper manner with the smaller items in front and the larger and heavier items in the back. This will also give a neat look to the basket and it will be easier to carry.
Decorate the basket
When all the items are placed, you need to give the final touches by decorating it. Wrap a plastic paper over all the items and decorate the handle with a bow.
