As we are heading into the holiday season, many of us are scrambling to find the perfect gift for everyone on our list. Sometimes we have gifts that we have collected over the years already set aside, and sometimes it is easy to buy the appropriate gift, but often, we find that the holidays have arrived too soon, and we have not thought about what gifts we want to give. We should take a deep breath and know that even if it is the last minute, we don’t have to stress.

The closer we get to the holidays, the more stressed we are likely to be about buying gifts. The good news is that we have lots of wonderful last-minute Christmas gifts that we can choose from. In many cases, we find that gift baskets are an easy and quick choice and a way to create something spectacular no matter how last minute we have left things. We can either buy gift baskets filled with treats or make our own gift baskets filled with items we know someone will love.

Gift Basket Ideas

Yummy Morning Gift Baskets

Morning Gift Baskets

As we all know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. As a result, breakfast-themed gift baskets are usually a hit. A breakfast gift box could look like a package of pancake mix, a container of maple syrup, and a jar of fancy jam. A breakfast gift box could also look like providing all the ingredients for yummy crepe roses with blood oranges and cardamom. On the other hand, we could consider a breakfast subscription plan so our gift recipients will have yummy breakfasts to look forward to all year long.

Yummy Savory Gift Baskets

There are many different kinds of savory gift baskets we could give. We might go with a traditional meat and cheese basket. We might consider purchasing a Charcuterie gift basket. We may even go as far as sending an Antipasto gift basket or a sushi gift basket. We are only limited by our imagination when it comes to delicious gift baskets. Whatever delicious cuisine someone enjoys, we can design a gift basket around it. Savory gift baskets are always appreciated because they include all the ingredients for someone to prepare something delicious by hand and are sure to be used, so they do not take up any of the limited space in someone’s home.

Yummy & Sweet Gift Baskets

Sweet Gift Baskets

Everyone enjoys getting a sweet treat. This could mean creating a chocolate gift basket or an ice cream gift basket. This might include pastries or muffin mixes that can be made at home. This could also look like a range of locally sourced honey, which is both a sweet treat and a way to reduce allergies. No matter what type of sweet treat we decide to include, we will find that sweet treats are sure to bring a smile to any face.

Yummy Beverage Gift Baskets

Everyone has a favorite drink. That could be tea, coffee, or hot chocolate, or it could be something stronger. For tea or coffee baskets, we may provide a variety of flavors, a mug, and a coaster. We could make a hot chocolate bomb the centerpiece of a hot chocolate gift box. Other baskets might include all the ingredients for a favorite mocktail or all the fixings to make mulled wine or cider. Warm beverages are especially appealing during the winter when everyone wants to huddle up under covers and hide from the cold. We could also give a beverage subscription so no one will run out of their favorite beverages.

Fancy Gift Baskets

Gift Basket

While we can always focus on one type of item when creating a gift basket, we can also combine types. For example, combining breakfast and sweet treats and including a waffle mix, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and sprinkles. Or choosing a theme, such as a NY inspired gift basket filled with everything from classic chocolate babka, pastrami, onion rolls, and Jewish rye bread, to all the fixings someone needs to put together a delicious sandwich. When it comes to yummy gift baskets, we can create a basket around any type of food someone loves as well as any diet concerns they might have.
