Ever Wanted to Make Your Own Themed Gift Baskets?

If you've always wanted to know how to make your own gift baskets, this article will give you some tips to get started. Gift baskets are such a wonderful gift and can be given for any occasion. Creating personalized themed gift baskets is a great gift to give that someone special. Gift Baskets are easy to make and a joy to give.

When creating a themed gift basket, don't limit yourself as to the type of basket that you can create. It can be something simple and small, homemade or lots of great goodies that make a really beautiful gift basket.

Here are some unique themed gift basket ideas for children, teenagers and parents:

Teenaged Girls Gift Basket

Find a small to medium sized basket and line the basket with pink tissue paper or raffia grass. Buy a sampler pack of flavored lip glosses, powders, lotions, a makeup kit and a light sporty fragrance and artistically arrange. Don't forget bracelets, rings, watches, earrings, and necklaces. Wrap the basket with colored cellophane and tie with a pretty ribbon and bow.

Teenaged Boys Gift Basket

Place a couple of their favorite CD's or DVD's in the basket along with a pocket comb, cologne, and skin care products designed for males.

Smaller Children Gift Basket

Using a medium sized basket, place a thin and soft blanket in as a liner. Select a couple of dolls, stuffed animals, cars, or whatever toys the child might enjoy inside.

Older Children Gift Basket

Big kids are wild about cartoon pencils and erasers, stickers and trading cards. Add small games (like a Game Boy along with accessories) and the latest Harry Potter book.

Infants and Babies Gift Basket

Place a soft receiving blanket in along with socks, teething rings, rattlers, and a small plush toy. Baby brush sets, clippers, bottles, and pacifiers can be added. Or make a basket filled with baby skin products and diapers.

Ladies Gift Basket

A romantic gift basket for her should include chocolates, scented candles, perfume, a framed photo of the two of you, and a handwritten poem or note.

Gift Basket for a Man

Include his favorite drink (which may be wine, beer, bottled water or a soft drink), his favorite munchies, aftershave, a handwritten poem or note and a photo for beside his bed.
