Gift basket ideas

Whether it’s a ‘thank you’ or a ‘congratulations’, Christmas or birthday, if you’re stuck on what to buy for an occasion at work, a corporate gift basket is a great option. Choosing and giving other types of gift can be nerve-wracking process but a corporate gift basket will neither disappoint nor offend.

The Internet is packed with gift giving websites offering their services, some even provide same-day delivery which is great if you left your gift buying to the last minute. However, what should be a quick and easy gift solution can become a difficult and lengthy process if you don’t have an idea of what you want before you start. Knowing what the occasion is, how much you want to spend and some information about the recipient will make this process much less painful.


Most major merchandisers offer a range of made-to-order and ready-to-go gift baskets, especially during the main holiday season. If you really want to impress a client or colleague and have a fair amount to spend, the top of the range corporate gift baskets are bound to wow. Gourmet foods including cheeses and truffles accompanied by a fine bottle of Dom Perignon Champagne might do the trick. But gift baskets don’t have to break the bank. Choose a similar style basket but substitute the truffles for nuts and the Champagne for a decent bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon and you’ve got a lovely present for under 50 dollars. If you want to half that cost again, pass on the alcohol altogether and stick to nuts, cookies and chocolates.

If you’re worried that a traditional gift basket may seem a little stuffy, consider one of the many types of novelty gift basket available. Perfect for the office is a gift basket contained within a mini filing cabinet or an artificial stack of books brimming with goodies.

Putting together your own basket allows you to create a good impression by including items you know are personal favorites. If you know someone is for example a golf fan, then perhaps a golf gift basket complete with chocolate tees and real balls presented in a golf bucket would be more the golf lover’s thing. And if its golf for the men, what about a pamper bucket for the ladies? A little bit of luxury never goes amiss; just tell them not to eat the ‘chocolate’ soap.
