Use Your Imagination for a Truly Inspired Gift
At 2 Sisters Gift Baskets we love the gift basket business and we have a passion for inspired gifts. There is nothing wrong with giving someone a gift card. They’re great when you’re out of time, sending a gift to someone at a distance or you just don’t know what to give, but with a little more thought you can turn a gift card into an inspired gift. It requires minimal thought and effort on your part.
Choose the theme of your gift. It could be an occasion, a special interest someone has, or even a stage in their lives. Start with an appropriate “basket” container, almost anything will work, but it’s especially nice to use something that has a practical purpose. Assemble items that go with your theme, being sure everything will fit inside. Sometimes it’s best to choose the container after you have assembled the contents to assure a good fit. Add your gift card, finish with a bow, curling ribbon, or rafia, whatever you like. Voila you’ve made a one of a kind gift that will make someone’s day.
