A Valentines Day gift basket is fun to fill and give. Why not make one for your sweetheart this year? Gift baskets aren’t just for women. They don’t have to be fancy and frilly. Men would probably like a more toned down look. They’ll still appreciate your gift with or without the elaborate trim. Make it themed or random. Here’s a few themed ideas to get you started.
1. Tool man’s dream
This Valentine’s Day gift basket can be assembled easily. The cost depends on what tools it’s filled with. Use a plastic bucket for the basket. Add a bucket liner with pockets for tools. Fill it up with whatever your tool man needs. A home improvement store gift certificate can be tucked into one of the pockets as well. Tie a red velvet bow to the bucket handle as the only fancy touch to this manly tool man’s dream gift.
2. Department store lady of luxury
Your lady will ooh and ah over this gift basket filled with pampering treasures from economical department stores. Start with a simple, tasteful, silky nylon robe. Add inexpensive lotions, soaps, scrubs, creams and oils. Wooden hand massage tools, loofahs and scrubbers are a perfect addition. Include small perfume sprays with matching scents. Don’t forget to toss in a few bottles of nail color and some hair ties. This Valentine’s Day gift basket takes care of every little luxury.
3. Book lover’s treasury
Your Valentine loves to read. Make them more than happy with this next Valentine’s Day gift basket. On a budget? Keep costs low. Most books come in a paperback version. Nice things to add are magnetic themed bookmarks and puzzle books. Book lights for night reading lets your sweetheart enjoy their gift while you snooze. They’ll love selecting a book from the basket and settling in for a fantasy adventure of the mind.
4. Last minute supermarket basket
Start with coffees in flavors such as Swiss mocha and Viennese chocolate cafe. Does your valentine prefer tea? Fill their Valentines Day gift basket with assorted teas instead. Individual serving size flavored cocoas are an economical addition. Be sure to pop a few of these in the basket. What good is your favorite hot drink without a little shortbread or some biscotti? Don’t forget the chocolate, either! The final touch in this Valentines Day gift basket is your sweetheart’s favorite magazine rolled and wrapped with a pretty ribbon.
