Make it personal

Tailoring the gift basket to fit the recipients’ hobbies, pastimes, favorite teams or passions is one way to make your gift stand out. A baseball fan may receive a personalized baseball cap, autographed jersey, game tickets or even an old ball glove that sparks childhood memories. Also, consider the occasion: A retirement basket may include more lasting gifts than a birthday basket, for example.

Make it memorable

It’s easy to find some universal promotional gifts that anyone would appreciate, such as blankets, travel mugs or insulated water bottles. Going above and beyond the norm will create a gift they are sure to remember. If you have cooking fans on your gift list, include some personalized BBQ tools or kitchen utensils and they’ll remember your name every time they fire up the grill. People who love the outdoors will appreciate wicking shirts, athletic apparel, gym bags and hydration gifts. Increase the fun factor without making your basket expensive by adding some candy, nuts, gum or other food. You also can include sport flyers, light-up bracelets or necklaces, sports noisemakers, fidget spinners and foam or vinyl balls to ensure your gift makes a big impression.

Make is eye-catching

Wrapping your basket with cellophane, a bow and a tag is a common way to present a gift. Get creative and use other containers for a unique look. Recipients who love gardening would appreciate gardening-related gifts in a large planter or sturdy pot. Car lovers or travelers would appreciate receiving their items in an automobile organizer or utility tote. Another solid base for your gift is a picnic basket, picnic set or picnic basket cooler. Round out this practical gift with a blanket, vacuum insulated wine bottle holder, imprinted tumbler or high-end water bottle. Hard or soft coolers and ice buckets can also make good containers for gift baskets.
