A Tisket, A Tasket – What kind of Gift Basket?
Do you HAVE to use a basket for a gift basket? No, you don’t have to use a basket to make a gift basket! Let your imagination roam free! There are as many possibilities as there are stars in the sky. Ok, ok…I’m gushing.
Let’s ponder some of those possibilities then.
How about buckets, golf ball buckets, wine buckets, fishing tackle boxes/baskets, tool boxes, hats, caps, barbecue mitts, beer steins, ice chests, mugs, coffee cups, serving trays, trash cans, laundry baskets, planters, pitchers, hat boxes…
Get the idea? You can use just about anything you want, that you can put something INTO.
Thinking about it another way, you can go for something related to the occasion.

What guy wouldn’t love a creative homemade gift basket like this ~ A Tool Box Gift Basket?
Oh what dad doesn’t like his tools? Even the simple screwdriver or tape measure can be a great gift ; he could always use a new one or a spare. Or what about some chammy cloths or mechanic’s hand cleaner?
You can purchase an inexpensive (toy style) tool box or go to a hardware store and purchase a really nice one he can use.
Don’t just add tools though–add his favorite items such as magazines, drinks, snacks, gift cards, fishing supplies, garage decor or whatever it is that Dad loves. He will enjoy looking at this gift and then digging in.
Add large packs or items or tools such as screwdrivers towards the back of your toolbox.
Roll up magazines and put towards the back.
No need to wrap up this gift if you use some cellophane gift bags to wrap the individual items.
