Making a basket of candy to give as a gift is easy to do and can be a lot of fun. You can make baskets for all ages, which means this is a gift idea to consider when you aren’t sure what to give to someone or when you have several people of all ages to buy gifts for during the holiday season.
Aside from putting candy inside the baskets that you make, you can also include a few of the snacks that the person likes. A snack care basket can be made with a large box as the base and a variety of small bags of chips and cookies as well as a variety of candies inside. Combine snacks that are sweet and salty so that there’s something for everyone inside.
When you make candy gift baskets, think about ways to make it creative so that it doesn’t look like something you would get at a store. Use a color theme when making the basket, getting candies and snacks that are all the same color, such as yellow or blue. Make baskets with candies that are similar in how they taste or that are fun and exciting to look at and eat, such as sour candies or those that have a rainbow theme.
Another option that you have when making a candy basket is to make it nostalgic. Think about the age of the person who will receive the gift. Stock the basket with candies and snacks that were popular when the person was younger. Add a few personal touches to the basket with large numbers and a few images that correlate with the time frame, such as neon colors for a 1980s basket. You could also make the basket look a bit more elegant than a typical candy gift by using gold or silver paper to line the container and a few ribbons on the handle of the basket along with candies that are delectable and indulgent.
