1. Something for Her
Start by thinking of her likes and interests. Let’s say she loves to cook. In this case, I would start my gift basket by picking out an interesting and aesthetically pleasing cookbook for her portion of the gift basket.
2. Something for Him
Next, add something that’s particular to his taste. My go-to for any man is a nice bottle of bourbon. If he’s not into drinking, you can use cigars, playing cards, or anything manly that is still pleasing to the eye.
3. Something Edible
Cellophane bags of caramel corn, cookies, caramels, etc., are perfect for making the basket look abundant and sophisticated. Bars of chocolate are also lovely, just steer clear of “Dollar Candy” such as the typical candy you can find at any Walmart or drug store.
4. Something for the Home
A nice candle, blanket, bottle opener, mule mugs, or a coffee table book (if books are not already used for a different portion) can add depth to the gift, since home decor or tools can be for both men and women.
5. Something to Do
To add excitement to the gift, I like to add an activity for the couple to do together, such as a cocktail recipe to create (to go along with those mule mugs), or a cozy date night idea (a reason to use that blanket!)
Lastly, find the perfect basket (I like wire baskets or wooden crates) and fill with paper shreds. Place each item neatly in the basket, add finishing touches such as a bow and hand-written tag, and Voila…the perfect couple’s gift basket!
