How to Make Your Own Gift Basket - Canada AM

Posted on November 30, 2015 by Hazelton's Staff | 0 Comments

About two weeks ago, CTV's Canada AM gave us a call asking us to prepare a blog for their website with the theme "How To Make A Gift Basket".  Below is the blog, we provided.  Also, we were invited to show these tips on the show on November 30, 2015. It was very exciting for us and hopefully informative for you!

Our Blog: Gift Baskets are all of the rage these days. Today, Gift Baskets include quality gourmet food products from all over the world in unique and exotic containers made of wood, porcelain, metal, glass, hyacinth, sea grass, leather and even edible chocolate. The days of the cheap “Cardboard Gift Baskets” are almost gone - thank goodness!

In this blog, we show you ten tips for making contemporary Gift Baskets that will be appreciated and cherished by your gift recipients. Here are the Top 10 Tips for making Unforgettable Gift Baskets for everyone on your gift list:

Tip #1 - Think of the Gift Recipient First - Does the gift recipient love chocolate, sports, coffee, tea, the spa or fine wines? Are they a school teacher, a child, a new mother/father or environmentalist? Is their personality outgoing and fun or more serious and introspective? The Gift Basket you create should reflect the gift recipient’s personality and life experiences. If they are from France and miss home, you might want to consider a rare French wine, chocolates and lavender soaps. If they love chocolate, include chocolate items that they cannot get at the local grocery store or chocolatier.
