Do you bake, make jams or jellies, or create your very own Christmas ornaments? Give your handmade goodies to friends and relatives in a beautiful gift basket, they'll never believe you did it! Keep reading and see how easy gift baskets are to create...

Craft business?
Gift Baskets can be a great way to package and market your product. Increase your sales by creating attractive groupings of your product and market them to your customer in a gift basket. Not only have you answered their gift giving dilemma, you've solved the problem of wrapping it!

How do you start?
Gift baskets look best if they are a grouping of products with a common   theme. The theme could be a color (products that are all purple for someone who loves that color), an activity (a bath, a spaghetti dinner), an occasion (birthday, anniversary, Christmas) or a hobby (golf, quilting, reading romance novels), you get the idea. Be creative and group a variety of products together. See how they look together.
