A gift multiplies in its value by the way it is packed. The person celebrating his birthday loves to unravel his gift from the mass or papers and ribbons, and the glee is all the more if the gifts are stacked into a basket instead of an ordinary wrapper. In fact, birthday gift baskets are an easy way to put together all the goodies that you have bought for your dear one.
A birthday gift basket can have an exclusive assortment of varied gifts or contain different articles of the same sort. That is, you can pack the chocolates, candles, cosmetics and all the stuff in a single basket or fill it only with a uniform collection of chocolates or cosmetics. Whatever be your choice, try to pick gifts that are sure to delight the person unwrapping them. The birthday gift baskets are generally cane or plastic ones, but if it is a theme birthday party, or if there is some special gift to put
in the hamper, why go for the regular ones? The birthday gift baskets can be made unique with your creativity, and browsing the stores with a little care, you would come across a lot of unique containers that can make great baskets to carry the birthday gifts!
A chest shaped basket would definitely seem a treasure house of pleasure. For the young ladies, a purse shaped basket stuffed with cosmetics would double the fun of the gifts inside. A grocery bag or a bowl shaped one would be ideal for the women, while a beer mug one would be sheer delight for the men. For a pirate's birthday party, the best one would of course be a ship shaped basket, while plastic pail is perfectly suited if you are throwing the birthday person a beach party. Cane baskets are elegant carriers, but since they are so common, try to find one with an unusual shape or a beautiful knit. You can even try to hand paint a basket, or decorate it with sequins and ribbons to make the hamper really exclusive and add a personal touch to the gifts inside.
Packaging plays an important role in bringing out the value of a gift, and a well wrapped gift is sure to make the contents more precious to the recipient. Baskets are therefore a wonderful way of overwhelming the birthday boy or girl as he pulls out one gift after another.
