Homemade Gift Basket Ideas

Graduation is a time to celebrate your loved ones achievement through the years gone by and the years to be seen ahead. This would be the best day to celebrate along with family members and friends, and better still when you can gift them something that you created with love and care, putting in good thoughts and your energy.

The special day can be made brighter with some great Homemade Gift Basket Ideas rather than spending hundreds of dollars, which would be cherished by the one who receives the lovable gift hamper.

Now how does one go about personalizing the gift basket?


There are ways you can personalize the gift basket and with this write up we aim to help you with such information. Sometimes it is but understood that knowing everything what the recipients likes ad dislikes wouldn’t be possible, but it wouldn’t kill you to know some ideas on how to make the hamper a bountylicious gifting option.

  • Check if the recipient loves sports, movies, music and any other hobbies
  • Check with their future plans when you talk to them without letting the cat out of the bag
  • What are their career prospects and how would they want to embark on it?


Gifting a basket to the ones entering college:
  • Select a wicker basket that would be the base as an organizer
  • Colorful filler materials or make your own filler stuff with crepe paper and glittery hay
  • Choose a gift item like a paperweight or a photo frame to keep as a center piece
  • Surround the centerpiece with other useful items ( see below)
  • Other items are tea bags, noodle packets, coffee pouches, and soup ensembles, ready to cook packed meals, stationary items, gift cards for shopping and technology, an iPod, a vacation package voucher, a resume builder voucher and don’t cash vouchers for grocery and other needs.


Or you may have another gift basket made for them which can contain:

  • Gift cards for formal wear shopping

Please do not forget to include if possible and if the budget allows a vacation voucher which you can find with many travel agents, since after the graduation and before settling for a job the young individual would now like to have some time of their own. So make a gift basket that would include items like travel guides, maps, a travel alarm clock, couple of toiletries for the road and a travel mug to use.

With so many homemade gift basket ideas, you sure wouldn’t be getting this wrong any time soon!!
