Gift Baskets for the Holiday Season!

School is in session again. Before you know it, the holiday season will be upon us. I love the holiday season with all its celebrations and happy memories in the making. Groups of kids attending fall festivals in their special costumes brings back wonderful memories of when we were young. Eager children playing tricks on unsuspecting adults adds fun to Halloween. The smell of that big turkey and all the trimmings on the Thanksgiving table warm the heart and soul. A special time when we can tell those we love thank you for being a part of our lives. The children filled with glee running to the Christmas tree to see what Santa has left them is such a delight! As adults, we gather around to see their excited expressions. It’s such a special time of year!

In our extended family, people are stretched out across the state and country. We would love to celebrate with all of our loved ones, but that’s just not possible. We still want to honor those loved ones far away as we spend time with those family and friends close by. Often times we don’t know what individual members of the family might like and gift giving can be a difficult choice or just too expensive.

Gift baskets are just the thing we need to give a special gift to a special someone. Bigger gift baskets are perfect when we want to honor a family many states away. I can give a smaller gift basket to a close friend or couple. With so many options, I can always find something I want to give to each part of our extended family.

We also own businesses and lead foundations with special staff that feel like our family. It is our goal to celebrate their involvement in our life as well. Their families are just as special as our own and their holiday season should be just as special. We can give them the joys of a gift basket that convey our thanks and appreciation.

Gift baskets created with loved ones in mind can be a unique, creative way to express your thoughts. Karen’s Collectors Cottage, Inc. & Art Gallery offers many choices of gift baskets for those special times. See a small collection of what we have to offer below.

Christmas gift baskets have become a new tradition for many people who love a convenient approach to holiday shopping and this will be no different this Christmas. There are plenty of reasons to consider these kinds of presentations this year and for years to come. The Christmas gift baskets offer everything you need to make a memorable impression.

A well chosen basket makes for an ideal holiday present because the recipient gets so much in the package. I like to give Christmas gift baskets to coworkers and to those nearest and dearest to my heart. There are many designs and countless arrangements to consider.

This approach is ideal if you are buying one present for a family. You can find many different themes that are perfect for a family of four or you can find ideal Christmas gift baskets for couples. Following are three quick examples of the many basket arrangements that you can consider.

Tradition is important to many of us who celebrate the holiday season. Even though the Christmas gift baskets are relatively new, you can still make choices that are traditional in nature. For example, the gingerbread man arrangement is a popular choice for many people who love the old fashioned theme.

You know that your Christmas gift baskets filled with traditional items like gingerbread cookies, flavored popcorn and hot chocolate will be greatly appreciated. Some basket designers add special touches like a solider nut cracker or a container shaped like a sleigh. Add some ornaments and you have a fantastic traditional present.

What about the office? Christmas gift baskets can have a corporate theme. These holiday containers are filled with various office inspired items including mugs, coffee, gourmet treats as well as handy desk supplies including pens and frames. If you can fit the item in a basket, it can be included in the presention.

Want something a little more personal? Why not check out the many breakfast inspired Christmas gift baskets? These presents are wonderful for any family who loves a nice meal in the morning. Imagine how the recipients will appreciate having all of the ingredients necessary to make the perfect traditional holiday breakfast.

The Christmas morning gift baskets are wonderful because they are so useful. I love presenting this gift to my brother’s family. They look forward to the bed-and-breakfast style meal on the very special holiday morning.

There are countless other Christmas gift baskets to consider. Once you see how convenient and inexpensive they are, you’ll know why these presentations are being adopted as a new holiday tradition.
