Creative Ideas For Childrens Gift Baskets
Gift baskets are wonderful present ideas for birthdays and other special events in childrens lives. With a little creative thinking you can put together gift baskets that are perfect for the occasion and that the children they are intended for will adore.
A gift basket for the little chef in your life would be very simple to put together. If the child in question loves cookies take a large mixing bowl and add all the ingredients as well as the recipe for their favorite cookies. A gift basket made up with all the ingredients to make caramel corn would make a lovely gift for older children.
Childrens gift baskets for the young ladies in your life are a snap to put together. A tea party gift basket could be made by placing a plastic tea set (perhaps a more fragile set for older children), some fancy cookies or other edible treat, and some inexpensive dress up clothes like gloves and costume jewelry in a fancy decorated box. A makeover gift basket could be put together simply by taking a trendy purse or tote bag and putting nail polish, lip glosses, a face mask or scrub and some new jewelry and hair accessories.
Some other great ideas for childrens gift baskets include a fun in the tub gift basket: bath tub paint, a brightly colored scrubby or bath mitt, bubble bath and a tub toy placed in a plastic bucket. A gardener's helper gift basket could have a pair of gardening gloves, a small shovel and several packets of seeds placed in a large pot.
A good tip to keep in mind while making childrens gift baskets is keep your recipient in mind, that way you will create a gift that will best suit their personality.
