Happy Friday and Happy December! You may have not been ready to tackle the gifting list back in November, but there was reason behind the madness of starting my Holiday gifting series when I did – all in preparation for what is now prime gifting season! I’ve covered many recipients already, and have revamped several of last year’s guides with active links to shop for all those on list! You can access all of the guides here! I still have a few guides under my belt (including today’s gift baskets and white elephant exchange) to share this month, so if there is still someone on list, not to worry – we aren’t done yet! My hope is to remain a reliable source for all your gifting needs this season.
Gifting is something I love to do. Yes, finding that one perfect gift for someone is beyond satisfying, but once found I am often on a quest to add a little something extra. Something to make it a little more special, thoughtful and personalized. Cue the gift baskets! Piecing together gift baskets can be tedious, I know. But not to worry – I’ve assembled options for you! Today I’ve gathered up 8 of my favorite gift basket ideas (all sourced from Pinterest) and listed them below! If you’d like to see where they came from, you can click the source link and it will take you to the original post. I’ve linked similar items below, with a few added ideas under each one so you can create your own baskets! Happy building!
If you’ve known me long enough, you know the majority of my time back in the day was spent in the kitchen. Cake baking and decorating is so therapeutic to me. This Holiday cookie gift basket is absolutely adorable and one I’d love to receive. You can change up the coordinating colors to match her kitchen or stick with the Christmas red theme. 1

This would equally work well for a hostess as a year round gifting option! I just love the sophistication and overall appeal of this basket. Modern and classic. 4
I am absolutely in love with this basket. My father was a plant nursery manager growing up, and tho I never took up a green thumb, his craft always created the prettiest front yard flower garden. This basket is so thought out and pieced together beautifully, any gardener is sure to enjoy! 5

Holiday movie night
Who doesn’t love Christmas movies? This is the cutest themed gift idea! If giving to a family, you can find out pajama sizes for the entire family or gift the kiddos each their own! If gifting past the Holidays you could always go with the general theme of movie night and gift accordingly! 6
