Buying Guide for Christmas Gift Baskets

Rachel S.

Gifts are one of the best ways to show someone how much you care. Finding the right unique gift for them can be a task of its own, though. It can be daunting trying to find the perfect gift for every loved one during the holidays – which is exactly why gift baskets pose as an easy solution that everyone involved will enjoy. You can even personalize the Christmas gift basket to be unique to the loved one you’re purchasing it for.

Let’s dive into ways for finding the best Christmas gift basket for someone, how to add a personal touch to the basket to make it truly special, the types of baskets and towers available on the market, and even how to make sure it’s delivered on time for the holidays. Broadway Basketeers works to provide you with an honest, unbiased guide that you can use as fuel to find the best Christmas gift basket for anyone you might be shopping for.

Tips for finding the best Christmas gift basket

You know picking the perfect gift isn’t easy, especially for the loved ones who seem to have just about everything you could buy for them as it is. Even if they don’t need anything, that doesn’t mean the gift you give them has to lack utility. On the contrary, for the people who already have everything, gift baskets make a perfect gift that they’ll be able to enjoy from start to finish.

Professional or personal

The two big categories of gifts are professional gifts appropriate to give your co-workers or boss and personal gifts that are presented to family and friends. The best thing about gift baskets is they look good in a personal or professional setting, so you can keep this idea flowing no matter who you’re shopping for.

Strike up a conversation

When trying to find the best Christmas gift for anyone you’re shopping for this season, you can discover something new that they’ll like just by kicking off a conversation with them. Find out what they like by talking to the person, even if you talk to them on a regular basis already.

Think of what the recipient would like

Don’t make the mistake of buying something you would like for someone else – your likes and interests may be opposite to theirs. Perhaps you like milk chocolate while they prefer white chocolate. Examples like that make it easy to see why you want to base each person’s gift on things they would like instead of what you would like.

Consider how long you want the basket to last

There are plenty of gift baskets that can be consumed within the first couple weeks or even days of opening the gift basket. Likewise, there are the more luxurious gift baskets that will be used up over time, with just a few evergreen items in the basket to keep with them. Still, other gift baskets have tech or utility tools that someone would be able to use for years.

Decide how evergreen you want this gift basket to be to help you decide which is the best Christmas gift basket for this endeavor. Broadway Basketeers offers a variety of delectable gift baskets that also contain various evergreen items that will keep the memory of the gift basket alive in the recipient’s eyes for many years to come.

Base it on something you already know

Consider the passions and hobbies of the person you’re shopping for. Are they showing an interest in something lately? Have they hinted in some way what type of gift they might be looking for? Is there a specific purpose you want the gift basket to have for the person you’re buying it for? Asking yourself these questions will help you get down to the bare wants and needs of the individual you’re getting a gift basket for.

Types of Christmas Gift Baskets & Towers

While the main categories are just between personal and professional, those categories can be broken down into a range of different types of Christmas gift baskets and towers. We’ll examine each of these types and look at examples to give you a better idea of what kind of Christmas gift basket options you have available.
