Introducing the beau basket

Tara Butler, a gifting expert at Getting Personal explains: “Bae baskets are a great gifting idea for any time of year, however, they don’t just need to be reserved for your romantic partners. Whether you are making a bae basket for your partner, best friend, mum, children or even your pets, a thoughtfully crafted gift basket shows those you care about that you put time, effort, and love into selecting items that resonate with them.”

Top tips for creating a bae basket

Tara shares her seven top tips for creating a bae basket set to make a lasting impression:

  1. Know the recipient. The key to a successful gift basket lies in understanding the preferences and interests of the person receiving it. Consider their hobbies, favourite treats, and any shared memories you have together. Tailoring the contents to their tastes will show just how much thought you put into the gift.
  2. Choose a theme. Selecting a theme can add a touch of creativity and cohesion to your gift basket. Whether it’s a spa day theme with relaxation essentials or a film night theme with their favourite films and snacks, a well-chosen theme will take your bae basket to the next level.
  3. Gather supplies. Once you have a theme in mind, it’s time to gather the necessary supplies. Start with a basket or container as the base. Find a decorative basket, box, or even reusable tote bag that suits the theme and your recipient’s style. Make sure it’s spacious enough to accommodate all the goodies you have in mind.
  4. Personalised touches. Enhance the sentiment behind your gift by incorporating personalised gifts. Add a handwritten love note, a framed photo of a cherished memory, or even a playlist of songs that hold special meaning for both of you. These small details will make your bae basket unique.
  5. Select thoughtful gifts. Choose a variety of items that align with your chosen theme. For a spa day, include scented candles, bath bombs, a cosy robe, and a soothing playlist. If it’s a foodie-themed basket, opt for chocolates, artisanal snacks, and a bottle of their favourite wine or champagne.
  6. Arrange with care. Presentation is everything, so take the time to arrange your gifts in an aesthetically pleasing manner. Consider using tissue paper, shredded paper filler, or decorative crinkle-cut paper to protect the gifts. Place larger items at the back and smaller items in the front so none of the items are hidden.
  7. Wrap it up. Complete the look by wrapping your gift basket with cellophane or a large bow. A beautifully wrapped basket adds an extra layer of excitement and anticipation, making the unwrapping of the thoughtful gifts even more special.
