8 Creative & Elevated Gift Basket Ideas

I absolutely love the holidays, and while I do love all of the music, decor and entertaining, I think my favorite part is the gift-giving. One of my favorite creative activities is to come up with a personalized gift basket idea for someone I love. In this video, I share 8 creative, elevated gift basket ideas for everyone on your list. I have a few different criteria I like to keep in mind when I’m doing this, one being, is this something I would actually want to receive? And the other is, is this something that a person could always use (even if they already have one – i.e. we can always use a new pair of slippers!). I hope you enjoy these ideas!

for the hostess

These gifts work perfectly for anyone who loves to cook or entertain. I think a lot of people have a New Year’s resolution to cook more, so these items will definitely inspire them to do that!

Serving Boards | Apron | Salt Cellar | Flaky Sea Salt | Kitchen Towel | Olive Oil | Aleppo Pepper | Basket


This would also be great as a wedding, anniversary, or engagement gift. Pair with a bottle of bubbly, a couple of oranges, and a gift card to your favorite local bakery for a truly luxe breakfast-in-bed experience.
Serving Tray | Coffee Mugs | Champagne Coupes | French Press | Local Jams

self-care kit

Everyone can use a little self-care, and this kit is a favorite because it’s so adaptable. Pack it with your own favorite products and things you know they’ll love.
Body Scrub | Body Soufflé | Herbal Tea Set | Tea Stick | Candle | Slippers | Colored Pencils | Coloring Book | Dark Chocolate | Basket

diy sundae kit

I love this idea for both kids and the kid-at-heart! Who wouldn’t love this? Great for office gift exchanges, too. Add an assortment of your favorite toppings and sprinkles, or try pairing this with an ice cream delivery subscription (we love MilkMade for NYC and Jeni’s and McConnell’s for everywhere else.)
Turquoise Bowls | Copper Ice Cream Scoop | Salted Caramel | Hot Fudge

for the wine lover

I think most people I know happen to love wine, so this one is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser – but the fun part is the customization. Pair it with a bottle you know they’ll love, or even a new set of wine glasses (which everyone always seems to need!).
Coravin | Wine Gems | Wine Coaster | Brass Box

art journal kit

I love this idea for both the established artist (as a new art journal can always be of use) as well as anyone who is interested in exploring with art.
Art Journal | Watercolor Set | Fineliner Pens | Basket

diy pizza kit

Everything your recipient needs to create their own pizza night at home! This cookbook is my go-to for pizza dough, sauce, and technique. This is one of my favorite ways to spend an evening with friends and family!
Pizza Stone | Roberta’s Cookbook | Spicy Honey | Copper Pizza Cutter | Double-Zero Flour

movie night kit

I spent a lot of time sourcing the perfect popcorn bowl and this is it! It’s perfect because it’s so lightweight but also gorgeous and can be used for many other things. Pair with a fuzzy blanket, popcorn kernels, and an assortment of your favoite candy for the ultimate Netflix night.
Blush & Copper Bowl | Men’s Socks | Women’s Socks | Storage Basket
