How to Create a Gift Basket for the Holiday Season

  • Basket. Find a basket that best suits your personality or whom your gifting it to. I personally opted for a rose gold color because it has a festive touch.
  • Wine. Wente Vineyards has a wide selection of wines to chose from this holiday season. As a result, you can easily find you’re go to.
  • Chocolate. Adding chocolate to a gift basket is always a brilliant idea.
  • Candle. While it may not appear to be fall in Southern California it certainly is in other states. This is the season to burn candles while sipping your favorite cup of wine from Wente Vineyards.
  • Socks. A pair of fuzzy socks are staple in any women’s wardrobe. I suggest finding a festive pair to toss on the gift basket.
  • Sponge. If you’re going to be using the gift basket for a guest during the holidays purchase a small sponge. Your guest will later thank you and feel welcomed.
  • Ornament. To finish setting the holiday theme add a unique ornament for your host or guest to use on their Christmas tree.

    Thank you for these awesome suggestions on what to include in a Christmas gift basket. I like the idea of adding a special ornament. That would make the occasion really special and memorable, for as long as you can hang that ornament on the Christmas tree, your gift will always be treasured.

    You put together such a nice gift basket. Any recipient of that gift would truly appreciate it. I like the idea of adding a special item, like that ornament. Makes the gift more personal, especially if the ornament was hand made by the giver.
