Everyone loves a gift basket! They're great for almost any occasion, especially a bridal shower! The bride-to-be is about to embark on a new adventure as one half of a married couple, and is sure to appreciate the thought behind a gift basket made just for her. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Give the movie lover a night in with her new hubby! In a large popcorn bowl or ceramic popcorn container, add a couple of packages of microwaveable popcorn, a popcorn seasoning, a classic movie treat such as red licorice and, for the finale, a doubleheader of two DVD rom-com favourites. Add a bottle of wine for an extra-special treat.
The memory-keeper bride will have a lot to document over the next little while, so give her a gift to help her out! In a large basket, pull together all the supplies for a bridal shower album or wedding album. Be sure to include a scrapbook album, several alphabet stickers, paper in her wedding colours, wedding-inspired cut-outs, a heart-shaped punch and sheets of appropriate stickers.
For the chef — or at least the chef in the making — give a gift to further encourage her culinary pursuits. For the herb enthusiast, wrap up three small terracotta planters, three herb seed packets, a hand spade, a gardener's guide to growing herbs and a recipe book. For the gadget queen, package several gadgets she's sure to appreciate, such as a mushroom brush, a small whisk, a nutcracker, wine stoppers, an egg slicer, a pasta measurer, a cherry pitter, candy thermometer and fun-shaped ice cube moulds. For other ideas, consider a baker's basket, an Italian cuisine basket or BBQ favourites basket — or whatever else you can imagine.
If the bride-to-be is moving into a new home or if she's a do-it-yourself kind of girl, this gift is something fun and different. Fill a tool box with a hammer, various screwdrivers, a picture hanging kit, wrenches, a laser tape measure, general adhesive and a DIY guide to home repairs.
Whether it's purple or not, the bride-to-be might just love a specific colour! If so, create a perfect gift basket with her colour choice in mind. Add candles, candle holders, towels, room sprays, vases, soaps or any other accessory in her favourite colour. Wrap them in a basket with the tissue and ribbon in the same colour theme.
