Tips on How to Assemble a Gift Hamper
Gift baskets are the best holiday presents

As early as November, most of us are already worrying about gift ideas for friends and family members—as much as possible, we want to give them something thoughtful and special, without going through the hassle of dragging ourselves from one shop to another looking for the perfect present. It’s a good thing that gift hampers came into existence, so we can put together an ensemble of various items in a well-crafted basket which will have the recipient gushing in no time. According to the Street Directory, the hamper, the budget, and the imagination are the only limits to what can be included in a gift basket.

Here are a few tips on how to assemble a gift hamper for the holidays:

· Don’t be afraid to mix and match. Eclecticism in the selection of items for the hamper will get you far, and will add a personal touch. Take inspiration from the Family Christmas Hamper from Marks and Spencer, which was described by Red Online as one of the best for the holidays—wine, Genoa cake, and biscuits all in one gift. Inclusions should depend on the personality of the recipient.
· Be creative. Presentation is crucial, so as not to appear hurriedly made. We can add flowers to the basket, or customize the hamper with paintings or pictures. Colored bows, reindeer figures, or wreaths will bring a festive vibe to the hamper. A color scheme that follows the overall theme (for example, earth tones for a gourmet gift hamper) will also look nice.
· Fillers can make a difference. Random small items to make the hamper full will also be a delight. Purple Trail gave a few ideas for fillers: some Hershey’s Kisses, candy canes, or coffee beans will add warmth to the basket. Peanuts in shells or colorful party supplies can also be attractive.

The joy in assembling gift hampers will be reflected when they’re given to our friends and loved ones.
