Finding the perfect present for your daughter can be extremely difficult, especially as they grow up and start to develop new interests or hobbies. This being said, there is a special kind of present that is guaranteed to put a smile on their face – a gift basket! Creating a personalised hamper for your loved ones gives you the opportunity to pick more than one present and create a thoughtful experience that is great for any celebration.
If your daughter’s birthday is rapidly approaching or you’re still trying to find that perfect gift for Christmas, you’re in the right place. In this blog, we’ll teach you how to create the ultimate gift basket and twelve must-have items that you can’t afford to miss out on.
1. Beautiful Basket
First things first, you’ll need to find a beautiful basket that your loved one can reuse for something else after they’ve received their present. Don’t forget to purchase some tissue paper to help decorate the hamper.
2. Themed Items
One of the easiest ways to fill in your basket is by picking a theme and running with it. For example, if you’re thinking of making a gift basket for Christmas, you can buy lots of festive-themed goodies to help fill out the basket.
3. Speaker or Headphones
Who doesn’t love listening to music? Bluetooth speakers or wireless headphones are a great option for any daughter – no matter their age. Plus, you can find plenty of options to suit every budget imaginable.
4. Sweet Treats
Another easy item to include in your gift basket is a few sweet treats. You can either bake these yourself or pick up your daughter’s favourite from the store. Make sure to store them in a cool place and pack them last.
5. Makeup and Skin Care
If your daughter is into makeup or skincare, it’s never a bad idea to get a few products that she’s never tried before. For example, you can get here a scented body lotion in her favourite scent or a new eyeshadow palette in colours she often uses.
6. Hair Products
When it comes to hair products there are hundreds of different options you can choose from. Make sure to pick products that have high ratings and natural ingredients. You could also throw in something more luxurious like a hair dryer or pair of straighteners.
7. Cosy Pyjamas
There’s nothing more relaxing than slipping into a pair of cosy pyjamas at the end of the day. Pick a pattern, fabric, and style you know that your daughter will love. You can even match these with the theme of the gift basket.
8. Fun Slippers
Make sure to pick a pair of fun slippers that they can lounge around the house in. Since these are everyday items, people tend to go through them quickly. Purchase a brand new pair that they can lounge and relax in.
9. Scented Candle
Another great way to incorporate smell into your gift basket is by including a lovely scented candle. If you’re not sure what scent to go for, we recommend picking one that will match the season. Alternatively, you could get a few minis for them to try their favourites.
10. Gift Cards
If you want to make sure your daughter can purchase something they will love, there’s no better item to include than a gift card to their favourite store. Make sure to let them know whether it has an expiry date as you don’t want it to go to waste.
11. Interesting Book
Think of a book that they’ve recently mentioned or a topic that could interest them and add this to your gift basket. If your daughter’s a true reader, and you really want to go all out, you could even get them a Kindle.
12. Favourite Drink
Don’t forget to add a cute finishing touch by including their favourite drink. This could be a hot drink, such as gourmet tea packets specialist coffee beans, or even fun-sized alcohol bottles.
At the end of the day, you can take this gift as far as you like. Include as many items as you see fit, the choice is yours! Overall, it’s important to pick out items that your loved one will appreciate, such as their favourite snacks or drinks. However, it’s also a fun idea to incorporate items you think they should try. Find a balance between the two and create a memorable present that they will remember for years to come!
