“Depending on what you intend to give as a Christmas holiday gift basket, the size of the basket must correspond to the items to be put in. The smaller baskets are good for food items such as chocolates which are individually wrapped or bars which are wrapped individually. Bigger baskets are great as a Christmas holiday gift basket for items such as fruit cakes, coffee beans etc.
Bows and Ribbons
Decorating a Christmas holiday gift basket with bows and ribbons is a standard thing to do. Most people who professionally decorate gift baskets will have the expertise to know that color coordination is handy to have for decorating Christmas holiday gift baskets. The more common colors that are used during the holidays are red, green and gold but other colors have been surfacing as long as they are depicted in the holiday motif. Silver is also one of the more commonly used colors during the holiday season. It adds sparkle to the season altogether as well as to the gift basket.
There are many different ways to tie bows and ribbons and you can experiment which ways look better with what kind of Christmas holiday gift basket. One can also have a combination of the more common Christmas colors as a bow depicting red, green and gold. One can also use glitter ribbons, satin finish ribbons and other cloth ribbons instead of the usual plastic ones in a store bought Christmas holiday gift basket.
Ornaments And Other Christmas Decorations
Ornaments found in Christmas trees and other Christmas decorations are handy to have in decorating a Christmas holiday gift basket. These add a touch of whimsy and a touch of the holiday season for many. Pine cones are just some of the more popular signs of the season as well as bells and stars. One can stick the ornaments on the bow’s base to make it seem like it is the one holding the bow together. One can also look for dried flowers colored in the seasonal colors as well as plastic red berries and holly leaves for the Christmas holiday gift basket.
Tinsels is something that one can add to the Christmas holiday gift basket to make it look more Christmassy. Tissue in the traditional Christmas colors and maybe a napkin (to cover the basket bottom when you are sending muffins or cakes) can add to the feel of the holiday season.”
