Bountiful Baskets: Creating Perfect Gifts for Any Occasion
Bountiful Baskets: Creating Perfect Gifts for Any Occasion
by Sara Toliver

Add crafty touches to store-bought gifts!

When I first saw this book, I was skeptical. I've put together a few gift baskets, I thought to myself. But when I looked through the photos and read through the Basket Basics, I was hooked. The basket ideas are clever and charming. Most of her 'baskets' are not baskets at all: boxes, canisters, laundry baskets, buckets, a bread box and more! In fact, the projects are not traditional directions. This book is a collection of ideas and tips organized by occasion and recipient, punctuated with great photos. Each photo has a paragraph for a caption, explaining the gift basket shown and extra tips.

Let's go back to the beginning. The basics section starts with planning, brainstorming, and a list of basket theme ideas to get you started. Then onto the action: choosing a container and filling it. Several methods for creating the full, professional look are illustrated. The finished basket is covered in netting, cellophane or shrink wrap. Several pages show different embellishments, bows, and tags to complete your gorgeous gift basket.

The Basket Gallery is full of projects. It is divided into several sections: Gourmet, Spa, Feminine, Masculine, Baby & Child, Family, All Occasion, Professional, Get Well and Unique Baskets. After you've been inspired by the baskets, you will be ready to check out "Basket Business," the nuts and bolts of planning and running a professional gift basket business. There are several good tips on pricing and appealing to customers.

Gift baskets are a fun way to express your creativity in gift-giving. Now is a great time to start gathering items and ideas for the upcoming holidays.
