Now I will be honest with you. Making gourmet gift baskets is not easy. It takes a great deal of time and creativity. If you are up for the task keep reading as I will share with you 5 tips to help you make the perfect gift basket for your dad this Father’s Day.
Tip #1 – Pick A Theme
This is where it all starts. What is it that your dad loves? What foods? What sports? What are his past times? Remember this is all about being creative. Don’t be afraid to do something unusual. Have fun with it and think of a theme you know your dad will love.
Tip #2 – Research, Research, Research
It can sometimes be difficult to find exactly what you want to put in the gift basket. That’s why research is so important. You have to be able to weed out the good stuff from the not so good stuff. And with so much trendy packaging out there doing so can be very hard. Research the products you want to include in the basket. Find out what ingredients they use. If it checks out order some to test it out. There is nothing worse than gifting food that tastes nasty. Start here with the top 10 selling chocolate bars.
Tip #3 – Find A Basket To Put Everything In
Once you have gathered up all the gifts you want to include you need to find a basket to put them all in. The good news is finding a basket is fairly easy. There are literally hundreds of different options for you to choose from. Just make sure whatever you choose is well crafted and sturdy. You also want it to work with the theme you have chosen.
Tip #4 – Include Extras
By extras I mean things that will make the gift complete. For example, if you give your dad a container of his favorite gourmet coffee why not also give him a mug to drink it in? If you give him tickets to go see his favorite team play why not give him a hat or shirt he can wear to the game? The extras are what really take the gift basket to a whole new level. Adding the extras will enhance the overall look and feel of the gourmet gift basket.
Tip #5 – Be Creative! Have Fun!
Listen, at the end of the day, this is about your expression of love towards your father. This gift doesn’t need to be perfect. Have fun with it and be creative. Trust me, your dad will love it no matter what. Just the fact you took the time to do something like this will bring a smile to his face. So go ahead, let your creative juices flow. Just remember this is about your dad and not you.
You want to put some of your personality into it but not too much. Keep the overall gift focused on dad and the things you know he will love and appreciate. This is your opportunity to really show your dad how much he means to you. Don’t let it go to waste.
You could also add a bottle of wine in the basket to really win some points.
