50+ Thoughtful gift ideas for the last minute shoppers

Are you a last minute shopper or still trying to find that perfect gift for the perfect person? Buying the right gift can be challenging if you’re on a budget, but you still want a thoughtful, quality gift. Perhaps price is no object but you just can’t seem to decide on which gift(s) to go with.  Well you’ve come to the right place, prepare to be inspired.

If you’ve never composed a gift basket, that’s okay. It’s pretty simple in fact. There are 3 easy methods to help you succeed.

1. Find the items you wish to include. When considering what to buy, consider items of like colors or items that share a similar theme (i.e. Movie baskets, Wine lovers, Fishers, Chefs, Spa, Golf, etc.).

2. Buy the container or basket last or take it with you while shopping. Once you have the items you will include, then you know how much space it will take to fill, so it’s always easier when you get the container after finding the items. If you have larger items you may want to  go with a deeper or taller container.  I’ve found that shallow and wide containers are more visually appealing for holding multiple smaller items.

3. Wrap it all up and slap on a bow. Using the same plastic used for wrapping Easter baskets works well. Put a bow on it. Drop it in a box and wrap it. Voila you’ve made a DIY gift basket.

So if you’re still not convinced on how easy it can be, enjoy these inspirations below from fellow D.I.Y.ers.
