Something that is always important to me is to gift thoughtfully. How many times have you been gifted something you really don’t need or know what to do with? 

I am always grateful for the thought and receiving a gift but I think it’s important to consider what the receiver may need or use. This eliminates waste, not just the trash kind but money wasted. 

Gift giving doesn’t need to be expensive or stressful. I love to spend time finding deals for products that are quality or that I can DIY. Coming from a background in retail buying I know that price doesn’t always mean quality.

That’s why I have put together these 3 unique Christmas gift basket ideas to help spark inspiration for your gift giving this holiday season. Wow your friends and family with some handmade sparkle this year!

These unique gift basket ideas are so much fun to put together. Ditch the wrapping paper and find a cute basket, some paper filler, dried moss or gardening coconut fibre to put inside the basket and some ribbon.

I found a range of rich coloured satin ribbons like these ones here to tie around each basket. It’s an inexpensive and pretty way to elevate these gift baskets.

1. Homemaking Gift Basket 

This gift basket is perfect for loved ones who may have a new home or are homemakers.

I know when I first moved out of home that this kind of gift would have been a life saver. It’s such a big step moving out and the little things are often over looked. Like forgetting pegs and only realising when you go to hang out your laundry for the first time!  

It’s special to receive things you wouldn’t often buy yourself so consider finding a linen tea towel over a regular one! These little touches add to the thoughtfulness of your gift.  

Why not gift some of those helpful items to someone you love this Christmas. 

For this gift basket you will need: 

  • Linen tea towel 
  • Stainless steel or wooden pegs 
  • Castile soap – I added the tea tree and fragrant free kinds. 
  • A handy glass spray bottle
  • Scrubbing brush
  • Wooden spoons
  • Face mask

A tip of mine is to visit stores like Trade Aid here in New Zealand to find unique, handmade gifts. Trade aid is a store that supports villages in third world countries. 

You can find beautiful pieces like the wooden spoons I included in this gift basket for a great price. Plus, you’re supporting communities around the world, how cool is that! 

Another idea is to gift this in a bucket of some sort, which would be super useful for cleaning or laundry!

Some more unique things you could add to this gift basket:

  • Mason Jars
  • Baking like cookies or fudge! 
  • A lovely ceramic mug 
  • Essential oils

2. Self-Care Gift Basket

Who doesn’t love a pamper day? Why not gift a Christmas basket filled with special handmade sugar scrubs in pretty mason jars. You can even find the gift tags in my resource library and print them off.

Add in a pretty scrunchie, which can be used to hold their hair back when using the sugar scrubs but also worn daily too! 

I always try to think about functionality when adding things into these gift baskets. Like adding a wooden spoon to scoop the scrubs out of there jars and a face cloth to rinse off with.
