I love giving gift baskets as gifts. They make for awesome gifts because you are able to combine several gifts into one big present and they all correlate together to form a common theme.
This year for Christmas, I made my brother-in-law and his fiance a gift basket that consists of a “date night”. They have a two-year-old and aren’t able to go out and do the things that they once could. They are both so busy with work and school that I don’t remember the last time they were able to take some time for themselves and have a night out!
In the gift basket, I put three gift certificates. One of these gift certificates was for $40 and is for their favorite restaurant: Applebee’s. The second gift certificate is for $20 for the movie theater in town so they can see a movie together. The third gift certificate is for a “night of babysitting and a sleepover” for their son to come stay at our house for the night so that they can have a night off and enjoy their date. Also included in the gift basket is two bottles of wine and a candle. I can’t wait to see their faces when they open this amazing gift on Christmas morning! They are going to love it!
