Gift baskets are a great idea for many different occasions such as graduations, birthdays, engagements, weddings, welcome to the neighborhood gifts, or housewarming gift ideas. Here is an example of how you can create a gift basket using a particular theme. For this theme, it will be for a newlywed couple moving into their first home together, sort of a combination wedding and housewarming gift. As part of our theme, all items must be the color teal because you know this is color they are using to decorate their home. Be sure to keep the size of all items in proportion with the size of your basket. When finished choosing items, place them all in a wicker or straw type basket, or even use something such as a large laundry basket to hold the items. We’ve used Zazzle as a source for our teal housewarming gift basket ideas that are sure to bring a smile when presented to the recipients.
