Use our products for ideas to make your own or just shop from our store. Either way, be thankful by giving a gift of awesomeness.

If you want to make your own, here are several items you need to begin making a truly special gift basket:

  • Gift Boxes - Check out this great site that has some wonderful gift boxes. They have a wide selection and great designs.
  • Empty Woven Basket - I found this great page that has some really nice baskets.
  • Clear Plastic Shrink Wrap - here is a link to get some shrink wrap. This will be used specifically for the gift baskets.
  • Craft Gift Wrap Ribbons - For those of you looking to go with the gift boxes route (can be used for baskets too), click on the link to get some really nice ribbons that will give a beautiful accent to any of your gifts.
  • The Goodies - we have some great gift ideas below, but you know your family and friends better than we do. Pick out treats tailored to them, but to make the gift stand out, throw in something new and exciting! Something they've never tried before!

So without further ado, here are 10 Awesome Gift Baskets for this Thanksgiving!
