They say the kitchen is the heart of the home, so what better place to start when creating a fall gift basket?
You can include both useful items and tasty treats. Start with a black metal or wicker basket that doubles as a fruit-bowl once empty.
Include a decorative fall-themed towel, dish rag, or potholder. Cloth napkins and placemats make great additions to any kitchen or Thanksgiving spread.
Add a seasonal mug with a whimsical or funny catch-phrase on it. Cinnamon or pumpkin-spiced tea makes the perfect compliment.
You can also include a small candle or bar of soap with a fall fragrance like apple or cinnamon for a touch of warmth and charm.
For a boo-tiful basket, why not create a Halloween-themed masterpiece? If your loved one goes crazy over Halloween, you can surprise and delight them with a spooktacular basket.
No Halloween is complete without some sweet treats. Include the recipient’s favorite candy or some holiday classics like candy corn and mini-chocolate bars. Get crafty and decorate candy bars to look like mummies, ghosts, and other frightful (yet delightful) characters.
Sugar cookies shaped and decorated like pumpkins, bats, or even black cats are both fun and eye-catching. If your loved one enjoys baking, gift them the cookie cutouts, dry ingredients, and edible decorations to cook-up their own delicious creations.
For families with kids, include some fun-shaped gummy candies or small stuffed animals that complement the Halloween theme.
Fall Fragrance Basket
There’s something undeniably appealing about fall scents. Crisp apple, warm cinnamon, and (of course) pumpkin spice are some all-time favorites.
When it comes to fall gift basket ideas, creating one based on your family or friends’ favorite scents just makes sense (see what we did there?) The best part is, you can put whatever spin you want on this creative DIY basket idea.
Everyone knows someone that loves collecting bath and body products. From bath salts and lotions to exfoliating face masks and soaps, there are plenty of rich and warm fall fragrances and products to choose from.
Create a basket filled with different bath and body items that will envelop the recipient in their favorite smells all day long!
Another fragrance basket idea includes candles — and lots of them! Jarred, votive, and pillar, oh my! There are countless types of candles to choose from in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors.
Decorative candle holders make a great addition to any fall basket idea. You can also include incense or wax discs as a different way to enjoy your favorite fall scents.
Playful Pumpkin Basket
Nothing says fall quite like pumpkins. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice, and pumpkin carving are all synonymous with the fall season. For the pumpkin-lover in your life, this fall gift basket idea tops the list.
Start with a pumpkin-shaped basket to hold all your goodies. The recipient can use it later on as a decoration or for handing out Halloween treats.
Every good pumpkin-themed basket needs a pumpkin carving kit! Most kits come with all the necessary items including a carving knife, pumpkin scooper, and patterns for creating impressive designs and faces.
Pumpkin-spiced tea or flavored coffee is the perfect way to warm up on a cool autumn morning or night. Include a variety of flavors to please everyone’s pumpkin pallet.
A pumpkin-shaped ceramic mug or travel mug lets your loved one take their delicious drink on the go. Hayride, anyone?
All Things Apple
Apples are another fun and delicious fruit associated with the fall season. Why not create a fall gift basket around this sweet treat?
Apple picking is a favorite family past time once the cool weather rolls in. The only problem is, what do you do with all those apples? After all, you can only make and eat so much apple sauce.
A caramel apple kit is a fun and delicious way to use up all those apples. A fun twist on this classic idea is gifting a jar filled with unwrapped caramel candies and topped with a delicious apple. Now, your loved one can simply pop the jar in the microwave for easy and mess-free fun!
Include one of these caramel kits in your fall basket along with an apple-scented candle to complete the theme.
If you’re giving a fall gift, why not embrace the season and say thank you with a Thanksgiving-themed basket?
There are so many ways to show your love and gratitude during the fall-season. Include a book of inspirational or motivational quotes. You can also add decorative towels, cloth napkins, or even a table runner with a sentimental phrase stitched right into the fabric.
Personalize a mug, candle, or ceramic centerpiece that reminds your loved one of you all year long.
Be sure to add some tasty fall treats, too. Popcorn kernels, cookies shaped like autumn leaves, and trail mix filled with nuts and dried fruit are all universal snacks that resemble fall fun.
