How to Make a Perfect Gift Basket

Giving gifts can be challenging. Most of us have a lengthy list of people in our lives deserving of unique presents this holiday season. What can we do?

With the holiday season just around the corner, we're putting together our insider tips to putting together your very own gift basket! Gift baskets offer a break from the usual gift routine of flavored popcorn and gift cards. By assembling your own gift boxes, you can give a meaningful gift without spending an arm and a leg.

Here we go!


1. Choose a recipient

Ask yourself: who is this gift basket for? A friend? Coworker? A neighbor or cousin? This will help decide the budget and theme of your perfect gift basket!

2. Set a budget

Let's be reasonable here. You have a long list of people in your life to give gifts this holiday season. By following this step, you will show the special people in your life that you care - without breaking the bank!


3. Pick a theme

Let the fun begin! Choosing a theme for your gift basket will help you choose gifts that connect to one another. This can also help your gift basket have a more cohesive appearance! 


4. Select your gift items

Once you have your gifts gathered up, arrange them like you would a fresh handful of wildflowers. Grab some bold-colored tissue paper or butcher's paper and fill in the voids with some color and texture!


6. Gift it!

This is the best part. Gift it!


Now, here is one of our very own creations that we deemed suitable for every angler in the state of Montana!


Our very-own gift basket is compiled with every memory of what could go wrong when fishing in Montana. Forgetting where the fishing access is, well is a pain in the you know what. In order to help you remember, we have a plethora of near-identical signs that are wonderful for the home or the man/woman cave. After a long day of catching nothing on the river, you'll need a drink. Not only will the cup have an opener and keep your drink cool, but the hat will help you crack a cold one while keeping the sun out of your eyes. That's obviously a better catch! 

Now tying your line and getting your set-up all dialed in will need some tools. Its never fun when you leave your gear either at home or in the car, so this Montana wood-carved multi-tool will be a great asset to have. Along with the tool, we have a wonderful leather fly-book that will keep even your most prized flies safe and stored in a fancy style! 

The opportunities are endless with Gift Baskets from Montana Gift Corral!
