Inimitable Drinks Basket Ideas and Gifts for Wedding | Wedding Diaries

When it comes to wedding gifts, the bride and groom have several options on their registry that it's difficult to choose. Why not combine a few of them in a gift basket?

The best wedding gift basket idea is a collection of items that both the bride and groom can relish as newlyweds or that they can use for years to come. Furthermore, because you got them a gift basket full of goodies they both can use rather than a single item that only the bride wanted, your gift is more likely to be enjoyed than other wedding gifts!

What is a Gift Basket?

A gift basket is a compendium of gifts that come in a single package. It typically includes food, beverages, and other items that the recipient will enjoy.

The baskets are usually adorned to display their contents, but they are also used to keep all of the gifts together nicely.

Gift baskets come in a variety of shapes and sizes; there is no limit to what you can put inside or how the basket itself will look! The extravagantness of your reusable gift basket depends on where you get it.

How do you create a wedding gift basket?

Making a wedding gift basket does not require you to spend a fortune. You can buy inexpensive gift baskets in bulk and then decorate and fill each one yourself.

Make a list of the guests to whom you will give a wedding gift to save time. Set a timetable so that the wedding gift baskets are fully prepared before the big day.

  1. If the original color of the baskets does not match the wedding theme, paint them.
  2. Insert items such as a wine bottle or jam jars.
  3. Fillers such as cutout papers or whatever else fits the wedding theme should be used.
  4. Fill the basket with a personalized card for added sentimentality.
  5. Fill the basket with flowers and other decorations to avoid having too much empty space inside.
  6. Wrap ribbon around the basket and epoxy details like beads or pearls, depending on the wedding.
  7. Allow the basket to be left open or wrap it in see-through paper or mesh fabric.
  8. If necessary, use the basket handle to add fabric strips or garlands.

What should you include in a welcome basket for out-of-town visitors?

Wedding gift baskets can serve as favors for guests to take home after the wedding. You can, however, use these gifts to greet your guests at your destination wedding.

When the guests arrive, there is usually a welcome party, or you can hand them these overnight guest gift baskets when they arrive at the hotel. Items that can be included in a wedding welcome basket include:

  • Unique wedding-related trinkets and souvenirs
  • Maps of the area and the wedding schedule for the week
  • Information on public transportation
  • Snacks and treats
  • Toiletries, first-aid supplies, and a sewing kit
  • robes or towels
  • boutonnieres and corsages
  • Gift certificates
