Happy Birthday to You!Written by Bob Bassett
With so many choices, it's almost impossible not to find a great birthday gift basket for anyone. For her there are spa gift baskets, full of luxurious lotions and bubble bath. For him there are fishing gift baskets, baseball gift baskets, and even golf gift baskets.
Birthday gift baskets are often full of goodies and treats and often contain a special centerpiece item such as a Teddy bear, picture frame, or lotions and soaps. Try to choose something that reflects personality of recipient. There are many themed gift baskets that may be more appropriate than a general purpose gift basket.
For instance, don't exclude a coffee gift basket for someone that really enjoys coffee just because you don't see it listed as a birthday gift basket. Children may appreciate a basket with a plush toy while an adult might prefer a gift basket with chocolate and a bottle of wine.
A birthday gift basket is a good choice for coworkers or employees, family, and friends. They are available in a variety of price ranges, so it is possible to choose something appropriate for your relationship with recipient without it being too extravagant (or too inexpensive).
