Christmas gift baskets come in a variety of sizes and shapes and with a variety of contents. Often, instead of a regular basket, Christmas baskets are in shape of a sleigh, a stocking, a Christmas tree, or other seasonal icons. Some have themes such as .The Twelve Days of Christmas,. and contain twelve varieties of chocolates or coffees. Others have seasonal contents like gingerbread or peppermint candies.
In addition to a variety of contents, Christmas gift baskets come in a variety of price ranges, which can be important if you have a long list of people to shop for.
