A unique gift basket is sure to make a memorable impression. A gift basket is appropriate for almost every occasion, and with such a wide variety, it's possible to find something truly individual.
Some unique gift baskets focus on a specific location or event. Gift shops in tourist locations often have gift baskets with a selection of local foods and possibly tshirts or other souvenir items. For events, there are gift baskets with Mardi Gras themes and St. Patrick's day themes. There are also gift baskets to benefit certain causes where a percentage of sale from basket goes to a charity. Contact your favorite charitable organization for information on whether they have any gift basket programs.
Another use for a unique gift basket is a company promotion. Small gift baskets can be given away at trade shows and to prospective clients. Some retailers can create custom gift baskets around a certain theme, so you may be able to include items customized with your corporate logo. A gift basket of your products may be appropriate if your company sells bath items, for instance. For service based industries, a basket of cookies personalized with your logo is a unique conversation piece.
