60 Best Holiday Gift Basket Ideas for Every Budget

We've found baskets with snacks to drinks and everything in between.

Part of what makes gift baskets so great around Christmas and Hanukkah is when the recipient gets to treasure-hunt through them to find exactly what goodies you packed inside. Whether they're full of food, booze, toys, or tools, gift baskets are always a safe bet for holiday shopping—especially when you handpick the items! So we rounded up the best 60 best gift basket ideas—just for you!

What makes a great gift basket?

A great gift basket is one that has a lot of thought put into it. Consider what your recipient is like: Does she love to paint? Is he the best baker you know? Does he have a way with tools? Is she a sweet tooth? Do they just really need to relax? Keep all of those things in mind when picking out a gift basket or filling one yourself.

Why do gift baskets make great gifts?

If you're on a budget, a gift basket can be a great group gift for which you and friends all chip in to buy it for someone special. It's also great for when you have an idea for a theme, but aren't sure what specific (and pricey) items to get. For example, if you have a recipient who loves a good spa day but you may not be able to afford to pay for her to sit in a sauna and get a massage, a spa-themed gift basket may be a good substitution.
