From the most exciting moments in life to the most difficult ones, a gift basket is a great way to let your friends and family know you’re always there. Here are perfect occasions to give a gift basket to a loved one.
Birth of a New Baby
The first few weeks home from the hospital are the hardest for new parents as they attempt to adjust to having a new baby in the home and keep up with everyday tasks like cooking dinner and cleaning. Gift baskets for families with easy-to-cook meals and snacks are a tremendous help, and adding a few extra comfort items for stress relief help both mom and dad find a moment to relax.
High School Graduation
Graduating from high school is an exciting event that marks the passing of an important milestone, but for students moving onto college, there is a lot to prepare for. Put together a gift basket with must-have college survival items, or help them splurge a bit with some of their favorite sweets while they still have some time to celebrate.
Illness, Injury, or Surgery
Dealing with an illness that won’t go away or recovering from an injury or surgery is enough to make anyone feel down in the dumps. For loved ones who are sick, make a get well basket with some sore throat drops, chicken noodle soup, and a new book or movie to help them pass the time in bed. For someone recuperating after an injury or surgery, sneak them a few of their favorite sweets, a couple of quick dinners, and some comfort items.
Time of Loss
If one of your loved ones has lost someone close to them, it can be difficult to come up with the right words to say. A sympathy gift basket with food or snacks, spa items, or tea is a great way to show you care. Consider writing a card and adding some flowers as well.
