Have a movie buff on your list? There are some great movies available for $4-5. Throw in some microwave popcorn, some seasoning or toppings and you have a yummy snack. You can also put some of their favorite candy and a drink. If you want to add to the theme, you can get a gift card to the movie theater.
For your favorite chef or baker, start with a mixing bowl or casserole dish instead of a basket. Add a cute kitchen towel, some measuring spoons, cups and a good spatula for hours of fun in the kitchen. Some additional items could be baking mixes, pot holders and even a cookbook.
Maybe you want a spa basket for mom or your best friend. Lotions, body sprays, and scrubs (which you can make yourself!) are a good start. You can add some foot scrub and a comfy pair of aloe infused socks , too. Throw in a candle and some bubble bath to really add to the relaxation theme.
Your favorite crafter will appreciate a thoughtful gift basket from you. Depending on what they like to make, you can give a glue gun or glue sticks, ribbon or fabric, or jewelry making supplies. A gift card to a craft or hobby store is a nice addition to this gift basket. Search online for some craft ideas, print them out and include these in a folder or small binder for a personal touch.
Teenagers can be hard to buy for, but there are some ideas for them, too. Ear buds or headphones are always a good idea. Shampoo, aftershave, perfume or cologne are nice things to fill in a basket for teens. Books or DVDs can be added to fit your teen’s preferences. Gift cards for music or fast food are also great for young people on the go.
Kids like toys, but even children can have fun with a cute basket. Find a blanket or pajamas with their favorite cartoon character on it. Grab a DVD or two of cartoons. A coloring book and crayons could be added to the basket, as well as a card game.
For the book lover on your list, think outside the book box! Yes, books and gifts card will be a great start, but you can also set the reading mood. A cozy blanket and reading light would be great. A cute mug with their favorite tea or coffee would be a nice addition to the basket for the reader on your Christmas list.

Go with what you know works!
