It can be difficult to buy the right birthday gifts for many reasons. It becomes even more difficult if you don’t really know the person well that you’re buying for. The dilemma kicks up a notch when you’re invited to the birthday party of a woman you don’t know well. Unless you want to be remembered as the person that brought a terrible birthday gift to the party, you’ll need to get creative.
Birthday gift baskets can be the solution to your problem. These can be assembled with popular items whether you know the birthday girl well or not. Naturally, it’s better if you know something about the woman so you can choose the best items to go into her gift basket, but it’s not necessary in order to present a great gift basket.
First, decide on the size of the gift basket that you’ll be giving. If you can’t decide which is best, go with a medium size. This will be easy to fill and won’t seem too small or too ostentatious. Choose a basket that can be used as a part of the décor once the items have been removed. It becomes a gift that keeps on giving.
Specially baked goods, jams, jellies, preserves and serving ware for them can be great ideas for birthday gift baskets. If the woman you’re buying for enjoys a particular kind of wine, a gift basket of a couple of bottles of it along with a corkscrew and wine glasses will go over quite well. You can also add some cheese and crackers.
If you find out what the woman in question likes, you can be more specific with your selections. You can put together a special basket containing current bestsellers, DVDs that she likes, along with some popcorn and six pack of her favorite soda. Once you get started, you’ll be amazed at how creative you are.
