Forget about shopping the crowded department store aisles, which may involve a drive to find just the right basket. Instead, why not put together a delicious coffee gift basket filled with items such as gourmet coffee beans, espresso machines, flavored coffee beans, and specialty coffee flavors? What a thoughtful, romantic, and useful gift!

Full Of Surprises

If you are looking for something a bit different, then why not make a wedding gift basket filled with delicious snack treats? Your guests will love to get a sweet treat when they come to visit you and the newlyweds. You can put together a fabulous selection of chocolates, candies, nut butters, cinnamon twists, mini-muffins, bagels, cookies, brownies, fruit leather chips, kettle chips, or fresh fruit platters – and do not forget the bottle of wine to go along with the snacks! Add some personalized votive candles, a bottle of champagne, and your favorite bottled water to enhance the snacks.

Replete With Delicacies

Another great wedding gift basket idea is a pancake breakfast gift basket. To make this one, you will need to purchase a nice waffle maker, mini muffin trays, mini angel food cake, waffles, and a bottle of wine or champagne. First, place the trays in the waffle maker and then drizzle over a little bit of butter. Place the trays in the oven for about five minutes. Then, take the bottles of wine or champagne and place them on top of the trays. Wait until the cakes are done to serve.

Assorted Chocolates

A wonderful wedding gift basket idea for the newlywed couple is a New Year’s Eve party treat. You will need to find a box of assorted chocolates, a bottle of Sangria, a bottle of tequila, a New York Style Winegarandy, some mints, and an assortment of other items. Wrap the box in cellophane and tie with a very nice ribbon. Ask the bride and groom to make their own personal cellophane bags for the contents of the box. Then, give each guest three different containers of each of these items.

Very Creative

Do you have a crafty bride and groom in your life? If so, there is no reason why you should not provide them with a very unique wedding crafts gift box. This can be accomplished by creating homemade coasters out of chocolate covered pretzels, almonds, raspberries, or other sweet treats. Add a personalized tag that says something along the lines of “Mickey and Minnie made this for you” and your happy couple will be delighted. You will also need to find inexpensive paper or card stock to cover the box, a metal spatula, a large cookie cutter, home decorating tools, and a few rubber bands.

A Wholesome Choice

For the happy couple to savor, there are many fun ideas for this basket that will make it very memorable. Fill the basket with several different types of dried fruits such as dates, pears, peaches, and strawberries. A bride can also add a layer of toasted almond or hazelnuts on the bottom. Other great choices for dried fruits include raspberries, strawberries, and pineapples. There are many other items that can be added into a basket such as a nice selection of nuts, mini muffins, vanilla scented candles, specialty chocolates, or even small stuffed animals such as ducks or puppies.

Wrapping Up

If you would rather offer an edible wedding gift basket full of savory items, then you should look into various Mexican food and drink items such as tamales, quesadillas, nachos, dips, and more. These are a great option if you are trying to match a theme that is centered on Mexican culture or ingredients. There are many different ideas that are offered by different baskets, which is a great way to get the gift that is perfect for the couple.
