The truth is there is no exact or one way to present your cookie gift basket.  In fact, the possibilities for your basket are endless.  If ever you run out of quirky concept or plan, the styles below can help you:

 

1. A traditional gift basket is common.  It is easy and fun to make too.  Plus, you can purchase decorative baskets from any craft store near you.  Lay a piece of fabric at the base of your basket.  Next, place your cookies inside plastic bags.  Tie the bags with colorful ribbons.  Place the plastic bags in the basket.  That’s it.

 

2. You can entertain or amuse your friends with your cookie basket.  You might want to use tin cans or toy drums for friends who are musically-inclined.  If you want, you can wrap the cookies with a music sheet.

 

3. If you are into combining colors, you might want to try layering your basket wrapper.  Cut out designs or forms on the outer layer after you have wrapped the basket with your base layer.  For example, use a black paper as your base layer.  Then on another orange paper, cut out Halloween icons such as pumpkins, witches, etc.  Wrap the orange paper around the black paper to see the effect.  Cool, huh?

 

4. You don’t need to use a basket all the time.  You can use other ideas such as toys wagons, wheelbarrows or baby bath tub if the occasion needs it.  For baby shower gift, you can fill a baby tub with rubber duckie cookies.  For a beach themed party, you can go for pails with cookies inside.  These are cute ideas and you can invent as many “basket” ideas as you want.

 

5. If you are going for a simple presentation, you can just wrap your basket with clear cellophane.  This way, your assortment of cookies can still be seen.  Tie the cellophane with cute and colorful ribbons to create a contrast.  Better yet, turn fabrics into ribbons.  This idea allows you to incorporate fun patterns to your gift basket.

 

6. For intermediate bakers, you can create cookies shaped like flowers.  Put craft sticks into your dough before you bake them to add “stems” to your cookie flowers.  As soon as your cookies are cool enough, frost them to add colors to your flowers.  Prepare your cookie basket by placing a florist’s foam.  Carefully stick and arrange the cookies to make them look like a bouquet.  Cover the revealed foam to make the presentation more believable.
