Out-Of-The-Box Gift Ideas For The Person Who Seems To Have Everything

Morgan is a writer on the branded content team who loves breakfast food almost as much as she loves dogs.

When it comes to gift giving, nothing is more heartfelt than making something from scratch. Just thinking about how much time someone put into crafting your present is a gift in itself.

If you don’t want to make the actual presents from scratch, there’s always the option to get creative and build a gift basket. After all, who wouldn’t love a thoughtful, handmade basket stuffed with gifts? It’s a win-win!

Whether you’re shopping for your best friend who loves to garden or your mom who thinks she’s Martha Stewart, there’s a gift idea for everyone in your life. Even if you’re going to a white elephant gift exchange, you can make a spa day gift package that anyone would appreciate.

It doesn’t take a lot of effort or time to throw together these holiday gift baskets, and your friends will treasure the thought you put into them.

Check out the materials and instructions for the various gift baskets below, and make sure to SHARE these fun gift ideas with friends and family.
