Decorative Gift Basket Ideas for the Holidays

Easy D.I.Y. Christmas Baskets They’ll Love

Finding the perfect holiday presents for loved ones isn’t easy. Think about it: with just a quick web search and a few clicks, the people on your gift list can get exactly what they want shipped to their door in less than 24 hours. How can you compete with that?

The solution is simple — give something that’s as thoughtfully presented as it is lovingly given. mDesign offers an extensive collection of boxes, bins, and baskets that do double duty as decorative gift containers and stylish storage solutions.

For the Office Mate

Whether work is in person, remote, or a hybrid version of the two, co-workers are key. Make them feel appreciated with something they need — office supplies — in a container they’ll love. mDesign’s Lumiere Drawer Organizers are stackable so you can create a customizable gift that dazzles. After the holidays are over, these durable, clear bins keep office drawers and desktops neat and tidy.

For the Foodie Friend

We all have that friend who loves trying world cuisine and trendy bistros. Why not give them a flight of gourmet olive oils for whipping up bread dipping mixes, salad dressings, or marinades? Present them in mDesign’s Lumiere Storage Caddy; it has four roomy compartments for olive oil bottles, utensils, herb packets, and small spice jars. Add mDesign’s Striped Kitchen Towel Set for a stylish color-coordinated accent.

For the Cool Dude

If the man in your life needs a little “me” time, send him off to his man cave with a basketful of great goodies guys love. mDesign’s Carson Wire Basket is perfect for holding his favorite holiday craft beers and tasty snacks like jerky, pretzels, peanuts, and chips. The metal structure, open top and built-in handles make this a go-to basket for storing and transporting manly stuff.

For the Pet Person

The way to a pet lover’s heart is a pet-friendly gift. If you’ve got a pet person on your gift list, fill a roomy bin — we like mDesign’s Kitchen Storage Organizer Bin — with toys and snacks for their fur-baby and pet-themed mugs, books, and ornaments for them.

For the Coffee Lover

Part of the fun of being a coffee aficionado is enjoying the rituals that go into making a good cup of joe. Our Hyacinth Nesting Basket is generously sized for holding French presses, moka pots, pour-over accessories, whole bean samplers, mugs, and more. This gift idea can be adapted for tea and cocoa lovers, too.

For the Health Nut

‘Tis the season for overindulging! To balance out all that cake and pie, consider giving the gift of fruit in one of mDesign’s Bamboo Organizers. Fruit favorites like oranges, grapefruits, apples, and pears are in season this time of year or you can use more exotic fare like pomegranates, kiwis, and kumquats. Once the fruit is gone, this natural bamboo bin looks great on kitchen counters, in breakfast nooks, or wherever you need stylish storage in your home.

Happy Gifting!
