10 Gorgeous DIY Gift Baskets Ideas For Christmas

10 diy gift basket ideas for Christmas

DIY gift baskets are some of my favorite presents to give to friends and family. Partly because I have a lot of fun putting them together (I’m easily entertained) but mainly because I think they make for more unique and personal gifts.

I was looking for some new gift basket ideas online yesterday and I came across so many gorgeous projects that I couldn’t resist sharing a few with you! I know some of them are not technically ‘baskets’ but I think this only makes them more interesting really :)

I’d also love to know – what would go in YOUR ideal Christmas gift basket?

    These are gorgeous and you’re right so much more personal than buying a shop assembled one. I have someone in mind for a ‘just add icecream’ inspired box and I love the Paris one.
