DIY Holiday Gift Baskets with Partake
The Partake team loves a personalized gift. What a great way to show the fam we care about them! Customizing a gift ensures that the recipient will use and enjoy the gift—no returns required! To get your wheels turning, we’ve put together a few suggestions based on how we’re building our own, personalized gifts this year.
A few starter tips:
- Choose themes like their favorite color or favorite hobby.
- What do they need right now? Create gifts that focus on “me time,” a movie night, or another special occasion.
What’s their flavor? We like to build our baskets around people’s preferred flavor profiles! This way, the items are easy to find and your loved ones are bound to appreciate a basket full of their favorite treats. Read on for our favorite flavor themes:
An Indulgent Holiday - Chocolate Peppermint Basket
For your loved ones who prefer their chocolate with a bit of added pizazz, create a basket centered around everyone’s favorite holiday flavor—Chocolate Peppermint .
Step 1: Head to your favorite hobby store (we suggest Target) to pick up a wired basket, ribbon and some crinkle paper. Keep in mind holiday colors and the theme of the basket when shopping to ensure an aesthetically pleasing end result.
Step 2: While in-store, head to the candle aisle! Look for a candle with notes of rich chocolate, subtle rosemary or a crisp scent like mint, eucalyptus or peppermint.
Step 3: Grab a mason or crafter jar with a lid to fill with your favorite chocolate chips. Though our Chocolate Peppermint cookies have chocolate chips in every bite, there is no such thing as too much chocolate!
Step 4: Now, let’s put the basket together! Fill the wire basket to the top with crinkle paper. We suggest using two colors to make the basket really pop! Add your scented candle in the wire basket, your jar of chocolate chips and our Chocolate Peppermint cookies.
Step 5: Finish with some peppermints, a hand-written card on top and a ribbon to seal in all the holiday joy.
If this sounds like the perfect gift for your loved one, head to your local Target store or shop on Partake for Chocolate Peppermint.
Fudgy and Fresh Baked - Brownie Basket
For the loved one who prefers their treats homemade, you know the one who always asks “What’s for dessert?”, after dinner or sometimes before, nothing screams decadent like our warm, chocolate filled Brownie Mix.
Step 1: Head to your favorite hobby store, we love Michael's! Pick up a wired basket, ribbon and some crinkle paper (we suggest red and gold).
Step 2: Grab a mason/crafter with a lid to fill with your favorite chocolate chips and another jar to fill with melted fudge. Our Brownie Mix is known for rich chocolate in every bite. But this recipient probably wants more chocolate to sprinkle and drizzle on top!
Step 3: Now, let’s put the basket together! Fill the wire basket to the top with crinkle paper, for better results mix the two colors of crinkle paper together prior to adding to the basket. Add your jar of chocolate chips and fudge and a pack of our Brownie Mix.
Step 4: Finish with a hand-written card on top and a ribbon to seal in all the sweetness!
If this sounds like the perfect gift for your loved one, head to partakefoods.com to grab Brownie Mix this holiday season.
