Step 2: add your gifts to your basket

Prior to this step, you should have already brainstormed on what items to add to your hamper. The gifts you add should take into account what the person likes, what they need at the moment and of course how much you’re willing to spend. Lay your gift box or gift basket with some shred paper to act as a base.

Picture: this is an example of items I purchased to build a hamper for my mum, based on the things she likes.

Step 3: decorate you hamper and wrap

After adding the items into your gift box or gift basket, you might want to add some romantic touch to your hamper. Got ahead and sprinkle some flower petals on top of the items. You can also distribute loose chocolate pieces into your hamper. Then place your hamper into your cellophane bag and tie with a ribbon.
