Candy and sweets are a popular selection, and for the best reaction, be very generous in portions. Others gifts might include cooking utensils, beverages or beverage cups, spices or snacks, recipe books, music CDs or linens. Some of the best custom gift baskets are designed according to a theme, whether a general one (such as romance or friendship) or a personalized basket based on someone’s personality. Custom gift baskets show the recipient that you took the time to shop for something special—something special for a dear friend.
