Assembling a Christmas Gift Basket
Wine is always a good gift -- look for a bottle with a special holiday label or flavor. Wrap the wine in a pretty bag for a glamorous presentation that's sure to impress.

Candles are always a festive gift,
especially around the holidays.
Gift soaps are lovely treasures that we hesitate to buy for ourselves. Purchase a box of several, and wrap them individually when you need a quick present. Pair them with a holiday hand towel for an extra thoughtful gift.
Who doesn't like getting a box of their favorite candies? A small box with sumptuous chocolates works as well as a larger one with a less-than-appealing assortment.
Picture frames with a photo of you and the host or a thank-you note inside show that you put thought into your selection.
Holiday music CDs are always appreciated, as are bath salts and oils in a soothing scent. What a perfect way for your host to unwind after the party!
Coasters make a lovely present. Select ones that match your recipient's decor or that have a holiday theme.
Now that you have your gifts assembled, we will show you some great Christmas wrappings you can put them in that you can make yourself. We'll get started with gift bags in the next section.
