Aside from the most popular use of creating your own gift basket or hamper for a unique Christmas Day present - baskets are great for plenty of other uses too. Perhaps you've got a basket collecting dust and it's never even crossed your mind that you can incorporate it into your festivities, or maybe you have the intention of buying a basket to achieve something a little bit different this year. Keep reading to find out our top 3 ways to use a basket this Christmas!
Fill a crate or basket full festive traditions to create excitement before the big day. Not only is it great fun to put together - but many parents state it keeps the children entertained in advance of preparing for Christmas Day (breathe a sigh of relief). Try filling your basket or crate with a selection of films, books, novelty pyjamas, hot chocolate, candy canes, games and crafts - all the good stuff for a truly magical Christmas Eve!
Hampers especially work well as Christmas storage because of the traditional value. Prop open the hamper lid and stack a range of presents inside the basket - not only does this add to the whole festive feel in the room, it's a great way to keep all the presents in one place. You can easily add ribbon and other crafts for that extra sparkle.
Ideally we'd have a Christmas tree in every room with the aim to replicate Santa's grotto, but sadly and realistically that's not going to happen. An easy way to take festive decorations from room to room (or to fill small spaces) is with a festive basket decoration. Place pine cones, berry picks, cinnamon sticks and candy canes inside a basket for the ultimate looking and smelling Christmas centrepiece.
