Nothing can beat great food and having fun in the sunshine. And if you are looking for a picnic gift, picnic gift baskets can be the best choice. You can of course buy a picnic gift basket from the market, but creating a basket by your own ideas and according to the recipient's liking, can be the best and ideal gift.

Basket Choose a powerful stylish basket with a handle for carrying. These baskets come in various shapes, sizes and colours with compartments. Consider the usage of picnic gift basket while selecting a basket. These baskets vary greatly in cost which can affect your budget. You can line the basket by using a cheery plastic tablecloth.
Contents Add some knives, spoons, forks and some serving utensils to the basket. You can also incorporate the basket with napkins and paper plates. Try to get a summer theme based basket while selecting the baskets. Add some healthy food to the picnic gift basket. Snack foods like potato chips, candy and cookies are the always preferred. Keep plastic containers of relish and mustard, catsup and pepper and salt shakers.
You can add food items like patties, hamburger, side dishes, hot dogs, deserts and drinks. You can take a print of some pictures related to picnic and place them on the basket. There are many stuffs to be taken on the picnic, but don't fill the basket with all those stuffs. If the basket is overweight, it will be difficult to take the basket to the picnic table.

Tie a bouquet of flowers on the top of the basket, before giving it to the receiver.
