A Gift For Gifting


Today’s gift idea source comes from a gal after my own heart – Chelsea Penner had a lifelong talent for giving wonderful gifts, particularly spectacular gift baskets to commemorate good times and help others through tough times. So much so, her friends and family encouraged her to put her talents to work for the greater good, and thus, The Gift Box Shop opened its virtual doors. Today, the site is home to a bevy of pre-made baskets to celebrate milestones like the arrival of a new baby, provide easy options for mainstays like Father’s or Mother’s Day, or simply to thank someone for years of service with your company or for a big huge awesome favour. Today, I’ve handpicked three of my favourite baskets to give you a sampling of what The Gift Box Shop carries, for any gifting occasion you’re simply stuck for ideas on.

Father's Day Beer Can Chicken Gift Basket The Gift Box ShopBeer Can Chicken & Other Favourites Basket – $59.99After the wild success of my BBQ post the other week, I figured this one might be a hit as well. Instead of rushing around to find all the fixins’ for a finger-licking BBQ dinner, why not order this handy prepackaged basket, filled with everything you need (aside from the meat) to whip up a savoury meal of ribs, pulled pork, chicken pot pie, jacket potatoes and of course, a beer can chicken – among other items. Simply finish it off with a gift card to your local butcher and gift it to dad for his birthday, or to accompany that new grill your mom got him as an anniversary present.

Babys First Keepsake The Gift Box ShopBaby’s First Keepsake Baskets – $49.99 each
Baby gifts can be tricky to shop for. A lot of gals I know fret about how much to spend for showers, and there is no easy answer I can supply you with. If you’re simple not into picking out teeny tiny clothes and toys, or if you’re looking for a ready-made solution that’ll have every guest oohing and ahhing, The Gift Box Shop offers plenty of baby gift baskets to make shower gifting a snap. Join up with a friend and splurge on one the pricier options, and go solo with one of these gender-specific baskets filled with keepsakes that mom will treasure, and baby will still get some use out of (at least in the case of the adorable hand-crocheted booties included in each set).

Head to Toe Beauty Gift BasketHead to Toe Beauty Gift Basket – $129.99
Looking to splurge and pamper a special gal in your life? This bestselling luxury package includes spa-quality products to take care of a gal pal or spouse for eons. With professional tools to take care of your nails and makeup, lotions and potions to nourish your skin, hair, nails, and lips, you’ll look radiant in no time. I particularly love the idea of something like this as a stagette gift – have all of the guests chip in $5-$10 and presto, you’ve got a ready-to-go gift to share with the bride on her arrival.

Custom Basket The Gift Box ShopWhile there are plenty of ready-to-go baskets at The Gift Box Shop, maybe you’ve got a giftee with very specific tastes, or you have a particularly unique theme you’d like to capitalize on. If that’s the case, the site offers a super easy DIY option to mix and match food and drink, baby, spa, and other gifty items together into a package you customize from the ground up. Prices are completely dependent on what you order, and to that end, the site also offers yet another option where you can peruse individual items for more easy gift shopping.
