If you're looking for an individual and thoughtful gift for the next wedding you attend, try a wedding gift basket. A wedding gift basket is a personal gift because you can choose what you put inside the basket. A great way to personalise the wedding gift basket even more is to decorate the basket especially for the happy couple, so that they can enjoy the basket as a keepsake.

White and Silver Ribbons

A great way to decorate a wedding gift basket is to wrap white and silver ribbons around the handle of the basket. White and silver are more traditional wedding colours. If you know the colour theme of the wedding, use that colour and white ribbons to decorate the basket handle. This will remind the happy couple of their wedding day for years to come. If your gift basket is made from wicker, you can wind the ribbon around the body of the basket for an extra special touch.


Decorate the inside of the wedding gift basket by using confetti rather than shredded paper or tissue paper in the bottom of the basket. Use traditional rice confetti, or more modern shiny coloured confetti if you prefer.

Include a Hanging Card

Make your own wedding card using glue, glitter, letters cut out from magazines, or any other items you can think of. Rather than just handing the newlyweds the card, make two hole punches in the top and tie the card to the handle of the wedding gift basket with ribbon. This will leave the happy couple with no doubts as to who the wedding gift basket is from.

Include the Wedding Theme

When decorating the wedding gift basket, bear in mind whether or not the wedding will have a theme, and include the theme in the decoration if possible. For example, if the wedding theme is Las Vegas, stick some random playing cards to the outside of the gift basket, or hang a pair of dice from the basket handle.

Finishing Touches

To allow the happy couple to see exactly what fun gifts are in their wedding gift basket, cover it with clear cellophane. If you want your gift basket to be a little more colourful, choose a clear cellophane with a tint to match the wedding colours or theme. Remember to keep it tasteful, and not to use too many clashing colours when decorating your wedding gift basket.
