Winter-themed gift baskets are a creative way to personalise a gift for any winter occasion. The first thing to consider is the recipient: his personal interests, hobbies, food preferences and needs. The second thing to consider is the presentation of the basket. The container or "basket" does not need to be costly, but it does need to be cohesive and work with the rest of the items.

During the cold months of winter, a warming gift basket is ideal. Fill it with winter appropriate foods like cocoa mixes, peppermint sticks, miniature marshmallows, cinnamon cookies, gourmet coffee, holiday teas and coffees, winter snack mix, pretzels and dip. Non-food item ideas include mittens, hats, hot packs, moisturiser, mugs, tea pot, winter motif cookie cutters or a throw blanket.
Ski or Snowboard Gift Basket
Create a winter gift basket for someone who enjoys skiing or snowboarding. Include some basic items such as gloves, a warm hat, hot packs, sunscreen, moisturiser, lip balm and ski or snowboard waxes. A pass to the local ski hill is a great item to add to this gift basket as well.
Holiday Entertainment Basket
In a holiday themed basket, include useful items to entertain at a holiday party. Some options are napkins, plates, cups, baked goods, dips, mixed nuts, cheese, a sausage stick and crackers. Include appropriate ornamental items to complement the holiday theme. For example, a Christmas-themed basket can include candy canes, scented tea lights, pine cones, a holiday music CD, cinnamon sticks, greenery, spruce, pine, holly, cedar, ornaments and a small nativity scene. For a general holiday gift basket, include potpourri, hot cider, tea bags, special coffee, cocoa mixes, fruits, packs of roasted nuts and small puzzles or toys.
