In a recent post, we pointed out how the holiday season paired with engagement season can make for a lot of gift giving occasions. If, like us, you don’t want your gift giving to become monotonous, you probably turn to the many fun and fabulous artists, makers and boutiques in New Orleans. That said, even with such as wealth of options, it can sometimes be tricky to nail down just the right gift for someone or, like in the case of a wedding party, multiple people.
Enter, gift baskets.
The Basketry – based in Luling, Louisiana – has 19 different gift basket options in its wedding gift selection.
If you’re a bride looking for a bridesmaid ask present, but not sure what to include, The Basketry has an “Ask Gift Box” that includes soap, candies, a champagne flute and more. The bride can even choose the color scheme and personalize the champagne flute with her maid’s name on it.
Another box is the “Welcome Gift Box.” New Orleans is a popular destination wedding locale and guests from all over the country and world have flocked to the Big Easy to celebrate their nuptials. For the couple who needs to thank those out-of-town guests, or wants to put a little something special in their loved one’s hotel rooms, the welcome box is packed with New Orleans flavor and flair. The box includes Aunt Sally’s pralines, Kentwood water, Zapp’s chips and more local fare, plus a “hangover survival kit” that includes Emergen-C, Advil and Pepto Bismol. The welcome box is also great because The Basketry can include wedding itineraries, custom information or other things you may need to let your out-of-town guests know.
We love these boxes because they take out the guesswork. It makes the gifting personal, as you get to pick some of the items or the type of box, but someone else is doing the work for you.
Giving a gift can be an enjoyable task, but it can also add additional stress when you have countless other things to handle while planning your wedding. Now you can cross one more thing off of your list: Gift baskets — check!
