Would you like to get organized? (Of course you would!) Storage baskets can help you to accomplish that goal easily. Another nice thing about them is that you can see right into them — which eliminates the “out of sight, out of mind” phenomenon that’s such a hindrance to visual people.
Would you like some unique ways to package up your gifts? Baskets can help with that too. Take a random assortment of candies, coffees, gourmet goodies, bath items, or baby products (etc!) and group them together in a basket. Voila — a gift basket.
Of course, you can vary your gift baskets to include fun holiday themes and color schemes: Christmas gift baskets, Easter baskets, Valentine candy baskets, Halloween candy baskets…
Whatever your reason for wanting to have some baskets on hand, it’s wonderful if you can crochet or knit your own; you can create just the basket you want, in exactly the size you want, for exactly the occasion you’re celebrating — or for everyday use.
If you’d like to find an abundance of lovely basket patterns, tutorials and instructions, keep reading for bunches of links to different creative designs.
