Gift baskets created for joyous times reign in popularity.
However, gift baskets made in tribute of those who’ve recently departed also need your masterful touch to celebrate a well-lived life.
You can design bereavement baskets in any way you choose. In fact, you can specialize in making them because just as there are new lives born every day, death also arrives at the same pace.
That means you will have customers requesting gift baskets to mark each occasion, and if you make gift baskets as a hobby, you can also create a signature style for each event.
The bereavement gift basket design you see above appeared on the cover of The Gift Basket Design Book, first edition (now in its second edition).
- Lemon scones mix
- Cup and saucer
- Sugared tea spoon
- Gold-plated tea spoon
- White cloth napkin
- Picture frame with my maternal grandmother’s photograph
White shred and faux flowers finish this special gift designed in a medium-sized, red oval basket sprayed at the top edge with a brushed gold color.
