How to Make Christmas Food Baskets

Send Christmas wishes by making friends and family a holiday food basket.


  • Step 1: Give a healthy basket Give a healthy basket filled with juicy oranges, red delicious apples, yogurt-covered almonds, organic crackers, and herbal tea. This is a great basket for a whole family.
  • Step 2: Make homemade foods Make a basket filled with homemade foods from your kitchen. Homemade chocolates, breads, and brownies are great choices. Package them in red boxes or in a basket lined with a festive napkin.
  • Step 3: Give wine Give the wine lover in the family a basket with an array of red and white wines. Add a corkscrew, cashews, crackers, and delicious cheeses.
  • TIP: Place all the items in a picnic basket and add a blanket.
  • Step 4: Please everyone with chocolate Please everyone on your list with a basket filled with chocolate. Add a chocolate Santa, double chocolate chip cookies, chocolate-covered cherries, chocolate-covered almonds, and two mugs with cocoa mix.
  • Step 5: Decorate Decorate any of these baskets with a simple red bow, or wrap in a clear or festive cellophane bag. Add the finishing touch by attaching a candy cane and a Christmas card. Merry Christmas.
  • FACT: Over 1.8 billion candy canes are made during the holiday season.
