Great Breakfast Gift Basket Ideas

A breakfast gift basket is a great gift idea. Be it for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, housewarming or any other occasion, it will surely be a great way to start that special day.

Just as in making any other gift baskets, the first thing that needs to be done is to decide on the occasion or recipient of the gift basket. For example, if you are thinking of a breakfast gift basket as a wedding present, then you can make a ‘breakfast for two’ gift basket and include a bottle of champagne to mark the special event for the newly married couple. Similarly, if you are presenting the gift basket for your mom on Mother’s day, a ‘breakfast in bed’ theme will sure delight your mom.

Once you have decided on the theme and recipient, choose a nice container as the base for your gift basket. Among the suitable ones include a serving tray, wicker baskets, picnic baskets, wooden boxes and large mixing bowls. You can also use tote bags and even boxes, especially if you are making a gift tower.

Once you have decided on the container, simply pick and choose the breakfast food items and accessories or tools you would like to include in your gift basket.

Breakfast Gift Basket Ideas

Idea 1 – Breakfast in Bed gift basket
This makes a great pampering gift for someone special, or a special romantic gift for a newly married couple. Since it is meant to be enjoyed in bed, include a range of gourmet items that are the easy to prepare and do not require cooking. Among the things you can include are fruit juices, smoked bacon, a variety of scones and pastries, one or two bottles of jams/preserves, an assortment of cookies, and a packet of ground coffee and a selection of tea bags.

Idea 2 – Waffles Breakfast gift basket
Here is an excellent gift for someone who loves waffles. Include in the gift basket, a waffle maker, a few packets of waffles mix, a bottle of good quality maple syrup, a few bottles of jam/preserves and last but not least, a packet of ground coffee and a selection of breakfast teas.

Idea 3 – Breakfast for two gift basket
A breakfast for two gift basket is great as a romantic gift. Just like the name suggests, it is meant for 2 persons and therefore you need to make sure that the items that go into this basket are enough for 2 persons. Among the things you can include in this gift basket are chocolate drink mix, 2 personalized mugs, a selection of breakfast teas, an assortment of cookies, packets of pancake mix or waffle mix, one or two bottles of jams or preserves and 2 egg cups.

Idea 4 – English breakfast tea gift basket
A typical English breakfast will definitely not be without tea. Make a breakfast gift basket filled with a variety of loose leaf teas and tea bags. Also include a pretty 2-cups teapot with 2 matching cups and saucers and a tea strainer. Complement the basket with an assortment of cookies and packets of scones and waffles mixes. And last but not least, include a bottle or two of jams or preserves.

Idea 5 – Health conscious breakfast gift basket
This makes a perfect gift for a recipient who is very health conscious. Among the things you can include in this gift basket are a pitcher, fruit juices, packets of cereals and oatmeal, dried fruits and nuts and a selection of organic tea bags. You can also include some fresh fruits in the basket but be sure to add them just before you present the gift to ensure the fruits are still fresh when your recipient opens the gift basket.

Idea 6 – Breakfast tower
A gift tower filled with breakfast items is another great breakfast gift idea. All you need to do is to get hold of a set of boxes of the same shape and matching design ranging from small to big. Fill the largest box with muffins, scones and pastries. Fill up the rest of the boxes with other breakfast items such as assorted dried fruits and nuts, cereal and oats, jams and preserves and last but not least, packets of coffee beans or ground coffee and a variety of tea bags. Stack the boxes starting with the largest at the bottom and the smallest on top. Tie them all with a ribbon securely to make sure they do not tumble.
