A Basket Case: The History of the Rock-Star Gift Container

Gift baskets, with their intricate weaves and bespoke contents, are a time-honored tradition woven through history and cultures. At Gift Baskets Overseas, we primarily talk about the goodies they contain, — but let’s take a moment to talk about the baskets themselves, not just the yummy stuff we pack inside them!
 

The history of gift baskets: a gift hamper in front of the Stonehenge.

 
Baskets have been around for ages, each one telling a story from a different time and place. They’re made from all kinds of stuff, like grass, leaves, and even pieces of clothing, depending on where they’re from. It’s like each basket has its own personality, shaped by the culture and history of its roots. So today, we’re not just going to tell about the treats inside; we’re going to dive deep and explore the baskets — where they come from, what they’re made of, and why they’re so special. Stick around, and let us uncover the magic that turns these simple containers into something much more meaningful.
