Gift basket containers come in many different shapes and sizes, "gift baskets" of course being just one option. Once you’ve decided on a theme or an overall idea for your basket be on the lookout for some unique gift containers. The more unusual gift containers you choose, the more unique and different your gift baskets will be.
Mix and Match
Most gift basket containers can be kept and used afterward so try to think of unusual gift containers that match your theme, look attractive and are also practical.
Many gift containers, like for instance a toy caddie, a keepsake gift box or even a sports bag can all be personalized even more by adding the recipients name to the container itself.

It's the home of the Longaberger Company Headquarters, an American family owned business in Ohio that makes handcrafted maple wood baskets and other products for the home.
The building is based on the shape of their biggest selling basket which is called the "Medium Market Basket" and it's also a well known landmark.
Not hard to see why, it's amazing!
