At The Basketry, we’re excited to announce our 26th birthday! We’ve been working hard to prepare for our celebration, Black Friday, and the upcoming holidays. If you’re in need of a custom gift box, look no further.

For almost 3 decades, we’ve been a leading provider of custom gift boxes in New Orleans. We love making each custom gift box fit the needs of our client and the gift recipient, and we have nearly unlimited styles, themes, snacks, and gifts to choose from.

How to Select Your Perfect Custom Gift Box

Finding the perfect gift for someone you care about or even a work colleague as a formality can be challenging. Here are some questions to ask that can help you decide what custom gifts should be included in your basket:

  • Who is the gift box recipient? First and foremost, you’ll want to take into account who the gift recipient is and what they like. Consider the unique tastes of the gift recipient and select items to go in your custom gift box that match.
  • What is the occasion? Your custom gift box should fit the occasion, whether it’s a birthday, a new baby celebration, or a virtual meeting gift.
  • What is practical? Gift boxes are intended to be fun and lighthearted, but you should also think about what’s practical. For example, a delicious nut selection is unlikely to be a good choice for someone with a peanut allergy. Or, a very expensive custom gift box might not be appropriate for a work meeting or employee gifts.
