Original retirement gift basket ideas can be found on DesignItYourselfGiftBaskets.com and Gift-And-Gift-Basket-Ideas.com. Both sites list unique gift baskets with detailed instructions for the contents and look.
DesignItYourselfGiftBaskets.com offers a catalog of themed baskets with pictures. For example, the site offers a movie gift basket that contains Dolcetto Chocolate Wafer Squares, Act II Popping Corn, and other treats. Instead of purchasing a basket from the site, you can use the pictures and descriptions as inspiration to make your own baskets. If you want to purchase a basket but don’t like any of the standard retirement gift basket designs, you can order a custom, personalized basket using the site's Design It Yourself System.
Gift-And-Gift-Basket-Ideas.com lists retirement gift basket ideas and descriptions. For a spa gift basket, the site suggests including scented lotions and candles, soap, bath salts, exfoliating foot scrub, a manicure or pedicure kit, and a personalized bathrobe.
