Buyer's Guide to the Best Gift Baskets as a Birthday Present

Author: Nicole Adler   Date Posted:20 June 2016 

Gift baskets or gift hampers can become lifesavers when you’re looking for perfect birthday gifts to give to your family and friends. Instead of buying a single item that they may or may not like, you can just give them one gift basket with heaps of things they can choose from. You can even give gift baskets as birthday gifts to multiple people if they belong to the same family or group of friends. They can just sort it out on their own. This ensures that you’ll be able to give at least one thing that they will surely appreciate or that they can share with other people.
Gift baskets are also great birthday gifts for when you already have that one item you want to give them but want to include a variety of products as an added bonus. These types of birthday gifts are both practical and convenient for both you and the birthday celebrant. Though sometimes filling gift baskets on your own to give as birthday gifts can sometimes be stressful even when you just put a little effort into it. There’s no need to worry though as there are plenty of gift baskets that have been customised for different types of people.
Baby Hampers

Just because babies aren’t old enough to tell you if they like their birthday gifts or not doesn’t mean that you can’t give them birthday gifts or gift hampers to make their parents happy. Gifts like the Ollie Owl New Baby Hamper should cover the basics like the Hello World Book of quotations, a Marquise Soft Cotton Stretch Wrap, a Marquise 100% cotton Pear Growsuit, and a Twiggies Ollie Owl by Tiger Tribe. If you want to stretch it a bit further so that you can include something for the parents in the baby’s birthday gift basket, then you can a Baby Hamper instead which includes all those items and an additional Brown Brother's Methode Traditionelle King Valley Pinot Noir Chardonnay NV.

Beer, BBQ, and Cider Hampers

Sometimes a good drink is all people need in order to have a good time, especially when you’re bonding with friends and family. So, it’s no surprise that people also prefer giving gift hampers like the Premium United Nations Beer Hamper or the Beers of Australia Hamper which contains beer you can drink and snacks you can munch on while having a good time with friends. But if they just like sitting back and having good conversations while listening to classic jazz music, you can also give them hampers like the Red Wine & BBQ Hamper that includes Jack’s Black Label Beef Jerky, Morgan & Albert’s Premium Nibbles Brewer’s Blend, Morgan & Albert’s Premium Nibbles BBQ Peanuts, Baylies Gourmet Crackers with Sesame Seeds and a 2012 Pepperjack Shiraz by Saltram of the Barossa. These will surely create nights to remember.
No Alcohol Hampers

If good food without alcohol is their definition of fun, you cannot go wrong with Non alcoholic Hampers like the Summer Seafood BBQ Hamper that will get your friends some Rick Stein’s Savoury Oat Biscuits with Cornish Seasalt, Chefs at Work Spanish Infused Bread Dipper, Spice Thai Pilaf with Cumin, Basil & Coconut, Verlaque Lemon & Gooseberry Splash, AB Black Gold Balsamic Reduction, NoMU Seafood and Fish Spice Grinder, NoMU Seafood Rub, NoMU Moroccan Rub, Seafood Kitchen Salt & Pepper Calamari Mix, and some Seafood Kitchen Lemon & Herb Bread Crumbs. This will make any afternoon special for them, whether it’s on their birthday or just a random BBQ party with friends.
Pamper Hampers

It doesn’t need to be a stressful day to pamper yourself. Sometimes you can just choose to have a relaxing day because you’re happy it’s your birthday. Your friends and family will surely appreciate getting birthday gifts like the Pure Indulgence pamper Hamper because they can forget that there’s a world out there while chewing on some Butlers Chocolates Chocolate Fudge Gift Box and the Maison Fossier French Palmier Pastries, Maison Fossier French Almond Macarons and much more. They can then wash it down with the taste of champagne on their lips with the Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial NV Champagne.

Savoury Hampers

If your friends or family are more concerned with their tastebuds than they are with anything else, then the James Squire Ale Hamper is perfect for them if they’re into savoury treats. This hamper contains some favourites like Jack’s Black Label Beef Jerky, Morgan & Albert’s Premium Nibbles Brewer’s Blend, Morgan & Albert’s Premium Nibbles BBQ Peanuts. It also contains Baylies Epicurean Delights Plain Lavash and some Gaea Sweet Sundried Tomato Tapenade to dip and spread on your crackers while you sip on a selection of available ales.
Vegan Friendly Hampers

If you're buying for a vegetarian or vegan friend, then an ethical and sustainable vegan hamper full of gifts and treats is a wonderful idea that they will appreciate. Homewares, vegan wine, soy candles and other greats make a fab gift box for anyone.

Vouchers as Birthday Gifts

If you’re still too stressed out to even just pick the perfect hamper because of all the things you have to do, then Gifts Australia also has gift vouchers that you can give as birthday presents to make your life easier. This will allow your friends or relatives to pick out their perfect gift basket without putting too much pressure on you. This will also allow them to bond with you or someone else over choosing what to get and what not to get.
