The book begins with a discussion of the types of general supplies that are needed for all gift baskets and where to find these items. It then goes on to explain in detail the basics of constructing a basket, from filling the base and placing the products to adding the finishing touches and sealing it all up. Perhaps the greatest benefit of this book are the clear, detailed instructions for creating specific baskets for a wide range of occasions and milestones, including:
Photos throughout let readers see exactly how much glue to use or where a skewer should be attached or how a finished basket should look. A special section showcases the favorite baskets of actual designers from around the country, with notes on why each is popular.
No other book offers the same level of detailed guidance on how to create baskets that are retail-store perfect. This is the only reference that gift-basket professionals or amateurs will need to hone their basket-designing skills.
