4 Holiday Gift Basket Ideas That Even Santa Will Envy

Posted by Cascade Village

One of the greatest pleasures of the holiday session is the joy of gift-giving. But sometimes it can be challenging to come up with the perfect gift, especially if it’s for someone you don’t know very well. Luckily, gift baskets can be a quick and easy option. So, we put together four different holiday gift basket ideas for all your holiday gifting needs. The best part?  You can build them with one trip to the Cascade Village Shopping Center. 

These ideas are sure to please everyone, from the pet lovers to the tech lovers! 

Holiday Gift Basket Ideas for All

To build a great gift basket, it usually helps to pick a theme ahead of time. Doing so helps create a cohesive gift and prevents you from looking like you threw in whatever without giving much thought. 

To help you get started, we’ve put together four gift basket themes: the pet lover, the adventurer, the foodie, and the techie. We’re confident your giftee will fall into at least one of these categories (and if not, go for the foodie option, because who doesn’t love food?).

#1: For the Pet Lover

If your giftee has a special furry friend, a pet-themed gift basket is a great way to go! At the CVSC, we have a ton of different shops with goodies for pets, including PetSmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, and even Ross. 

Start by grabbing some adorable pet toys from Bed Bath & Beyond. 

Then, head over to PetSmart to pick up some tasty treats. While you’re there, you might add in a festive collar and some doggie bags or a cute cat bed and some catnip

Finally, stop by Ross to pick up some optional doggie accessories like a cozy sweater or a stylish leash. Sometimes they even have matching sweaters for the pet and the owner!  

 #2: For the Adventurer

Maybe your giftee spends a ton of time outdoors enjoying Central Oregon! If that’s the case, an adventure gift basket is a perfect choice. You can find everything you need at Dick’s Sporting Goods and Famous Footwear.

At Dick’s, you can find a wide variety of outdoor gear. They’ve got everything from camping to hiking and even snow sports supplies. They’ve even got supplies for more relaxing outdoor activities, like hanging out in a hammock

Swing by Famous Footwear on your way out to grab a few pairs of socks or a hat and glove combo to keep your giftee warm in the cold winter weather. 

 #3: For the Foodie

Food gift baskets are a simple way to please even the most challenging giftees. And with great options like Trader Joe’s, Food For Less, and even World Market, it’s easy to throw a food basket together in a flash.

If your giftee is a fan of novelty holiday treats, Trader Joe’s is the perfect place to stop. With tons of seasonal items, you can easily find something festive. 

Stop by Food For Less next and stock up on all the essentials to make the perfect charcuterie board, including meats, cheeses, sauces, crackers, and even vegan options. Or, get all the ingredients needed for some homemade treats

If you’re searching for an eclectic range of tasty snacks, World Market has got you covered. 

#4: For the Techie

If your giftee is a fan of the latest gadgets, Best Buy has got you covered. 

Are they always looking for the newest kitchen gadget? Or maybe they’re hoping to spruce up their home office or gaming setup. No matter what they’re into, Best Buy has tons of options to surprise and delight the techie in your life. 

And, don’t feel like you have to break the bank in order to put together a great tech basket. Smaller gadgets like a wireless mouse, or an elite kitchen spice grinder can make great additions to add to your techie’s collection.
