How to Become a Gift Basket Creator

What Does a Teenage Gift Basket Creator do?

As a gift basket creator, you’ll create gift baskets for people during the holidays. You’ll create gift baskets from your home, buying the things that are in the gift baskets and then wrapping them up into a fashionable basket. Gift baskets are a new trend, as they are extremely popular since you can send them for virtually any reason. From birthdays to Christmas, these are all potential customers throughout the year. You don’t need much equipment for your gift basket creation business and you don’t need to have much experience to create gift baskets. But you do need to be creative as you will have to generate creative ideas for new gift baskets every day.

How Much Does a Teenage Gift Basket Creator Get Paid?

As a teenage gift basket creator just starting, you can expect to earn $10 to $20 per gift basket. Gift basket creation is a very profitable business, and more people are realizing this as gift basket creation is one of the fastest growing industries. But a big problem with becoming a gift basket creator is that you will have to go around collecting items for your gift baskets every day, or have them shipped directly to you from Amazon. Also, if you’re not a creative person, this job will be hard for you. You will have to generate ideas for gift baskets and the best items to put in them, and this will be hard for people who aren’t creative.

How Can I Get Started as a Gift Basket Creator?

  1. The first thing you need to do to start your own gift basket creation business is to determine the themes of your gift baskets. All gift baskets have a theme. For example, if you have a basket for an avid barbecue dad, you can make a barbecue themed basket with barbecue sauce, tools, and much more. So, determine the themes you want to do for your gift baskets. To help with your decision, here are 13 great gift basket ideas. You’re going to want to make your gift baskets something that you easily have access to.
  2. Buy or make the items for your gift baskets. Once you’ve determined the theme of your gift basket, then you can start purchasing or making the items that will fill those gift baskets. Buy unique things that are hard to find on a day to day basis. The more unique your gift basket is, the more likely people will buy it for their loved ones. Then, once you’ve bought the items, you can wrap them into a pretty gift basket and start to sell them.
  3. Start to sell your gift baskets. You can sell them online at places like eBay or Amazon. You can also sell them in your neighborhood to your friends and their families. All you need to do is to list your gift basket online with a good picture and description of your gift basket. Don’t forget to add a list of what is in the gift basket. Then, when someone purchases it, you can just mail it to them with your local postal service.
  4. Congrats, you’re officially a teenage gift basket creator. You may have spent a long time collecting, or making the items that go into your gift basket, but now you are over that and can start selling your gift baskets. Gift basket creation is extremely profitable, as one gift basket can go for $100 dollars each. Keep on growing your business, and soon, you can expand your business with more gift basket types.
