If you’re looking for a unique and thoughtful gift idea, look no further than this segment of The Marc and Mandy Show. Today on the show, DIY Expert Deanne Duke shows Marc how to create four unique twists on the traditional gift basket.


Twist # 1: For The Gardening Lover

To recreate this adorable basket, you’ll need a large planter (with a handle), a sun hat, and a whole bunch of gardening supplies, such as gloves, a knee pad, a sprinkler, flower pots, plant markers, seeds, and whatever else you can think of. Simply stuff the large planter with your gardening supplies and top it all off with a sunhat tied to the handle. 


Twist # 2: For The Cooking Enthusiast

This gift basket twist would suit anyone from a seasoned chef to a university student to a young professional to a single dad. It’s also very simple to pull off. You’ll need a crockpot, cooking utensils, oven mitts, decorative dish rags, and non-perishable food items (such as canned items or pasta) of your choosing. Stuff your cooking-related items into a crockpot and you’re good to go!


Twist # 3: For The Barbecue Expert

Got a grill guy – or girl – in your life? Look no further than this gift basket, which encompasses a caddy, an apron, a beer, cooking utensils, and sauces and spices of your choosing. To boot: the caddy is totally reusable, and can help keep your grill guy or girl organized later on. 


Twist # 4: “Man Crate”

This ultra-creative gift basket is slightly unusual in function, in that your guy will have to really work for the gifts within. At first blush, your receiver will see a crate and a crowbar. If he manages to get the crate open, he will see personalized gifts such as aftershave, cologne, and whatever else your man is partial to.
