So when it comes to gifting people, fruits can surely make the cut. Many people nowadays present their friends and family with a big basket of fruits. This shows how much you care about that person. But even if you haven’t received any fruit baskets as a gift, doesn’t mean that you can’t make one for yourself. A fruit basket will look great on top of your dining table.

When you decide to arrange the fruit basket yourself, you open yourself up to so many new and creative ideas in which it can be designed. Given below are the simple steps by which you can create as well as decorate your very own fruit basket which you can use yourself or gift to someone else.


  • Fruit
  • Basket
  • Gift items
  • Filler
  • Bow


  1. The first thing that you need to choose is a proper container. You can go with the traditional wicker baskets or anything else that is large, sturdy and attractive enough to hold all the fruits. Pails, bowls, gift bags, flower pots, etc. are great choices.
  2. Next you need to form a cushion at the bottom of the container with the help of the filler. You can use shredded paper, raffia strips or colourful plastic basket grass. If you basket is deep it will need a thick filler to support the basket as well as make the fruit visible, while a shallow basket will only need a thin filler.
  3. Now you need to choose all the fruits that you want to put in it. You can go with all your favourite ones. Oranges, apples, grapes, bananas, pineapples, etc. are common examples of fruits presented in fruit baskets.
  4. You can also add a few other items along with the fruits if you feel so. Candies and nuts go well with fruit gifts. Candles, wrapped cheese and crackers, packages of tea and coffee as well as wine can turn out to be very thoughtful additions.
  5. You need to arrange you basket by starting with all the heavy and large items. You need to place theme in the middle of the basket and arrange all the smaller ones on their sides. Try to fill all the gaps.
  6. Tuck in all the extra pieces and finish it with a beautiful bow or ribbons. You can attach the ribbon using wires.

There you have a wonderful fruit basket ready. You can keep it for yourself or gift it to some near and dear one. Just remember to choose fruit that are unblemished and firm and also try to avoid any fruit that are small and delicate like raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries.
