Popular Gift Baskets Ideas for Christmas

Are you planning Christmas gifts for the people in your life? Working out your Christmas gift strategy can be stressful whether you've got 12 nieces to buy for or you're a Secret Santa for one. Gift baskets are a great solution. Gift Barn are experts in gifts so we’re bringing you a list of our top Christmas gift ideas and we're confident you can find something for everyone on your list.

1. Sweet Treats

Sending someone sweet Christmas wishes like Giftbarn's Little Sweetie or Sweet Tooth gift box is a surefire Christmas hit. Beautifully presented and brimming with goodies from decadent Kapiti candies to silky smooth House of Chocolate truffles.

2. Cheese Fanatic

There are plenty of serious cheese fans out there - who doesn't love a delicious wedge of creamy camembert with their glass of wine? - and Gift Barn has the perfect gift for them. An Acacia cheese board and spreader comes with the special Rosenborg Danish Camembert.

3. Christmas Shortbread

Don't underestimate the power of traditional Christmas shortbread. A beautifully packed tin of Molly Woopy's Sugar 'n Spice Star Shape Shortbread is a super popular Christmas gift and Gift Barn can deliver it for you wherever you need it to go. 

4.  Good Times at the Bach

Give your favourite family a memorable holiday treat with one of our most popular gift baskets - the Xmas Bach Box. Jam packed with Christmas goodies from Christmas Cake and Gingerbread to Gourmet Red Pepper Pesto and Honey Roasted Peanuts. It's a hit with everyone.

4. Christmas Classic - Champagne and Chocolate

Good ideas become classics for a reason - Champagne and handmade chocolate truffles is a favourite not only during the holiday season, but all year round. Crisp and effervescent, champagne makes a perfect pairing with the rich velvet chocolate flavours.

5. A Romantic Christmas Picnic

We couldn't make a holiday gift list without including one of our favourite Christmas hampers - a picnic basket for two that includes your choice of wine or Champange, Danish Brie and crackers, French Pork Pate, and Bennetts of Mangawhai Fruit Truffles for Christmas pudding. Perfect.

I was delighted with the gift basket I ordered for mum on her birthday. She was thrilled with the way it was presented and especially pleased with the gift card which used a lovely font and seemed more personal. They also delivered on time. Thank you so much, I will definitely be ordering from you again.

My daughter has lived in New Zealand for over 10 years. We always send her and her family gifts for every occasion which costs and American arm and leg. I've looked many times to find a NZ Company I could order from to send local and the other day I found this company. I ordered one day and it was delivered the next. My daughter loved it. She said that the different products in the basket were the best quality and local products. I am so happy to have found this website. Thank you so much,
