Ideas for Raffle Gift Baskets

Are you planning to raffle off a gift basket and need ideas? There are many types of gift baskets. In fact, you can buy or make one for almost any theme or reason. I love shopping for anything on Amazon, so I’ll give you some suggestions for different types that I’ve found on their site. You could either order from there, or use the idea to make your own. You may be able to get local businesses to donate products for your gift basket raffle.

If you’re planning a gift basket raffle, consider what people will most likely take a chance on. And, consider where you’re going to display the basket. For example, a basket full of spa type gifts would be great for display in a beauty salon. Another example would be a basket of toys and stuffed animals for a Christmas raffle and for Valentine’s Day you could include different types of candy. Make your raffle basket something that will catch the eye and draw them in.

The Connoisseur Gourmet Gift Basket -
The Connoisseur Gourmet by Wine Country Gift Baskets –

These could be used for men or women and include wine & cheese and snack foods. Any gift basket that includes food will be a winner! I do suggest that you do not include fresh fruit unless the basket will be raffled right away. You could include dried fruit. A food gift basket is a great raffle prize choice at any time of the year.

Our favorite is the Connoisseur Gourmet Gift Basket because it includes everything so many yummy foods. This basket includes: “Ahmad English Tea (1.4oz) Naan Crisps (2.5oz) Cracked Peppercorn Crackers (2.5oz) Glacier Ridge Farms Bacon & Cheddar Cheese Spread (3.5oz) Ciao Italia Mini Ritelle Cranberry & Sesame Cookies (3.52oz) Brown Sugar Butter Cookie (0.88oz) Dark Chocolate Almond Toffee (2pc) Godiva White Chocolate Truffles (2pc) Hummus (3oz) Socado Tiramisu Milk Chocolate Truffles (2pc) Yves Thuries Dark Chocolate Ganache Truffles (2pc) Olives (3.5oz) Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate w/Caramel Square (1pc) Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate w/Caramel Square (1pc)”

3. Fun – Movie Night

Red Box Movie Night Gift Basket -

5. Especially for Men

Mens Gift Basket -

A gift basket for a man should include some type of manly food, such as spicy sausages & cheese, beef jerky, snack foods, or grilling spices and marinades. These would make a great Father’s Day raffle prize.
