Giving a gift basket versus a hand made gift basket is purely on preference. The advantage of one over the other is time and cost related. Many people now a day put in more than just eight hours of work to their day. If you include the travel time that many do, then a person's work day is more than just eight or ten hours.

The advantage of a given gift basket, with the busy schedule that even the giver has is time effective. You can save time by going online and choosing an appropriate gift. The gift basket retailers of today are plentiful and there are many themes, choices and prices out there to view. By choosing this method over a hand made gift basket, one can save time, money.

The disadvantage of purchasing a gift basket online is that there is no sentimentality put into the choosing of what is in the basket. The items are arranged in a premade basket. While you may be able to choose a basket that is best suited for the recipient it is still not hand made or hand picked.

The advantage of given a hand picked or hand arranged basket you may fill a basket with just items that are delightful for the recipient. These items can be all centered on one theme or item. At times by choosing this method you may be able to save a bit of money. This purely depends on how elaborate you tend to make your basket. The other advantage of a hand made gift basket is you delight in what you are centering it around. You hand pick the items.

The disadvantage of a given hand made gift basket, can also be the price. Depending on how much you fill or how many items you include in this, can be your downfall on a savings. Many people decide this method thinking they are saving, however they do not calculate today's gas prices, the time that it may take to go to one store or another to find the appropriate items.

Clearly the most convenient method is gift baskets that already made. This allows for extra time in ones day. With this method, and the choices that are out there, you are sure to delight the recipient and save time and money in your day!
