A raffle is a great way to raise funds for a worthy cause. But as you know, every raffle has to have a prize (or multiple prizes.) A prize that is very popular for both the awarder and the awarded is a thoughtfully assembled gift basket.

The idea here is to be creative and thoughtful by choosing the right combination of items in a gift basket, so that people are attracted to buy your raffle tickets.

In case you didn’t know, women love bath and body gift baskets, as well as spa gift baskets. So to attract women to buy the ruffle tickets, keeping these items are a good idea.

Men love barbecue gift baskets and sports related gift baskets and these are sure to draw men to buy the ruffle tickets. Here are some other unique gift basket ideas for raffles.

Gift Basket Ideas for Kids

While making gift basket for kids, be it your own, or your niece, nephew or a friend’s kid, it is important to know the kid’s liking. You can’t expect diplomacy from a kid when he does not like the gift. There can be nothing more embarrassing than “I hate chocolates” when you have gifted the kid a basket full of chocolates. So to avoid this situation, these are the most loved and popular gift basket ideas for kids:

Popcorn Gift Basket
You would have minimum chances of making a mistake with a popcorn gift basket for kids. This is also one of the easiest gift basket ideas to make and put together on your own. Take few chocolates, cookies, microwave popcorn, candies and a bottle of coke and place it in a movie theater popcorn box and tie a beautiful ribbon around it. The smile and excitement on the kid’s face would make it worth the effort.

Picnic Gift Basket
It is not just a great idea to gift a picnic basket to a kid, it is also considered one of the best summer gift basket ideas and fall gift basket ideas for the whole family. It also tops the list in corporate gift basket ideas due to its usefulness for all age groups. A great picnic gift basket for kid should include chocolates, lemon cookies, picnic hamper, chocolate covered nuts, sour balls, cheese sticks, cheese, nuggets, snack mix and smoked almonds.

Hopefully some of these ideas will get your creative juices flowing.
