If you have a young teenage boy in your house, the chances are they really won’t want anything pink or frilly.

It is very easy to take a simple basket and decorate it to make it look like something fit for royalty. Take a few bows and attach them to either side of the handle and wrap a string of pearls around the rim. You can also experiment with different colors such as yellow or blue.

You can co-ordinate this one so that it has many themes. If you know that the person receiving the basket prefers a certain color, then you can deck out your basket in that scheme. This could also be a very covert way of giving yourself candy for Easter!
