Gift baskets date back to biblical times. There is the story of the Egyptian Royal Family that finds a gift in a basket, which was baby Moses hidden in the rushes. And there are the three wise men bringing baskets of gifts after the birth of Jesus. In the middle ages, gift giving played an important role. Kings received baskets filled with gifts, such as gold, silver and jewels. Gifts of food for impressive medieval feasts were transported in baskets. Historically gather’s used baskets for gathering food and hunters used them to store or pack out their daily catch. Baskets were woven with materials that could be found locally. Colonial times saw a simple time. The first American gift basket was traced back to the Native Americans, greeting colonists with baskets of food from their gardens. The baskets were crafted with simple materials or wooden boxes. These baskets became a way to share their plentiful supplies of good with others. In the nineteenth century, with the railroad system, this allowed them to send gift baskets further distances. Baskets have not only been used for gift baskets. For centuries they were used to carry eggs from the chicken coop to the house, harvest vegetables from the garden to the house. Baskets were also used as saddle bags on horses, donkeys and mules to carry supplies and sometimes even people. Many Native American Tribes are famous for their basket making. Most baskets are handmade even today. Even with the industrial age, baskets making is hard to do using machinery, the baskets need the same hand crafting that has been used throughout time. Gift baskets are unique because of the care and time and special attention that goes into making them so lovely to give and receive.
