If it’s spring, it’s spring gala and fundraiser time! And for most organizations, that also means gift baskets for raffles or for the silent auction.


We’ve put together an example signup to give you an idea of how to get lots of great volunteers to do the heavy-lifting.  Like Mom used to say, Many hands make light work!


Check out our example Gift Basket Signup here. 


You’ll find a:


  • Date Night Basket
  • Book Lover Basket
  • Splish Splash Baby Bath Basket (say that three times fast)
  • A Taste of Italy Basket
  • Mom’s Night In Basket
  • Spa Day Basket

Love this colander idea from Wine.com


We also added a donation signup at the end. Sometimes it’s easier to just have people donate funds so that your committee can go out and purchase the items. This can help with consistency with color and branding for your big event. Don’t forget that you can collect money directly via the Signup Tool with our Collect Money Lists.


When creating your baskets, consider decorative touches like dried lavender that not only look good, but smell good too!

We liked the tasteful styling and colors used for the gift baskets on this website. The neutral/earthen tones lend a simple yet sophisticated look. Use something fresh/dried to give it a pop of color (like the lavender above or a small succulent).


Do you have any basket wisdom to share? Any particular baskets that are highly successful year-after-year? Do tell!
