Usually, many people buy generic gift baskets that are selling out in retail stores, department stores, and grocery stores thinking that they can give them to the certain people in their life. 
Here I am going to share few ideas that you can do with a gift basket if you really don’t like it. There are actually several things you can do  for the gift basket. It is better to recycle the gift basket instead of throwing it out. 

Create a Centerpiece with Gift Basket

Usually gift baskets are well arranged and beautifully wrapped. A creative way to recycle it is just use it as a centerpiece. You can use it as a centerpiece for your dining room table or another part of your house!
Of course just placing the gift basket in the center of the table is not enough to create a beautiful and eye pleasing centerpiece. You can  fill  the basket with full of goodies.
For example, if the gift basket is with non-edible items, then use some potpourri in it. Many people like the smell of potpourri and some sweet-smelling potpourri can be a good way to fill the basket instead of just getting rid of it.

Giving your Gift Basket to someone who likes it

Instead of letting the basket sit around the house for days, months, and years on ,give it away to another friend or family relative. However before you give it away, you can always fill the gift basket with plenty of goodies.

Create Fruit Baskets

Fruit baskets are other common gift baskets to give or receive. These baskets actually involve the fruit that many people like to enjoy. If you frequently have guests to your house, one suggestion would be to constantly fill the gift basket with fruits and place it out in the open. so that the gift baskets/fruit basket will be readily accessible for all the friends and family members. They will happily enjoy some fruits during the period they spend at your place.
Oranges, apples, and pears are some of the great tasting fruits to fill the basket.
Finally, use gift baskets to  make your house look more beautiful or re-gift the gift basket to someone who like it.These are two wonderful ways to make use of the gift basket you were originally given as a gift!
