Gift baskets are a fun, personalized way to give a gift, and I love putting them together. Hunting for the perfect mix of items for someone special is always exciting! But how do you make your basket look good? Follow these tips, and you’ll get it right every time:

1. Make sure that the basket (or whatever you are using) is the appropriate size. You’ll want the items to fit nicely, without a lot of room to slide or move around.

2. Fill the bottom of the basket with crumpled paper, decorative grass or fabric. You’ll want the items to be lifted, so you can see all of the goodies.

3. Start by placing tall items in the back.

4. Put the smaller items up front. Make sure that labels are turned to the front.

5. Once you have all the items in place, tuck extra grass or stuffing into gaps to stabilize the items.

6. Wrap the basket with cellophane. You’ll want about two and a half times the height of the basket.

7. Add the bow and voilà

Dear Tillamook Cheese Factory,

I tried several times to reach you to order a gift for a client, but each time my phone call was disconnected. I used the 1.800.542.7290 phone number. When I used the area code 503 number, it said, "All circuits are busy". This happened several times.

Do you still have a "store" where gifts and food items can be ordered?

Thanks for your feedback.

Hi L,

Sorry about that! We were having some phone trouble and our IT team is working on fixing it. One of our Gift Shop employees emailed you and provided a phone number for you to call, so be sure to check your email. You can certainly place a phone order for cheese or other gifts and have them shipped. You can also purchase some items from our online store:

Thank you for letting us know about this!
