Bar/Bat Mitzvah Gift Baskets With Personality

With all the details that go into planning your child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah, there’s bound to be something overlooked!

Baskets for out-of-town guests add a nice personalized touch and are sometimes remembered at the last minute. Lisa Chalker from Family Affair Distributing Inc. can create a great basket based on your budget and the amount of time you give her to create!

In the example left and below, the Bar Mitzvah boy’s colors were black, silver and lime green. They brought in the silver box which was filled with delicious munchies the guests could snack on in the hotel room. The lime green popcorn made a big hit and so did the custom Hershey Bar with a laminated label, both of which added to the personalization of the basket.

The Hershey Bar had the Bar Mitzvah boy’s picture on it with lots of fun facts about him and about the Bar Mitzvah, all with full color graphics. The guests could then enjoy the Hershey Bar and save the wrapper as a momento, since it’s laminated.

The cost of the baskets begin at $30 (not including tax and deliver/shipping charges) and they try to customize it as much as possible depending on the amount of time given before the actual Bar/Bat Mitzvah date.

Lisa likes to talk with the family to find out what their budget is and what they might like in the baskets.

After they load the basket with munchies, they seal the baskets with printed cello and a custom-handmade bow.
