If your friend is an avid baseball fan, you might consider putting together a baseball themed auction basket. Include a variety of baseball gear, like gloves and hats, as well as a game ticket. A baseball fanatic might also enjoy a DVD or a game on the big screen. Depending on the sport, you can even include a voucher for a personal trainer session.
Another auction basket idea that’s sure to appeal to photographers is a photography basket. You can include accessories like tripods, camera bags, lenses, and a hard drive for photos. You can even include a DSLR camera kit, which is a major investment for any photographer. You can also give the gift of high-end cookware, or even cooking classes.
Decorative objects are a great way to appeal to crafters. A collection of plush yarn, a ceramic plate, or even a book about pottery can all appeal to crafters. If the recipient is an art lover, you can even include some art appreciation experiences in the basket. Including a piece of art by a popular artist will help you get a better estimate of the value of the auction basket.
Wine lovers will also appreciate a wine basket. These baskets can be simple or high-end. Some of these baskets feature custom-labeled bottles, a wine fridge, and wine reference books. Some baskets even feature airfare and accommodations, or even winery tours. You can be as creative as you wish with your auction basket ideas.
Silent auctions are a great opportunity to raise funds, and themed baskets are perfect prizes for a charity event. While they aren’t always profitable for nonprofits, they can raise a significant amount of money. With a thoughtfully curated silent auction basket, you can raise funds for the cause while giving donors an unforgettable experience.
