People often believe that gift baskets are the perfect gift because they are thoughtful and reusable. This is not always the case. Some people even go so far as to put papers in gift baskets. These papers can contain sensitive information such as passwords, social security numbers, or even credit card numbers which could be stolen by hackers if it is not taken care of properly. To avoid putting these items in the wrong hands, it is important to shred any documents before adding them to a gift basket.
While it is certainly charming to give someone a gift basket with some homemade goodies, the wrapping paper inside of the basket may not be so pleasing. One way to make sure that your gift basket isn’t marred by unwanted packing paper is to shred it before adding it to the mix.
Shredding paper before adding it to a gift basket is a great idea. It would be an even better idea if the paper was shredded into small pieces. The whole purpose of this idea is to help keep a gift basket from looking messy and disorganized by having shredded paper scattered in it. However, you should only shred the paper if you have a shredder. Otherwise, you can just cut the paper into smaller pieces which will work just as well.
