You'll need a solid wholesale suppliers list, know about different types of materials and how to use them, and be very knowledgeable about good design techniques. Your creativity will be your main tool.
You will want to make certain to be organized from the start, keeping careful records of money spent on supplies, and keeping your supplies themselves placed safely where you can find what you need easily.
Advertising can be done in all the traditional methods, but visuals are everything. When you have photos of your work, samples of your work, or give your baskets as gifts, everyone will be able to see what a talented gift basket designer you are, and you will begin to see those same people ordering from you.
This is really something you can have fun doing, and others will appreciate your work!
