How to build a fabulous, themed baby gift basket
Are you looking for a way to create a beautiful and memorable baby gift basket? Consider building one that follows a theme. If you pick an important part of a baby’s life such as feeding, sleeping or bathing, you can put together a basket of baby gifts that are functional, co ordinate and thoughtful.
A great example of a baby gift basket would be bath time. Consider using a baby bath tub as the basis for this package of baby gifts. You can fill it with washcloths, towels and even safety items such as tap covers for the bathtub. Some great baby gifts for this type of basket can include gentle soaps, shampoos and cleansers for the baby, a baby bathrobe or large hooded towels that will keep the baby warm and cozy after they are done being washed up.
Another great baby gift basket would be one to cover meal time. In the beginning, unless the baby is being bottle fed, there may not be a lot of baby gifts that would be useful. However, you may want to consider bibs that can be worn to protect baby clothes against dribbles of formula or breast milk, receiving blankets that can be used as cover for a nursing mother and even a nursing pillow that can help a new mother hold her baby in a great position for nursing.
If you know that the baby will be bottle fed, your choices in baby gifts are much more varied. You can find bottle cleaning tools, spare bottles, gifts of formula (if you know which one the parent will be using) and even spoons and bowls for when the baby gets older. A bottle warmer can be a fantastic baby gift for any new mother.
You can also purchase ready-made baby gift sets. These often include a coordinated outfit complete with hats and footwear that can look wonderful on a new child. If you do want to purchase clothing as a baby gift, consider purchasing clothes that can be worn when the child is a little older. This ensures that the parents may not need to buy clothing for some time which can be fantastic.
If there is a particular baby gift that you want to purchase for someone but it is out of your price range, consider going together with several people in order to make a large gift more affordable. This can be a fantastic way for people to be able to gift large ticket items such as strollers, playpens and high chairs. If you are doing this, you may want to include a few small items from each person along with the larger item so that you are still able to have something separate that is from everyone.
By putting together a fun and thoughtful baby gift basket it is easy for you to ensure that a new child has everything they need to be properly cared for in their early days. It shows the mother that you are thinking of their needs and that you are looking forward to the arrival of the new baby with love and excitement.
