Choosing a baby shower gift should be fun. Everyone wants to give a baby gift that is unique and affordable. By grouping together items you can create a unique baby gift basket that won't break the bank.
The first thing to do is to set your budget. Some smart shopping will ensure that you won't go over budget and still have enough items to fill your baby basket.
Next, select a theme. Your theme can be as simple as color or animals or as elaborate as bath time. Don't leave out overlooked items, such as baby safety, or baby health. This is especially true for first time parents. They will need these important items for baby.
Be creative with your baby basket filler. Instead of using clean crumpled newsprint fill the basket with baby diapers. If the prepackaged diapers won't fit into your basket, line the basket with a clear, clean trash bag, then your diapers. It will be a practical and welcome surprise for mom to be!
Find practical containers. Sure, mom will need some storage baskets, but she'll also need a diaper bag. Why not fill a diaper bag with diapers? You can set other items on top of the diapers for display.
Finally, wrap your baby gift basket in some tulle or cello wrap. Adorn your gift basket with some curling ribbon or some more tulle and artificial flowers. Attach a card and give your baby gift basket knowing you put lots of thought and love into it without breaking your budget.
