Tips For Giving Baby Gift Baskets


Visitors: 447

Gift baskets have grown in popularity. They make an interesting, thoughtful gift that can be made to suit almost any occasion. A baby gift basket gives you a chance to make a unique and personal gift. You can give a baby gift basket either at the baby shower or after the baby is born as a homecoming gift.

You can buy professionally made gift baskets or ready made gift baskets, but there is something a little special about making the gift basket yourself. When you make it yourself you can add whatever you like and style it how you want. You can watch the cost by making your own because you can make it as big or as small as you desire, plus you can seek out specials that will give you discounts on what you fill the basket with. Making your own gift basket just makes sense.

Themed gift baskets are great gifts. There are many theme ideas for baby gift baskets. The following list is just the beginning of ideas. Use your own creativity to come up with a unique theme for your basket.

-bath time basket: You can use a baby tub as the basket and fill it with washcloths, a cute hooded towel and bath supplies.

-clothing basket: Using a cute wicker laundry basket and filling it with socks, onesies, shoes and a cute outfit makes this theme.

-feeding basket: For the bottle-fed baby, you can put in a can of formula or coupons for formula, bottles, a bottle cleaner, burp cloths and extra nipples.

-Health and safety: Something often forgotten about until the need arises, this basket can include, a thermometer, medicine dropper, nail care kit and some childproofing items.

The basic supplies you need are easy to find at a craft or discount store. You need a basket or other container of your choice to make the foundation of the basket. You will also need some sort of filler, like tissue paper, raffia or a fabric item. You can also buy cellophane to enclose the basket when you are finished. Finally you need the items that you will put inside. You can base these on a theme or just buy various items you think the baby needs. That is all you need to make an effective baby gift basket.

Arranging your baby gift basket is a matter of taste. Generally you will keep larger items in the back and smaller items in front. Try to make everything visible and keep items from falling under or behind other items. Once you think you have it, stand back and take a good look. It may take some adjusting, but the whole process of making your gift basket shouldn’t take an extreme amount of time.
