A special baby shower gift can be a gift basket. Imagine – a nice basket filled with items that any mother and baby would be delighted to receive! You can buy a specialty baby gift basket ready-made, or you can create one yourself, tailor made to the new baby and its mother.
A specialty baby gift basket is usually focused on a theme. Let’s take a look at some popular themes, and see how you can create a personalized baby gift basket for the new baby in your life.
Toys – The Fun Of Babyhood
A fun specialty baby gift basket to make is a toy basket. This can be done by picking an age group to buy toys for: six months, or age one works particularly well. Then buy some toys that are perfect for that age group.
A baby who is six months old would appreciate things to teethe on as those sharp pearly whites are breaking through the gumline. Or noise-making toys that can be
For the one year old, consider getting nesting blocks that also stack on top of each other. Or a pull toy, perfect for a new walker.
Get Out The Rubber Ducky – It’s Bathtime!
A bath time basket full of specialty baby gifts can be fun. Sample things to include would be bath soap, bubble bath, baby lotion, a washcloth, and a hooded towel. Maybe even include a cozy sleeper to put on after the bath.
Focus On Diapers – A Necessary Part Of Parenting
Whether the new mom is using cloth diapers or disposables, she’s gonna go through a ton of diapers during the first few years of parenting. A specialty gift basket for her baby that is all about diapers would be a real blessing!
Find out first whether the new mom will be using cloth diapers or disposables – or a combination of the two. That will determine what types of diapers you’ll put in the specialty baby gift basket.
If she’s using just disposables, give her plenty! Not too many in the smallest of sizes – but other than that, she will appreciate any disposable diapers you give her.
If she’s going to use cloth diapers, she’d love to get some of them. They are each more expensive than disposables, so getting her just a few would be terrific. Don’t forget diaper covers – the most colorful part of the whole package! Diaper covers come in many patterns and styles.
Of course, if she’s doing a mix – mix it up yourself! And include baby powder, wipes, and diaper rash ointment!
