Getting Started On Baby Gift Baskets, Great For Daddies Too!

Aug 21, 2008
Baby showers are usually held to given to signify the expected arrival of a new life. These affairs are usually filled with excitement and fun. The feelings that surround a mothers pregnancy or a babys birth are those of joy and excitement. Perhaps the only thing that is rather difficult is choosing what gift to give as one graces this festive occasion. A baby gift basket is a always a great gift item to give away. In his article Baby Gift Basket - The Gift to Shower on a Baby Shower.

What to give?

Now, what do you fill your baby basket with? It is natural to worry about whether the expectant parents would appreciate necessary items over luxury ones, or vice versa.

Luxury gifts are ones that do not necessarily ease the parents burden over baby needs, but are ones that a baby will enjoy having. This can include baby toys, like the ones they stare at when you dangle these items in front of them. There are also baby chairs, such as the swinging ones, where they can easily sleep in.

Necessary gifts, on the other hand, are the ones that can cater to what the baby will need. The most common of this kind of gift are baby clothes.

Expectant parents will surely appreciate receiving baby clothes since it lessens the burden of having to shop for them. However, one thing to take note about in giving baby clothes is the natural inclination of every other person attending the baby shower to give clothes. Usually, people give clothes that would fit a baby in its first six months. The problem, then, is that parents can be saddled with more clothes needed for the first six months of the baby's life, only to be unused after this duration. It is probably best to give baby clothes that can still be used even when the baby grows a bit bigger than six months old. It is always good to anticipate things, as they say. Other baby necessities include baby powder, utensils and such.

Baby gift baskets can be designed with ones chosen theme. But what theme would be best?

The determination of that decision would rely on what you know about your recipient. Are the expectant parents an outgoing couple? Then perhaps they would appreciate a fun and flavorful design. Are they of the practical sort? Maybe they would relate more with a design that is simpler or more direct. The distinction between what to design and what not to will always be based on what you think the recipients would go for.

It is also wise to take note that this particular gift idea could do well as a present to the expectant father too. Daddies who are often as stressed out (or more clueless) than expectant mummies need all the help they can get, so an arsenal of early child rearing tools and know-how could prove really useful as emphasized by Ken Marlborough.

New dad baby gift baskets should be equipped with all items needed to assist the dad in taking care of his new baby. The basket can include a baby bottle, shampoo, medicine dropper, baby sniffs, and baby detergents, cuddle toys, diapers, burp cloths, a hair brush, baby books, baby blankets, and crib sheets. New dad baby gift baskets can also be packed with photo albums, photo frames, a diaper-apron tool belt or a diaper bag, and musical CDs of lullabies.
