Baby Gift Baskets As The Perfect Baby Choice Of Present

Jan 30, 2008
A good friend of ours just had their first baby - an adorable baby girl named Mona Lee.

We were wondering what is the perfect baby gift. So many ideas, but we finally settled on getting a baby gift basket.

Baby gift baskets can be bought pre-assembled.

But however, we have decided to collect and assemble the basket on our own.

We will go buy a huge basket with a sturdy handle at a local craft shop along with cellophane (preferably in pink or printed with a baby motif).

We will also pick up some ribbons, tissue paper, possibly a pre-inflated foil balloon with congratulations message, and of course, a nice appropriate card.

Then we started to put the items into the baby gift basket. Some items we will look for are good quality baby shoes.

After which we choose more generic items to fill up our baby gift basket.

These will include liquid baby powder (real baby powder can affect baby's breathing), a baby-safe stuffed toy, something to help mommy to relax (bath salts or similar aromatherapy products), an assortment of baby care products and last but not least, a gift certificate for a local restaurant so that both parents can enjoy an evening away from the hectic demands of new parenthood.

Baby gift baskets are an especially good choice for people who live a great distance away (like us).

As long as items are non-breakable, these gift baskets can be shipped anywhere and it is a great way to send best wishes and practical gifts to new parents and babies.

When we had our children, we were fortunate to receive many baby gift baskets.

It is really a lot of good fun and it's a good way to ensure that everyone is included in the family. It's especially good to remember any other little siblings in the family, who may probably feel somewhat left out by all the fuss over the new baby.

Including a couple of special gift for the other children is a wonderful and nice gesture of care and makes things go that much more easier while welcoming the new one to the family.

Good choices to include in your baby gift basket, for the other children will likely include toys and games that they are able to operate by themselve.

So you need to be conscious of their ages, since buying a toy or game beyond their age range will require adult assistance and likely result in disappointment for the kids, rather than the original intended distraction.

Indeed, buying or assembling a baby gift basket is a great way to personalize your present.

The extra time it may take to make your gift just right will definitely be appreciated by the new parents and the practicality of the gift will make their job that much easier to start with.
