The items in the basket should be both attractive and functional or to be more exact they should even be more useful rather than decorative. High quality of the all items given to a baby is a must. Chosen items must be safe for babies and have suggested ages. Bath products should be tearless, bedclothes and sleepwear should be of the best fabric. Usually people know the gender of the little one when they are planning to visit him or her thus they can choose special colours and theme of the products, however if you are not aware of it then neutral colour and theme can sort out the situation.
Creating a baby gift basket is actually a pleasant process that involves plenty lovely, useful baby items and your care along with creativity approach. Let us think of all items that can be included in the list of functional baby gifts.
- disposable diapers (this kind of items are always of great need)
- a container of baby wipes (essential things as well)
- a baby blanket, quilt and towels (can be easily personalized by adding some embroidered information about the baby in the corner of it)
- crib sheets and a baby pillow (it is better to know if the baby needs some bedclothes)
- rattles and plush toys (will sure add the basket a much more functional look)
Just placing the chosen items in the basket is one thing however arranging them creatively and ingeniously is another. You can start the assembly process by arranging white disposable diapers around the basket as if they are petals of an ox-eye daisy, then place all the prepared items inside and cover them with a yellow blanket as if it is a middle of the flower, finally placing a bee or butterfly rattle on it will fully complete the idea.
You can also wrap the baby items in gift tissue paper tying each with thin colourful satin ribbon and place all the little gifts in the basket or other containers such as baby tote bag or even baby bathtubs. The container should seem to be overflowing with nice things, no empty space is accepted. If you are not planning to buy many baby items think first of the size of the container to avoid empty spaces in it. If it all the same happened fill in with purchased shred.
