A great idea when trying to come up with newborn baby gifts is to put together a basket of handy items that the parents will appreciate during the first few weeks after the birth. In a similar way to traditional food hampers at Christmas and other special occasions you can tailor a baby gift basket to the parent’s lifestyle or to a particular area such as bath time or bed time for example.
A bath time gift basket might contain baby shampoo, baby bubble bath, a soft baby towel and some bath time toys for some playing time. Another idea is to make up a basket with different sized disposable nappies. Nappies are always needed and don’t worry too much about sizes as supermarkets and outlets are usually more than happy to swap for a bigger size. Throw in some baby wipes and cotton wool for good measure and you’ve made up a baby changing time basket.
If creating your own basket seems far too much hard work then you can get pre-packaged baby gift baskets. They tend to come in combinations of soft cuddly toys, baby grows, soft fleecy blankets and booties for example. They come in many different sizes to fit most people’s budgets and make a lovely presented gift.
