How to create a baby gift basket?

1. Determine the Size
For creating a baby gift basket, you should determine the size of the basket. If you feel that you won’t be in a position to fill a large basket, you should preferably use a small basket. You need to buy one such basket, raffia or tissue paper for filling, baby blankets, straw or shredded grass that you will easily find in any craft stores.

2. Is it a Boy or a Girl?
Next consideration is whether the baby is a boy or girl. Also, whether the baby has been already born. That way you can arrive at a decision as what things will be required by the baby. Another thing to consider is whether the baby is the first child or not. If it is not the first arrival at the home, then the mother of the child will be having most of the necessary things already at home.

3. Be Imaginative
An imaginative idea would be the use of a small laundry basket that could sit upon a dresser or a baby bath tub or anything such as baby diaper bag instead of using a actual gift basket. If it is the first child in the home you can easily include most of the basic things such as baby toys, rattles, baby shampoos, lotions, wiping diapers, burp clothes, bibs, diaper rash ointments and various baby clothes.

4. Second or Third Birth
If it is the case of second or third birth, you can create a smaller basket including items for the other children that will not let them feel left aside. You can fill with items such as coloring puzzles, toys or snacks. You can also gift a labor basket to a mother who is expecting with items that are needed at the hospital or relaxation tape or CD, slippers, magazines, candy, hair clip, bubble bath, disposable camera, calling card or gift certificates.
