Baby Gift Basket Ideas
Sleep Time Basket
In this basket add all the items required for a baby’s sleep. You can include a cute mattress, a baby blanket, a small pillow, a small milk bottle, a small rattle and a packet of diapers.
Try to color coordinate the items and wrap the basket in a beautiful gift paper. If you are not sure about baby’s gender you can buy all the stuff in some neutral color like red, green or yellow.
Another interesting and useful idea will be to present a bath time basket in which you can pack all toiletries along with a towel. You can include bottles of shampoo, soap, lotion, oil, powder, etc.
You can also add some fun by adding bathing toys like like fish and duck. Just make sure to stuff the basket with good quality bathing products and a good quality soft towel which the parents can use for baby.
Very few people present books to babies as the first time gift. If you make a nice basket for the baby with colorful baby books, it will make a unique and memorable gift.
Do not hesitate in gifting baby books to infants. Lots of books meant for infants are available in the market. Try to pick books with big font size and huge prints.
Beach Time Basket

Winter Clothing Basket
Another interesting idea is to make a basket full of winter clothes. You can include a sweater, a woolen blanket, socks, mittens, cap, warmers , etc. in the basket. If winters or rains are approaching near then you can make a baby gift basket accordingly.
