Gift baskets make excellent gifts. You can give a gift basket for any occasion.
Gift baskets are a wonderful way to give several smaller gift items at one time. A gift basket can be made up for any occasion; birthday, graduation, housewarming, holiday, and gift baskets are especially wonderful when given as a baby shower gift or as a welcome home gift for baby.
Think about all the awesome items you can put in a gift basket—from necessities to all sorts of extras. For example, if you have been invited to a baby shower then thoughts of what to get the baby as well as what the new parents will need, are probably overwhelming. Giving a baby gift basket can help you incorporate all the items you decide to give.
Often times, new parents need a tremendous amount of baby necessities such as diapers, baby lotions and powders, baby blankets, towels and wash cloths. All of these items can be put in a beautiful baby gift basket. You can arrange the gift basket in any way you choose, by size, color, or specific items. This beats a huge gift bag any day!
Go one step further and add a few personalized baby gifts into the mix as well. These days it is possible to personalize anything you so desire. Personalizing gifts makes them so much more, well, personal. Use baby’s name or initials. If your gift is for a baby shower and the baby’s name has not been chosen you can personalize items with the baby’s last name.
Other great personalization ideas are using the baby’s date of birth, astrological sign–the symbol or the actual icon, and even a nickname. Personalize blankets, bibs, burp cloths, plush baby toys, and even baby onesies. All of these items will fit nicely in nice sized baby gift baskets and will certainly make an impression. The parents will be pleasantly surprised to see their baby’s name or initials on several of the gift items. This really shows that you have put in a bit of extra effort to make your gifts of choice special. The simple act of having something personalized suddenly turns it from ordinary to extraordinary.
You might be surprised to see that your gift becomes a family heirloom used by more than one generation. Personalized baby gifts are usually the gifts that are never packed away thrown away or given away. If you decide to have a gift personalized, check with the store, whether online or brick and mortar, to see if they will do the embroidery. Most stores will do this; some even do this at a low cost or even free of charge.
Do not forget, you can always do this yourself. If you know how to stitch, you can embroider a baby blanket, bib, or burp cloth on your own. This may save you some money. Doing this yourself makes the gift even more special. If you are not able to, search online for sites that will personalize any item of your choice. Some places will do this for you, even if you do not buy the item from them.
